Need help understanding Cipher

I feel like an idiot, and maybe I just need more coffee, but the Cipher mechanic confuses me.  "Cipher (Then you may exile this spell card encoded on a creature you control. Whenever that creature deals combat damage to a player, its controller may cast a copy of the encoded card without paying its mana cost.)"

If and when you cast a copy, which is the encoded card that you may cast a copy of, the creature or the exiled instant or sorcery card with the Cipher mechanic?  I'm getting mixed up over the ideas of encoded vs. encoded on.  Thank you very much in advance.

The card with Cipher is the encoded card.
