The New

My familiar sky

All tangled up in blue

Us silly city kids

Always looking for the new

The future’s at the door

Got some decisions for you

But all the scenes are a blur

The constellations kind of crude

Just says

Come with me

Come with me

See what could be

I got it all figured out

I think we’re finally

I hope we never die

Cause I don’t want to know the truth

I’ll spend the afterlife

Still looking for the new

Fields of desire and fear

Look the same from the roof

But when you look real near

There’s tiny pieces in the ruin

So come with me

Come with me

See what could be

I got it all figured out

I think we’re finally free

I dig my feet right into the sand

Until I’m swallowed entirely oh

I’m falling deep into the rabbit hole

Everything’s getting wild

There’s all these shadow beings

Talking in tongues and trying to, trying to sell me things

I’m a leaf in a field, I’m a speck, I’m the king

Feels like I never need to go back home

I stop to wonder, if this is it?

If this is my life and when I die if everything I’ve seen

Was just my time before my eyes and if it was I think it’s alright

Just means that none of us are really alone

Going through the gears, my fears and tears give me hope

I know I’m slow to show but there’s things inside that you just don’t want to know

Come on and get rough with me

We’re headed for the silent sea

And I think we’re finally going to get there

I think we’re finally going to get there

I think we’re finally going to get there

Everybody lights out.
