Lyrics

What the paper says is what the newspaper does
What the TV says is just the shit they make up
I saw seventeen people in trailers they had drowned in the flood
And I guess I felt sorry but the truth is that I don’t feel at all

I want a new heart

When the candle falls the curtains want to join in
As the flames will dance the beams and pillars will sing
Oh what a heavenly chorus we’ll raise in the destruction of days
The crescendo’s been building since the apple went and tempted the snake

And I want to sing along
And I want a new heart
I don’t what I did to this one, I just can’t get it to start
So I, want a new one

Where the people are is where the loneliness grows
But it just feels like living if you get used to living alone
I saw twenty six people paired up like they were being in love
But that made twenty seven so I tipped my hat and smiled and shrugged

Cause I don’t feel like being in love
And I want a new heart
I don’t what I did to this one, I just can’t get it to start
So I, want a new one
If all the secrets are true then the truth must be secret
But the lion don’t care what the lamb has been keeping
As it drips from his jaws says you got to taste to believe it
Cause just be seeing or feeling you don’t quite get to fearing
Dripping all over the room from corpse to ceiling
In a river of what man you won’t believe I’m believing but

The truth is that the truth don’t mean nothing if the truth ain’t your friend
And I want to believe again

And I want a new heart
I don’t what I did to this one, think it was shot from the start
And I want a new soul
Cause it’s as if this one was made for me with the excess of a heart shaped hole
