All Things New

lyrics

Got a little demon creeping up my spine, pulling my strings, looking out my eyes, eating my food and fucking my wife. Driving my car. Tells me when it's time to leave.
But I've been feeling pretty anxious lately, with all the things that used to satiate me. I just want to let the water take me. I just want to make all things new.

So just cry if you've gotta, let it die if you wanna
What were you hoping to find?
Cry if you gotta, let it die if you wanna
Whatever you're hoping to find, it's a big fucking waste of your time.

Got a bad feeling I put a thorn in my side when I took a favorite whore and I made her my wife. A thousand tiny cuts, such a pretty little knife but I just wanna make all things new.
You wanted me to teach you how to speak the truth but you choked on the words at the first taste you got of some ugly truth about you.
And you wanted me to hang around and see you through, but every time I turn around you're never really there, you're on to something new.

Time seems like a circle to me when you lie in that way I could never believe. So I think you ought to get over yourself, you need to get over yourself. Why don't we get over ourselves?

So just cry if you've gotta, let it die if you wanna
What were you hoping to find?
Cry if you gotta, let it die if you wanna
Whatever you're hoping to find, You're a big fucking waste of my time.

Had a little demon, grew twice in size. Been pulling my strings, looking out my eyes, been wearing my skin like a goddamn prize, but we just want to make all things new.
I've been feeling pretty reckless lately and all the things that used to motivate me, they're at the bottom of the river, maybe I just want to make all things new.
