lyrics

I was sick for a year
Self indulgently blue
Trying to drag myself clear
From the beast in the room
Leave me my apathy
It's all that settles me now
Newspaper articles
Blown out to show the world
Wearing out
It's the flat fattened carcass on the road
It's the phone lines heaving with crows
Metal buttons in the
Hard won ground
Where the first men drowned

New blood new blood
Should be coming up soon
New blood new blood
Should be coming up soon

Take my hand now my dear
Set these omens aside
Loud voices soon disappear
But little tokens abide
Show me some joi de vivre
It's all that setles me now
Sleeps in your dirty hair
Taste of your sudden breaths
In and out
It's the third best home I've ever found
It's the only persona I'll allow
When I see you in some future time
With a kid who Isn’t mine

New blood new blood
Should be coming up soon
New blood new blood
Should be coming up soon

It takes a lot of time to disenchant a dreamer
A little less to dispossess a dream
When everything you lose just makes you leaner
And let’s you see the spaces in between
Yes I’m tired, but I know what’s required
To kill the pain

New blood new blood
New blood new blood
New blood new blood
New blood new blood
