The Jazz Butcher Lyrics The New World


The New World
You wanted it all now you live with it
So there isn't much room in your grown-up world
But it's not what you imagined when you were a girl
Not the new world

Sitting around not a bit of it
There just aren't enough hours in the average day
You try to forget but it won't go away
Not the new world

But there's scarely a glimpse of it now
It's hidden in a dark recess of your cold heart
You've tried revive it but you don't know how
Your customary life won't give way

You've been alone for a long time now
And your friends understand after all these years
But it's not desolation that prompted your tears
It's the new world (x3)

Distressed Gentlefolk
We were deeply confused young men when we made this record. Max, Jones and I had all been drinking dangerously for over a year now. Generally, we had it down in concert. In just about every other department, however, we were coming to bits, individually and collectively, and to me this record actually shows the morbid state of things at the time.
