NEW THING COMING

What's that felony melody pervading through the static?
Parading masquerading with the haircut tragic.
You hear no message though the lips are moving,
just an automatic tuner and a mouthful of cruel.
Can genius appear in a bottle of whisky?
Can intelligence come through a cup of coffee?
I don't know if this is real so I won't say sorry,
I'll keep on looking for a different story.

Or another sign, or a different line, to open up some minds.

New thing coming. A new thing coming around.
They couldn't save their lives, they didn't see it coming.
A new thing coming. A new thing coming around.
They couldn't save their lives, they didn't see it come, come, coming.

I can't escape it, it's boring me stiff,
there's no risk in the lyric or the hint of a riff.
Inconsistency from them to me is too much to miss,
but of all the things I hate there's none as bad as this -
I get a bar-room brawl in my square foot of floor, they get security guards and a ride to the door.
I've got a ready mind - I'm not scared to use it,
they've got a star on the door and a head full of stupid.

I need another sign, or a different line, I wanna blow some minds!

New thing coming. A new thing coming around.
They couldn't save their lives, they didn't see it coming.
A new thing coming. A new thing coming around.
They couldn't save their lives, they didn't see it coming.

When all is said and done, I am not the only one
to think about the lie.
But I am not a lie.
I am not a lie.

New thing coming. A new thing coming around.
They couldn't save their lives, they didn't see it coming.
A new thing coming. A new thing coming around.
They couldn't save their lives, they didn't see it coming.
A new thing coming.(DEPTH CHARGE COMING).A new thing coming around.
They couldn't save their lives, they didn't see it coming.
