lyrics

When I was a child
And the whole world was enchanted
A mad magician haunted all my dreams
But then the magic was dispelled
I’m rid of ghosts, rid of hell
And mad scientists tell me magic isn’t real,
but I wake screaming still.

I need new ones
New ones clawing at my door
I need new ones
New ones sawing up through my floor

Ever since I was a boy
I’ve known there was an awful choice
Between a heart that’s dead and one that bleeds
But heart strings tugged me ‘long a branch
Trusting ev’ry shaky inch
And snap, the ground came rushing up at me.

I been told that for my health
gotta dig down deep inside myself
and wonder at and worship what I find.
But the best those gods can ever do
Is make all of your dreams come true
Just the ones that occur to you… in your mind

I need new ones
New ones clawing at my door
I need new ones
New gods sawing up through my floor.
