New Alphabet
by Eels

Album: Wonderful, Glorious (2013)
  • You know what?
    I'm in a good mood today
    Well I'm so happy
    It's not yesterday
    Man it was brutal
    With glad use of tissues
    I guess you could say
    That I had issues

    But it's looking good
    I've dug my way out
    I'm changing up
    What the story's about

    When the world stops making sense
    Just taking what you can get
    When the people on the street
    Start looking like silhouettes
    When the words just sound like noise
    I need a new alphabet
    When the world stops making sense
    I make a new alphabet

    Small thinking people
    With their small thinking ways
    I don't have time
    To hear what they say
    This is my world
    I'm staking my claim
    Thanks for the invite
    No thanks just the same

    It's looking good now
    Full speed ahead
    I'll live today
    Like tomorrow I'm dead

    When the world stops making sense
    Just taking what you can get
    When the people on the street
    Start looking like silhouettes
    When the words just sound like noise
    I need a new alphabet
    When the world stops making sense
    I make a new alphabet

    I see, everything
    Is crystal clear
    It's here

    You know what?
    I'm in a good mood today
    Well I'm so happy
    It's not yesterday
    Man it was brutal
    But it's all in the past
    It's good to know it don't have to last

    When the world stops making sense
    Just taking what you can get
    When the people on the street
    Start looking like silhouettes
    When the words just sound like noise
    I need a new alphabet
    When the world stops making sense
    I make a new alphabet Writer/s: JEFFREY SCOTT LYSTER, KELLEY LOGSDON, MARK O. EVERETT
