lyrics

I am constantly surrounded, haunted by the doubts and regrets
I am forced to read about it, since no one keeps their thoughts in their own heads
That you've got this pretty new thing
But it won't stay new for long
You've got this pretty new thing
What happens when it's gone?

You might catch me out on weekends, pass me on my way out of Toad
You might look at me with pity, ask what I got coming down the road
Say you've got this pretty new thing
But it won't stay new for long
You've got this pretty new thing
What happens when it's gone?

Well, it broke my heart to give up, especially when there's work left to do
But when does the dreamer simply become the fool?
We built an empire that was set to expire before anyone knew
And with ruins all around us, there's only one thing left to lose

And you've got this pretty new thing
But it won't stay new for long
You've got this pretty new thing
What happens when it's gone?

You've got this pretty new thing
What happens when it's gone?
