No New Sounds

I was waiting for a brand new sound
A new soul rebel
Now there is no underground
No new revision

Driving through Acton
I heard a new sensation
Did it hit the way Lou Reed
Hit me at fourteen?

A shiver and a rhythm inside
And all the words are broken
The possibilities endless
And simplicity is key

So don't you throw it all away
Don't you celebrate too soon
Waiting for a brand new sound
A new feeling to feel

It's like you don't need to fix what's not broken
Or a new way to market beer
You just need a simple melody
And words cut from your very soul

The new karaoke kids
They lack self-expression
They don't satisfy themselves
And they fail their generation

And I only want to sing it in tune
So someone will listen
The idea that I might get through
Influence a decision

So don't you throw it all away
Don't you celebrate too soon
Waiting for a brand new sound
A new feeling to feel
