I've never been here before 
Didn't know where to go 
Never met you before 

I've never been to your home 
That smells not unknown 
Foot steps made of stone 
Walking feels familiar 

You can do all the things that you like to do 
All around underground pick a part that's new 
You can do all the things that you like to do 
All around upside down pick a part that's new 

People drinking on their own 
Push buttons on the phone 
Was I here once before?

Is that my voice on the phone 
That last drink on my own 
Did I ever leave at all 
Confusion's familiar 

[Chorus: x3]

So what's new to you?
What's new to you?
What's new to you?
