Lyrics:

Born without direction,
Raised to crave celebritiy,
Forced to fol­low fashion,
Why can't I feel empathy?
Well watch me bleed,
Aware that I'm
Just raw meat,
Well gimme just
One more drink
I need it to tol­er­ate this tired scene.

I don' want it
I don't need it
But I love it
This is the new black

I don' want it
I don't need it
But I love it
This is the new crack

Well have you had enough?
Or have you become?
The char­ac­ter that you portray?
You know they'll nev­er want
You know they'll nev­er love reality

Well have you had enough?
Or have you become?
The char­ac­ter that you portray?
You know they'll nev­er want
You know they'll nev­er love reality

I'm bored give me attention,
Lost in life's complexities
Alone with my possessions
I just want some intimacy
Watch me bleed,
Aware that I'm
Just raw meat,
Well gimme just
One more drink
I need it to tol­er­ate your industry.

I don't want it
I don't need it
But I love it
This is the new black.
I don't want it
I don't need it
But I love it
(This is the new crack.)

Well have you had enough
Or have you become?
The char­ac­ter that you portray?
You know they'll nev­er want
You know they'll nev­er love reality

Well have you had enough
Or have you become?
The char­ac­ter that you portray?
You know they'll nev­er want
You know they'll nev­er love reality

I am a product
I am a fake
I am a trend
Can you relate?
I am a product
I am a fake
I have no value
Can you relate?

Well have you had enough?
Or have you become?
The char­ac­ter that you portray?
You know they'll nev­er want
You know they'll nev­er love reality

Well have you had enough
Or have you become?
The char­ac­ter that you portray?
You know they'll nev­er want
You know they'll nev­er love reality

I don' want it
I don't need it
But I love it
This is the new black
I don' want it
I don't need it
But I love it
This is the new crack
