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
