New Politics Harlem

I spend my money on the regular miracles

Just like you, like me, like everybody else.

Up on the sun, lookin’ sad and beautiful

Just like you, like me, like everybody else.

(When it gets loud, I turn it up)

Shake it like a bad girl up in Harlem

(When it’s too hot, I light it up)

Ooh, light it up, yeah, smoke em if you got ’em

Here come the jets, hide my money in your tube socks

Run like me, like hell, like everybody else

Hair metal on a Japanese boom box

Kicks like you, like me, like everybody else

(When it gets loud, I turn it up)

Shake it like a bad girl up in Harlem

(When it’s too hot, I light it up)

Light it up, yeah, smoke em if you got ’em

(When it’s too soft, I shake it up)

Sh-Sh-Sh-Shake it like a bad girl up in Harlem

(You’re so sweet, but I like it rough)

Ooh, light it up, yeah, smoke em if you got ’em

Makin’ a movie on the couch with a flip phone

Just like you, like I, like fingers in your mouth.

Up on the sun, playing drums with a bleached bone

Just like you, like me, like everybody else.

(When it gets loud, I turn it up)

Shake it like a bad girl up in Harlem

(When it’s too hot, I light it up)

Light it up, yeah, smoke ’em if you got ’em

(When it’s too soft, I shake it up)

Like I look at a bad girl up in Harlem

(You’re so sweet, but I like it rough)

Ooh, light it up, yeah, smoke ’em if you got ’em

New Politics Fall Into These Arms

My cell phone screen is cracked

Vodka bottles in my bath

I kiss better when I’m drunk

Sex is best when you’re not in love

Though we’ve only met

I want to wake up in your bed

Scars are beautiful to me

A heart that beats is a heart that bleeds

On with the show the world is our set

I’ll play Montague, you’ll be Capulet

There’s no tragedy tonight

We are alive

Fall into these arms

And spend the night na na na na

With a stranger like me

Fall into these arms

And spend the night na na na na

With a stranger like me

Let’s steal a police car

Like the rock stars we are

We can drive around

With the head lights off when the sun goes down

No one needs to know

How far that we go

We’ll share a cigarette

And we’ll blow smoke rings ’til we have a halo

On with the show we so persevere

I’ll be your Lancelot, Guinevere

There’s no turning back tonight

We feel alive

Fall into these arms

And spend the night na na na na

With a stranger like me

Fall into these arms

And spend the night na na na na

With a stranger like me

My cell phone screen is cracked

Vodka bottles in my bath

And though we’ve only met

I wanna wake up in you bed

Fall into these arms

And spend the night na na na na

With a stranger

Fall into these arms

And spend the night na na na na

With a stranger like me

New Politics Aristocrat

We set the jets on fire

We wake up burning up with emerald eyes

Miss Penthouse dynamite is cyanide

This service elevator is how I ride

Cause you’re a rich bitch and you’re super bad

With your black lips and your taxi cabs

I’m a quick fix for the shit you lack

Dirty porcelain, sick aristocrat

If you really want, I’d give it all to you

But I was born to lose

If you really want to go out like that…

Aristocrat, dirty little money trap

You and me are junk and money clips

With trophies on our tongue and pixie sticks

And caviar that thrills the simple kids

The queen who hit and run the Bowery king

Nothing compares to you

You got it

Nothing I won’t do for you

Come get it

Come take my hand, run away

Don’t be afraid, I won’t lose

New Politics Girl Crush

I still can’t get over the sex we had

Let me tell about my girl, god help me

She had a finger wave, and disco veins, and spaceship lips

I said “Houston I’ve landed, lets go steady”

On Saturday she seemed different

She turned and kissed another girl…

And she’s in love with her

Oh I know, I know tonight that she ain’t mine

She’s got a girl crush

She thinks I’m famous

I guess I’m close enough to be dangerous

I still can’t remember where we met that night

But there were Coney Island freaks surfing cocaine

And when the wave crashed down and a full black moon out

I said “You’re the only cat on my runway”

She had me hook, line and sinker

Maybe she thinks I’m just a girl…

But I’m in love with her

She’s so, so bad it hurts

I lay my head and cry

All because I know tonight that she ain’t mine

Let me see your gold tooth

(I don’t even know you)

Hot butter in your perfume

(I’m about to show you)

Psycho candy voodoo

(Take it to the bathroom)

Girl, I think I’m in love with both of them

I can play innocent

They’re all in love with her

She’s so, so bad it hurts

I hang my head and cry

All because I know tonight she ain’t mine

New Politics Nuclear War

Just look around I feel blessed

This is Earth as we know best

Heavenly I feel praised

Hold this to my dying day

I’ve seen killers on the streets

Bullets fired to the beat

I’ve seen businessmen deceive

For the power, for the money and the greed

All this pain surrounding us

All this joy inside of us

I feel hate I feel love

We’ve been blessed by God above

Hold me down don’t let me breathe

Take it all in front of me

Rape it all and watch it bleed

Come on come on

Oh-oh here comes the enemy

Oh-oh I’m a walking psycho

Oh-oh bring out your armies

Oh-oh let’s start a fucking nuclear war

Ashes to ashes

One day we’ll all fall to dust

There’ll be rain in the skies

To wash away the rust

There’s a war in front of me

We’re all crying out for peace

A depression at it’s peak

And they’re the ones who lead?

Am I the enemy, am I the enemy

Am I the enemy, am I the enemy?

Hold me down don’t let me breathe

Take it all in front of me

Rape it all and watch it bleed

Come on come on

Oh-oh here comes the enemy

Oh-oh I’m a walking psycho

Oh-oh bring out your armies

Oh-oh let’s start a fucking nuclear war

We’re burning away, burning away

Losing our souls in outer space

Looking down 3000 miles away

It’s getting too dark to see and I’m starting to freeze

I’m laughing at the world that I used to see

I used to see

Aaahhhhhhhh

Oh-oh here comes the enemy

Oh-oh I’m a walking psycho

Oh-oh bring out your armies

Oh-oh so I can start a nuclear war

Oh-oh here comes the enemy

Oh-oh let’s end this with a nuclear war

Oh-oh

Bring out your armies

Let’s end this with a nuclear war

Let’s end with fucking nuclear war

Boom

You got to try it all before you know who you want

The self-assured or the heavyhearted

She took my hand and said I hope that we will meet again

Oh Madeleine there’s no one quite like you

Will we be friends? Yeah

Before the bar is closing down

Before you’re leaving town for good

Let me sing you one last song

La la la la, la la la

New Politics Stardust

You were the moon, I was the wave

Pulled me out, pushed me away

It’s how we danced

Isn’t it amazing?

Hold me close, let me go

I said that faith is all I know

And yes I lied

Because the whiskey made me

I was just enough but you need everything

It’s all a blur we’re clearly fading baby

Why couldn’t I make you want to leave the world behind?

Our ship is stuck in a bottle

Let’s break the glass tonight

I’ll be your after glow, your sweetness and your light

I’ll be the chemical that helps you sleep at night

We’re stardust, you and I

What’s poison now, was perfect then

Sirens screaming out again

Baby it ain’t right

But isn’t it amazing?

A bleeding heart blooming in the shade

A midnight watch, I’m up for days

I need a sign but girl the skies so hazy

Now I’m just enough but you need everything

It’s all a blur we’re clearly fading baby

You can call

You can fall on me

We’re stardust, you and I

Like stardust tonight…

You’re stuck on my mind

New Politics West End Kids

Walking slow down the freeway

Sarah says that it’s not much further

Kiss the sunlight on her face

Let’s say goodbye to this old and broken

Town where we fell in love

Dead end streets became a drug

Held our voices like a prison cell

But now we shout it from the rooftops

Oh, we are the kids that you never loved

We are the ones that will never grow up

We’re just some kids from the west end

Woah, woah, woah

We are the voices you never heard

We are the fire you never let burn

We’re just some kids from the west end

Woah, woah, woah

Say goodbye to your old friends

Kicking down all the rusty fences

Don’t need much where we’re going

Just a little bit of love to get us by

Goodbye, we’re on our way

You and I, we got it made

Throw your gold into a wishing well

And we’ll be shouting from the rooftops

Oh, we are the kids that you never loved

We are the ones that will never grow up

We’re just some kids from the west end

Woah, woah, woah
