"No New Tale to Tell" as written by Kevin Haskins, Daniel Gaston Ash and David Jay....
You cannot go against nature
Because when you do
Go against nature
It's part of nature too

Our little lives get complicated
It's a simple thing
Simple as a flower
And that's a complicated thing

No new tale to tell
No new tale to tell
No new tale to tell

AHHHH

My world is your world
People like to hear their names
I'm no exception
Please call my name
Call my name

No new tale to tell
No new tale to tell
No new tale to tell

AHHHH

When you're down
It's a long way up
When you're up
It's a long way down

It's all the same thing
No new tale to tell

No new tale to tell

    General CommentYou mean that awesome solo in this song? I think it's flute- whatever it is, I love it.

    I also love this lyric:
    People like to hear their names
    I'm no exception
    Please call my name

    General CommentA very Zen song. Probably one of the most Zen songs I've ever heard.

    Song MeaningI think it's a litany of the obvious, with pretty shallow wisdom and that ultimately it's some kind of joke: the songwriter is tired of trying to write songs with deep meaning or songs that tell a story and he ends up writing what is essentially a song about nothing. A few self-evident facts, and the title says it all: [this song has] no new tale to tell.
    I'm wondering if they are poking fun at someone (a vain lyricist who thinks his songs are very clever and meaningful) in particular.
