"New Again (That Is Quite Enough)" as written by and Adam Burbank Lazzara Matthew Fazzi....
[???]
(all the better to)
All the better to hold you down
Slap my wrist with the sweet consequence
What are we, what are we to do
What are we to do with you
What are we, what are we to do
What are we to do with you

I am, I'm ready to be new again
I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
(Quite enough)
I am, I'm ready to be new again
I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
(Quite enough)

Monster with sharp teeth you have
(all the better to)
All the better to call you out

[???]

You don't know where you've been
Well you don't where I've been
What are we to do
What are we to, to do with you

I am, I'm ready to be new again
I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
(Quite enough)
I am, I'm ready to be new again
I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
(Quite enough)

What are we to do with
What are we to, to do with you
What are we to do with
What are we to, to do with you

Don't know where I've been

I am, I'm ready to be new again
I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
(Quite enough)
I am, I'm ready to be new again
I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
(Quite enough)

You don't know where I've been [x7]
(I am I'm ready to be new again)
(What are we to do with you)
(I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough)
(You don't know where I've been)

    General CommentThis song is actually about me...

    With my parents in the process of separating, I felt very neglected and became depressed. However my friends weren't too fond of the "new" me and they all deserted me. Now after I realize the way I acted was what separated me from my good friends, I'm ready to change for a second time(hence being new again) and prove to them that I can be the same happy and carefree person who they once enjoyed hanging out with.

    General Commentthis might be referring in some manner to the story of Little Red Riding Hood.

    General CommentThe updated lyrics:



    My dear what long arms you have
    All the better to hold you down
    Slap my wrist with that sweet consequence
    What are we, what are we to do
    What are we to do with you
    What are we, what are we to do
    What are we to do with you

    I am, I'm ready to be new again
    I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
    (Quite enough)
    I am, I'm ready to be new again
    I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
    (Quite enough)

    My dear what with deep roots you have
    All the better to hold you down
    We lived inside our branches
    your families nest's ask "Where have you been?"
    No you don't know were I've been
    What are we, what are we to do
    What are we to do with you

    I am, I'm ready to be new again
    I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
    (Quite enough)
    I am, I'm ready to be new again
    I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
    (Quite enough)

    don't know were I've been...
    don't know were I've been...
    Might do with long arms you have
    All the better to hold you down

    I am, I'm ready to be new again
    I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
    (Quite enough)
    I am, I'm ready to be new again
    I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
    (Quite enough)

    You don't know were I've been...
    You don't know were I've been...
    You don't know were I've been...
    You don't know, you don't know were I've been...

    I am, I'm ready to be new again
    I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
    (Quite enough)
    I am, I'm ready to be new again
    I'm ready to hear you say who I am is quite enough
    (Quite enough)

    My dear what deep roots you have
    All the better to hold you down
    We lived inside our branches
    your families nest's ask "Boy, where have you been?"
    No you don't know were I've been
    What are we, what are we to do
    What are we to do with you

    Song Meaningjumping straight into this song
    i cant wait for this album

    i think it's about adam and chauntelle
    this is blatantly gonna be his breakup record
    and it's set written during an arguement between the two and adam says he's ready to be 'new again'
    by that he means a divorce obviously

    and the entire tree metaphor is about her family tree and how her parents don't really know adam very well

    General Commentcorrection during the bridge to deathstare's lyrics...i think it says "well, my dear, what long arms you have," not "might do with long arms you have."

    i love this song.

    My InterpretationSong to me sounds like it's a drug that's taking over, and he/she is tired of what they are dependent on. "Who I am is quite enough" and wants to be new again..DUHHH! and they ditch there family "Boy, where have you been?"Well you don't know where I've been. and they dont no about it
