"New Words of Wisdom" as written by and Brendan Benson....
You pretend to be there for me
But in the end you'll just ignore me
And I can't say what hurts me more
The game you played or the final score

But who am I to say these things
To know how or why
Or what life brings
And I made my bed
So I think I'll lie down
Rest my weary head
It won't be long now

And I ain't got the time
And I don't have the patience
For you or your kind
And all your relations no
New words of wisdom
From an old friend of mine

So you go your way and I'll go mine
And it pains me to say that it wasn't our time
I'll see you again on down that road
And I'll call you friend but we both know
That a thousand years couldn't heal these wounds
And all our tears could fill these rooms

And I ain't got the time
And I don't have the patience
For you or your kind
And all your relations no
New words of wisdom
From an old friend of mine

And I ain't got the time
And I don't have the patience
For you or your kind
And all your relations no
New words of wisdom
From an old friend of mine
