New years ago
We drank and danced and left our sour hearts behind
We sweetened for a kiss
The kiss of a new year to come
But those days are gone
We never got resolution it never comes
All the best wishes were blown
So blow out your candles the year won
So long, to longing for the resurrection of an unbridled wantonness

Break in the new year
Break in the new year
Break in the new year
Break in the new year

Whipped us in shape
We must stay afraid our new god is discipline
New, but hardly improved, it's just new cliches
"They might nail your hands, but your neck has been saved"
So break in the new year with a vintage wine
Here's to aging, when some things just get bitter with age
And other are made to be broken
Broken in

We're disciples of discipline
Sweetened for the kiss

    Staying alive or Proposals perhaps?

    They'd probably lose their brilliance if they wrote truly upbeat songs.

    anything from the happy hollow album really. great concept album but pales in comparison to anything else they've done. Pop is good but these guys rock to hard to change their style.

    and as to not have a useless post, I'm loving the line

    New, but hardly improved, it's just new clichés "They might nail your hands, but your neck has been saved"

    funny how he continuously throws out all this religious imagery which he seems to hate so much. forced upon him by his family as I child I would assume...
