lyrics

I’m done with the sweet, the sugar on my teeth
The ache of too much too soon
Syrupy come-ons, oh come on       
I’m ready for something new in my spoon
Complexity not simplicity     
A whole new depth a different degree
Yea bitter, yes bitter is my new sweet

Enough of the saccharine ruin 
It’s a different phase of the moon
I’m after substance not just a treat    
Keep the fluff, I’ll take the heat 
Integrity my indemnity
A strong blend of profundity
Yea bitter, yes bitter is my new sweet

Call it remaking the rules
No more suffering fools
Done wasting time on simple minds
Careless words, those unkind

Integrity my indemnity
A strong blend of profundity
Yea bitter, yes bitter is my new sweet 
Complexity not simplicity     
A whole new depth a different degree
Yea bitter, yes bitter is my new sweet
Yea bitter, yes bitter is my new sweet
