Novelty

This song is by Joy Division and appears on the compilation album Heart and Soul (1997).

When people listen to you don't you know it means a lot
'Cause you've got to work so hard for everything you've got
Can't rest on your laurels now
Not when you got none
You'll find yourself in a gutter
Right back where you came from

Someone told me being in the know is the main thing
We all need the security that belonging brings
Can't stand on your own, in these times, before the odds
You'll just fall behind like all the other sods

You slap our backs and pretend you knew
About all the things that we were gonna do
What ya gonna do, what ya gonna do when it's over?

You're all on your own now
Don't you think that it's a shame?
But you're the only one responsible
To take the blame

So what ya gonna do when the novelty has gone?
Yeah, what ya gonna do when the novelty has gone?

You slap our backs and pretend you knew
About all the things that we were gonna do
What ya gonna do, what ya gonna do when it's over?
