Gil Scott-Heron – I'm New Here lyrics

I did not become someone different
That I did not want to be
But I'm new here
Will you show me around

No matter how far wrong you've gone
You can always turn around
Met a woman in a bar
Told her I was hard to get to know
And near impossible to forget
She said I had an ego on me
The size of Texas

Well I'm new here and I forget
Does that mean big or small

No matter how far wrong you've gone You can always tournaround

And I'm shedding plates like a snake
And it may be crazy but I'm
The closest thing I have
To a voice of reason

Turnaround turnaround turnaround
And you may come full circle
And be new here again
X5

    We are all always new here, though we don't realize it. It's not a natural environment for us as beings, and we need guidance. When we're drinking in bars, we feel even more lost and confused, and we need guidance even more and are likely to ask the wrong people for it. And of course they are drinking too. The singer says he's "shedding plates like a snake," meaning he is breaking out of his skin and growing a new one that needs to be larger. So then of course he is "new here again. " a wonderful understanding!
