Circles

Album: Enter to Exit (2015)
  • "Circles" is the first single from Enter to Exit, the second album from the Brooklyn funk-rock band The Highway. Lead singer/bassist Daniel Tortoledo told us the story behind this song: "'Circles' is a story of man who steps into a dream reminiscent of the past and depicting his present life in a city where the kings no longer hold their thrones and those things we once considered sacred are now nothing but childish jokes. His innocence is gone and so is his thought about the so-called 'free love.' What remains is the outcome of the endless roads he paved for years for us to witness the sense of brotherhood, he hopes for mother earth to develop in the years to come.
  • Here are the lyrics, provided courtesy of the band:

    Going round in circles I got no point of view
    Got no real direction when I put my trust in you
    The king became the joker of an up an coming town
    the prostitute's a lover of a priest who walks around

    All the pages have been read, all the words were clearly said
    there's nothing left to be discussed, about a victory or a loss
    The wind is cold and so am I when the gun is on my side

    Take all but don't take what belongs to me
    Hang me but leave with some air to breath
    We are fooled into thinking love's for free
    I know that everyone must reach the end

    The wind has blown a boy has grown and
    now with time the land has shrunk
    all my friends have paid their fare
    with the moments we have shared

    Images of haunted lands are crossing through my fearless mind

    Take all but don't take what belongs to me
    Hang me but leave with some air to breath
    We are fooled into thinking love's for free
    I know that everyone must reach the end
