Album: Circuital (2011)

  • Spinning out, gracefully
    Going nowhere, quickly
    I am older, day by day
    Still going back to my childhood way

    Round and round patiently
    Getting lost by the guide
    And I'm all worked up over nothing

    All running out
    Connect my body
    Deep into the ground

    Connect the Earth to the Moon
    And link our heavenly bodies
    Not a moment too soon

    Well you can fling open the windows
    Or you can board 'em up
    Satan's jeweled crown
    Or Christ's humble cup

    You think you'll find yourself out there
    Out in the lion's den
    In bloddy battle
    Over belief systems

    Or disappear into the vacuum
    Total neutrality
    Well you can't lose nothing
    But nothing can be gained

    Well anyway you cut it
    We're just spinning around
    Out on the circuits
    Over the hollowed ground

    Out on the circuits
    Over the hollowed ground
    Endin up in the same place, that we started out
    Right back in the same place, that we starting out
    Right back in the same place, that we starting out Writer/s: Jim Edward Olliges Jr.
