  • Lyrics
  • I think it's turning back around
    And I think I like it
    I think it's turning back around
    Though I don't know why it is
    I think it's turning back on me
    I'm down on the upside
    I think it's turning back on me
    Now I'm the good ride

    And nothing's gonna put me out
    It's backing down and under
    I'm down on the upside now
    It's turning back around
    Turning back around

    I think it's coming on the wind
    Just like you said it
    I think it's coming on the wind
    And I'm gonna let it

    I think it's turning back on me
    Everything's easy
    I think it's turning back on me
    Everything's real to me Publisher: Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC, Universal Music Publishing Group, BMG RIGHTS MANAGEMENT US, LLC

  • Ryan from Plano, Txthe song sounds a little too upbeat to be about anything as big as the demise of an entire genre that the band is/was a part of
  • Daartist from Long Beach , CaI cant say if find the lyrics so cryptic marcos. The song seems to be fairly clear and simple at explaining that wierd system of karma that everybody seems to notice but nobody can quit predict or explain. Luck and fortune seem to come and go in waves. We all seem to go through our periods of dry spells and frustration..when we cant win for losing..and almost magically ..fortunes seems to change and lifes problems seem to sovled so easily..and i think the song hints at how your attitude has something to do with the change of fortune...daartist LBC CA
  • Marco from Stanfield, United Statesok after reading the lyrics i say that it means that he knew soundgarden was going under because of the different views of the band members. so in the song he says "i think its turning back on me" hes talking about the domise of all other grunge bands like nirvana and now it was happening to soundgarden. and he says "everythings real to me" hes saying mabe that he feels strongly about his view on the matter and that the others are not listening to him.
