Current Version (version 4, 14 Aug 2010, 15:01)

I know it says ya shouldn't write lyrics, but I figure since I wrote them, and the copyright's mine, and I'm making the decision to share 'intellectual property' it's within the spirit of the rules.. should be all good. Continuing the horse theme, if you couldn't tell, but....the words can mean whatever you want, cause even as the writer, it means more to me than just the original inspiration or singular interpretation at a given point in time. This was the 2nd song, I think, that I wrote after the departure of J. Skream...right after Deserted. I've got bass and other stuff written and recorded for this to thicken the sound up, but am wary of putting too much out till the album's done....just a taste, for those whose imaginations can kind of fill in the blanks. Anyway, lyrics: Racing In Circles: yeah it's like an endless race to make the same mistakes every day what is it that I chase? just a taste, a tale, maybe it's my own tail there must be someone I can blame it's mandatory to participate even if you've forgotten what's at stake a semi-synthetic kind of fake (rape?) you're so far behind, you think you're winning your ego is underpinning the squandering forgot the beginning racing in circles a hot caballo in my hacienda been running so long I've forgotten the end (uh) yeah, so far behind that I think that I'm winning racing in circles the look of love the hoof of God thrusts from above reach down and pick me up if it's been enough purgatory a long enough story and I'm so sorry in every way ready to be judged my legs, my heart, my soul give up racing in circles the only way out is up or down and I'm down, put down I'm out (end...optional lyrix follow, or could save for another song) too fine, the finish line, the seconds of your life it's time to exercise your right look up at the dark night we're doin it in the light racing in circles we're doin it, doin it chasing a dragon or a dream now come and grab your prize everything's all right, this is gonna be your night come stand out in the lights we're doin it, doin it I'm gonna do it tonight because seconds are just fractions I might not be too good at mathematics tie my wire into this schematic and feel a real current, not just static don't let it all go by a minute of your time just spills away like wine you'll have only a stain to remind don't act like it's just fine like you do it all the time "like, it's only time" racing in circles the seconds just break down to fractions you might not know your mathematics tomorrow you might be asthmatic can't get away or shift to automatic who's chasing you? who's chasing who? yeah, you too? yeah, second place is just the first loser racing in circles
