Merry Go Round Routine

Lyrics

It’s hard to remember those days
Looking back now is a blur
Those faces all blend together

And I know my thoughts have changed
I started looking at the sky
Those stars that shine so brightly have opened up my eyes

Even if my old ghosts start to haunt
I can become anyone I want
This merry-go-round routine just isn’t me

Back then when I wasn’t afraid and
I wasn’t in so much pain
There was no fear of putting myself back together

But now I can’t look anymore
You see, my mirror is cracked
Back then I had love to spare, now it’s the thing I lack

It’s been weighing down like an anchor
All the shame and terror, building up like a wall
All the pain that I’ve dealt
And the love that I’ve felt I’m so much better than it all

Behind The Music

“[This is about] going through life and going through the motions of life...That’s what I think the merry go round kind of represents...but I don’t remember us having a definite meaning of the song. I think that different people interpret it different ways.”
