"Catherine's Wheel" as written by and Louis Robert Eliot....
Like a shot from the dark
In the silence of night
Down the black boulevard
Come the blinding headlights
If it isn't the hit
It's the thrill of the chase
You've got to admit
It's a hell of a place

[Chorus:]
But when she turns
How she sparkles and burns
And I am bound by her spell
I'm tied to her carousel
Like shooting stars
That scratch away at the dark
I know that my fate is sealed
On Catherine's wheel

So look down the tracks
See how far you've come
There's no turning back
The deal is done
Take hold of the rail
It's a heart-stopping ride
The sparks fall like hail
As she draws me inside

[Chorus]

Oh, the record goes round
The needle goes down
On a forgotten sound

[Chorus x 2]

    General CommentThis song may be viewed in different ways... if you view it on a "lovers" level, I think it's the process of being drawn into love itself... if you look at it as "death", then it's about the process of a peaceful death. Catherine's Wheel are two things... the fireworks or the torture instrument.
