"My Carousel" as written by and James Ryan Black Arnold David Lanni....
Spotlights are roaming
The show will begin
But don't give my circus away

I hope it ends before you know me
I've lost it completely
My faith is lost again I'd say
I'm tired of this place and I want to go

Riding my carousel
They can never tell
Riding my carousel
They can never tell

I'm spinning and turning
Always revolving

You should have seen it
Where were you?
I needed a stage
To walk all over you

That's better
I'm throwing my three ring away
And I can hear you say I'm tired of this place
I'm tired of this place and then I think of

Riding my carousel
They can never tell
Riding my carousel
They can never tell

Spinning, turning always revolving

Close all of the doors
Lock me away
I'm happy in here so let me stay

I'm so tired of this place
I'm tired of this place and then I think of
Riding my carousel
They can never tell
Riding my carousel
They can never tell

Spinning, turning
Always revolving

Spinning, turning
Always revolving

    General CommentThis song is weird definately. I think its just a place where the singer goes to get away from everything, he "rides his carousel" and gets out of everything for that time. Hes free on his carousel.

    As for the worst Finger Eleven song, I dont think its that, its just a real weird song, everything about it is weird.

    General Commenton the Site Scott Anderson said its about staying ahead of the world. basically lying to yourself, like finding a happy place so nothing else matters. at first I thought it was about drugs or something like that (riding my carousel, meaning doing drugs and "they can never tell" meaning no one knows but him) but hey, this note came from the lead singer himself, and since he wrote the bloody song I guess we should belive him eh?
