"Circles" as written by Monty C Byrom, Paul Sandler N Kalman and Eric ...
I see you walk around pushing people out of shame
I see you walk around you're hung over
I see you walk around missing every pace you take
I see you walk around it's not over
I see you walk around wishing you were someone else
I see you walk around searching for attention

Who's that they are sinking in me
It's burning all over and over again
Who's that they are sinking in me
I'm spinning around in these circles again

I see you walk around hugging people with no name
I see you walk around with weightless shoulders
I see you walk around looking for a missing face
I see you walk around fighting to impress them

You think you don't make one difference
It's all in how you perceive what you live in
I can't help but watch your existence
And I get sick when I see you can't make it out

You see me walk around
You see me walk around

    General Commentexcuse me but i believe it goes a little somthing like this...

    I’ve thrown away again the pills that make me
    I’ve thrown away again the chance to want to change
    I’ve thrown away again I’m standing all alone
    I’ve thrown away again

    Eyes wired shut running through my brain
    Pulling back the skin it happens we’re getting older
    Eyes wired shut running through my brain
    It’s all the same but in the end it keeps me coming

    I’ve blown away again the fear of failing
    I’ve blown away again the lies that make me sane
    I’ve blown away the chance to make it right
    I want to be I want to see I want to make it back to me

    ‘Cause I just waste away the chance the time to face the change
    To make myself to think that things are better

    thankyou edgewaterband.com

    General CommentIts about a girl who's in the background. She seeks popularity, she seeks acceptance. She's made it in the crowd, but she's never been the center of attention. But for whatever reason, she views herself as a misfit, she has a very low self esteem. She is never the center of the spotlight, instead, she's always in the back waiting for someone to notice her. She sees others in her same position and befriends them, hoping to gain a status that would impress the populars. But sadly, nothing she ever does is good enough, in her own eyes... its implied that she might even hate her own life. And that's where the singer falls in, who sees this girl from afar. He sees her do all of this, he sees her constantly hate everything she ever does... and he feels as though he's the only one who understands her. He hates to see her in such a position. So much so, that he can't get her out of his head. -- That's my take on it. I've been in a similar position.

    General CommentIn my opinion this song could be about him seeing himself almost as if from one personality where the side that is always depressed is slowly having influence over the happy side and slowly turning him into one person but as sick as it makes him that he ends up this way it will happen anyway and always will hence the idea of going in circles each time he thinks he will be happy the depressed side will come back around and burn into him that it will not last.
