You've got a perfect girl
And it's a perfect world
You build a fortress around you
Can see no reason not to continue

The things that you always dreamed about
You know that in time they'll be running out
It's all turning around, and around, and around

Everything you wanted
Will be falling down
Like castles in the sand
Everything you needed
In the world you're holding
Holding in your hand

And if this comfortable life
Is your only passage through time
Just make sure you can break through
The walls that you are building around you

The things that you always dreamed about
You know that in time they'll be running out
It's all turning around, and around, and around

Everything you wanted
Will be falling down
Like castles in the sand
Everything you needed
In the world you're holding
Holding in your hand

You want to be a part of the world?
You've got to hand something over
Want to be a part of the world

The things that you always dreamed about
You know that in time they'll be running out
It's all turning around, and around, and around

Everything you wanted
Will be falling down
Like castles in the sand
Everything you needed
In the world you're holding
Holding in your hand

    General Commentdisgrace, there are no comments on this. great song and one of my Pacifier/Shihad favourites.

    to me this song is saying that like never turns out the way you want. shit always happens but dont let it get you down as in the end your the master of your own destiny.

    General CommentThis is a brilliant website I just discovered it.

    To me this song refers to how as a society we pursue things that are supposed to make us happy - "You got a perfect girl, And it's a perfect world" - but they only serve to drag us down ultimately. We go for things that are bad for us, we surround ourselves with it, because they make us feel good, "You build a fortress around you, Can't see no reason not to continue." But it can't last forever and it'll come back on us. "The things that you always dreamed about
    You know that in time they'll be running out
    It's all turning around, and around, and around."

    So, everything we WANT is all that we strive for and think we must have, but all we really need is all we already have.

    Shihad fucking rock :D
