"Carousel" as written by Ronald Fair, Stefanie J. Ridel and Nicolas Jack Scapa....
Verified correct by Andy Smith, a past member of this band.
You and I are gonna get it right
Don't let me go
It takes two to make a leader but
One has to follow
Help me, help me understand
What we've become
We fell apart and then proceeded to
Both play the victim

On and on and on we go
Just like a carousel that's lost control
We don't know why, we don't know why
We go, we go, we go in circles

I want you more than anything
Just as you're leaving
For every wound that's an apology
That's lost its meaning
You and I, I think we're better off
Without each other
The last ride, the unavoidable
Keeps getting farther

On and on and on we go
Just like a carousel that's lost control
We don't know why, we don't know why
We go, we go, we go in circles
On and on and on we spin
To find an end where we begin
We don't know why, we don't know why
We go, we go, we go in circles

    you and i
    are gonna get it right
    don't let me go
    it takes two
    to make a leader but
    one has to follow
    -
    help me
    help me understand
    what we've become
    we fell apart
    and then proceeded to
    both play the victim

    CHORUS
    on and on and on we go just like a carousel that's lost control
    we don't know why, we don't know why we go, we go, we go in circles

    I want you
    more than anything
    just as you're leaving
    for every wound
    there's an apology
    that's lost it's meaning

    you and I
    i think we're better off
    without each other
    the last ride
    the unavoidable
    keeps getting farther

    General CommentI heard this song on the show on MTV "The City" I love this song it sounds kool. I guess what he's saying is that everythings going crazy but they've just got to stick together.

    General CommentOne person is putting effort into relationship, and the other is not doing their part. The person putting in the effort desperately wants the other person to be captured and interested in the relationship, but they aren't communicating enough to. Things don't feel the way they used to between the boy and girl, and neither of them know why. The person doesn't want it to end, but him/her fears for the relationship. At any point the other person could let it go. These trials and tribulations are what the carousel symbolizes. Around and around they go, and the problem hasn't gotten solved. The person is willing to change in order to solve the issue, but the other person just doesn't seem to be making any effort. Every issue left unsolved just propels them further into miscommunication.

    Song Meaningthey are running from all the dangers of the End. like the end of their relationship. he wants to stay with her because he loves her, but their relationship is 'like a carousel thats lost control' and in the end he realizes he's not sure why he's stayed in it. so he lets go of her and lets her go into the light of the end
