"Circuital" as written by and James Edward Olliges Jr....
Spinning out, gracefully
Going nowhere, quickly
I am older, day to day
Still going back to my childhood way

Circuital
Round and round patiently
Getting lost by the guide
And I'm all worked up over nothing

Circuits
All in and out
Connect my body
Deep into the ground

Circuits
Connect the Earth to the Moon
And link our heavenly bodies
Not a moment too soon

Well you can fling open the windows
Or you can board 'em up
Saints to a crown
Or Christ’s humble cup

You think you'll find yourself out there
Out in the lion’s den
In somebody's battle
Over belief systems

Or disappear into the vacuum
Total neutrality
Well you can't lose nothing
But nothing can be gained

Well anyway you cut it
We're just spinning around
Out on the circuits
Over the hollow grounds

Out on the circuits
Over the hollow grounds
Heading right back in the same place
That we started out
Right back in the same place
Right back in the same place
That we starting out

    Lyric CorrectionI think it's "hallowed ground," not "hollow grounds," which sounds like a bad name for a coffee shop.

    General CommentFor me it's all about the sense people want usually give to their life. Actually we are spinning out, going nowhere, working up to nothing that can really matter or change the circuit of our leaving, because at the end of the day we are simply heading back to where we was born, our initial place. What is that place? Well everyone has his her anwer as everyone knows that place better than everyonelse. The circuit closes on itself, as always.

    Lyric CorrectionI think this is more accurate:

    Spinning out, gracefully
    Going nowhere, quickly
    I am older, day by day
    Still going back to my childhood way

    Circuital
    Round and round patiently
    Getting lost by the guide
    And I'm all worked up over nothing

    Circuits
    All in and out
    Connect my body
    Deep into the ground

    Circuits
    Connect the Earth to the moon
    And link our heavenly bodies
    Not a moment too soon

    Well you can fling open the windows
    Or you can board them up
    Saints to a crown
    Or Christ’s humble cup

    You think you'll find yourself out there
    Out in the lion’s den
    In somebody's battle
    Over belief systems

    Or disappear into the vacuum
    Total neutrality
    Well you can't lose nothing
    But nothing can be gained

    Well anyway you cut it
    We're just spinning around
    Out on the circuits
    Over the hollow grounds
    Out on the circuits
    Over the hollow grounds
    Heading right back in the same place
    That we started out
    Right back in the same place
    Right back in the same place
    That we starting out

    Lyric CorrectionI think joeleft is spot on.
    Except for one line.

    I'm hearing

    "Satan's jeweled crown
    Or Christ's humble cup"

    instead of saints to a crown

    General Commentjim james never fails to impress. been dying for a new my morning jacket for far too long.

    i love how he sometimes rushes a line in here. like in the second sentence. seems out of place but a tad funny.

    My InterpretationDoes anyone have a good interpretation of this song? It definitely has correlation to Victory Dance, due to the fact that Yames gave an interview saying that it was about laser eye surgery. I think Victory Dance is the before, and Circuital is the after. He once said that every day is a psychedelic opportunity that you can learn from. Perhaps this laser eye surgery is one of these opportunities. He learned how much he was fussing over nothing, and how inevitable life is. There is no stopping the cycle. This is the big picture, and i think the message is made clear that he is telling others to look at the cycle, or the big picture, rather then fuss over the little things.
