"Motion Sickness" as written by and Joseph/taylor Goddard....
Remember when people thought the world was round, the world was round?
Remember when people thought the world was round, the world was round?
Everything spins, everything spins on my head
Everything spins, everything spins, everything spins on my head
Everything spins, everything spins, everything spins on my head
On my compact disc
Everything spins, everything spins from my head 'til my motion sickness

Ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh
Ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh
Ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh
Ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh

Remember when we both first felt the world is sound, the world is sound?
Remember when we both first heard the wall of sound, the wall of sound?
Everything locks, everything locks to my grave
Everything locks, everything locks , everything locks to my grave
Everything locks, everything locks, everything locks to my grave and my broken limbs
Everything locks, everything locks to my grave and the life I live

Ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh
Ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh
Ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh
Ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh
Ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh

I am only turning out to you (ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh)
I am only felt and seen by you (ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh)
A world I’m in to take within your hands (ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh)
A world we both take through no contact lens (ah oh ooh, ooh, ooh)

    Song MeaningPitchfork: And on "Motion Sickness", you literally sing about listening to music: "Everything spins on my hip, on my compact disc."

    AT: With that one, [Gang Gang Dance's] Brian DeGraw wrote on his blog, "Remember when people thought the world was round," and I made my lyrics follow on from that line of thought. I was thinking about things that mean something to me that probably mean nothing to anyone else in this day and age. For instance, I like listening to music on a Discman, where the CD spins, and the fact that it's weird to listen to something on a Discman when most people have an iPod, even though those have an internal hard drive that's spinning, too.

    General CommentI'm hearing 'everything spins from my hip' and 'broken lid'... must have had a Discman. Meh. MiniDiscs were better... didn't skip.
