Hopped up belly dancing on the freeway
Swattin’ off imaginary flies
To tell you the truth, man, you don’t look too good
You’ve disappeared behind your empty eyes
Sometimes you feel just like a hero
Other times you feel so fucking low
We’re all given a little time to do something with
That’s all we can ever really know
And what I’ll do is different from what you’ll do
And I see no need to separate
Everything everyone does is of consequence
And helps direct the world that we create
This carousel is spinning and we’re spinning in ourselves
At the same time we’re all being spun
We shot the operator, now he’s starting to smell
Now we’re in control, let’s make it fun
Even if a train wreck’s next to come
We’ll ride this carousel into the sun
I saw a drunken drifter stagger downtown
Cursing gluttony and corporate greed
I saw a teenage girl wearing Abercrombie and Fitch
Toss a Starbucks cup out of her SUV
And you and I were hanging on a hillside
Wondering where on that line we fall
But to try to quantify all the righteousness I
Don’t think that makes any sense at all
Cuz ain’t nobody livin’ free of bias
Nobody here enjoys a God’s eye view
So let’s try to take our time to sort this input out
And enjoy this ride we're stuck on while we do
This carousel is spinning and we’re spinning in ourselves
At the same time we’re all being spun
We shot the operator, now he’s starting to smell
Now we’re in control, let’s make it fun
Even if a train wreck’s next to come
We’ll ride this carousel into the sun
We’ll ride this carousel into the sun
