yeah
it’s like an endless race
to make the same mistakes every day
what is it that I chase?
just a taste, a tale, maybe it’s my own tail

there must be someone I can blame
it’s mandatory to participate
even if you’ve forgotten what’s at stake
a semi-synthetic kind of rape

you’re so far behind,
you think you’re winning
your ego is underpinning
squandering
forgot your beginnings

racing in circles

a hot caballo in my hacienda
been running so long I’ve forgotten the end (uh)
yeah, so far behind that I think that I’m winning

racing in circles

the look of love
the hoof of God
thrusts from above
reach down and pick me up
if it’s been enough mandatory
time spent in purgatory
a long enough story
for a biography

thrn I’m so sorry
in every way
ready to be judged
my heart, my sou my burning legs
l give up
never grew uo

racing in circles

the only way out is up or down
and I’m down, put down
See you around:
Over and out

too fine, the finish line,
the seconds of your life
it’s time to exercise your right
look up at the dark night
we’re doin it in the light

racing in circles
we’re doin it, doin it
chasing a dragon or a dream
now come and grab your prize

everything’s all right,
this is gonna be your night
come stand out in the lights
we’re doin it, doin it
I’m gonna do it tonight

because seconds are just fractions
I might not be too good at mathematics
tie my wire into this schematic
and feel real current, not just the sting of static

don’t let it all go by
a minute of your time
just spills away like wine
you’ll have only a stain to remind
don’t act like it’s just fine
like you do it all the time
“like, it’s only time”
as if you could hit rewind

racing in circles

the seconds just break down to fractions
you might not know your mathematics
tomorrow you might be asthmatic
can’t get away
or shift to automatic
who’s chasing you?
who’s chasing who?
yeah, you too?
I guess it's true:
second place is just the first loser

racing in circles
