So you've been knocked and you've been thrown
And you've run all the way back home
Saying you were searching for a reason
And you cried years so much before
You won't cry much anymore
Roll with the punches
Gonna leave it all behind
These highway signs are
A sign of the time

If you wanna spin
Get yourself back in the game again
Throw down your money
Maybe you could win
But this world won't stop
So never stop, just spin

I've been there once or twice before
Destiny knocking at my door
But destiny only seemed to erase
The happiness once where the ruins replaced

And you said this world treated you cruel
Played with your head, then played you the fool
Leave it all behind, don't let it get you down
If anything, you can be a clown

If you wanna spin
Get yourself back in the game again
Throw down your money
Maybe you could win
But this world won't stop
So never stop, just spin

And this place is cold
And you're feeling older now
And your body hangs
And you fear you won't get out
Suck it up, breathe it deep
Wake up from this creeping sleep
Turn around and around and around and around
Yeah, just spin

If you wanna spin
Get yourself back in the game again
Throw down your money
Maybe you could win
But this world won't stop
So never stop, just spin

    General CommentThis is the reason I love SoCo so much - their lyrics. Their songs are so full of feeling, and they're wonderful pieces of music on their own, but their lyrics are pieces in themselves. This song in particular, I think it's so interesting how he ends the first chorus with 'this world won't stop, so never stop, just spin.' It's almost like a pun - the world keeps spinning, it doesn't stop, so don't you stop either; go with the world. To me, it's talking to a friend or someone else who's going through a really hard time in their life, and telling them to keep at it, not to give up, because 'maybe you could win,' (you still have a shot at having a good life, no matter what bad things have happened to you). Just my 2/100 of a dollar, ^_^.

    General CommentThis is my favorite SoCo song (and you know you all want to kill me cause it's not Konstantine!) but the lyrics have helped me so many times when I just wanted to give up at something. SoCo is awesome.

    General CommentThis song just reminds me of the bad experiences that circle us in life, like maybe a relationship that you know should end..and not necessarily so you can be with one of the people in it, but so one of them will be brought back to the other side and less restricted. Kinda like life I suppose..

    General CommentThis is my favorite SC song. It just has such a great meaning to it. "If you wanna spin get yourself back in the game again throw down your money maybe you could win but this world won't stop so never stop, just spin." You only live once why not take risks. I loved it!

    General Comment"But this world won't stop, so never stop, just spin." That line right there. This song is so incredible. Whenever I get down and just feel like wallowing in my self pity or whatever, I just listen to this song and realize that the world's not going to end over whatever is wrong in my life. The sun will still come up tomorrow, the world will keep on spinning, so I will too.
