i wasted all my years
been chasing all my fears
from another, brighter than you
i gave in long ago
to make it to the show
it's not easy
when you're alone
all your prayers
in my ears
don't you care
whir yourself around
just to fall back down
whir yourself around
my honey, little girl
come on let's go for a whirl
it's the early sign of sleep
she says she wants to marry me
she says she wants a baby
it's not easy
when you're scared
whir yourself around
just to fall back down
whir yourself around
all your prayers
in my ears
don't you care

    General CommentI swear "it's the early sign of sleep " should be "it's still early, the sun is sleeping". Just listened to it twice on headphones at high volume and that's my $0.02. :)

    General CommentThis is my favourite song of Pisces. It's truly a great song. "Whir yourself around. Just to fall back down" is something I relate too. Its like you think you've made some big change and then everything just falls to shit again. Wonderful song.

    General Commentit doesn't sound like he's singing "whir" at all... something like "buoy," maybe... or "whooee" or "phooey"... or maybe "asgashigangaopwgewqioh"

    maybe i have a messed up copy

    General CommentThis is a Siamese outtake. And you're right he says "asgashigangaopwgewqioh." I'm serious he mentioned it in the liner notes to "Pisces Iscariot."
