"Round & Round & Round" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'donnell, Perry Bamonte and Jason Toop Cooper....
Round and round and round and round and round we go!
Trying so hard to get a hold of everyone here
We've got to show how much we love them all
We squeak with idiot fake surprise
Flap our hands and flutter our eyes
And lap up all their stupid lies
We've got to love them all

And I really don't know why we do it like this
Imitation smiles and how "It's wonderful to be here!"
I'm really not sure what we're so scared we'll miss

So round and round and round and round and round we go!
Hanging on every shape they throw
It's strange the way we can't say no
Until we love them all

So we laugh at every stupid joke
And smoke and choke and point and poke
And gag on countless lines
How much we love them all!

And I really don't know why we do it like this
Imitation smiles and how "It's wonderful to be here!"
I'm really not sure what we're so scared we'll miss

Maybe it's the sex with the drugs and the fools
Or maybe it's the promise of belief
Maybe it's the pleasure and the pain of the cruel
Or maybe it's the promise of relief
And I know we've said it so many times before
"Once more and never again"
But however many times that we've said it before
Once more is never the end..

    General CommentTO ME THIS HAS THE SAME MEANING AS THE PARTY SCENE IN THE MINT CAR VIDEO. tHEY WERE PROBABLY PREOCCUPIED WITH A LOT OF FAKE BULLSHIT AT THE TIME THEY MADE THE ALBUM.

    General CommentWell I guess this is kind of about the band itself, right?

    I reckon Watching Me Fall and 39 from Bloodflowers are far superior (they're a bit more personal, I suppose, but also less self-referential, which helps.)

    General Commentyo me i think this song is about keeping up with the crowd and trying to be cool

    AND I REALLY DON'T KNOW WHY WE DO IT LIKE THIS
    IMITATION SMILES AND HOW "IT'S WONDERFUL TO BE HERE!"
    I'M REALLY NOT SURE WHAT WE'RE SO SCARED WE'LL MISS

    it's really not wonderful to be here people just fake it so they will like them and some and choke and point and poke doing what they do and gossip

    well thats what i think

    but you don't want to do it but you don't want to be left out...
