about

I wrote these lyrics way back long ago, but they still ring true. Changed the music from punk-funk to blues-rock, and got a cool guitar sound for the solo by aiming microphones at everything except the amp.

lyrics

everybody’s running ‘round in circles
they like to think they keep one step ahead
crying ‘bout the weight that’s on their shoulders
when everybody’s fate hangs from a thread.

rich man grinning counting up his pennies
poor man in the street he’s begging bread
the wishes of the few dictate the many
remember what your prophet said?

and the world keeps spinning ‘round...

judge he tells his version of the story
jury sit and smile without a sound
witness stake his claim to fame and glory
guilty party nowhere to be found.

and the world keeps spinning ‘round...

you may have some fatal expectations
you may have some heavy dues to pay
but now is not the time for hesitation
or wondering why things have to be this way.

‘cause everybody’s running ‘round in circles
they like to think they keep one step ahead
crying ‘bout the weight that’s on their shoulders
when everybody’s fate hangs by a thread.
