lyrics

in the dead of night
deep inside my cell
saw the brightest light
shine from somewhere else
as it came to life
felt it cast its spell
and the carousel was turning

i’m on a carousel

middle of the dark
i’m lying all alone
little green spark
twinkle shining from my phone
i don’t know what i’m searching for
but why not
wishing on a star my hands are white hot
now i’ve got all the colors in a whirl
revolving while i spin and swirl
everybody follow me
follow me
cuz i’ve got all the colors in the world
tour all these sites like i’m on a boat
float maneuvering my eye site high on a post
ghosts illuminate the night like
two minute lite bright
in tune with the zeitgeist
the movement is so human and lifelike
forget the small talk
gimme the festival slot
the best that ya’ll got
leave me up here
on my pedestal
while the rest of ya’ll watch the spectacle
please don’t let me fall off

i have never seen you but i know you’re over there

we are aliens and odd ones
orphaned by chosen boundaries
adorned in algorithms
the schisms of hidden industries
in the streets we all are strangers
gaze in the faces disconnect
we form we click repeat deform
and in defeat
we disrespect
we are all those orphans
who can’t forgive our families
a tribe that's not divided
just blinded
by our realities
our scars are what bind us
we toss and scream and lay awake
the antidote of the in between
is to put our dreams on layaway

all i wanted was to win at everything and never fail
all i wanted was to live my life upon a carousel
