lyrics

I couldn’t be further from the scene I see the carrot dangling I see the carrot on a string I think the string’s attached to me I think it’s moving when I move I think it’s moving when I move Don’t ask me how I know, it’s just the feeling That I get when we’re spiraling

It’s fair to say it’s more than some Who have another opinion They see the carrot dangling And think they’re moving closer in They would do anything to win They would do anything to win Don’t ask me how I know it’s just the feeling That I get when we’re spiraling

Who fires the starting gun While we orbit around the sun? Who carries the trophies home? Who carries the trophies home? And after the West gets won After the East gets won What do they do with us When our racing days are done?

With your sense of ambition You will never buckle Your drive has always been white knuckle But fair’s not fair It’s got a real cold shoulder The eye for an eye Is in the eye of the beholder Was taught a circle was the most perfect shape But not so much in this case Not when you’ve been tricked into running Someone else’s race Don’t ask me how I know, it’s just the feeling That I get when we’re spiraling

Who fires the starting gun While we orbit around the sun? Who carries the trophies home? Who carries the trophies home? And after the West gets won After the East gets won What do they do with us When our racing days are done? What do they do with us?
