about

This song is about being in a bit of a rut trying find to way out. My brother once tried to convince me that if you twisted around on a tire swing the exact same times in each direction that you would undo the dizziness effect. Spoiler: It doesn't work.

lyrics

My foreground is reliably
predictable, just wait and see.
Because I'm coming around the bend,
just as my momentum starts to descend.

I don't know why I insist on running round in circles.
I'm wearing a groove so deep it's up to my ankles.
And there's a comfort to be found in things that are familiar
but something tells me I'm taking it too far.

Do you know that feeling on a tire swing
where you're winding it back up again?
And you've already, just spun the other way,
and you're hoping it'll set you straight.

I don't know why I insist on running round in circles.
I'm wearing a groove so deep it's up to my ankles.
And there's a comfort to be found in things that are familiar
but something tells me I'm taking it too far

I know I'm reluctant to try because I feel unprepared
for the moment.
So when, will I finally
find my nerve?

My foreground is reliably
predictable, predictable just you wait and see.
Because I'm coming around the bend
just as my momentum starts to descend.

I don't know why I insist on running round in circles.
I'm wearing a groove so deep it's up to my ankles.
And there's a comfort to be found in things that are familiar
but something tells me I'm taking it too far.
Something tells me I'm taking it to far.
Something tells me I'm taking it to far
Something tells me I'm taking it to far
