Spindle – Carousel lyrics

Place this coin in the back of your mouth
Now swallow it down
This will show you who is who
And what what's all about
Turn the lights down
Pink and blue, and yellow too
Cotton candy clouds are filling the room
Just hang on, you'll really get lost
If you get off too soon
You can trot
You can pace
There's no winner in this game
Here, the horses take the reins
This ingénue is giving you away
A few more coins should last you the night
With carousel shoes
And painted eyes
I think you'll do just fine
They'll never know what you've got inside
Just go towards the carousel lights
They can't take what you don't let them find
We go fast
We go slow
We get high and we get low
We dine with devils and dance with clowns
We go round, and round, and round
And when we spin
We don't care who's skin we're in
It's all fun and games
Till i trip on their footprints
Time and again
I turn on the lights
But the room is vacant
For relishing sins i am bridled in this desolation
We go up
We go down
We get up to fall back down
It has cost you so much
For this little bout
And your coins have just run out
The most beautiful things come from such dark places
All these things that i learn
Just keep filling up all the spaces
Well, my heart used to recognize their faces
From time to time
I think
I pick up traces
