Catherine Wheel
Here’s the song:

[audio:catherinewheel.mp3]

Annnnd, here are the lyrics – instant sing-along! (You’ll have to imagine the bouncing ball yourself…)

Backseat driver with something to prove
she was runnin some daytime night moves
she said to leave the radio on
rolled out for a cigarette
don’t you stay too long/gonna play our song
but you know that song never came on
and I don’t think I’ll make it to the next turn of the screw
’cause the only thing that keeps me here is you
so roll on/sister roll on
hold on to the wheel
roll away forever/roll away from what you feel
take the car ’cause you come this far
who am I to keep you down?
’cause my world turns on Catherine Wheels
whenever you’re around
well I guess we bought what they sold us
believed in what they told us
that we’d be safe here on this holy ground
well I guess ain’t no one to blame
stood and watched it go up in flames
couldn’t even feel it burning down
and every night I have this dream where I’m sinking like a stone
just praying I’ll be waking up alone
so roll on/sister roll on
hold on to the wheel
roll away forever/roll away from what you feel
take the car ’cause you come this far
who am I to keep you down?
’cause my world turns on Catherine Wheels
whenever you’re around
who am I to keep you?
I just tried to reach you
with you it’s always on with the show
so I’m letting you go
whenever you want to roll

  • “well I guess we bought what they sold us
    believed in what they told us
    that we’d be safe here on this holy ground
    well I guess ain’t no one to blame
    stood and watched it go up in flames
    couldn’t even feel it burning down”
    sounds eerily political. was this the intent?

  • Wow, that’s deep. I’m gonna say yes, just because it makes me look smart…but to tell you the truth, that lyric really came more from an individual, or interpersonal, perspective. But I guess we’re all feeling it burning down now, right?
