Walking in a Circle - Santigold

[Verse 1]
Walking in a circle
I must have overshot my destiny
Keep hitting the hurdles
They drive them mothers right into me
Think I'm a sadist need no rescue
Feel like I'm buying into something
When you're in you, just accept the order
You know it's futile now to turn around

[Verse 2]
Walking in a circle
Not gon' let them get the best of me
My magic is eternal, I got some tricks, I keep 'em up my sleeve
Hey zombie, look at what it's come to
You're living in an empty dream
And here I am, right here among you
Awake, but don't know what it means

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm here on my own and here they come
I'm Hades, ride home tonight
Here they come to spite

[Chorus]
When the lights go out
I am a seer and I know my way out
I always hated that they make it so hard, complicated
Only when the lights go out
When the lights go out
I disappear and I know what it's all about
It's overrated, the upgrade is so hard, suffocates you
Only when the lights go out

[Post-Chorus]
Walking in a circle
Walking in a circle
Walking in a circle
Walking in a circle

[Verse 3]
Walking in a circle
Not gon' let them get the best of me
My magic is eternal, I got some tricks, I keep 'em up my sleeve
Hey zombie, look at what it's come to
You're living in an empty dream
And here I am, right here among you
Awake, but don't know what it means

[Chorus]
When the lights go out
I am a seer and I know my way out
I always hated that they make it so hard, complicated
Only when the lights go out
When the lights go out
I disappear and I know what it's all about
It's overrated, the upgrade is so hard, suffocates you
Only when the lights go out

[Post-Chorus]
Walking in a circle
Walking in a circle
Walking in a circle
Walking in a circle
Walking in a circle
Walking in a circle

[Bridge]
Now every time I turn around
I can't tell if I'm near or far
Been searching for it sometime now
Still no light ahead of me, still no light ahead of me
If I built a fortress, will they call me queen?
If it's built of lies it won't mean a thing
Nobody's counting 'round here no more
Out of touch, what we aiming for
Out of touch, what I came here for?

[Chorus]
When the lights go out
I am a seer and I know my way out
I always hated that they make it so hard, complicated
Only when the lights go out
When the lights go out
I disappear and I know what it's all about
It's overrated, the upgrade is so hard, suffocates you
Only when the lights go out
