The car rocks to and fro
I feel like letting go, when I can see the world from upside down
The people look a little like candyfloss, as the big wheel spins around
As I approach the top, I hope it never stops
I try to hold my breath the whole way round
I see goldfish, winning people, they don’t see me, as the big wheel spins around....Look at it spin, Look at it spinning around
They’re standing at the turn stiles, the crowd stretches out for miles
I’ve got the ride all to myself, but I can’t say that I’m glad to see them standing there, watching the big wheel spin around.
I can’t seem to think straight, life’s never so great
I’m not spinning around when I’m on the ground
And now I find myself reaching out for help as they prepare to pull my whole life down
It took them only half an hour to stop the wheel, to stop the wheel from spinning

unique hybrid of pop, rock, psychedelia it firmly nestles its roots in twisted vocal hooks and heavy driven guitar riffs built on a kaleidoscope of beautiful noise.
