I feel like a spinnin' top or a dreidel
The spinnin' don't stop when you leave the cradle
You just slow down
'Round and around this world you go
Spinnin' through the lives of the people you know
We all slow down

How you gonna keep on turnin' from day to day?
How you gonna keep from turnin' your life away?
No days you can borrow, no time you can buy
No trust in tomorrow, it's a lie, oh

I feel like a spinnin' top or a dreidel
The spinnin' don't stop when you leave the cradle
You just slow down
'Round and around this world you go
Spinnin' through the lives of the people you know
We all slow down

How you gonna keep on turnin' from day to day? Oh
How you gonna keep from turnin' your life away?

And I feel like I'm a-dippin' and a-divin'
My sky shoes are spiked with lead heels
I'm lost in this star car I'm a-drivin'
But my air soul keeps pushin' big wheels

My world is a constant confusion
My mind is prepared to attack
My past, a persuasive illusion
I'm watchin' the future, it's black

What do you know? You know just what you perceive
What can you show? Nothin' of what you believe
And as you grow, each thread of life that you leave
Will spin around your deeds and dictate your needs
As you sell your soul and you sow your seeds
And you wound yourself and your loved one bleeds
And your habits grow and your conscience feeds
On all that you thought you should be
I never thought this could happen to me

I feel like a spinnin' top or a dreidel
The spinnin' don't stop when you leave the cradle
You just slow down
'Round and around this world you go
Spinnin' through the lives of the people you know
We all slow down

How you gonna keep on turnin' from day to day?
How you gonna keep from turnin' your life away? Oh

I feel like a spinnin' top or a dreidel
The spinnin' don't stop when you leave the cradle
You just slow down
You just slow down
You just - slow down
