CIRCLES IN THE WOODS

[Verse] 

You’re teeth are turning blue  

from red, red wine. 

What’s gotten into you 

is a damned good time.  

You make animal sounds  

to deceive the sphinx.

And when I turn around

there’s fire in my drink.

 

[Pre-Chorus] 

Can’t you be good? 

Never understood 

why I’m burning 

in my dreams of you. 

Can’t you be good? 

Never understood 

why you’re drawing 

circles in the woods. 

  

[Chorus] 

Circles in the woods. 

Open up the book.

Circles inside squares  

never felt so good.  

A glass of wormwood  

in circles in the woods.  

Closed eye visions 

can’t be understood.

 

[Verse] 

You keep me satisfied 

warm and safe, 

then turn up the heat that 

takes your place. 

You have always  

done what you will. 

Why speak its name then, 

why make a deal? 

 

[Pre-Chorus] 

Can’t you be good? 

Never understood 

why I’m burning 

in my dreams of you. 

Can’t you be good? 

Never understood 

why you’re drawing 

circles in the woods. 

 

[Chorus] 

Circles in the woods. 

Open up the book.

Circles inside squares  

never felt so good.  

A glass of wormwood  

in circles in the woods.  

Closed eye visions 

can’t be understood.

 

[Bridge] 

Deeper and deeper,

you’re drifting farther and farther.

You want to live forever.

You ought to live for now.

Deeper and deeper,

farther and farther,

drifting towards the center,

land of a single sound.

 

[Pre-Chorus] 

Can’t you be good

with a life understood,

no great mysteries,

plain bad and good?

Never understood 

why you’re drawing 

circles inside squares

inside circles in the woods. 

 

[Chorus] 

Circles in the woods. 

Open up the book.

Circles inside squares  

never felt so good.  

A glass of wormwood  

in circles in the woods.  

Closed eye visions 

can’t be understood.
