This Is Your Life, with special guests; give it to me straight
You never learn, back down you go with all the other apes

Now hold tight
Stay focused on that point of light
And just like learning to ride a bike
Then suddenly it occurs to me I just might be spinning

Around and 'round at the turnstile at Heaven's Gate
Where I'm stuck in a tug-o-war for my soul and there's no escape
Foolish game I refuse to play
Here's the tale of the Karmic
Castaway!

Shore leave at last
Oh, what a war
This guy could use a break
Hey, not so fast
Your country calls
There must be some mistake

Now breathe slow, sit back and relax and just let it flow
But hold on, I never cast my vote
And suddenly it's all clear to me that I just keep spinning

Around and 'round at the turnstile at Heaven's Gate
It's as though I'm a refugee from the heart of our Milky Way
Guinea pig for your passion play
Spend my days as the Karmic
Castaway!

Oooh
Ascended Masters claim
Seven levels to attain self realization
Save an over dose of cosmic rays
[Which] realigns your dna
And forces early graduation
(It's graduation time)

But to my western mind
It just seems so asinine
Now, you could find yourself going 'round not a hundred, a thousand
But a million lifetimes

"Ok, now here's a big surprise, Jim.
Looks like [the] coach is sending down this season's underdog, number five twenty-seven sixty-six.
Now this guy's coming off one hell of a losing streak — you couldn't ask for a more perfect example of the old adage
"if at first you don't succeed..."

Because it's preordained
But before you all get too carried away
My higher self has a point to make
This whole damn thing's rather inhumane
Won't you please stop spinning me

Spinning 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round...

And 'round and 'round at the turnstile at Heaven's Gate
Nothing more than your eyes and ears,
Volunteer in an altered state
Catch a comet, now don't be late
Got a voice but don't have a say
Karmic debt's such a bitch to pay
So prepare for the Karmic
Castaway!

Don't want to play this game

Another Groundhog Day

It's more fun that way...
