about

Why have we entrusted our mental well-being to external stimulus? The state of contentment is universal and yet we are addicted to the way THINGS make us feel.
The carnival is fun once in a while, but we only get sick if we spend too long there.
Sharing our lives with people we care about is more rewarding than a thousand shiny things, empty shopping trips or any other short term fix that merely distracts rather than satisfies.
Tame the wild, emotional horses that each day drag your well-being through heaven and hell and let the words of your friends soothe the fires of dissatisfaction that burn holes in your pockets.

lyrics

Well how can I keep from going under?
When these moods spin on the breeze asunder
When the wave crashes down and I go under
The storm in my head, I'm deafened by the thunder

I think I might be going crazy
Am I going crazy?
I think I might be going crazy
Am I going crazy?

Flapping my flippers just to stay in play
These pinball emotions bounce me through the day
Flapping my flippers just to keep the storm at bay
These pinball emotions bouncing through the day

Oh the flashing lights, it's like a carnival
But you're not alone, no need to be unsure
The flashing lights, it's like a carnival
But you're not alone, no need to be at war

Well how can I keep from going under?
When these moods spin on the breeze asunder
When the wave crashes down and I go under
The storm in my head, I'm deafened by the thunder
I think I might be going crazy
Am I going crazy?
I think I might be going crazy
Am I going crazy?

Staring down the tracks of this rollercoaster ride
Some days like Dr Jekyll, other days you want to hide
Staring down the tracks of this rollercoaster ride
Some days like Dr Jekyll, other days you want to hide

Oh the flashing lights, it's like a carnival
But you're not alone, no need to be unsure
The flashing lights, it's like a carnival
But you're not alone, no need to be at war

It's all right now, it's all right now
It's all right now, it's all right now
It's all right now, it's all right now
It's all right now
It's all right, all right, all right
It's all right now

Is it any wonder we're caught in a spin?
When attention spans are spread so thin
Drawn in by the newest craze
But our own minds are still a maze
Stressed and stretched to breaking point
These shallow attractions just disappoint
There's more to life than the carnival
More to life than the carnival

If you make a break, you won't fall behind
You can find true peace in your own mind
Step away from this shallow parade
Leave behind a life of upgrades
Break free from your possessions
Go beyond short-term obsessions
There's more to life than the carnival
More to life than the carnival

It’s all right now, it’s all right now
You can still breathe on your own
Still breathe on your own
It’s all right now, it’s all right now
You can still breathe on your own
Still breathe on your own
Still breathe on your own
Still breathe on your own

Oh the flashing lights, it's like a carnival
But you're not alone, no need to be unsure
The flashing lights, it's like a carnival
But you're not alone, no need to be at war

The carousel keeps turning
But we can get off anytime
From our roller coaster days
We can escape the pantomime
Escape the pantomime

The carousel keeps turning
But we can get off anytime
From our roller coaster days
We can escape the pantomime
Escape the pantomime
