The Spinning Room
Written by Matthew Ryan, Marc Byrd
and Andrew Thomson

Let's draw a curtain on this scene
I'm not judgmental, I'm not mean
But there's a bad vibe in this bar
Outside there's somewhere under the stars
All this neon makes me sick
Know your limits, that's the trick
I should've known when we walked in
First Kesha, then Eminem then...

The spinning room
I love everybody
I love everyone
I'm not leaving too soon
I'll finish when I'm done
Have you met my new friend Tito?
He's a generous guy
He said the red ones keep you grounded
But it's the blue ones you should try
