The Spin Inside

Adele’s take on chaos theory. I think this is the song she’s proudest of. So much fun to play. She handed me the lyric and said “make it funky and weird.”

Turntable Graveyard in the basement in 2011, a proper recording with overdubs. The song evolved over time. Check out this live version from 2013:

Lyrics

Grace in a maze with the walls that rearrange

Like the words to a song you don't know 

Make em up as you go along

Why doncha shift your paradox

Hijack the box

Möbius strip mall infinite taffy pull pop rocks

Pencil on a point

Marble in a bowl

One stop god shop go fish jelly roll

Cosmic comic esoterica

Sunday morning [wait!] mass hysteria

Something more original than sin

Anyplace is the best place to begin

Inside the spin inside the spin inside the spin

In side the spin inside the spin

In side the spin inside

The spin in side the spin inside

The spin in side the spin inside

The spin inside the . . .

Put your whole self in take your whole self out

Of the picture hocus focus everywhere at once 

Upon a time is what it's all about

[In no time at all is what it's all about]

Space phase

Liquid motivation

Universal syncopation

Electronical oscillation

Rules sway

As you play the change

Hot tar and radiators

Shimmer in the milky way rising like a gladiator

Dark matter light goddess

Heavy helping soul narcotics

Hypothetical evangelical

Meta-quizzical biochemical 

Something more original than sin

Anyplace is the best place to begin

Inside the spin inside the spin inside the spin

In side the spin inside the spin

In side the spin inside

The spin in side the spin inside

The spin in side the spin inside

The spin inside the . . .
