The Circle Must Be Broken

The Circle Must Be Broken kicked on the Destroy Nate Allen “solo” album Until My Ankle’s Better. In many ways, it’s a rumination on Nate’s compulsive tendencies that would eventually set him on a path to address his addiction to work.

Well I’ve gotta find out & I gotta know now what you’re gonna want me to do
Well I’ve gotta find out & I gotta know now what you’re gonna want me to do
Well I’ve gotta find out & I gotta know now what you’re gonna want me to do
Yes I’ve got a little problem and it’s rubbing off on you

see I’m constantly buzzing and moving all around
I’ve got so much insecurity I can’t let myself slow down
but the circle must be broken yes the wheel it must be jammed
because I’m not who I’m meant to be and I gotta find to who I am

Chorus:

Well I’ve gotta find out & I gotta know now what you’re gonna want me to do
Well I’ve gotta find out & I gotta know now what you’re gonna want me to do
Well I’ve gotta find out & I gotta know now what you’re gonna want me to do
Yes I’ve got a little problem and it’s rubbing off on you

see I’ve tried to prove my value and that’s a stupid as it sounds
I thought if I could just work hard enough my dreams they would be found
but the circle must be broken and the wheel it must be jammed
because I’m not who I’m meant to be and I’ve gotta find who I am

Chorus:

Well I’ve gotta find out & I gotta know now what you’re gonna want me to do
Well I’ve gotta find out & I gotta know now what you’re gonna want me to do
Well I’ve gotta find out & I gotta know now what you’re gonna want me to do
Yes I’ve got a little problem and it’s rubbing off on you

but in the end it’s inconclusive if I’ve accomplished everything
by pressing through to all my goals with false realities
but the circle must be broken and the wheel it must be jammed
because I’m not who I’m meant to be & I’ve gotta find who I am
