mad machine spinnin worm in a wheel
soul in a black hole snake in a peel
rotating madhouse strobe on the wall
melting mirrors distorting the fall

rotoriculous spinner of death
shaken my head and stolen my breath
rotoriculous spinner of life
you’re a mad machine on a wicked wicked ride

rolling backwards on a serpent mile
millions of strangers caught in its guile
plead the fifth of insanity
sinister railway of mockery yeah

thrill junkie jive on a permanent fix
screams cut like razors to the quick
I told you before, you'll never escape
it’s a mad machine come and join the race

on a wicked wicked ride
