Who do you circle round?

Who do you circle round
Who is it circles round you
Is it circles round you?
Who is it circles round you
Do you circle round who
It is circles round you?

The ghost around the one it haunts
The want around the thing that wants
The way the mind just wanders off and then returns to
The thought around the second thought
Love or gravity or law
Whatever name it’s got it’s got me
Circling round you…

Lyrics from “Orbital” by Josh Ritter, from his 2010 album So Runs the World Away (titled after a line from Hamlet).
