Artist: My Morning Jacket
Spinning out gracefully
Going nowhere quickly
I am older, day by day
Still going back to my childhood way
Round and round patiently
Getting lost by the guide
And I am all worked up over nothing
Circuits all runnin' out
Connect my body deep into the ground
Circuits connect the earth to the moon
And link our heavenly bodies
And not a moment too soon
Well, you can fling open the windows
Or you can board 'em up
Satan's jeweled crown or Christ's humble cup
You think you'll find yourself out there
Out in the lion's den?
In some bloody battle over belief systems
Or disappear into the vacuum, total neutrality
Where you can't lose nothing but nothing can be gained
Well, anyway you cut it, we're just spinning around
Out on the circuit, over the hallow grounds
Out on the circuits, over the hallow ground
Endin' up in the same place that we started out
Right back in the same place, right back in the same place
That we started out
Let her know

I believe that this song means that no matter the way we try to take our lives fate has a way of keeping us on a "circuit" going in a direction that will take us "right back in the same place we started out" so we should just go with the flow.
I think circuits are a metaphor for chakras, and the song is about your power of free will. Will you choose to love or fear? fling open the windows or board them up?
