Dance baby dance



Dance, when the way is congested, dance thru that crowd.
Dance when you feel trapped dance in and all around.
Dance when you feel angry stomp your fucking feet
Dance when in bed tear up those fucking sheets.
Dance when you want to scream do both
Dance when things are slipping away, wrap it all up close
Dance when you feel the need
Dance when life knocks you to your knees
Dance when you want to fight
Dance all day or thru the night
Dance when you want to quit
Dance when you only wish to exist
Dance to free yourself
Dance when you can do nothing else
