The music is calling
Preamble: for this Saturday's theme of DANCE.
I hear music. The beat begins.
It taps gently at my consciousness and slowly enters in.
It slides through my skull like the lift of warm caffeine
Raising pulse, slowing thoughts, it’s as if I’m in a dream…
Step by step I’m vanquished, it takes over my brain
It numbs my higher functions, until nothing remains
But the essence of me, and the desire to DANCE.
I wanna dance like no one is watching
I wanna dance like nobody cares
I wanna dance as if it meant something
But do I dare? Do I dare?
Dare I lose my mind and let my body take control
As the music’s getting louder and the self-made drugs take hold
Do I dare to take the next, big step into the dance?
I long to choose that state, I want to fall into the trance,
I want to lose all the weight that is holding me down
All the bits of being me that tie me to the ground
I want to let myself let go
Jung’s death of the ego
I want to be at one with everyone that’s on this dance floor
And with every single being that has ever danced before
As the music that pours from the stage
Joins each note that echoes through the ages
There’s no past and no future to hold us in chains
As the beat becomes my heartbeat and the tune flows in my veins
You gotta dance like a sacrifice in some ancient rite
You gotta dance like you know you’re gonna dance all night
You gotta dance though tomorrow it’ll hurt like hell
You gotta dance like you’re weaving some kind of magic spell
Dance against the tide
Like an act of suicide
You gotta dance for the glory of a cause to defend
You gotta dance like the music is never gonna end
Cos when it does,
And you stop to catch your breath
The silence will be loud
And the stillness will be like death.
