Do You Want To Dance

Do you want to dance
when you're alone
in front of all your fears
with the passion
of a tribal ritual
to make it all better?

Do you want to dance
in front of them
with the passion
of believing
all you need is love?

Do you want to dance
when you feel you're whole
in front of their eyes
with the passion
of dancing on their heads
with negotiation?

Do you want to dance
the last dance
outside of your body
with passion,
sweat, and desire
on videotape?

Do you want to dance
the first dance
inside your body
with the passion
of romancing the cosmic connection
with the rest of your life?

Do you want to dance
like a candlelight shadow
in front of the questions
with the passion
of listening to
the childrens laughter?

We made them dance

This is how I made you
I took the fibres of black
Spread the twinkling of my heart
Across your body
To make the most beautiful night in the world
I spinned it round and round
Made it dance the river dance
Made it dance the morning dance
Made it dance the evening dance
I made it dance

This is how you made me
You took the fibres of red
Spread the beating of your blood
Across my body
To make the most beautiful love in the world
You spinned it round and round
Made it dance the dance of your seed
Made it dance the dance of your touch
Made it dance the dance of your breath
You made it dance

That's why
The eagle was flying
The sea was foaming
The ground was singing
Children were laughing
Fires were burning
Across the hearths

We made them dance

Ovako sam te stvorila
Uzeh tkanice crnog
I prosuh treptaje svog srca niz tvoje tijelo
Da stvorim najljepšu noc ovoga svijeta
Zavrtjeh je ukrug ukrug
Da pleše ples rijeke
Da pleše ples jutra
Da pleše ples veceri
Da pleše

Ovako si me stvorio
Uze tkanice crvenog
Prosu otkucaj svoje krvi niz moje tijelo
Da stvoriš najljepšu ljubav ovoga svijeta
Zavrtio je ukrug ukrug
Da pleše ples tvog sjemena
Da pleše ples tvog dodira
Da pleše ples tvog daha
Da pleše

I zato je
Orao letio
More se pjenilo
Zemlja je pjevala
Djeca se smijala
I vatre ognjištem gorjele

Oni su plesali zbog nas

We Have Danced Tango

We have danced tango in exploiting the earth
We stamp our feet as we move to explore
the whole dancing space on the stage
We only look into the gaiety in our own eyes
as we seek to declare ourselves the winner
in our mastery of the magical move of our body
We explore the mother earth, making believe
that the whole stage is ours to exploit without limit.

With the rhythm of our tango dance
we create atom bombs and other weapons
for the countless crowd
We choke the trees, plants and animals
with our inventions and chemicals
We stuff our water and air
with poison and carbon from our own hands.
We continue to dance our tango dance
claiming that the whole stage is ours.

And we dance and dance our tango dance
until music ceases to be replayed
for the mother earth announces
that our own clever dance and music
choke her to death and our tango on
the great stage cannot at all continue.

the ballerina

youve left her, standing on her toes
bleeding for all the things she cant let go
a dancer slowly dying
in the process of her passion
her blood drops are still crying
for a beautiful attraction

he gave her the inspiration to dance more
he gave her a dance to live for
so deeply taken was she
even her pulse and beat
that when he left, she'd bleed
in her heart and her feet

she keeps dancing for his return
dancing because its better than the hurt
she doesnt want to crash
shes his ballerina, his love
but once this dance is in the past
then their love is done

she spinning her body and head
twisting so demented, till her bodys dead
her mind keeps going
her feet keep landing
her dress still flowing
till theres no understanding
she only wants to find where hes standing

this lovely ballerina, so swept away
in his dance, or his trance....
it doesnt matter if he doesnt go away
she loves him more than life
he is her final, sorrowful dance
and her feet take the knife
that ends both their trance
but she kept dancing as she bled
dancing for his love
until this ballerina finally, and endlessly fell dead
