He's at the show
talking feminism to get into your pants oh yeah
Well he'll quote Emma Goldman
but he'll never get up to dance
And who are these kids who come to the shows
determined not to have fun
I see them everywhere I go with their arms crossed
in the back the whole night long
One thing about rock and roll is
that it's freedom yeah
(?)The symbol and the literal and the theory and the practice (?)
So if you aren't dead then you might as well be dancing
and if you aren't dancing then you might as well be dead
I'm waiting for the show to end
in rioting oh yeah
to show us life is struggle
so we're fighting or we're dying and my
politics of dancing is the only cause worth fighting for
cause after the revolution every intersection will be a dance floor
One thing about rock and roll is
that it's freedom yeah
(?)The symbol and the literal and the theory and the practice (?)
So if you aren't dead then you might as well be dancing
and if you aren't dancing then you might as well be dead
yeah if you aren't dancing then you might as well be dead
yeah if you aren't dancing then you might as well be dead

    General CommentI get what he's saying, but someone who claims to have social anxiety himself should be more open-minded about people not dancing at shows.
