"Flesh and Blood Dance" as written by Ben Hales and Peter Wilson....
I dreamed of Cinderella
The Queen of fairytales
I was her Prince Charming
Desirable and real
But I’m just a lonesome skeleton
Not worth a second glance
But oh my bones are aching for a chance
To flesh and blood dance

Faces in the mirror
I’m haunted by the dead
Voices of old sweethearts
Calling me to bed
These ghosts come uninvited
Chimeras of romance
But still my bones are shaking for a chance
To flesh and blood dance

Flesh here in my hands
Blood here in my heart
Lips hard on my lips
How my flesh and blood dance

Palaces and pleasures
I’ve had them for my own
But I’d lose them in an instant
To have more than these bones
But greed has turned me deathly
I’m caught within it’s trance

Truax Chant
Do you want to dance?
Would you like to dance?
All we want is flesh and blood!
Don’t you want to live?
Snap out of your trance?
All we want is flesh and blood!
This dance-floor’s lying empty
Come on, let’s dance!
All we want is flesh and blood!
Do you want to dance?
Everybody dance!
All we want is flesh and blood!

Every bone is breaking for a chance
To flesh and blood dance
Flesh and blood dance

    General CommentIt is about people being in a trance brought on my advertising, television, publishing etc. Brought on by the way we are told we should act the correct way to act but The "dance" is the feeling of being free from the robotic style that people have taken on today
