A new dawn waits for us tonight
If you play the cards, you're holding right
I swear I'll keep in party line
Cross my heart and hope to die
If I lose myself to rhythm
Doesn't mean I lose control

If I can't dance
If I can't dance
Oh, baby, if I can't dance
If I can't dance
If I can't dance

Then I don't need any part of your revolution
Can you see the action in my head?
The town we're painting turning red?
We need a new wave I can ride
If we are ever gonna turn this side
Politicize my own endeavors
I've no use for your protocol

[Chorus x2]

Oh darling don't be so unkind
The beat must never be denied

[Chorus x2]

    General CommentI caught V for Vendetta on TV recently and noticed this song, or at least the chorus, is pretty much a direct reference to a scene in it. I feel kinda dumb for not realizing before, haha.
