Head to toe rayon, don’t light a match
We were good and we’re starting from scratch
Going to a place that never existed
And probably never will, yeah
Oh, a blue light basement on a throw-down autonomy zone
Where we dim the lights and we’re really not that lonesome
Leave your context at home and leave your irony at the door
Tonight we’ll even the score
Well, tonight we mean it
When we dance
Well, tonight we mean it
When we cry
Well, tonight we mean it
When we laugh
Well, tonight, tonight yeah, yeah
I know everybody here would love to get down
And to wipe the slate clean new
And do what they want and say what they mean
And eliminate the, uh, existential quandaries of modern, uh, postmodern reality, ya dig?
No issues! No motives! No problems! No questions!
Just sexy people and purity of intention
Sounds so good, I can barely bring myself to mention
It’s my sad, sad invention
Well, tonight we mean it
When we dance
Well, tonight we mean it
When we cry
Well, tonight we mean it
When we laugh
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
I lost my invitation and I don’t know where I’m going
I might just drive around and try to listen for something weird
Yeah, you’re welcome to come along.
Well, tonight we mean it, yeah!
When we dance
Well, tonight we mean it, oh
When we laugh
Well, tonight we mean it
When we cry
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight

    General CommentIt's about disregarding all of the uptight bastards of the world and finally doing what you've always wanted to, as they're usually the most pent up desires. Living life with a purpose, making connections with others, not caring what others thing, no grudges, no holds barred, and having a fucking fun time while you're at it.
    One of my favorite Plan songs, if not (at some times) my favorite. ;)
