Dance Of The Mad

This song is by Pop Will Eat Itself and appears on the album Cure For Sanity (1990).

(Get up, it's time)
(Get up and make it snappy)

Dance like a psycho, a sight like nothing on
Earth, keep a wide berth from anyone you might know
Show no first night nerves, all first serves
All aces, straight home bases

Sweating like a pig doing the jig at the gig
Of the century because we'll never be
Told by the old school, sold the old rules
Mad and bad to know though we're no fools

Downbeats down to earth, you down with me?
Clowning round the town, step easy
Cooking up new tricks, looking for a new kick
Found a new sound, found that it sticks

Heard about the bird, 'bout the plane and the superman?
Word is we can outlast anyone
Supercede the superfly guys who
Will concede they are dying flies

This range of suss could be dangerous
Let's test, at best it's religious
At worst a thirst, bursting for the next rhyme
All times sacred, even stripped naked

This damned nation, needing salvation
Reach out, teach in musical elation
Shout, get out of it, get within it
Get out of it, get within it

All the way mad and bad
All the way hyped
Play it mad, DJ
Play it bad, DJ
All the way mad and bad
All the way hyped

All the way, all the way
All the way, all the way hyped
All the way, all the way mad
All the way hyped

Are you with me, are you with it?

A musical nasty, fast as it has to be
A catastrophe, heavy duty
Chaos, 'cause I'm all attitude
The dude to kick start the party mood

Cue the truth, sleuths are never sober
The proof of youth, so move over, Rover
Hey, Disco King
(You've stopped dancing)

Best admit this hit's an obsession
Lost in lust, better listen to the lessons
Bright lights, big city
Broad minds, bored pretty easily

Busted just for justice sake
They can't control a soul, there's an outbreak
Of outrageous love, it's contagious
And it's here to save us

Some say, "No way, DJ don't play
The latest, the greatest, the mad and bad way"
If it ain't music, use it, abuse it
Call it a wall of noise but don't refuse it

This damned nation, needing salvation
Reach out, teach in musical elation
Shout, get out of it, get within it
Get out of it, get within it

All the way mad and bad
All the way hyped
Play it mad, DJ
Play it bad, DJ
All the way mad and bad
All the way hyped

Dedicated to all the bores
All the whores who forced the laws
You thought we'd stop dancing
Well, you were wrong

(1, say 2, say 3, say 4)
(5, say 6, say 7, say more)
(8, say 9, say 10 for 11)
(Kiss my ass and go to heaven)

(Y-O-U spells you)
