Silicon, Saline, Poison
Inject me
Baby, I'm a free
Bitch;
I'm a free
Bitch.

Some girls won't dance to the beat of the track.
She won't walk away, but she won't look back.
She looks good but her boyfriend says she's a mess,
She's a mess,
She's a mess,
Now the girl is stressed.
She's a mess,
She's a mess,
She's a mess,
She's a mess.

Baby loves to dance in the dark,
'Cuz when he's lookin' she falls apart.
Baby loves to dance in the dark.

Baby loves to dance in the dark,
'Cuz when he's lookin' she falls apart.
Baby loves to dance, loves to dance in the dark.

Run run her kiss is a vampire grin.
The moon lights her way while she's howlin' at him.
She looks good but her boyfriend says she's a tramp,
She's a tramp,
She's a vamp,
But she still does her dance.
She's a tramp,
She's a vamp,
But she still kills the dance.

Baby loves to dance in the dark,
'Cuz when he's lookin' she falls apart.
Baby loves to dance in the dark.

Baby loves to dance in the dark,
'Cuz when he's lookin' she falls apart.
Baby loves to dance, loves to dance in the dark.

In the dark,
She loves to dance in the dark,
In the dark,
She loves, she loves to dance in the dark.

Marilyn,
Judy,
Sylvia,
Tell 'em how you feel girls.

Work your blonde (Jean) Benet Ramsey
We'll haunt like Liberace.
Find your freedom in the music,
Find your Jesus,
Find your Kubrick.

You will never fall apart,
Diana you're still in our hearts.
Never let you fall apart,
Together we'll dance in the dark.

Baby loves to dance in the dark,
'Cuz when he's lookin' she falls apart.
Baby loves to dance in the dark.

Baby.

Baby loves to dance in the dark,
'Cuz when he's lookin' she falls apart.
Baby loves to dance, loves to dance in the dark.

In the dark.

    This song is saying how living your life based on keeping up your appearances is not fulfilling and will make you feel bad about yourself because you can never look as perfect as the media makes you think you 'ought' to be. She only feels comfortable in the dark because he can't see what she looks like (she can hide her flaws). He says she is a tramp because she has no real substance. She's a 'vampire' because she can't be 'in the light' - which means she can't show who she really is. Really, she doesn't want to see who that person is, because she knows it isn't going to be good.

    Baby is so hurt that she only does her own thing when no one is looking and when no one can see her. She smiles, dances, laughs, plays. Where/when no one can see her, like how we can't see anything either when it's dark. When she tries being herself and acting normal she is hated, made fun of, and reproved. She falls apart and is broken because she has to act: '(.
    I love this song. I am exactly like what she describes.
