Rick Springfield – Dance This World Away lyrics

Everybody looks so spaced out there
Busy bowing to the priests of noise
Turn it up and make it drown out the warning
Bad news for the girls and boys
Everybody looks so romantic
Acting like it's nothing at all
Looking out for number one
Working for the week and living to the beat

Dance This World Away
Dance This World Away
Dance This World Away
Dance This World Away

I see people all dressed like Nero
Fiddling while Rome burns in strife
Personal responsibility zero

We've lost that rhythm of life
There's a shadow on our bright horizon
It won't be manna falling out of the sky
The hard rain hits everyone
Working for the week and living to the beat

Dance This World Away
Dance This World Away
Dance This World Away
Dance This World Away

Somewhere there is a ship that's sinking
Why do I think that nobody knows
Looking out for number one
Working through the week and dancing to the back beat

Dance This World Away
Dance This World Away
Dance This World Away
Dance This World Away
