Dance To Their Rhythm

"Trends in music are now transmitted laterally and collaboratively via the internet. You once had a series of gatekeepers in the adoption of a trend: the innovator, the early adopter, the late adopter, the early mainstream, the late mainstream, and finally the conservative. But now it goes straight from the innovator to the mainstream blah, blah, f**king blah..." The Independent

 

STOP! Don't the music press people talk a load of bollocks? Look, if you like it - listen to it. If you think it's good - it's good. It's your choice. Make up your own mind and don't listen to the hype. 


Always ask yourself "If I were to believe this rubbish, who benefits?" You'll find it's never you. It's always some talentless arsehole trying to con you out of your hard earned cash. It's called the music business and it's full of crap. Pop is to music what nursery rhymes are to literature. It obviously has it's place, but do you really want to be part of a heated discussion arguing whether 'Mary had a little lamb' is better than 'Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall'? Accept it for what it is and enjoy it, but don't take it seriously.



DANCE TO THEIR RHYTHM

 

I don't have time to wait around

And I won't stay where I don't belong

I've got no feelings for people who let you down

I can't forgive them what they've done

 

I see you running with the crowd

I see you fooling everyone

I know I have no right to spoil what you have found

But is it really what you want?

 

You dance to their rhythm

Like it's something that you've done before

And you give every time that they ask you for more

You dance to their rhythm

Like it's everything you need

But I know the truth so don't lie to me

 

My feet are firmly on the ground

And I'll decide what's right or wrong

If you want to live your life with your head up in the clouds

Well, that's alright just carry on


And dance to their rhythm

Like it's something that you've done before

And you give every time that they ask you for more

Dance to their rhythm

Like it's everything you need

But I know the truth so don't lie to me

 

I don't have time to wait around

And how things change when you stay too long

I know once you needed me, but I can't help you now

I think it's time that I was gone

 

So dance to their rhythm

Like it's something that you've done before

And you give every time that they ask you for more

Dance to their rhythm

Like it's everything you need

But I know the truth so don't lie to me
