Hey, I Can Relate ….

I SPENT TOO LONG EITHER WISHING i COULD DANCE IN A WAY THAT ALWAYS LOOKED COOL OR WISHING I WAS COOL ENOUGH TO NOT CARE About What OTHER PEOPLE THOUGHT. MAINLY I DIDN’T DANCE. (The Dread and Desire Were Equal.) THE GROOVE IS SO MYSTERIOUS.  WE’RE BORN WITH It AND WE Lose IT AND THE WORLD Seems TO SPLIT Apart BEFORE OUR Eyes INTO STUPID AND Cool. WHEN WE GET IT BACK, the WORLD unifies AROUND US, AND BOTH STUPID AND COOL FALL AWAY. (Secretly Spaz-Dancing in My Room. I Still   Do This). i AM GRATEFUL TO THOSE KEEPERS  OF THE GROOVE … ANY KIND OF DANCING is BETTER  Than NO DANCING at ALL.”
