The Lyrics

After 10 years of ballet, it's time to let go. Junior year is coming up,
and I won't have a life, anyway. Besides, I feel like I'm not
progressing, and... well I suppose my soul's burdens are
poured out in this parody.
Been dancing through the years
Un-til my life just seemed to disappear
Instead a shadow's there
Like I care they are everywhere

Been dancing life away
My time just ticked and tocked with ba-a-let
Now is yesterday
Cut off from the world–so far away

I walk by people who do not know my name
Ignorant they are:"Life's a game"
Sometimes I reach for a hand that is not there
Till then the dance floor's bare

Woe-oh, woe-oh, woe-oh,woe-oh...
Woe-oh, woe-oh, woe-oh,woe-oh...

Ba-lan-cing on a thread
That ex-ists somewhere in my head
My a-byss looms deep,deep below
It's where my monster breathes

Everyone just seems per-fect
Precise, and knows just what to do
Check the bed I made to know I'm still on cue
I don't need to dance

I cannot dance
I will not dance
I hate to dance
Tears rolling...

I walk by people who do not know my name
Ignorant they are:"Life's a game"
Sometimes I reach for a hand that is not there
Till then the dance floor's bare

Woe-oh, woe-oh, woe-oh,woe-oh...
Woe-oh, woe-oh, woe-oh,woe-oh...

Been dancing life away
My time just ticked and tocked with ba-a-let
Now is yesterday
Cut off from the world–so far away

I walk by people who do not know my name
Ignorant they are:"Life's a game"
Sometimes I reach for a hand that is not there
Till then the dance floor's bare
