CONSIDER THE POSSIBILITY
Look, no one's watching.
Even if they stare at you,
they're thinking about debts,
or pain, or moments lost,
they never will regain.
You're no one special.
They don't really care.
And if they dare,
you meet each stupid leer,
you show them
you have courage,
strength and will.
And if you fail.
Your laugh will make them ill.
So screw 'em
if they're paralyzed by fear.
Now, take the risk
to earn a memory,
to spin past gravity,
transcend the grave.
Light-headed, weightless, giddy,
bold and brave
through movement, music, magic
you'll feel free.
If life is dying,
why not take this chance?
Get off your ass, you fool.
Get up and dance.
