“Dance on Glass”
Artist: The Mission
Albums: Gods Own Medicine (1986)

Run you ragged
Torn and jagged
Sharp tongued
Ripped and ragged
Cut it fine
The party line
Gee whiz it's happy time
Mirror mirror reflects me hazy
The heat's on
I'm running round crazy
Here's the rub
Don't miss a trick
White trash the punch and kick
I'll kiss the lips
That sealed your fate
I'll bring you flowers
And place them on your grave

Dream in colours swamped in dust
Sweet dreams all covered in rust
Looking at heaven
Kaleidoscope scene
Time to kill this crazy dream
You are revered
For your work with ink and mirrors
You are renowned
For bringing me steel and power

So dance dance
Dance on
Dance dance dance
Dance on glass
Dance dance
Dance on
Dance dance dance
Dance on glass

Shadow boxing mild and meek
Send me flowers
Tongue in cheek
Medicine man
Cast a spell
Head spins round
Kiss and tell

So dance dance
Dance on
Dance dance dance
Dance on glass
Dance dance
Dance on
Dance dance dance
Dance on glass

Cheeks on fire
Dance on glass
A touch of magic
A hint of class
Dress in leather
Play in the dark
Pain and torture leave their mark
Take no prisoners
Smash the lights
Lunatic fringe
Kiss and bite
Wild promise
Cheeks are red
Battle cry and then it's off to bed
You've taken my heart
And ripped it from my sleeve
Hold it in your hands
Grip your fingers and it starts to bleed

So dance dance
Dance on
Dance dance dance
Dance on glass
Dance dance
Dance on
Dance dance dance
Dance on glass

You shudder
At a touch
