Dancehall Dreams

Lyrics

the dancehalls mutter in my dreams

(everything grows, everything rises) the century's bursting at the seams (everything grows, everything rises)

high kicks, swirling skirts multicolored laughter rose red, swirling lines burst in vibrant song the gentlemen with hats of silk

(everything grows, everything rises) dream of tasting mother's milk (everything grows, everything rises)

sharp lines, curlyqueues multicolored laughter straw hats, swirling lace burst in vibrant song a picnic lunch spread on the grass

(everything grows, everything rises) nudes and dandies of the upper class (everything grows, everything rises)

top hats, monocles multicolored laughter floodlights, curtains rise and burst in vibrant song
