We Dance


Circles * We're making circles * You know we're making circles with our hands

We make circles * We're making circles * We do it so that we might understand

We walk around * Around in circles * In circles we're always walking around

Walking around * Around in circles * We walk while we listening to the sound

We're building * Building circles * On the ground and straight up in the air

The perfect shape * Is a circle * We cut them in our crops and in our hair

We dance

Total strangers * Standing in circles * No rhyme or reason as to where they stand

The perfect shapes * Circles * Strangers running in circles 'cross the land

Broken circles * Broken circles * The rocks and sticks and stones have been defiled

All of my days * Moving in circles * I can't keep my mind from running wild

Standing around me * In a circle * Total strangers act like they all know my name

My mind is spinning * Spinning in circles * I try to understand it just the same

We dance

Perfect squares * And rectangles * The corners of the borders of our world

Perfect squares * And rectangles * Border the lives of every boy and girl

Big monsters * And rectangles * Invade our days and live inside our dreams

Big monsters * And rectangles * Living in our offices and screams

See the corners * Of the circles * Corners made of plastic, wood and earth

See the corners * Of the circles * Circles we inherited at birth

We dance

And we dance

In circles we dance

We dance
