slaves to the entrancing beats
turned to frenzy when we feel the
in our feet, our hearts, our hips
heads bowed
slam them in the air like
nothing else matters
like you haven't gone past curfew
and that guy didn't grope you just now

lights dance
a forest of limbs sway
a sea anemone
that could shock! you
into rhythmic convulsions

to be in the masses
transports you in and out
of the collective hype, energy
the madness of this crowd
you forget yourself
then remember
commuting from your own body
to the deep ancient spirit
that lives in our blood

better to lose yourself
than to feel apart
from this hallowed hip hop
