Dark and dancing

Did you choose the lessons you were learned
I've never known
What was punishment, what was earned
I've watched and put down
These shelves hold wisdom and folly in equal measures
I know them all but I ask you yet again
Did you ever choose, the lessons you were learned
Of many things a man may know
Heavy, compared, seems what he has in tow
Yet you need but sidestep
The lessons, of the particular life
A person, need not say
Simply herself, and everyday
And give me this sensation
Of dancing in the dark
They seem to go together
Dark and dancing
And here I am yet again
I'm dancing in the dark
Listening to Cannibal Corpse and cutting trees with a chainsaw, now that's metal
