Apartment Wrestling

There’s a dance I do when no one is looking
There’s a dance that leads to something bizarre
I know some say I’m overindulgent
There’s a dance I do when I’m in my car

Here comes that hurricane (oh… tell somebody, got somebody)
She’s movin’ this a way (oh…with somebody, help somebody)

There’s a steep hill, road kill, lookin’ it over
Raise an eyebrow, slow down, wooden ya know
Space ship, hand grip, pocket decoder
Wet naps, road maps, all over the floor

Taught myself apartment wrestling
Taught myself the way it’s done
Learned to dance among the shadows
Found a way to dance at home

Don’t turn my love away (ohh- tell somebody, got somebody)
We wrestle ev’ryday (ohh- with somebody, help somebody)

In a world so full of emotional garbage
It’s no wonder some folks go it alone
You can pile that shit from here to Alaska
That’s the reason I’ll be dancing at home

If you get an invitation
You don’t need to fix your hair
If you get it then you got it
Dancin’ in your underwear

Got to live a life of danger—got to dance where no one goes
Got to wrestle with my conscience—got to struggle in my soul
