New York Dolls

The New York Dolls is an American rock band, formed in New York in 1971. The band's protopunk sound prefigured much of what was to come in the punk rock era; their visual style influenced the look of many new wave and 1980s-era glam metal groups, and they began the local New York scene that later spawned the Ramones, Blondie, Television and Talking Heads. more »

Been cravin' more life and more love
That lives in the soul of my heart
Don't wanna be no artist
I'm a dancin', singin' work of art

You lit my heart with fiery aggression and you showed me
The fury of love, sex and affection that ya owed me

(In danger)
But I ain't scared
(In danger)
I found the splendor there

(Dancin')
Atop a flamin' pit
(We're dancing)
We are creating it
(We're dancing)
Right on the lip of a volcano

Nature with its true voice cries out, undissembled, "Be as I am!"
Revealed in its wildest, most generous incarnation

(In danger)
Devil-may-care
(In danger)
The fire's everywhere

(We're dancing)
So let the fire lick
(We're dancing)
We are creating it
(We're dancing)
On the lip of a volcano
Let's dance!

In the center of action of my psyche's need for love
I want liberation and joy
In a paroxysm of intoxication, inspiration
Ain't no way to be coy

(In danger)
A blazing glare
(in danger)
I found the splendor there

(Dancing)
Won't letcha slip
(We're dancing)
Let the lava rip
(We're dancing)
On the lip of a volcano

(Dancing)
We are creating it
(We're dancing)
So let the fire rip
(We're dancing)
Right on the lip of a volcano
A volcano
A volcano

Thrown in the dance with the mystics
Burning me up with its music
Sensualistic
Ritualistic
Alchemistic
Polytheistic
