lyrics

Maniac

Just a still town girl on a saturday night,
lookin' for the fight of her life
In the real-time world no one sees her at all,
they all say she's crazy

Locking rhythms to the beat of her heart,
changing woman into life
She has danced into the danger zone,
when a dancer becomes a dance

It can cut you like a knife, if the gift becomes the fire
On a wire between what will will be

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

On the ice-build iron insanity
is a place most never see
It's a hard warm place of misery,
touch it, but can't hold it
You can work all your life for that moment in time,
it could come or it can pass you by
It's a push of the world, but there's always a chance
If the hunger stays the night

There's a cold connective heat,
struggling, stretching for defeat
Never stopping, heads against the wind

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
She's a maniac that's for sure
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
And she's dancing like she's never danced before

(Solo)

It can cut you like a knife, if the gift becomes the fire
On a wire between what will will be

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
She's a maniac that's for sure
And she's dancing like she's never danced before
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
Yeah she's dancing like she's never danced before

She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
She's a maniac, maniac on the floor
