Automatic action
Follow my reflection
I see myself in watching you
Lock into a vision, rising through the rhythm

Trance until the dance is through
Don't let emotion go the flow is all we know
And baby, we're doing it all the way
A step into the night or move into the light

Lately, we're going through the motions

How can we improve it
Ooh, you match my movement
Cryptic choreography
Jump up come down together, no one does it better

Electric eccentricity
No, I don't wanna know how far we're gonna go
But baby, we're doing it all the way
A step into the light a move into the night
