Cogito Ergo Dance (Descartes Said)

Here’s a straw man fallacy for you in the form of a new song!

Music & Lyrics by Silvan Rus

Yes, I’m a student of philosophy,
Poor as hell with the tendency
To think too much against a fallacy –
Golden years; rusty tears.

In the dark I study by the candlelight
Even though I have a lamp to study by,
‘Cause I’m classical with a little hint of romance
Descartes said, “I think, therefore, I should dance.”

*CHORUS*
How come my feet don’t listen to my head?
I don’t know what to do.
My feet are dislocated from my neck –
I thought I thought it through.
Hold me by my hips,
Guide my petty steps.
Hold me by my hips,
Guide my petty steps.
I should’ve taken more dance electives;
Golden years, rusty tears.

I’m dancing in the club like Peter Garrett,
I still don’t know where my feet begin.

Here in the shadow of my stupid apathy
Wanting more, but doing nothing.
‘Cause I contemplate with a little hint of vanity
Descartes said, “I think, therefore, I should am.”

*CHORUS*

Now I’m alone in this dome I call my throne,
Deep in the night with my dear friend, candle, O
Well at least I’m right. My logic tells me that I’m so:
Descartes said, “I think, therefore, I should doubt.

*CHORUS*

*INTERLUDE*
I’m dancing in the club like Peter Garrett
I still don’t know where my feet begin.
