Steven Curtis Chapman-Dancing With the Dinosaur w/lyrics

Once upon a time, not so long ago
In a land not so far away
Right and wrong were not quite so hard to know
And black and white were not so gray

Times have changed and now it seems
Conscience has gone the way of the dinosaur
But I believe it's still alive and well today
In the hearts of those who will stand up and say

I'm dancing with the dinosaur
Living my life with conscience and conviction
I don't want to see the truth ignored
So I've gotta keep on dancing
I've gotta keep on dancing with the dinosaur

Gonna dance with the dinosaur

There's a banner waving saying tolerance will set you free
It's the latest thing
While the consequences it leaves behind
Are like a ball and chain

But there's a voice in everyone called conscience
That's been around since God created man
And as we learn to listen to its whispering
We'll find the greatest freedom when we stand up and sing

Baby, I'm dancing with the dinosaur
Living my life with conscience and conviction
I don't want to see the truth ignored
So I've gotta keep on dancing
You gotta keep on dancing with the dinosaur

Right is right and wrong is wrong just like it has been all along
We cannot sit by and see conscience become history
So come on, get up and dance
Dance this dance with me

Gonna keep on dancing, gonna keep on dancing with the dinosaur
Gonna keep on dancing, gonna keep on dancing with the dinosaur

I'm dancing with the dinosaur
Living my life with conscience and conviction
I don't want to see the truth ignored
So I've gotta keep on dancing
Oh, we gotta keep on dancing with the dinosaur

I'm dancing with the dinosaur
Living my life with conscience and conviction
I don't want to see the truth ignored
So I've gotta keep on dancing
Oh, we gotta keep on dancing
Oh, we gotta keep on dancing with the dinosaur

Dancing with the dinosaur
Dancing with the dinosaur
Gonna live my life with conscience
Gonna live my life with conviction
Keep on dancing with the dinosaur
Don't want to see the truth ignored
Don't want to see the patch with conviction

Gonna keep on dancing, gonna keep on dancing with the dinosaur
Gonna keep on dancing, gonna keep on dancing with the dinosaur
Gonna keep on dancing, gonna keep on dancing with the dinosaur
Gonna keep on dancing, gonna keep on dancing with the dinosaur
