Try it. It's nice, I swear.

Okay. But only if you have pretzels

Is world peace found out of our minds?  I look at politicians and sort of thought it was exactly the opposite.  I don't know about the world peace part.  Maybe it you changed it to Nirvana or something?  This sounds like an out of body thing so it would not have much to do with the world.

Sorry, am I being too analytical?

L7-9 is "telling" at its best.  Omit, or show me.
You're title is misleading in a frustrating way.  I associate dancing with everything..that is not this.  :\ retitle?

Typos and too many words ruin a hippy's decent message:

when i was younger
that i am now, i decided
i needed fresh air, and so i stepped
outside of my mind: i invite you
to join me in euphoria, outside  my head,
in a world of peace.
