"Party" as written by Dexter Mills, Andre N Benjamin, Jeffrey ...
I'm talking to the mirror again but it's not listening
I'm cleaning my dirty mind like a toilet but it won't give in
I'm drinking spirits in the hopes that I will find myself one
But all I can rectify is that the party's just begun

[Chorus:]
Party's just begun
Party's just begun
Party's just begun
Party's just begun

I feel like falling asleep and never waking up
It's not that my glass is empty but I need another cup
When all of the doors around me just shut one by one
I feel like falling asleep but the party's just begun

[Chorus]
Shaky shaky steps in the middle of the day
A fire in my path and a cool decay
Of limbs and tooth under my skin
Oh, freedom, where do I begin
I'm changing my inflection and how I say the words
Maybe it will sound like something they've never heard
Oh, death of the party
I picked up the chalice of malice
And drank till I was full, I drank till I was full
I was thirsty but I drank till I was full,
I drank till I, till I,till I was full

There's a fever in my bones that I know so well
I keep my head low low low to avoid the swell
But it'll be cold in hell, it'll be cold in hell
Before they put me in that chamber
So I'm cleaning up as fast as I can
I'm cleaning up as fast as I can
'cause you can't unbreak what you break, you can't unfake the very fake
You cannot fuel without a tank,
no you can't unbreak what you break, what you break

[Chorus x 2]

    General Commentthis song has a special rhythm, I think that is a mixture of Latin Jazz with a little Blues, the voice of Nelly remains perfect and the adaptation to the soundtrack of Brokedown Palace was a wise decision therefore the sounds evoke to the environment suroriental

    General Comment"I'm drinking spirits in the hopes that I will find myself one." That is one of my top five all-time favorite song lyrics.

    General CommentFor the life of me, I can not understand the meaning of this song, but I love it so much. Reading the lyrics, it seems to have a really depressing and sad undertone to it, which is ironic since the beat is so fun and smooth...leave it to Nelly to pull off a stunt like that and make it look good!!
