"After Every Party I Die" as written by Chris Corner, Liam Coverdale-howe and Ian Pickering....
You're living but you've got no soul
You captivate but you hold no weight at all
So watch as I start to smile

You're duller than you think you're deep
You aggravate but you always start to speak
So watch as I start to smile

After every party I die
After every party I die

The morning breaks us up inside
Payback, execution, killing time
So watch as I start to smile

There's something that you think you need
Trying your best to sleep at cocaine speed
So watch as I start to smile

After every party I die
(Die after every party)
After every party I die
(Die after every party)

You're living but you've got no soul
You captivate but you hold no weight at all
So watch as I start to smile

Smile, smile, smile, smile
Smile, smile, smile, smile
Smile, smile, smile, smile

After every party I die
(Die after every party)
After every party I die
(Die after every party)

After every party I die
(I die after every party)
After every party I die
(I die after every party)

I die after every party
I die after every party

    General CommentMy interpretation is more to do with the life he's living itself being more hollow and pointless than feeling hollow afterwards because of the drugs.

    More to the fact he does it all the time and it itself is pointless, doing the same thing again and again, drugs and then pulling and he knows its all a farce but can't seem to stop.

    General CommentThe title says it all.

    People who go to parties just to die after - both mentally and phisicaly. and then they just go to another party. kind of real addict
    "The morning breaks us up inside
    Payback, execution, killing time
    So watch as I start to smile" - they really want to escape from their everyday troubles, that's why they search embrace in all of those mess like Coke and Speed.

    General Commentyes, i agree with you. they're living to party, and when theyre not partying, its all empty, you stop being that person and youre out of your depth.

    General CommentIt's what happens when you come down from a night of dancing and MDMA.

    I mean, he calls himself "I am X" and was in the sneaker pimps. I'm saying this with the utmost respect and adoration, of course.

    But yeah, it's a song about a come down.

    General Commentyou're all wrong

    You're living but you've got no soul
    You captivate but you hold no weight at all
    after every party I smile

    You're duller than you think you're deep
    You aggravate but you always start to speak
    after every party I smile

    - he smiles a "polite" smile at these beautiful shallow cokeheads

    after every party i die (LAUGHING)

    The morning breaks us up inside
    Payback, execution, killing time

    - because they get what they deserve

    General Commentlet me emphasize even more

    YOU're living but you've got no soul
    YOU captivate but you hold no weight at all
    after every party I smile

    YOU're duller than you think you're deep
    YOU aggravate but you always start to speak
    after every party I smile

    - he smiles a "polite" smile at these beautiful shallow cokeheads (yes i know we don't find out their cokeheads till later)

    after every party I die (LAUGHING)

    The morning breaks us up inside
    Payback, execution, killing time

    - because they get what they deserve

    General CommentPerhaps, this is simply about having a hangover, cause I recently experienced that for the first time, and I kind of felt like I was dying.

    My InterpretationI feel Misalignedstars has the correct point.

    I feel like he's observing, not really interacting too much at parties. Watching everyone do drugs, and trying to fill up their hollow shell. He's smiling at it, kind of like its funny. Not a laughing type of funny, but a sad funny. He's watching people throw themselves away.
    "There's something that you think you need
    Trying your best to sleep at cocaine speed
    So watch as i start to smile"
    Here I feel he's saying, You dont really need the drugs but you think you do, so good luck with yourself, have fun screwing yourselves up.

    He dies after every party, I personally take this as an introvert sort of thing, like...the events are too wild and crazy and he needs to recover but that my own little idea, Also it could be out of sympathy for the others, all the stress of watching them hurt themselves. Or perhaps its just the fact that parties in general are so emotionally and physically draining
