"The Party Song" as written by Betty Comden, Adolph Green and Jule Styne....
Well I know you like the party, but the party never stops
I know you like the party, but the party never stops
well I know you
I know you
I know you

I know you want to be here so you just let go
and no one?s ever gonna tell you no
but I want to, cause I know you I know you

But you party on, party on
get your party on
get your party on

[Chorus:]
This is my last advice leave with me cause you could die tonight
(I got this, I got this, I got this so go ahead home)
the drugs you used as a place to hide, it?s really bad if you don?t get this right
(I got this, I got this, I got this I don?t need you)

You got kicked out of your mothers house
You stole money from her purse she finally found you out
You should be ashamed, (don't sit there judging me)
what a waste (you'd be the same if you could see, so lets have another drink)

And we'll party on, party on
get your party on
get your party on

[Chorus]

February is still as scary, the month your father died
a little girl in a shrieking world, looking for her place
to run and hide

Well I know you like the party, but the party never stops
I know you like the party, but the party never stops
well I know you
I know you
I know you

But you party on, party on
get your party on
get your party on
give it one last time cause this is all you?ve got!

[Chorus]

    General Commentsell out? sell out?... not with this song at least

    song seems pretty clearly about a girl that has been hurt since the passing of her father and has turned to drugs and alcohol to "cope" and the narrator of the song is trying to be a friend and help her stop this

    General Commentya, it's definitely about a girl cause it says "a little girl in a shrinking world" and ya, it's totally about her trying to deal with her father having died and turning to drugs and alcohol, meanwhile the narrarator is telling her to stop cause "This will end bad if you don't get this right" and "cause you could die tonight." So ya, it's pretty NOT-vague, which I think is weird for Emery, and their sound is more unoriginal I think, but you can still tell it's them and their sick-nasty skills. :)

    General Commentto me this song is about a girl running from her problems in drugs and alchohol but i feel it goes a bit deeper than that. Emery being a christian band. the line "leave with me cause you could die tonight" could have a double meaning. not only could she literally drink herself to death, the more she shrinks and hides in the alchohol the further she slips from God and therefore is spiritually dying as well. as for the sound of this song, it does sound like a different direction for emery because in many of their songs they never had an actual chorus line, however this song goes by the usual song setup of verse, chorus verse, chorus, bridge, reprise, and then chorus again. so in that way yes...it is slightly unoriginal, but at the same time, their sound is in no way unoriginal, they still have the multivocal melodic screamo sound they had back in The Weak's End. the only difference is that it's a bit more refined.

    General CommentOf the three new Emery songs i've heard, this one is my favorite by a long shot, but it also sounds the most like their previous albums. Anyways, great song, great message.

    General CommentIt's "What a waste," not "of the waste." Also, it's "I know you like THE party," not "a party," and the line "You'd be the same if you could see" is actually "you'd be the same if you were me."

    I got this from the actual emery album packaging so I know those are the correct lyrics.

    General CommentI'd also like to mention that this seems to be one of those cases where the CD booklet with the lyrics says one thing, while the band sings something else entirely. Such is the case with the line I quoted above that says "you'd be the same if you were me," which is what the CD booklet says but in the song he definitely sings, "you'd be the same if you could see." Just thought I'd point that out.
