"If You Didn't See Me (Then You Weren't On The Dancefloor)" as written by and Joshua Epstein Daniel Zott....
You're suppose, to surrender to the bass
You're suppose, to blend into this space
You're suppose, to stay just long enough
To be found, you're not there for the noise
The noise,

You're not scared of the voice, it's just noise
I swear if you didn't see me, you weren't on the dance floor
You should know by now,
I'm just gonna keep on moving on
I'm just gonna keep on, on the dance floor
You should know by now,
I'm just gonna keep on moving on
I'm just gonna keep on, on the dance floor

You're suppose, to roll your hips in time, you're suppose
To see your age rewind
You're suppose, to pull me like the sun
Pulls the earth, but you're not there for the noise
The noise

You're not scared of the voice, it's just noise
I swear if you didn't see me, you weren't on the dance floor
You should know by now,
I'm just gonna keep on moving on
I'm just gonna keep on, on the dance floor
You should know by now,
I'm just gonna keep on moving on
I'm just gonna keep on, on the dance floor.

    General CommentAccording to the commentary on their EP, this song is about people who try to set rules and impose guidelines for things that are supposed to be spontaneous and fun. They wanted to push back against that and kind of shrug and say, oh well, we're going to let loose and enjoy ourselves, because that's what dancing is all about!

    However, as someone who tends to be sort of shy and inhibited in public, I imagine the other side as not someone trying to set rules and ruin someone else's fun, but just as someone who's self-conscious. Maybe they say, oh yeah, I was at that club...but they don't remember seeing the singer dancing, so really it's a bluff because they weren't part of the action at all. They probably spent the evening on the sidelines, in the bathroom, or swaying awkwardly in the shadows. Hopefully someday they'll be able to actually participate without being scared, as the lyrics mention, or feeling like everyone is watching / judging them.
