"After the Disco" as written by and Brian Burton James Mercer....
After your faith has let you down
I know you'll want to run around
And follow the crowd into the night
But after the disco
All of the shine just faded away
Oh oh oh oh
Do what you want
Do what you will
Don't tell me it's not our time

'Cause I'm
Waiting here much too long and
Don't assume
That I need your love
The chill of night has got you dancing away
And I'm
Not the dreamer or the dream you're
Out there looking for

How did I get in this winding maze of love?
And there's something wrong and it's sending you
Round and round 'til we go nowhere

I see the ashes on the ground
I know the world is burning down
And under the cold and empty moon
But after the disco
All of the shine just faded away
Oh oh oh oh
Do what you want
Do what you will
But you can't hide
Oh oh oh oh
Do what you want
Do what you will
Don't tell me it's not our time

'Cause I'm
Waiting here much too long and
Don't assume
That I need your love
The chill of night has got you dancing away
And I'm
Not the dreamer or the dream you're
Out there looking for

How did I get in this winding maze of love?
And there's something wrong and it's sending you
Round and round 'til we go nowhere

    My InterpretationPartying to drown ones sorrows is just a facade, a mirage, a worthless time expense which does no work towards solving the problems and challenges we trying to run away from.

    And what challenges? "How did I get in this winding maze of love? And there's something wrong and it's sending you Round and round 'til we go nowhere"often loneliness and rejection in love, which pushes us humans to wreckless behaviour as symbolised by their hunger and hunt for love (the maze) that finds them hopping from one stranger to the next with no true resolve. Coz after the disco (the fun, the sex)... all of the shine (temporary state of contentment) just fades away, coz it isnt real. This stranger is not a dreamer, nor e dream youre looking for, but rather another wrong turn in the maze they are going round and round in

    So I'd say its a warning, a piece of advice that, perchance, perhaps, "disco"-ing your way through life aint the solution
