"Casual Party" as written by and Ryan Monroe Ben Bridwell....
Talking television at the casual party
Here's some brand new friends to get you started off
So start it off

Since Ben got that he's a sociopath
He's only playing games don't be distracted, oh
It's all or nothing, all or nothing
So you really got something to lose

It's coming around as it did before
It's gettin' your attention but where's the door? Woah
I can't locate it, where's it located?
I got plenty to live for

Blind faith, it don't sit right
You got rage wound so tight
I wanna leave
Best get out of the way
Blind faith don't sit right
You're full of rage wound so tight
I'm gonna leave
Best get out of the way

Awful conversation at the casual party
The job, the babble on, the recreational hobbies, oh
No it never stops

Kids and the dog, a freshly-mowed lawn
Retirement plans for a mountain home, oh
Been arrested, lived in Texas
My God I'm gonna leave it with you

Blind faith don't sit right
You got rage wound so tight
I better leave
Best get out of the way
Blind faith don't sit right
You're full of rage wound so tight
I'm gonna leave
Best get out of the way

Talking conversation at the casual party
Awful television don't get you started, oh
No it never stops
Children and dogs and manicured lawns
All your future plans, vacation homes
I wanna go
Home

It's so stupid
Everything's about you man
Hey!
Hey what's up? (that's Steve)

    General CommentI basically think this is a complicated story about something simple: being fake. Someone using someone else, someone being blinded by ideas of a perfect life. The lyrics sound like the words of a person pointing out that it’s all fake. “He’s only playing games don’t be distracted.” And when he isn’t listened to, he leaves.

    For me, I like relating songs to my own life. When I really like the sound of a song, I do some research on the lyrics and try to study what they could possibly mean to the songwriter. Then I try to find out what they mean for me personally so I can use that song to mean something positive in my own life. I think this song is about not letting your self be blinded by others. I usually take an idea like that and transform it into something else. “Not being blinded by others”... that can also mean not letting your opinion get trampled. Stick with what you believe in. Leave if you have to. Just don’t stop loving what you love.

    So there it is, my personal meaning: Don’t stop loving what you love.

    And that my friends is how you turn confusing song lyrics into something meaningful for yourself.
