Party Poison

Album: Danger Days: True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys (2010)
  • Everybody pay attention to me
    I got the answer
    I got the answer
    We'll rock it to ya with a capital G
    So get your hands up
    So get your hands up

    Hide your eyes, we're gonna shine tonight
    Sub-atomic never get the best of me
    Ain't a DJ gonna save my soul?
    I sold it long ago for rock 'n roll
    Drop the needle when the tape deck blows
    I gotta shout this out so everybody knows

    This ain't a party
    Get off the dance floor
    You want the get down
    Here comes the gang war

    You're doing alright
    I got the answer
    'Cause all the good times
    They give you cancer

    If we were all like you in the end
    Oh, we'd be killing ourselves by sleeping in
    So hit the lights I'll do it again
    And keep your cars and your dogs
    And your famous friends, well alright

    Slide up the faders when the cabinet slams
    And get your hands up, now get your hands up
    Light up the stage and watch me kick out the jams
    So throw your fist up, now throw your fist up

    Ain't nobody gonna take my life
    Ain't nobody gonna get the best of me
    Ain't a preacher gonna save me now
    Grab a seat, I'm gonna show you how
    Everybody hit the pyro cue
    We're gonna blow this off and show you what we do

    This ain't a party
    Get off the dance floor
    You want the get down
    Here comes the gang war

    You're doing alright
    I got the answer
    'Cause all the good times
    They give you cancer

    If we were all like you in the end
    Well, we'd be killing ourselves by sleeping in
    So hit the lights I'll do it again
    So keep your cars and your dogs
    And your famous friends, well alright
    Well alright, well alright

    Alright
    We came to party, kill the party tonight
    We came to party, kill the party tonight
    Let's go

    This ain't a party
    Get off the dance floor
    You want the get down
    Here comes the gang war

    You're doing alright
    I got the answer
    'Cause all the good times
    Gimme, gimme good times people tonight

    This ain't a party
    Get off the dance floor
    You wanna get down
    Here comes the encore

    If we were all like you in the end
    Oh, we'd be killing ourselves by sleeping in
    So hit the lights I'll do it again

    So everybody get down
    Till the party breaks down (till the party breaks down)
    Now everybody get down (now everybody get down)
    Now everybody get down
    'Til the party breaks down tonight Writer/s: BOB BRYAR, FRANK IERO, GERARD WAY, MICHAEL WAY, RAY TORO
