There is this party, they say I should come by I'm bad with strangers, but I may give it a try Sittin' in the corner, and I'm feeling kinda shy I see someone, but I'm afraid to catch their eye And in my mind We'll have a nice time Drinking fine wine Then somebody yelled "Wake up and smell the moonshine" And the lights got dimmer and began to flicker Then they broke out the party liquor When the moment came, I didn't have to trick her She just threw back that party liquor This shit gets crazier with every passing hour I should slow down, but I don't seem to have the power I'm mixing everything including grape and grain I'm thinkin' thoughts that I should never entertain And in my brain We are so urbane Oysters and champagne Then somebody yelled "Wake up, you must be insane" Then the loud mouths lose it, and they began to bicker Over who holds their party liquor And we all find out just who can get sicker quicker When they break out the party liquor While the trash piles higher, and the floor gets slicker 'Cause they spill so much party liquor And the TV's blaring 'cause they can't find the clicker Things get so lost on party liquor (Put your hands in the air) And the noise grows louder, and the plot gets thicker As they run out of party liquor Then I look right at her and begin to snicker Things get so strange in party liquor 'Cause if I was sober I would never pick her You do weird things on party liquor And the rude boys line up to get in her knickers When she's face down on party liquor So everybody sing It's party liquor time!
"It's kind of inspired by the dark side. Ostensibly, it's about fun, but then things all go to hell during the course of this encounter. The song is probably going to find its ultimate realization in the live context, because when people get into a song like this, there's no telling where I can take it! It's a fairly easy dance setup: the ol' four-on-the-floor bass, with most of the sound coming from the keyboard. There's a bit of a sequenced bass line, too. While it sounds like a lot of playing, there's really very of it — I'm using a synthesizer that has its own built-in step sequencer. So all I have to do is hold down the roots, and it sounds like this whole part is being played. That's really what's happening nowadays — trying to figure out how to turn all the drudgery over to machines so you can have the freedom to do crazy things with the end product."
