originally recorded by Onward Chariots for the "This is My Confession" album, this is a complete rearrangement of the song.


The kick drum is beating right into my brain.
The singer is bleating a silly refrain.
I thought I'd be meeting that girl from the train,
But the hook is repeating again and again.
The club is full of vampires. The music's too damn loud.
I need to get myself out of this crowd.

Get me out of this party.
I don't know how to dance here.

What happened to dancing and sensitive speech
And courtly romancing and nights on the beach?
Of fine conversation and dinner for two,
The art of flirtation and love that is true?
We jerk around like robots. We're atoms on the floor.
We've turned into the people we'd ignore.

Get me out of this party.
I don't know how to dance here.
