Dead men,
They celebrate
As the final chapter
Fades away
'Cause they can't hide
We can see their flesh is rotten!

The band plays a hopeful tune
The champagne is poured
As they socialise
The look in their eyes
Hide in the light!

Everything is paid for tonight
While at the party of the
Dead dancing in their graves
The drinks here are free
So relax
Enjoy the sight of all the
Dead dancing in their graves.
And while the world that they built
Told 'em to change
Told 'em to listen
They just kept it the same,
And now that midnight has come
I'm in a room watching the
Dead dancing in their graves.

Bones covered up by suits
As the visible scars,
They multiply
Kiss it good-bye
Too stubborn and I will destroy!

Tick, tock
The time bomb has been
Recognized been pressurized
Nowhere to hide
Swallowing light!

Everything is paid for tonight
While at the party of the
Dead dancing in their graves.
The drinks here are free
So relax
Enjoy the sight of all the
Dead dancing in their graves,
And while the world that they built
Told 'em to change
Told 'em to listen
They just kept it the same.
And now that midnight has come
I'm in a room watching the
Dead dancing in their graves

Feel a coming strength
And now it's too late
To change.

Everything is paid for tonight
While at the party of the
Dead dancing in their graves
The drinks here are free
So relax
Enjoy the sight of all the
Dead dancing in their graves
And while the world that they built
Told 'em to change
Told 'em to listen
They just kept it the same
And now that midnight has come
I'm in a room watching the
Dead dancing in their graves

    Caleb24 although I respect your interpretation of the song I think it has greater implications then just partying all the time. I think it's a statement on political ignorance and stubbornness towards the idea of global warming and climate change. "midnight" is often a symbol for apocalypse and men in "suits" are politicians who are refusing to listen to the world around then telling them something needs to change before the ticking "timebomb" goes off.

    Oh one thing I just realized I forgot to mention in that is this. The people in the song who are so caught up in what they're doing don't realize what's happening as a consequence.
    But everyone who knows them does see it. This also goes along the lines of the situation I mentioned about people who party everyday and do nothing else. Most of them don't realize how they're changing. But their friends and family do. And they may even warn them, but most people rarely listen. And yeah, once again ignorance comes to mind.
