Killer Parties is the tenth and final track from Almost Killed Me. It is 5:48.

LyricsEdit

If they ask about Charlemagne, just be polite and say something vague. Like another lover lost to the restaurant raids. If they ask why we left in the first place, say we were young, and we were so in love, i guess we just needed space. We heard about this place, they called the United States.

We found out Virginia really is for the lovers. Philly's full of friendly friends that will love you like a brother. Pensacola parties hard, with poppers pills and pepsi. Ybor City is tres speedy, but they throw such killer parties. Killer parties almost killed me.

If she says we partied, then I'm pretty sure we partied. I really don't remember. I remember we departed from our bodies. We woke up in Ybor City.

If she says we partied, then I'm pretty sure we partied. I really don't remember. I remember we departed from our bodies. We woke up in Ybor City.

If she says we partied, then I'm pretty sure we partied. I really don't remember. I remember we departed from our bodies. We woke up in Ybor City.

AnalysisEdit

This is someone - maybe Gideon - telling Holly what to say about the trip she takes in "Separation Sunday." It's the fabricated or modified story she later tells in "Don't Let Me Explode,"

Other InfoEdit

  • "Killer Parties" is often played at the end of live shows.
