about

A concept album about learning that you are dying only to get a second chance at living but fail because you're not smart enough or strong enough to make change last.

OR

If you knew when you would die could you be strong enough to try and make your life mean something?

OR

Giggle Party poses the question: If we are all going to die why don't we start living our lives now.

Plus it sounds like a party.

about

Giggle Party San Francisco, California

Giggle Party was formed in Dallas, Texas and after garnering a dedicated cult following for their raucous live performances and feel-good, borderline absurdest breed of pop-punk, they have relocated to San Francisco.
Giggle Party think of themselves as a musical extension of the Lowbrow and Pop Surrealist movements; believing that making music doesn’t require you to be serious.

Track Name: Big Bang
So you should think the big bang,
Except it was a phone that rang...
You’d better get checked,
‘Oh, God! My Head!’
It’s wrecked! It’s wrecked.
Dial up the hospital, this is not coincidental. (x2)
Smile! This could be it. (x2)
A soft pretty thing with a soft pretty voice let loose and said,
“I’m the quiet killer and I’ll party in your veins.”
Wake up! It’s late.
A new dawn’s arrived and you’re out wrecking lives.
The calls are collect it doesn’t mean that I’ll accept.
Doctor, nurse, order, order! (x7)
A soft pretty thing with a soft pretty voice let loose and said,
U-G-L-Y T-H-I-N-G, N-G
A soft pretty thing with a soft pretty voice let loose and said,
Pump up the keyboards,
We’re rockin’ the seaboards.
Plug in the guitars,
No time for sub-par,
We’ve got one last hymn,
Oh! It’s gonna be a good win!
To the right, to the right! To the left we dance for fun!
To the right to the right! To the left it’s all for fun.
To the right, to the right! To the left we dance for fun!
To the right, to the right! To the left and now we’re done.

Track Name: Dance To The Radio
I was born in the night.
I was born in the day!
I was born in the true setting sun, I was born either way!
True fear is in the night.
True fear is in the day.
I died in the true setting sun, I died either way,
a eee a eee aaaaa
These arms are made for reaching,
These lungs are made for screaming,
These arms are made for reaching,
These lungs are made for prreaming
AMEN! (x4)
Lights out! Dancing to the radio (x4)

I ain’t got no soul! (x4)

Get your finger wet before you take your last breath!
Dip it in some barbecue, there ain’t no sauce in death.
Shake your thunder dome (x2) Spin it like a globe and shake your thunder dome.
Shake your thunder dome (x2) Spin it ‘round like a globe and shake your thunder dome.
Shake your thunder dome when you’re dancing in the club!
Spin it round like a globe, when you’re making love!
Shake your thunder dome when you wanna get down.
Spin it like a globe and wear it like a crown!
Shake your thunder dome when your body feels the beat!
Spin it like a globe when your sex is in heat.
Shake your thunder dome when you’re making them eyes.
Spin it like a globe and shake your thunder thighs.
Get your finger wet (OH!) {x4}
Track Name: Champions Of Life
We climb all of these mountains, every single day.
Day! day.
We hear all of the trumpets calling out our name.
Name! name.
And we don’t plan on messing around.
Get up on stage, now it’s time to get down.
Won’t waste my days chasing the dream.
There’s thunder in these souls and it’s making a scene.
We wear shades in the sun when we’re dancing in the rain.
Rain! rain.
We ride to work every morning on the soul train.
Train! train.
And we don’t plan on messing around.
Get up on stage, now it’s time to get down.
Won’t waste my days chasing the dream.
There’s thunder in these souls and it’s making a scene.
Alright!
I think I’ve got the fever I’m gonna die! (x8)

We’re not all God-fearing folk.

I hope for me
I am wrong.
I am wrong...
I’ve learned to live! I’ll learn to die! (x2)
Learn to die...
Ooooo. Aaaaah.
I hope for fireworks and the smell of gun smoke
to fill the air.
I hope the joke is that in the end
we all hear...

We’re all gonna die! (x2)
yeah, in the end... we’re all gonna die!
Track Name: Dance 'til You Die
We wake up every morning

Love’s gonna die (One day!) We’ll Party in the club and laugh every night... (One day! (x2)
Wake up every night with a bottle in my hand.
Body is bruised and my blood is like sand.
The reaper is a rippin’, I think I hear a knock.

Love’s gonna die (One day!) We’ll party in the club and laugh every night... (One day!) (x2)
Oh, I know... these feelings will fade away... (x4)

Track Name: Captain Of Me
All of these roads, they all connect us.
All of these roads will lead us home.
All of these roads are breaking my soul.
All of these roads are etched in my bones!
Welcome aboard my tiny boat,
She ain’t got no rudder, but at least she still floats.
I sailed 80 years in these Midwestern seas...
When I was the captain of me!
All of these roads, they all connect us.
All of these roads will lead us home.
All of these roads are breaking my soul.
All of these roads are etched in my bones!
I once caught a crappy that weighed 80 pounds,
In the middle of the winter with no one around.
She was such a beauty, I set her straight free...
When I was the captain of me!
All of these roads, they all connect us.
All of these roads will lead us home.
All of these roads are breaking my soul.
All of these roads are etched in my bones!
You see me sitting, well I see you too.
You say my name, but I don’t know you.
Up in my head my wit still has teeth.
I’m the admiral of a fleet! And the captain of me.
So drink, mother fucker, drink, mother fucker, drink, mother fucker, drink.
And sink, mother fucker, sink, mother fucker, sink, mother fucker, sink. {x2}
And I am the captain of me!
Track Name: Let The Salt
We’ve been dying, not as saviors.
Just as martyrs, crashing our cars into the sea.
You can hear us sink...
Sink, sink, sink...
We’re down here,
We’re under the sea
And everything
is beautiful.
We’re down here,
And we’re under the sea...
and everything is still.
The lights grow
The deeper we sink.
The radio plays God’s voice as a wave.
The lights grow
Take off my coat
Forgot the rent’s due today...
Let the salt strip the paint.
Let the salt eat the rust away.
Let the salt burn my skin.
Let the salt preserve this heart.
Hang my arms out to the side.
Everything moves with life.
Hang my arms in the dark,
The sound of waves breaks!
Down here, under the sea,
All these colors are beautiful!
Down here, under the sea,
Everything is still!
Let the salt strip the paint.
Let the salt eat the rust away.
Let the salt burn my skin.
Let the salt preserve this heart.
And
I can breath, (x7)
Let the salt strip the paint.
Let the salt eat the rust away.
Let the salt burn my skin.
Let the salt preserve this heart. {x2}
Let the salt! (x8)
Track Name: Dead Men Don't Have Dance Moves
We are the giggle. We are the party. We are the deadly beat you’re feeling in your body (x4)
I’ve got a motorcycle, it goes (VROOM!)
Cruisin’ down the calle, listen to it (BOOM!)
I’m not a hipster, Kat, on a little scooter...
I go fuckin’ fast in my fuckin’ polluter
Just remember dead men don’t have dance moves (x2)
My mind’s a loco-loco motion machine (choo-choo)
Swimming like a shark in the deep blue sea (choo-choo)
If you stall on these dance tracks the ripper’s gonna get ya (choo-choo)
And when you’re dead you know I can’t dance with ya
Just remember dead men don’t have dance moves (x2)
And I just can’t shake the feelin’ (x3)
Basement floor to ceilin’, I just can’t shake the feelin (x2)
That when I’m dead they’ll party in the streets
Raining streamers and cupcakes on behalf of me.
And the zombies (oh the zombies) they’ll rise up from the graves,
And they’ll do the fuckin’ moonwalk in my fuckin’ parade.
Just remember dead men don’t have dance moves (x2)
Everybody do the zombie! (GAAHHGGLGLGLHGLGH)
Go to the cupboard, pull out the knives.
Guns are no good zombies aren’t alive
Put on my cardigan, on second thought,
No blood on this one, take it back off.
Put on my hoodie and I pull the strings tight.
It’s deadly outside and it’s cold tonight.
Out the door don’t let fear stop ya.
It’s the dead in the night, you know we gotta
Move! Move! Move to stay alive (x2)
(When I’m dead, they’ll party in the streets) (x2)
We are the giggle. We are the party. We are the deadly beat you’re feeling in your body (x2)
Body.
Track Name: You Must Hit The Ghost Siren To Get To The End
We’ll come when you’re done and we’ll see if you were satisfied
With love. Was it fun? Did you live enough before you died?
(The ghost siren wails)
Before you died?
Release! Come with me. Were you kind? Oh, I hope you tried.
You’ll see what I mean. Now welcome to the other side.
(The ghost siren wails again)
Welcome to the other side.
Zombies fighting. Now they’re biting. Can you feel the end is nearing?
Is that you, God? I’m covered in blood. I think I hear You, are You cheering?
The dead are slashing, lights are flashing. Will I find life everlasting?
My skin is turning. My cuts are burning. I believe, I believe in you not me.
