Party Of The First Part.



An Original Dark Poetry piece about selling your soul to the Devil in exchange for 20 years of success in the music industry. Then he comes to collect!

Partially inspired by the Bauhaus track of the same name.


The party of the first part

A deal you sealed with blood

20 years of riches, fame

Sex, drugs and limelight

But it turns out the same

Play your sweet soul music

Then there’s a price to pay

It’s your sweet soul sister

When comes your dying day

Didn’t anyone ever tell you

You gotta’ pay to play?

Now every night’s a party

Fan’s adoration at your door

Charlie White in every corner

Wild whores upon the floor

Play your sweet soul music

Soon there’s a price to pay

It’s your sweet soul sister

‘Cos it turns out the same

20 years flew by so fast

The glitz and gigs are gone

Left lonely in a hotel room

All dancehall days are done

Played your sweet soul music

Now there’s a price to pay

It’s your sweet soul sister

You gotta’ pay to play

The party of the second part

Appears to claim his prize

Now it’s time to pay the price

Your black soul’s on his mind

And it all turned out the same

Didn’t anyone ever tell you

You gotta’ pay to play?
