"Stomach Song" as written by and Brendan Canning Kevin Drew....
Some boys I know
They speak with broken mouths
I have to sit inside their stomachs
To find out what they're really about

But not like the days
When the sky is blue
And all that I had
Is a little of me in a little of you

Some girls I know
They speak with broken mouths
I have to sit within their stomachs
To find out what they're all about

'Cause nowadays
All people want are pills
To help them learn to talk
To help them learn to feel
And they can't be their eyes
Several times I've seen them try
No, they can't be their lives

Some boys I know
They speak with broken mouths
I have to sit inside their stomachs
To find out what they're really about

    Lyric CorrectionSome boys I know
    They speak with broken mouths
    I have to sit inside their stomachs
    To find out what they're really about

    But not like the days
    When the sky is blue
    And all that I had
    Was a little of me and a little of you

    Some girls I know
    They speak with broken mouths
    I have to sit within their stomachs
    To find out what they're really all about

    Cause now a'days
    All people want are pills
    To help them learn to talk
    To help them learn to feel

    But they can't be their eyes
    Several times I've seen them try
    They know, they cant be their eyes

    Some boys I know
    They speak with broken mouths
    I have to sit inside their stomachs
    To find out what they're really about

    General CommentThe lyrics of this song are so faint that I really don't pay attention to them. I just love the music. Great song though still.

    General CommentAt a BSS concert in Toronto last week (Jan 21st, 06), Kevin Drew explained that the man "lyrics" were spoken by his "Grandpa" (actually his Grandmother's boyfriend) who recently died. I can't remember his name now (Ed i think), but it was pretty touching and he dedicated a song to him.

    Anyways, I can't say I've ever thought about the words to this song very much. I don't listen to Feel Good Lost for the lyrics (obviously).

    General Commenti think this is my favorite broken social scene song. they layer words in their music so beautiful, and this song just exemplifies that beauty so well with the singers having an unusual tone in their voices. a very relatable song, too.

    General CommentFirst of all I have a few corrections:

    It should be "All people want are pills," not "all people want to confuse."
    And also, replace "not to talk" and "not to feel" with "LEARN to talk" and "LEARN to feel."

    Now, In case somebody is confused by this song's meaning, I'll post what I think it's about:

    The elderly singers are reflecting on how this generation relies on drugs more than anything else.
    They are saying how back in their day, life was just about the good times that people had with each other.
