"It's All Gonna Break" as written by and Kevin Drew Justin Peroff....
It's all gonna break
When I was a kid, you fucked me in the ass
But I took my pen to paper and I passed
You know I love the shit, 'cause the shit it tastes so good
I got pastures waiting in the woods
'Cause it's all gonna break
It's all gonna break
Treat me like a sign, sounds like so, oh well
I know times like these are the hell
And when you do the tricks, the tricks look so good
I got buried rumors waiting in the woods
And they try to climb awake
And call me over
Skies they rape and skies are sober
Minds they fake and minds rolled over
It's good, it's good, it's good

I know that you're dying
I know that it's true
I know there's seven thousand things you rather be and rather do
And I know that you fuck what you love
And you love what you fuck

I'll keep them out girl, I'll keep it true
I'll do anything inside the skin of you
'Cause I know that the sound of your heart
Is a god I can trust
Like a man
Not a boy
I don't love, I just fight with the violence in ourselves
It's all gonna break
And you all want the lovely music to save your lives
And you all want the lovely music to save your lives
Keep it coming
There is no lie to save your life
Keep it coming
This is the lie to save your life
Why are you always fucking ghosts?
Why are you always fucking ghosts?
Why?
It's been such a long
Life that we trust
Your heart is a whore
And love is just lust
You want what you can't
And you can't cause of fear
We've got to get
Out of here
Why are you always?
Its been and it settles down and fights to love
Its all gonna break

    General CommentI created an account for the sole purpose of responding to this song because there is a big piece of the puzzle that I think a lot of people are missing here.

    To understand this song you need to know a little bit about the history of BSS, I highly recommend reading "This Book is Broken: A Broken Social Scene Story" by Stuart Berman. In short, at the time that the self-titled album was recorded, BSS was on the brink of imploding. Kevin Drew's marriage was failing (which brought us the song Superconnected), the band had been on tour for almost three years straight, and various romantic relationships in the collective were straining the very friendships the band revolved around (read: Feist was hooking up with Kevin despite her long on-again-off-again relationship with Andrew Whiteman). The recording process for this record was also significantly more stressful than it was for You Forgot it in People, due to heightened expectations and fragmentation as a result of the many subsidiary bands within BSS going on tour for themselves. The band was literally about to break.

    In light of this, I feel confident asserting that It's All Gonna Break is *most likely* a collective expression of the myriad emotions that were straining the band at the time: perhaps frustration, betrayal, confusion, jealousy, anger, and fear. I can imagine the feeling of hopelessness, like watching your own family crumble around you and threatening to disappear at any moment. It's no wonder that, as tylerjb72 posted, Kevin found this song therapeutic. It's far more constructive to put those emotions into an epic work of art than it is to let them fester and turn into bitterness.

    The lyrics are gritty, explicit, and evocative of many terrible feelings, but they need to be. This song would not be what it is without the disturbing imagery. It is a vivid snapshot into the mindset of BSS at their darkest moment.

    treat me like a sign, sounds like so/oh well
    i know times like these are the hell
    and when you do the tricks, the tricks look so good
    i got buried rumors waiting in the woods,
    and they try to climb awake
    and call me over,
    skies they rape and skies are sober.
    minds they fake and minds rolled over
    it's good, it's good, it's good.

    i know your dying

    i know theirs seven thousand things you rather be and rather do,
    and i know........that you fuck what you love
    and you love what you fuck.

    i'll keep them out girl, i'll keep it true
    i'll do anything inside the skin of you
    cause i know that the sound of your heart
    is a god i can trust,

    its all gonna break.

    General CommentI just listened to this song (the version on "Broken Social Scene" while my 4-year-old was pushing the buttons on a Dora the Explorer van (French version) and the resulting melodic combination took me out into the most sublime level of ecstaspace! I highly recommend you try this.

    General CommentYeah it's a pretty fucked up song, but I don't care if anyone hears me listening to it, because most of the people I know have, shitty taste in music anyways and don't pay attention to the lyrics in my music. Haha.

    General Commentare you kidding? the lyrics aren't disgusting; it's real and its raw and theres so much passion dripping from the words it's insane. i like how broken social scene has beautiful music but doesn't paint a picture portrait in all their lyrics because life really never roles that way.
