"Major Label Debut" as written by and Charles Ivan Jay Spearin David Andrew Patrick Whiteman....
I'm just comin' here to come down
I could be here
I could move town

Put my suits right on the guest list
Saw my pa's boy
Became weightless

And I'm all hooked up

Drippy street caught me believin'
Spilt their eyes on
All the ceilings

Forced to live like it's a curfew
Translation
It means I love you

And I'm all hooked up

I'm just comin' here to come down
I could be here
I could move town

Forced to live like it's a curfew
Translation
It means I love you

And I'm all hooked up

    General CommentI can't decide what he says in the second part with the guestllist. The "they can wing this" line sounds like he's saying "became weightless".

    I love the song so much, especially the fast version.

    General Commentbasically that whole stanza or whatever i believe is:

    put masseuse right on the guestlist
    sign my passport
    become weightless

    and i'm all fucked up

    General CommentThese lyrics are whatever you make them. We'll never know for certain what they are, and that is the way Broken Social Scene intended it. Make the lyrics whatever feels right to you. Just listen to the music. Understand it. Believe in it.

    General Commentif you listen to the normal (slow) version of this song, you can clearly here it is "I'm all hooked up." I used to think it said "I'm all coked up" when I would listen to the Fast version. Can't be "fucked" because you never hear the "fuh", but a "huh." I can hear "I'm on the town" as well, but I don't think whoever was singing in this song mumbles his words that much... unless that was the intention. Who knows? Living the big city life can many times coincide with drug usage (esp. cocaine). Therefore, all of these could fit in. Which, in that case, leads me to believe this song is about drug consumption (maybe addiction, but I don't see any metaphors alluding to dependence, just usage). However, I suck at interpreting lyrics... and I could be completely off. I'm really just basing it on "I'm all hooked up" and "I'm just coming coming here to come down." Of course, there could always be symbolism behind that. Words can be translated, interpreted and understood as many ways as there are people who read them.
