"All My Friends" as written by and Kevin Drew....
All my friends in magazines
Got addicted to the word "leave"
And they all wrote love songs that they believed
Little lies and massive dreams

They all request that you slow down
They all request that you slow down
You've got to turn it around
And make a save

There's a whore inside their bed
The duvets wish that they were still wet
And all the songs they wrote instead
Your ex-lover is not dead

They all request that you slow down
They all request that you slow down
You've got to turn it around
And make a save

All my friends in magazines
Got addicted to the word "leave"
And all the old songs that you believe
Once they stop you can't repeat
You once, you stop you can't repeat

    General Commenti love the simplicity of this song. most BSS songs are full of different instruments and voices while this song just has a light guitar and a light voice.

    i'm not sure what this song is supposed to mean. it sounds like something MY FRIENDS and i would write. maybe the lyrics were meant to swing to anyone and to any prespective. to me it has something that no one else can understand. and to YOU it means something only you can understand.

    General CommentThis is literally about their friends. "In all the songs they wrote instead, your ex-lover is not dead" is a reference to Stars, and "the duvets wish that they were still wet" is a reference to Metric. There are probably other references I'm not picking up on.

    Also, it should be "little lives and massive dreams".

    General Commenti used to think this song was a ballsy beg from broken social scene for all their friends to slow the hell down with getting big, with the stars & metric references after all. mostly because i thought the line was "may i request that you slow down?" either way, it's still an amazing tune, rivaling the most powerful, epic numbers BSS can offer, despite being their most stripped-down song

    General Commenti dont understand it, exactly, it sounds like all your thoughts could be correct, but this song, just the way of his voice makes me want to cover my ears in response. it is so beautiful, so simple, and plain. it it wonderful.

    General CommentFirst, it's "all my freinds are magazines". That being said, I think that the line is a metaphore for the how his freinds all read others ideas and then regurgitate the stolen ideas as their own...a sketchy move to say the least.
    Next, "I got addicted to the word leave" I would say clearly is saying that he wants to be alone. This may be because he is wise to his freinds theivery. Reguardles he wants them out.
    Then i think that "And they all request that you slow down, You’ve got to turn it around, And make a save" are the words of all his freinds. He is most likely alienating them in some way...maybe drugs, or maybe a girl. I think alienation is a major theme of this song. Ok, thats all I've got for now.

    General CommentDo you mean that "the duvets wish they were still wet" is a reference to "Wet Blanket"? I can see how that would work.

    But I am sure that this isn't a song about condemning friends and band members. That's ridiculous.

    General CommentListen to the song "Your Ex-Lover is not dead" and you will understand this song much better.

    General CommentI take that back.
    It is just a reference, and to many of the other artists from BSS.

    General CommentIt wouldn't be as obvious as the other references, but could "There's a whore inside their bed" be a reference to Apostle of Hustle's "Sleepwalking Ballad"? ("I went in to the wrong house last night, and crawled into the wrong bed...")
