"Bandwitch" as written by and Brendan Canning Andrew Whiteman....
(Put the little kids in the corner with their face and their eyes in the corner)

My favorite band is a witch
Find themselves in poet corners, and they still like to dick
It's of course, they're afraid, it's a fine, complicate
You can find, demonstrate, slip along, demon ways

My favorite band, is a witch
Find themselves with perfect mornings, and they still try to live
The menstruation, pull it surprised a masturbation, a little morning cries
I wish on thievery of corners
Admit the cries, I know he's saying, I know he's saying so tired

They'll have to put the little kids in the corner with there eyes and face on the floor
You're so fucked up now, you're fucked up now

Put the little kids in the corner with their eyes and face on the floor
Put the little kids in the corner with their eyes and face on the floor

I know you want me to keep on going
You want me to keep on going

And you know wherever I am

    General Commentthis song makes me feel a little afraid. i think this sounds so different when compared to other broken social scene songs. this song's aura just reeks of destruction or negativity [to me], and i havent ever felt that before with any of BSS's stuff. i really like it though!

    General CommentI like how it kind of unravels at the end with all the studio chatter (?). It makes the final lyrics, "And you know wherever I am..", so cool.

    General CommentI think I'm going to have to take the fellows advice above and get stoned and give this song a listen. Although listening to it with nothing in my system is pretty amazing also.

    it's a find,
    complicate,
    and you can fuck,
    demonstrate,
    sleep alone.........
    demon wait.
    waiting for joeys kind
    my favorite band is a witch
    (you can lick the corner sides)
    find themselves with perfect mourners
    and they still try to live
    ( you can lick the cortisone)
    the administration,
    the pull it surprise,
    the masturbation,
    the little morning cries.......i wait on fear
    in a ray of corners,
    and mental crimes,
    i know your singing,
    sing it self war time,
    war time
    they like to put the little kids in the corner
    with their eyes and face on the floor...
    i'm waiting for joeys kind
    i'm waitng for joeys kind
    your in a fucked up band

    ( sections of the solar panel lies )
    your in a fucked up band
    ( all the life)
    your in a fucked up band
    they like to put the little kids in the corner with their face on the floor
    put the little kids in the corner with their face and their eyes on the
    floor..
    on the floor..........
    you want me to keep on going,
    i know you want you want to keep on going.....
    and you know where ever i am.......


    here are the lyrics according to the official site..

    I know this sounds crazy but i think the song is based on, or at least deals with some issues of the movie and legend of "the blair witch project".. the line "they like to put the little kids in the corner with there face and eys on the floor" is a reference to how a legendary serial killer named rustin parr tortured and killed his victims: one child would wait in the corner facing the floor as another was slowly killed. when arrested rustin parr claimed that he was "possesed" by the blair witch or some demon from the forest.. or maybe the song is just a metaphor for how people can blame their actions on being possessed by things like drugs or "demons"

    General CommentI think this song is about bands in general, being asses and turning their lives into complete shit.
    But thats just a theory.
