    General Commentanybody see this live on Conan O'Brien? I know I did! my socks were rocked. Jack went over to Conan's desk, laid his axe down on top of it and went absolutely bat-shit. it was a sweetass sweet guitar solo.


    peace

    General CommentI´ve got a question:
    What does the boy say at the beginning of the song? He sings something about a little red box, but I can´t understand everything. Do you know what he sings?

    General Commentthis is wat he said in the beginning:

    sing that song u were singing, u forget it? (mom probably)
    no (kid)
    well y dont u sing it? (mom)
    ok (kid)
    i wish i had a little red box to put my best friends in
    id pick them up and put them back again (kid)

    thats basically wat he said
    there was a third voice, probably the dad or grandpa and hes just saying the same thing as the mom
    'o yea i remember, lets hear it'
    that part gets me confused- the kid wants voodoo dolls of all his friends and he wants to put them in a box?
    i dunno
    but thats wat they said

    General CommentThis song could be about how he doesn't want to leave his friends behind, how we wishes he could carry them around in a little red box (which is now a brick house).
    I'm pretty sure it's about his friends- who else keeps you from being lazy? Throw me a bone could mean drop me a line.
    The urgency of the song may be suggesting he wants to do it fast before he loses touch with his peers.

    General CommentThe kid at the beginning is Jack, and the other two are his mom and brother. Jack said: "That's me when I was six or seven, my older brother and mother were taping that. It was some sort of religious song. I didn't sing it right. It should have been, 'I wish I had a little red box to put the devil in, I'd take him out and punch-punch-punch and put him back again.'
