Bloc Party. - Hunting For Witches Lyrics




I was sitting, on the roof of my house
With a shotgun
And a six pack of beers,six pack of beers,six pack of beers.
The newscaster says, "The enemy is among us"
As bombs explode on the 30 bus,
Kill your middle class indecision,
Now is not the time for liberal thought,

So I go hunting for witches
I go hunting for witches
Heads are going to roll
I go hunting for..

90's,Optimistic as a teen.
Now its terror
airplanes crash into towers, into towers, into towers.

The Daily Mail says the enemies among us,
Taking our women and taking our jobs,
All reasonable thought is being drowned out by the non-stop baying, baying, baying for blood

So I go hunting for witches
I go hunting for witches
Heads are going to roll..
I was an ordinary man with ordinary desires
I watched TV, it informed me
I was an ordinary man with ordinary desires
There must be accountability
Disparate and misinformed
Fear will keep us all in place

So I go hunting for witches
I go hunting for witches
Heads are going to roll

I was an ordinary man with ordinary desires
I watched TV, it informed me
I was an ordinary man with ordinary desires
There must be accountability
Disparate and misinformed
Fear will keep us all in place

  5. moonking192020

    This song is more true today than it was than!

  6. Edward Lewis Paxton

    There's that village of the dead Terrington '3 witches' needs sorting out.

  7. Demons of Selzar

    tasty riff

  8. aman tewolde

    This song is quite underrated. It's all these references from a seemingly pseudo-intellectual middle class perspective of an english youth in the 21st century. Very obvious references to white middle class American culture, and you'd think that the lyrics as a whole are a mere abstract collection of cringeworthy ideas but if you listen well enough, you can perceive the high level of intelligence and craft which with they are loosely bound to each other. I don't know if Kele himself wrote this song, but it's a very brilliant piece. Very intelligent and heartfelt.

  9. lasarus ratuere

    .. and still very relevant moving into the new decade.

    Great song from a great band.

  23. Norman Garcia

    After reading those lyrics.. Trump isn’t so crazy as they make him out to be

    Witch hut. Now is not the time for liberal way of thinking

    Accountability—> sjw and the far left Democrats and what they have done with the border, health care, and the state of the nation in terms of moral and division.

    I was sitting
    On the roof of my house
    With a shotgun
    And a six pack of beers, six pack of beers, six pack of beers
    The newscaster says the enemy's among us
    As bombs explode on the thirty bus
    Kill your middle class indecision
    Now is not the time for a liberal thought
    So I go hunting for witches
    I go hunting for witches
    Heads are going to roll
    I go hunting for
    Nineties, optimistic as a teen
    Now its terror
    Airplanes crash into towers
    The Daily Mail says the enemys among us
    Taking our women and taking our jobs
    The reasonable fool is being drowned out
    By the non-stop baying, baying, baying for blood
    Fame to go
    So I go hunting for witches
    I go hunting for witches
    Heads are going to roll
    I go hunting for
    I was an ordinary man with ordinary desires
    I watched TV and it formed me
    I was an ordinary man with ordinary desires
    There must be accountability
    Despaired and misinformed
    Fear will keep us all in place
    So I go hunting for witches
    I go hunting for witches
    Heads are going to
    I go hunting for
    I was an ordinary man with ordinary desires
    I watched TV and it formed me
    I was an ordinary man with ordinary desires
    There must be accountability
    Despaired and misinformed
    Fear will keep us all in place

  62. LOONEY Æ SIN

  63. S M

    Matt Tong!!!! Bitches!!!!

  64. TheHattsworth

  65. mctwistx12

    wtf 11 years before

  66. kamran102

    Crystal Castles does it better though

  67. Zombreee

    anyone 2k18? :)

  68. Gavin Rowe

    One of the top 10 drive fast songs on the planet.

  69. mctwistx12

    que buenos bajoooss

  70. Lachlan Mackay

    Crazy train??

  71. Tyler Barnick

    The beginning of the video gets me so hyped for what's to come, and then when the song is over it fades away showing the representation of sticking inside the enclosed circle we all put ourselves in when we try to keep out of the world around us...

  72. FraggyTheFrag

    "So, are hunting for bitches..."
    😇

  76. Calibrated

    hunting my anxiety

  77. Daniel Cropp

    Kele Okereke seems like such a passionate and sensitive guy.

  78. AlfieQW

    It sucks how I can’t find this song on Spotify 😡 I remember hearing it on a Halloween compilation CD quite a few years ago & I loved it! 🤘definitely gonna check out more of their stuff though 👍

    SerMattzio

    I think it's been removed. I had it on my playlist until about a week ago and it's disappeared.

    AlfieQW

    Damn seems like the whole albums been taken off spotify, can't think why they'd do this!

    SerMattzio

    And it's back again! How odd. Must have been a contract dispute over use of the song or something.

  79. ThriftyKitten

    the comments should prioritize the ones from 2007 not 2017

  80. mia bay

    I LOVE "punk" .....the fast pace and the emphasis on drumming

  81. mia bay

    This song gets my blood pumping!... Going a hundred mph down the highway...

  82. Wahyu Fredy

    miss old formation this band, kele, russel, gordon, matt

  83. Miryam Ciancarelli

    Always sick 😋😋💚😈🔥

  84. Lance Buttercream

    Sure do wish Bloc Party was more appreciated/recognized in America.

  85. William Öhman

    Honestly, they could have been the succesors of Radiohead (if Radiohead wasn´t around), they were that good back then...

  86. Dustbin Hoffman

    Treadmill Anthem

  87. Terry Ahmos

    Look how young kele was. Hahahaa.
    You turned out bro. Dont let anyone hate

  88. Tooktoomuchmolly

    I always listen to this thru a bmx video (bmx tricks 2) I never thought a black guy would be in this

  89. Cowboycomando54

    This is going to seem weird, but this song always makes me think of the game Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed.

  90. Ricardo Ramirez Jr

    Very original

  91. Eduardo Serrano

    Pata y Culo.

  92. Jordan Service

    Why is the quality soooo low?!

  93. Vaag Figuur

    FrankJavCee brought me here

  94. Walter Thatcher

    Fun fact: Whoever directed this used the pseudonym "Alan Smithee" which directors use when they hate the final product too much to put their own name on it.

  95. BK - 12JM - David Suzuki SS (2662)

    10 Years ago is song was released! I love this song 😀😍
