"Everyday Robots" (2014)

Everyday Robots lyrics - Damon Albarn

'They didn’t know where they was going, but they knew where they was wasn’t it'

We are everyday robots on our phones
In the process of getting home
Looking like standing stones
Out there on our own

We’re everyday robots in control
Or in the process of being sold
Driving in adjacent cars
‘Til you press restart

Everyday robots just touch thumbs
Swimmin’ in lingo they become
Stricken in a status sea
One more vacancy

For everyday robots getting old
When our lips are cold
Lookin’ like standing stones
Out there on our own

Little robots in ringback tones
In the process of getting home

Hostiles lyrics - Damon Albarn

When the serve is done
And the parish shuffled some
And the May frequencies come
To keep you away
When your body aches
From the arms of dreams you keep
And the hours passed by
Just left on repeat

[Chorus:]
It'll be a silent day
I'll share with you
Fighting off the hostiles
With whom we collude
Hoping to find the key
To this play of communications
Between you and me

When the LCD
Are all the player ones you can be
Put your foot down in the right hand lane
If you are with me
'Til the trains re-route
And the rush-hour is come
And the May frequencies
Have sent you to sleep

[Chorus]

Don't burn so
Don't burn so
Don't burn so late
Don't burn so
Don't burn so
Don't burn so late

[Chorus]

Lonely Press Play lyrics - Damon Albarn

Arrhythmia, accepting that you live
With uncertainty
If you're lonely, press play

Die, lady, die
The aspects that you pass on
While traveling
When you're lonely, press play

[Chorus:]
Cause you're not resolved
In your heart, you're waiting for me
To improve
Right here
When I'm lonely, I press play

Swimming in blue
After New Year
Into the mirror she flew
When I'm lonely, I press play

Can I get any closer?
What anecdote can I bring to you?
When I'm lonely, I press play

[Chorus]

Arrhythmia, accepting that you live
With one certainty
If you're lonely, press play
Can I get any closer?
What anecdote can I bring to you?
When I'm lonely, I press play
Cause you're not resolved
In your heart you're waiting for me

Mr. Tembo lyrics - Damon Albarn (feat. The Leytonstone City Mission Choir)

Injili, Injili
Can I sing with you
'Bout Mr. Tembo and what he's got to do
But first I'm going back
To the Colworth Road
To find the mission
And help him with his load

[Chorus:]
Mr. Tembo is on his way up the hill
With only this song to tell you how he feels
But to get there he will need a helping hand
It's where he is now but it wasn't what he planned
It's where he is now but it wasn't what he planned

Injili, Injili
We will sing with you
Just like the T.V
In Mr. Tembo's room
Off the emphatic night
He checked in on his own
At Mkombozi Inn and
Made it his home

[Chorus]

Injili, Injili
We will sing to you
'Bout Mr. Tembo
And what he's going through
Gets up early
While you are still in bed
Mr. Tembo, green blanket by his head

[Chorus]

Hey, you keep those lions off the front of the boat!
Good God, man! Have you some cotton in your ears?!
I'm trying to run this expedition in a decent manner!

Logistics, haulage, golf, bungalows, spires, canals, cows, hay bales
Telegraph wires, pylon power
Farmhouse over chimneys still used
Stone, satellites, football pitches, faded flags and lots of dogs
Neon cross on top of a block of flats, and a church, not as usual

[Chorus]

The Selfish Giant lyrics - Damon Albarn (feat. Natasha Khan)

Celebrate the passing drugs
Put em on the back seat while they're coursing in your blood
Is there a monster soul walking down Argyle St. when the evening colors call?

It's true

I had a dream you were leaving
It's hard to be a lover when the T.V.'s on and nothing's in your eye
I had a dream you were leaving where every atom falling in the universe is passing through our lives

Press yourself to me right now
Push yourself deep down now to the dark eels on my skull
Where the shadows hide waiting for the final call it's coming down the line

Death

I had a dream you were leaving
It's hard to be a lover when the T.V.'s on and nothing's in your eye
I had a dream you were leaving where every atom falling in the universe is passing through our lives

I had a dream you were leaving
Death

I had a dream you were leaving
It's hard to be a lover when the T.V.'s on and nothing's in your eye (It's true)
I had a dream you were leaving where every atom falling in the universe is passing through our lives

I had a dream you were leaving
I had a dream you were leaving

You And Me lyrics - Damon Albarn

I met Moko Jumbi
He walks on stilts through all saints row
Looking over the brew now, for a possession loss
People sound, no days off
In September, when the sun sets soon now

[Chorus 1:]
In you, it radiates on you
Seven high they're rising
Over on the other side
Of September when the sun sets soon now

Jab jab, digging out a hole in Westbourne Grove
Tin foil and a lighter, the ship across
Five days on, two days off, in September
When the sun sets soon now

[Chorus 1 x2]

[Chorus 2 x2:]
You can blame me
Blame me
Blame me
Blame me
When the twilight comes
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again
All goes round again

Some days I look at the morning trying to work out how I got here
Cause the distance between us is the glamour’s cost
Late night on the shop floor what language was i speaking
Not sure I remember the thrill and fall
Always in me
Let it go

[Chorus 2 x2]

Hollow Ponds lyrics - Damon Albarn

Chill on the hollow ponds
Set sail by a kid
In the heat wave that hit us all, 1976

I felt the percussion
The green man had gone
Half my road was now a motorway, 1991

I was by the Black Sea
Two hours in time
Spiny urchins and a new school bell, 1979

Changed into lakeside
In January (hollow ponds)
Modern life was sprayed onto a wall in 1993

Where the horses and passing trains
A pentangle reveals
In the green woods where you walked with me
Ship on hollow ponds was filled
Up with the dreams we've share on our CDs
Every moment now and everyday
Every moment now and everyday

Photographs (You Are Taking Now) lyrics - Damon Albarn

[Chorus:]
When the photographs you're taking now are taken down again
When the heavy clouds that hide the sun have gone
The millions of us on the hill from the star to lands end
When photographs you're taking now are taken now press send

This is a precious opportunity beware of the photographs you are taking now

We are flying over black sands
In a glass aeroplane
Crashing in slow motion in another cityscape game
Where the feeling is supernatural
Like passing into other worlds
The ending dissolution when the mother ship, it explodes

[Chorus]

We were walking like zombies on over
To the church of John Coltrane
8 hours on a bus from sunset but freedom taking cocaine
In the patent courts of nature
All is but a vanity
And the metronome that defeats you
Is the monochrome that you see

[Chorus]

This is a precious opportunity beware of the photographs you are taking now

Photographs you are taking now
Photographs you are taking now

The History Of A Cheating Heart lyrics - Damon Albarn

More than you know
More than you know
When the river shallows

[Chorus:]
I always go back to the moment
I fear the most
I carry this upon my back always
If you fall then I will put you back
I do love you but it's just a fact
The history of the cheating heart is
Always more than you know

More than you know
More than you know
When the white owl flies over

[Chorus]

More than you know
I am beside you
Under the tango tree I grew
With my concert on forever
The history of my love will show
It's more than you know

Heavy Seas Of Love lyrics - Damon Albarn (feat. Brian Eno & The Leytonstone City Mission Choir)

[Verse 1: Brian Eno]
When your soul isn’t right
And it’s raw to the night
It’s in your hands
When the traces of dark come
To fade in the light
You’re in safe hands

[Chorus: Damon Albarn]
Heavy seas of love
Radiance is in you
As above so below
On the heavy seas of love

[Chorus: Damon Albarn]
Heavy seas of love
We come together in you
Counting out the new moons
On the heavy seas of love

[Verse 2: Brian Eno]
When the world is to tall
You can jump you won’t fall
You’re in safe hands
What the day will now give
How those seeds will now live
It’s in your hands

[Chorus: Damon Albarn]
Heavy seeds of love
Radiance is in you
As above so below
On the heavy seas of love

[Outro: Damon Albarn]
Heavy seas of love
We come together in you
Counting out the new moons
On the heavy seas of love

Heavy seeds of love
Radiance is in you
As above so below
On the heavy seas of love

Heavy seas of love
Radiance is in you
Counting out the new moons
On the heavy seas of love

Father's Daughter's Son lyrics - Damon Albarn

If there's only one day left, given at dawn
Someone's gonna sing of the pages torn
Out of the book tied in a knot, all forgiven

Strong Titan, how about you
Only of a sigh breaking through
There are more of us here than there ever were here before

I was caught in the sights of Venus at night
She came and put her clothes in me
Carried me away through mirrored rooms
On the way to the violet seas

Lord, you better stand up
Don't let yourself down
It's over and the deed is done
Down in the house by Gallow's Green
For a father's daughter's son

Learning to live with a broken guard
Put it in my heart and let it sing "Lord"
There are more of us here than there ever were here before

And you may not like it, you may disagree
But tides still pull you into the sea
There are more of us here than there ever were here before

I was caught in the sights of Venus at night
She came and put her clothes in me
Carried me away through mirrored rooms
On the way to the violet seas

Well Lord, there are so many of us
Trying to let go
It's over and the deed is done
Down in the house by Gallow's Green
For a father's daughter's son

Empty Club lyrics - Damon Albarn

I turned up late on a Saturday night
You had your headphones on and the only light
Came from the slow deleted history

I dropped my guard, you can do the same
We can go hard then ease the pain
With tomorrow's DVDs

Would you do that for me?
Would you do that for me?
Would you just turn and walk away?

In an empty club
Song is the sun
In the dim light of deleting histories
Never to be seen again

Now the pylon stance in a tug of war
In every town, feel the chemical roar
Of a congregation leaving in their drawers

As the lights go down on Saturday night
And the fires of Sunday begin their fight
With tomorrow's personnel

Would you do that for me?
Would you do that for me?
Would you just turn and walk away?

In an empty club
Song is the sun
In the dim light of deleting histories
Never to be seen again

Apple Carts lyrics - Damon Albarn

Pour the apple carts up from silvery hill
Pour the apple carts up from silvery hill
Higher into heaven, revealed on the adult dome
Respond to great authority singing alleluia, alleluia

Love does reign in the kingdom of the broken heart
The black bird sings, the moon, it starts, war begins, dawns

Now burn the apple carts
They were meant to look great
Fire making to grow in the space
There beneath the stones recharge

From great austerity turning lovers tonight
Silver and white are disdained
In the kingdom of the broken heart
The black bird sings, the sun
It starts, war begins, dawns
