I love the Gorillaz. This is a song which I haven’t come across before and I feel like it’s pretty different from their usual style. It has more of a raw, folk feel to it, and the lyrics are simple yet incredibly enigmatic. The melody is beautiful and I love the brass and percussion sounds.

Lyrics –
When you’re smoking tinfoil in the morning 
It’s gonna be a cold day 
When you’re keeping everything inside you 
It can only hurt you 

Unrelated sounds 
The sun will shine again 
You hold it in your hands 

This land is a young land let it stay that way 
Its pollution only turns you into something you don’t want to see in the water 
A reflection of them that you receive 

You don’t own the sun 
And the sun won’t shine again 
So maybe you’re all in love 
With Aluminium 

The cling and a clang 
Is the metal in my head when I walk 
I hear a sort of, this tinging noise 
Cling clang 
The cling clang 
So many things happen while walking 
The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk 
Freaks my balance out 
So the natural thought 
Is just clogged up 
Totally clogged up 
So we need to unplug these dams 
And make the the natural flow 
It sort of freaks me out 
We need to unplug the dams 
You cannot stop the natural flow of thought 
With a cling and a clang 

And wake me up again until 
We’re Aluminium 
You hold it in your hands 
The sun will shine again 
The sun will shine again 
The sun will shine again 
The sun will shine again 
The sun will shine again 
The sun will shine again
