Orchestral Intro

[No lyrics]

. . .


Gorillaz and the boss Dogg
Planet of the apes

The revolution will be televised
And the pollution from the ocean
Now with devotion
Push peace and keep it in motion

Kids, gather around
Yeah, I need your focus
I know it seems like the world is so hopeless

It's like wonderland

Now fascinate me
Picture and animate me
'Cause I'm rollin'
Deep holein'
Click clacking
Crack-a-lacking
Full packing
Mo' stacking
Acting a fool when I teach
Welcome to the world of the Plastic Beach
Welcome to the world of the Plastic Beach

Mirror mirror on the wall
Boss Dawg
Give it to 'em
Get involved
Turn it up
Speed it up
Slow it up
Underground where the under us undercut
Shipped up
Shipped out
Swimmin' with the sharks
Put my gills up
Turn the wheels up
Real tough
Drinkin' lemonade in the shade
Getting blade with a gang of prilgrims

Yeah, just like that
Belly floppin' lockin' while I'm rockin' in the bubble bath
And I'm just like math
Fozo's added up that get you more cash
So quick, so fast
All the kids say they love it when I make 'em laugh

Welcome to the world of the Plastic Beach

. . .


Bashy:
Hey
Look
Yo!
No castaway, no survivor
I ain't lost and this ain't shipwrecked
I feel small in this big wide world
and mommy ain't said 'Honey, I shrunk the kids' yet.
I ain't Jesus, but i'm walkin' on water.
There's no bums here, there's no wall cause:
I can break out of jail with a lighter,
so is there any point in makin' laws blood?
This ain't Atlantis, are you sure?
I nearly suffocated when I touched the shore.
No Rain. Condoms(?) Imported(?)
Up the road, you'll never guess who I saw.

Kano:
It's K.A. look, skip on the beat like Ali in the gym.
Honey, I'm home. This is where I wanna live.
Disbanded like leave-oh!
on the d-low.
I don't know if it's greener, but it's green though:
on the other side of the fence.
Bind to the ends.
Look:
No fence, no stress, no rent, no supervision shit,
this real flow.
Where the women look hot, but the beach cold,
and the speech goes like, "Hi little lady."
Sex on the beach, wanna try for a baby.
Word in the village, I'm a little bit crazy.
Swag up on a hundred degrees, not eighty.
Look, if heaven had a VIP
this is it: white sand, blue sea,
but I don't know who they are,
and I'm damn sure they don't know me,
but I come in peace!

B: Cool! White Flag! White Flag!
K: No War!
B: No Guns!
K: No Corps!
B: Just life.
K: Just Love
B: No Hate.
K: Just fun.
B: No ties.
K: Just me and my mind.
B: Just me and my wife.
K: But tell me if I'm dreamin'
'cause I don't wanna wake up till the evenin'
B: and I don't wanna be left sleepin'
from all the diseases
that I breathe in.
K: Look, respect the island, no stealin'!
B: and don't bring religion here, no three kings.
K: It's great and we ain't leavin'!
We come on in peace. Sing!
B: White flag?
K: White flag!

I'm a scary gargoyle on a tower
That you made with plastic power
Your rhinestone eyes are like factories far away

When the paralytic dreams that we all seem to keep
Drive on engines till they weep
With future pixels in factories far away

So call the mainland from the beach
Your heart is now washed up in bleach
The waves are rising for this time of year
And nobody knows what to do with the heat
Under sunshine pylons we'll meet while rain is falling like rhinestones from the sky

I got a feeling now my heart is frozen
All the phoses and growsin
Happy and after native in my soul
I prayed on the unmovable
Yeah clinging to the adam's of rock
Seasons seas just smooth Signs are change
I cant see now she said taxi
I that light is so I can take
Storm bring strange loyalties

I'm a scary gargoyle on a tower
That you made with plastic power
Your rhinestone eyes are like factories far away
(Here we go again)
(That's electric)

Helicopters fly over the beach
Same time everyday same routine
Clear target in the summer when skies are blue
Its part of the noise when winter comes
It reverberates in my lungs
Natures' corrupted in factories far away

Your loves' like rhinestones, falling from the sky
With future pixels in factories far away
Your loves' like rhinestones, falling from the sky
With future pixels in factories far away

. . .


Love, electricity, shockwave central
Pummel on the motherboard, yes
Push up, overload, legendary heavy glow
Sunshine, thunder roll, keep this on
Yes the lantern burn, burn that easy
And broadcast, so raw and neatly
Thunder roll, sunshine, work it out

Overload, overload, overload
Comin' up to the
Overload, overload, overload
Comin' up to the
Overload, overload, overload
Comin' up to the
Overload, overload, overload
Comin' up to the

Oh Stylo...
Go forth, blossom in your soul
When you know your heart is light
Electric is the love

When the mako flies up from the bottom in your eyes
Then I know the twilight skies are not so broken hearted

If its love is electric
It'll be flowing on the streets
Night after night
Just to get through the week
Sometimes it's hard

Right now

Sing yourself out of depression, rise above
Always searching if I know your heart
Electric is the love

There's only one way
Let it pray a little while longer
It's got a way of passing through man and woman
In another world
In another world, in the universe

Right now

Here's what we got to do

If its love is electric
It'll be flowing on the streets
Night after night
Just to get through the week
Sometimes it's hard

That's what I'm talking about

Love, electricity, shockwave central
Pummel on the motherboard, yes
Push up, overload, legendary heavy glow
Sunshine, thunder roll, keep this on
Yes the lantern burn, burn that easy
And broadcast, so raw and neatly
Thunder roll, sunshine, work it out

Right now

This morning you've got time for a hot, home-cooked breakfast
Delicious and piping hot in only 3 microwave minutes.

Yo, pretty packages of frosted delights
Look, it comes with a toy hehe, I like that.
I wanna number 4, a number 6, and throw in a plastic doughnut
Just enjoy the gritty crunch, it tastes just like chicken.
Wrappers of many bit sizes
Man, are you freakin blind? That's a rock.
All mixed in the pot for momma's homemade from scratch, well, not quite.
Toasted over flames, they be tasting quite right.

All hail king Neptune and his water breathers
No snail thing to quick for his water feeders
Don't waste time with your net, our net worth is Set Ready, go.
Many know others, but
we be the colors of the mad and the wicked
we be bad, we be brickit with the 24 hour sign
shower my habits while you dine like rabbits
with the crunchy, crunchy carrots (that's chicken)
Gotta have it Superfast!

(A whole lot of breakfast you got time for!)

Superfast Superfast, I come in last, but just in time for breakfast
Keep it through, Keep it through, forever blue
Tonight's the night for ??
Aluminum I crush your f.u.n aluminum
The sea is radioactive
The sea is radioactive

All hail king Neptune and his water breathers
No snail thing to quick for his water feeders
Don't waste time with your net, our net worth is Set, Ready, go.
Many know others, but
we be the colors of the mad and the wicked
we be bad, we be brickit with the 24 hour sign
shower my habits while you dine like rabbits
with the crunchy, crunchy carrots (that's chicken)
Gotta have it Superfast!

Superfast Superfast, I come in last, but just in time for breakfast
Keep it through, Keep it through, forever blue
Tonight's the night for ??
Aluminum I crush your f.u.n aluminum
The sea is radioactive
The sea is radioactive

Superfast Jellyfish
Superfast Jellyfish
Superfast Jellyfish (Don't waste time!)
Superfast Jellyfish
Superfast Jellyfish

. . .


Oh joy's arise
The sun has come again too hold you
Sailing out the doordrums of the
The polyphonic prairies here, its all around you
Its all around you, out here

And if the whole world is crashing down
Fall through space out of mind again
Where the emptiness we leave behind on warm air rising
Lose all the shadows far away

The falling alcohol empire, is here to hold you
Ruling out and haunted till it sinks

Little memories, marching on
Your little feet, working the machine
Will it spin, will it sore
My little dream, working the machine

??

Little memories
Your little feet, working the machine
Will it spin, will it sore
My little dream, working the machine

??

. . .


Where's North from here?

It was a glitter freeze
Listen
You are a credit
A believer

Ship him far!

. . .


Some kind of nature
Some kind of soul
Some kind of mixture
Some kind of gold
Some kind of majesty
Some chemical load

Some kind of metal made up from glue
Some kind of plastic I could wrap around you
They need the eat, and they-they wear phony clothes

Some kind of nature
Some kind of soul
Some kind of mixture
Some kind of gold
Some kind of majesty
Some chemical load

Well near thy plastics
And digital foils
Could wrap up the sun
And protect the girls
From the spiritual poisons
You spill at night
Like phony clothes, but
I really like my-

Some kind of nature (some kind of nature, some kind of soul)
Comes from one within us
Oh, Lord, forgive me (some kind of mixture, some kind of gold)
It's got to come and find us
All we are is dust

Some kind of metal made up from glue
Some kind of plastic I could wrap around you
They need the eat, and they-they wear phony clothes

Some kind of nature (some kind of nature, some kind of soul)
Comes from one within us
Oh, Lord, forgive me (some kind of mixture, some kind of gold)
It's got to come and find us
All we are is dust

. . .


Up on melancholy hill
There's a plastic tree
Are you here with me
Just looking out on the day
Of another dream

Well you can't get what you want
But you can get me
So let's set up and see
'Cause you are my medicine
When you're close to me
When you're close to me

So call in the submarine
'round the world will go
Does anybody know
If we're looking out on the day
Of another dream

If you can't get what you want
Then you come with me

Up on melancholy hill
A manatee?
Just looking out on the day
When you're close to me
When you're close to me

When you're close to me

. . .


Distant stars
Come in black or red
I've seen their worlds
Inside my head

They connect
With the fall of man
They breathe you in
And dive as deep as they can

There's nothing you can do for them
They are the force between
When the sunlight is arising

There's nothing you can say to him
He is an outer heart
And the space has been broken

Broken
Our love
Broken

Is it far away in the
Glitter Freeze
Or in our eyes
Every time they leave

It's by the light
Of the plasma springs
We keep switched on
All through the night while we sleep

There's nothing you can do for them
They are the force between
When the sunlight is arising

There's nothing you can say to her
I am without a heart
And the space has been broken

Broken
Our love
Broken

To the dark dark sea's
Comes the only whale
Watching ships go by
It's the day we try

It doesn't know

It's a Casio on a plastic beach [x2]
It's a styrofoam deepsea landfill [x2]
It's sort of made a computer speech [x2]
It's a Casio on a plastic beach
It's a Casio

If they hold you, whale
On a really hot day
When the call got made
You've gone away

It doesn't know

Its a Casio on a plastic beach [x2]
It's a styrofoam deepsea landfill [x2]
It's sort of made a computer speech [x2]
It's a Casio on a plastic beach
It's a Casio

. . .


Waiting by the mailbox, by the train
Passin' by the hills 'til I hear the name
I'm looking for a saw to cut these chains in half and all I want is
Someone to rely on as
Thunder comes a rolling down
Someone to rely on as
Lightning comes a staring in again

I'll wait to be forgiven
Maybe I never will
My star has left me
To take the bitter pill
That shattered feeling
Well the cause of it's a lesson learned
Just don't know if I could roll into the sea again
"Just don't know if I could do it all again" she said, it's true

Waiting in my room and i lock the door
I watch the coloured animals across the floor
And im looking from a distance
And im listening to the whispers
And oh it aint the same, when your falling out of feeling and your
Falling in and caught again

Im caught again in the mystery
Your by my side, but are you still with me?
The answers somewhere deep in it, im sorry but your feeling it
But i just have to tell that i love you so much these days
Have to tell you that i love you so much these days, its true

My heart is in economy
Due to this autonomy
Rolling in and caught again
Caught again

My heart is in economy
Due to this autonomy
Rolling in and caught again
Caught again

. . .


On the cloud of unknowing
My world seems open
Every satellite up here is watching
But I was here from the very start
Trying to find a way to your heart

All the days are forgetting
They've gone out with the tide
Lost at sea somewhere, waiting
Like setting suns at the rodeo
Trying to find someone you'll never know

Oh, sinking love
On the cloud of unknowing
Every satellite up here is wanting
Waiting to see what the morning brings
May bring sunshine on its wings

. . .


Its all good news now
Because we left the taps
Running
For a hundred years
So drink into the drink

A plastic cup of drink
Drink with a couple
of people
The plastic creating people

Still connected
to the moment
it began
