Albarn, Damon - The Marvelous Dream Lyrics

Hurricanes spit and tornado
Growl over London today
Brought some God-fire to the state
Beam onto Earth Jerusalem
The spirit it comes upon a mighty wave
Felt some God-fire in its wake

I call to the dance, now the party begun
Alcohol, holiday, drunken bass drum
Levitating youth jump around the May Queen
A time for revival or maybe just a marvelous dream

And the moon rises high, it come call me
The end of the cycle has come again
I am helpless, innate
Awake in the matin next morning
Empty a belly and courting my time on earth
I am helpless advocate

I call to the dance, now the party begun
Alcohol, holiday, drunken bass drum
Oh gander moon [?] spirit side go swap your beds
The looters of your heart will prove that you are not quite dead

  1. Moon Watch

    lol just hang about outside his house filming. I looked up to see how much to rent a place there, way too out of my price range though.

  2. Michael Park

    Is this where Mortlake once stood?

  3. Gachaboy s a d

    Al contrario has una canción de Gorillaz no de tu canal original

  4. Emma Van Rose

  6. Ijlal Hannan

    I can't help but to shiver in awe and admiration whenever I listen to this song and Damon's voice.

  7. Alan aaa

  10. Jada Gumpert

    I miss the Gorillaz, I still listen to all of them songs everyday too and it makes me really sad when I hit that last song and I think 'there is going to be no more'

    criboy roots

    @Jada Gumpert it is true!! it's coming out in 2015. I am waiting them too !

    The 2nd Law Of Thermodynamics

    I felt happy reading this. How did you feel when the two newer albums came out? 😁

  11. Nilson's Bleep

    Albarn is a Genius. We haven't even seen the best of him yet.



    Markesh ouYeah

    @assfullofdick ¬¬


    you were right...cause his solo album was the greatest and now The good the bad and the queen album is fantastic too....

  12. Micheal Saiyan

    2D. I have been listening since I was very young. A real showcase with all types of music.

  13. Karol Kolasa

    Nice :)
    Very Very ^^

  14. Kerry Equestrian

    Damon is an insanely talented musician and everything he touches is golden but I don't know whether this rivals Gorillaz, that was the ultimate example of genius


    erm... ever heard of blur? or the good the bad & the queen?

    Kerry Equestrian

    Of course i've heard of Blur, but personally, I think Gorillaz was a million times better. And Blur is not rivalled by this work either.


    the thing with blur is you mustn't underestimate the massive impact they had on british music. fuck that. on music itself. i can still hear blur's unfathomable inspiration echo through most of the newer bands we love from hard-fi to the killers (something they obviously share with the likes of the stone roses, the verve, oasis, suede, pulp, elastica and many many more.) gorillaz will never be as revolutionary as blur ever was. i don't think damon's projects, solo or not, overlap in any way, nor does one eclipse the other. that'd be just stupid - not releasing matching pieces of genius under the same name. having said all this, i maintain my stance on blur outshining the rest.

    karim mekawey

    i just would like to mention that he did not do gorillaz all on his own he had hordes of people helping him from collaborators to producers, other musicians, the same with blur he would come in the studio with a basic song idea and all of the band build it up from there, i love gorillaz and blur and damon very much but i dont think they would be the same if they were the sole effort of damon albarn although i do admit damon albarn is a freaking genius and insanely talented

  15. Ради томсон

    Syd Barrett

    Serial Killa

    GbrElfunk - yeah, I wouldn't say Joy Division.

  35. Roadtrip Warrior

    It is beautiful. But I still wish he would go back to working on the Gorillaz...

  36. Lyn Smith

    It's sublimely beautiful, isn't it? I love it. So perfect.

  37. Jose Raul Montero


  38. Don Llyr

    For anyone who is doubting this album, remember its for the theatre. It has to be musically and conceptually different. This album is actually genius.

  39. Pablo Teruel

    a forest trance................

  40. bloodshake

    So Relaxing.
    Thank You Damon.

  41. Joseph T

    I disagree, its all a matter of taste. Personally I kind of like the sort of drone of the repeated guitar notes which sounds quite mystical with the lyrics and the repeating melody.

  42. maxleresistant

    The Dancing King sounds way better though

  43. maxleresistant

    flat and boooooring. sounds like amateur work.

  44. bloodshake


  45. Francisco Jiménez

    Me gusta y mucho!!!!! ahora sonando en @ElFindelmundo Saludos Rulito !!!!!

  46. Rachel Doll

    I find it ironic that today while I was buying a gorillaz album, the store was playing this song. Lol. I was like whoa, is this Gorillaz? But then I was like wait I think this is just Damon. Haha.

  47. blueheaven

    next step: the opera on DVD! :)

  48. lens2optic

    ill be buying this album on day of release

  49. Javier Pilar

    how people can't understand it? it's not about the visual in the video, the important thing here is the brilliant sound coming out.

  50. panoramican

    too sad, that he wants to end up with Gorrilaz :(

  51. katymaltha

    clacton version is so much better.

  65. dvn61

    I prefer the original (claxton)with the traditional wind instruments, it had a wonderful feel to it when it kicked into the chorus.

  66. MrHidki
