Albarn, Damon - The Selfish Giant Lyrics




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

    Celebrate the passing drugs
    Put them on the back seat while
    They're coursing in your blood

    'Cause there are monsters oh
    Walking down Argyle Street
    Where the evening colors go (it's true)

    I had a dream that you were leaving
    It's hard to be a lover when the TV's on
    And nothing is in your eyes

    I had a dream that you were leaving
    Where every atom falling in the universe
    Is passing through our minds

    Press yourself to me right now
    Push yourself deep down now
    To the dark hills I must go
    Where the shadows hide
    Waiting for the final call
    It's coming down the line

    I had a dream that you were leaving
    It's hard to be a lover when the TV's on
    And nothing is in your eyes

    I had a dream that you were leaving
    Where every atom falling in the universe
    Is passing through our minds

    I had a dream that you were leaving
    I had a dream that you were leaving
    It's hard to be a lover when the TV's on
    And nothing is in your eyes

    I had a dream that you were leaving
    Where every atom falling in the universe
    Is passing through our minds

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

    Spud Zilla

    it's there amongst us, oh.

  13. Marscael 04

    Dude why are these so old and so un-noticed?

    Devus The Wolf!

    Because people these days can't appreciate true unrivaled musical art and genius ;-;

    _Saiko

    Unfortunately most people prefer crappy pop and crappy rap...

  14. ɹǝʞɐʇᴉɥʍ ʇɥƃᴉɹʇɐoq

    This song is as if 2-D got all of the 2-D sucked out of him

    Celebrate the passing drugs

    "Its there amongst us all", not "There are monsters oh"

  16. Sierra Lattanzio

    I’m not crying you’re crying

  17. Ivan Lopez

    Does anyone have the instrumental for this?

  18. Jack Bush

    So much emotion comes from this song

  19. MADDOGG P

    Im not trying to overreact but every song from “Everyday Robots” had made me cry the first time listening to it... his voice is angelic, and his technique to make people feel is affection and pain at the same time is breathtaking. I am only 13 yet I feel like I have known him forever. He brings me back home when he sings. All I wish is that I can someday meet him. If you reply saying I’m just a teenager who listens to music, you’re wrong.. in every song I listen to I analyze the emotion portrayed by simple notes, I am a musician as well so listening to his music is giving me a feel of how to pull people into my music as I play. Sorry if this is long, I’m just sick and tired of being stereotyped into a typical teenager.

    Stop your going to hurt yourself. Just wait until your 18 or 19 that's where the real fun comes. Fun which i mean that's where all the tragedies become into a creative source.

    The Courier

    I recommend go towards go his Gorillaz Plastic Beach , Demon Days , The Now Now album give it time till you start with his Solo Albums ;(

    Paul Kempa

    why is this such a cringy comment

  20. Randolph Lautsch

    ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY BRILLIANT!!!!!

  21. Tom Kiggins

    Best song off the album hands down. A little weird though how this comes almost right after Mr Tembo.

    Randolph Lautsch

    No Shit!!! Mr. Tembo is just awful. I'm always fast forwarding to Parakeet!

    The Courier

    @Randolph Lautsch how could you ? ):

    fruit salad

    I find it odd that Lonely Press Play leadd into Mr. Tembo. Both amazing songs (in my opinion), they just have very different tones

    Ricardo O.

    I like Mr Tembo but it stood out in the album as the one that didn't fit in

  22. Blundera Bluez

    I love this song. One of the very best on the record imo. Thanks for making me stare into space Damon <3

  23. bees ?

    I read an interview of someone that met damon and they said he was a lovely man but i read it as a lonely man and this song makes me think both of him

  24. Dan

    The feels are just 👌👌👌

  25. Tritnew

    If Rick and Morty ever has a sad moment like Rick's attempted suicide, this would definitely fit one of those moments.
    EDIT 3/13/19 : Coming back to this comment was... Quite interesting. I ain't as hardcore or "high IQ", as the people say these days, of a Rick and Morty fan anymore. Looking back at what I said, it was pretty stupid.
    But yeah, this comment was made before the days when the internet decided to ruin the entire show for everyone and Season 3 turned out to be a little shitty. I really dug seeing those overused "high IQ" and "ur smart cuz u leik rick and morty haha" jokes again. Don't really like how some edgy dickholes decided to just leave "die" and stuff, but that's the internet, ain't it?

    Anyways, whatever. I might consider deleting it later, but it's a time capsule so I don't fucking know.

    Paul Kempa

    The Spirit Molecule i think you got that wrong ^^
    he was just saying he doesnt think damon wouldnt agree, without any hypocrisy or similar :)

    Blundera Bluez

    @Paul Kempa thank you, friendlier stranger :>

    Tritnew

    @Blundera Bluez Yo, I agree with what you said completely. Sucks the show had to be ruined for everyone, but that's what always happens, yeah?
    Anyway, this comment I made was stupid looking back at it. It's pretty cringe honestly. But I'll keep it up 'cause it's a time capsule to a time where "ur smert if u watch rick and morteh hahaha high iq" jokes were a thing, and I was a edgelord for a while.

    Blundera Bluez

    Tritnew it’s alright man, I’ve got quite a few messages I cringe back on myself :)

    Charles Smith

    Don’t care what people say, m8.

  26. Matthew Benoit

    Fu€€ing Art !!!!! Love it

  27. Talk About Games- News and Reviews

    Great song, really love it.

  28. GreenshieldKnight

    1:47 something about that is a bit Bowie-esque to me

    boy goo

    +GreenshieldKnight I definitely see what you are getting at
