Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls

Take a gun
Or how you say
That's no way
To behave

But just as long you need the gear
So sing a song that doesn't sin
It grows
Hey, you know

Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last to get away
To some another day
Or do we know
Well we know
Doesn't seem to be complete
Are we

Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls
Are we the last living souls

Get up, get up, get up, get up

Cause all out of song
I got it down wrong
I see myself to get
An all-seeing door now
Can you take us in
The part that comin' on
The coldest man doesn't sing your song

We go to the car
I see you walk to the far
And when you get there do you see
You fit the last you need on me

Cause we're the last living souls
We're the last living souls
Yeah we're the last living souls
We're the last living souls

Kids with guns
Kids with guns
Taking over
But it won't be long
They're mesmerized
Skeletons
Kids with guns
Kids with guns
Easy does it, easy does it, they got something to say "no" to

Drinking out (is she real, is she)
Pacifier (is she real, is she)
Demon souls (is she real, is she)
Street desire (is she real, is she)
Didn't mean to (is she real, is she)
But it won't be long (is she real, is she)
Kids with guns
Kids with guns
Easy does it, easy does it, they got something to say "no" to

And they turn into monsters
Turning us into fire
Turning us into monsters
It's all desire
It's all desire
It's all desire

Drinking out
Pacifier
Sinking soul
There you are
Doesn't make side to
But it won't be long
Cause kids with guns
Kids with guns
Easy does it, easy does it, they got something to say "no" to

And they turn into monsters
Turning us into fire
Turning us into monsters
It's all desire
It's all desire
It's all desire

Is she, is she real, is she
Is she real, is she (it's real)
Is she, is she real, is she
Is she real, is she (it's real)

Is she is she real

O green world,
Don't desert me now
Bring me back to fallen town
Where someone is still alive

Fighting for something new in this
When no one needs the heart of me and I'll
Get out somewhere other than me before

(than me before)

O green world
Don't deserve me now
I'm made of you and you of me
But where are we?
Oh no

Sells to lie
Phone with talk, you stars
Suppose you
Down when you're in fast
Cause it seems so little to you

But now you're in love, you know
You know, me too
You know, me too
I hope sex and drugs rust into my self, holy
It feels holy
It feels like you're with your father in the place you love...

I need a gun to keep myself from harm
The poor people are burning in the sun
But they ain't got a chance
They ain't got a chance
I need a gun
'Cause all I do is dance
'Cause all I do is dance

I need a gun to keep myself from harm
The poor people are burning in the sun
No, they ain't got a chance
They ain't got a chance
I need a gun
'Cause all I do is dance
'Cause all I do is dance

In my backpack
I got my act right
In case you act quite difficult
And yo is so weakin'
With anger and discontent
Some are seeking and searching like me, moi

I'm a peace-loving decoy
Ready for retaliation
I change the whole occasion to a pine box six-under
Impulsive don't ask wild wonder
Orders given to me is
Strike and I'm thunder with lightning fast reflexes
On constant alert from the constant hurt
That seems limitless with no dropping pressure
Seems like everybody's out to test ya
'Til they see you brake
They can't conceal the hate that consumes you
I'm the reason why you flipped your soosa

Chill with your old lady at the tilt
I got a 90 days digit
And I'm filled with guilt
From things that I've seen
Your water's from a bottle
Mine's from a canteen
At night I hear the shots
Ring so I'm a light sleeper
The cost of life,
It seems to get cheaper
Out in the desert
With my street sweeper
The war is over
So said the speaker with the flight suit on
Maybe to him I'm just a pawn
So he can advance
Remember when I used to dance
Man, all I want to do is dance

Dance, dance, dance

I need a gun to keep myself from harm

City's breaking down on a camel's back.
They just have to go 'cause they don't know whack
So all you fill the streets it's appealing to see
You won't get out the county, 'cause you're bad and free
You've got a new horizon It's ephemeral style.
A melancholy town where we never smile.
And all I want to hear is the message beep.
My dreams, they've got to kiss, because I don't get sleep, no

Windmill, Windmill for the land.
Learn forever hand in hand
Take it all in on your stride
It is stinking, falling down
Love forever love is free
Let's turn forever you and me
Windmill, windmill for the land
Is everybody in?

Laughing gas these hazmats, fast cats,
Lining them up-a like *** cracks,
Ladies, homies, at the track
It's my chocolate attack.
****, I'm stepping in the heart of this here
Care bear bumping in the heart of this here
Watch me as I gravitate, ha ha ha
Yo, we gonna go ghost town,
This Motown, with yo sound
You're in the place
You gonna bite the dust
Can't fight with us
With yo sound, you kill the INC.
So don't stop, get it, get it
Until you're cheddar header.
Yo, watch the way I navigate, ha ha ha

Windmill, windmill for the land.
Turn forever hand in hand
Take it all in on your stride
It is stinking, falling down
Love forever love is free
Let's turn forever you and me
Windmill, windmill for the land
Is everybody in?

Don't stop, get it, get it
We are your captains in it
Steady, watch me navigate, ha ha ha
Don't stop, get it, get it
We are your captains in it
Steady, watch me navigate, ha ha ha

Summer don't know me no more
Eager man, that's all

Summer don't know me
He just let me love in my sea
Cause I do know, Lord
From you that
Just died, yeah

I saw that day
Lost my mind
Lord, I'll find
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine

Don't stop the buck when it comes
It's the dawn, you'll see

Money won't get there
Ten years passed tonight
You'll flee

If you do that
I'll be some
To find you

I saw that day
Lost my mind
Lord, I'll find
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine

I saw that day
Lost my mind
Lord, I'll find
Maybe in time
You'll want to be mine

I lost my leg like I lost my way
So no loose ends
Nothing to see me down
How are we going to work this out

Dreams aren't bad, I had turned back
I love the girl
But God only knows it's
Getting hard to see the sun coming through
I love you
But what are we going to do

Picture on the dreamer
I'll take you deeper
Down to the sleepy glow
Time is a low.
Don't you know
What are we going to do

When you go back
All the second selfless days
You're in love with him
I want to see you again
I love you
But what are we going to do

Slow it down some
No split clown bum
Your old hit sound dumb
Hold it now, crown 'I'm
Where you found them at

Got 'em 'round town
Coulda drowned in it
Woulda floated bloated

Voted sugar coated
Loaded hip shooter
Draw for the poor
Free coffee at the banks
Hit through the straw
None more for me, thanks

That blanks the raw
That dang sure stank lit
Sank passed the pit for more hardcore prank spit

Crank it on blast
Roll past front street
Blew the whole spot
Like some old *** with skunk meat

These kids is too fast
Juiced off a junk treat
Who could get looser off a crunk or a funk beat?

Something is starting today
Where did he go why you want it to be?
Well you know November has come
When it's gone away

Something is starting today
Where did he go why you want it to be?
Well you know, November has come
When it's gone away

Baha
Can you dig it like a spigot
My guess is yes you can
Like, can I kick it?
Wicked
Liquor shot
If you happy and you know it
As you clap your hands to the thick snot
Of a poet flowin'
Broke a pen and I'm in cope hymen
Dope or rhymin all worth it then
The Hope Diamond
Required off the blackmarket
Or wire tappin'
Couldn't target a jar of spit
The rapid fire spark lit
Zzzz!
A rapper bug zapper
And it don't matter after if they's a thug or a dapper
Plug yer trap or it's maximum exposure
The beast got family in numbers asking 'em for closure
Aw, send 'em a gun and tell 'em clean it
Then go get the nun who said her son didn't mean it
She wore a filled-in thong
A billabong
And said, nah, fo'realla
The Villain on a Gorilla jawn?

Something is starting today
Where did he go why you want it to be?
Well you know November has come
When it's gone away

Something is starting today
Where did he go why you want it to be?
Well you know, November has come
When it's gone away

[Repeat: x24]
All alone

Laviti caso
Due to run a mile

Snatch a piece of my wonderin'
Distant-far like yonderin'
Skin of my tooth like
Seat of my boot like
Fly in my soup like
Where's the waitress?
Can I take this, really, can I finish this?
These years and all these creatures

It's my mistake, I'll make it
J-dub to the boom now make it
Bounce-wiggle bounce-wiggle
Shakin' all them bangs out
Chemical cutthroats
Bound to blow the brain out

Cut to the brain
This ain't no game
I'll show no shame
I'll birth this blame
I'm twisted cain
I'll twist again
I'll push the blade
As plain as day

Known to what these sayers say
Known to what these doers do
It's you and who and you-know-where
We's about to take it there
We's about to make it clear
We happy or we lonesome
The long jump, the beat heart, from start to finish
Ten spoons of spinach
The soul and the spillage
The cup that runneth ovah
We turn up the o-god!

[Repeat: x12]
All alone

Close your eyes and see
When there ain't no light
All you'll ever be
Come and save the night
Cause I don't leave
When the morning comes, it doesn't
Seem to say an awful lot to me

[Repeat: x12]
All alone

Fire Coming Out of the Monkey's Head

composer: Gorillaz
Once upon a time at the foot of a great mountain,
There was a town where the people known as Happyfolk lived.
Their very existence a mystery to the rest of the world.
Obscured, as it was, by great clouds.
Here they played out their peaceful lives,
Innocent of the litany of excessive violence that was growing in the world below.
To live in harmony with the spirit of the mountain called Monkey was enough.
Then one day, Strangefolk arrived in the town.
They came in camouflage, hidden behind dark glasses, but no one noticed them.
They only saw shadows. you see, without the truth to the eyes
The happy folk were blind

Falling out of airplanes and hiding out in holes.
Waiting for the sunset to come, people going home.
Jump out from behind them and shoot them in the head.
Now everybody dancing, the dance of the dead,
The dance of the dead. the dance of the dead

In time, the Strangefolk found their way into the higher reaches of the mountain,
And it was there that they found the caves of Unimaginable Sincerity and Beauty.
By chance, they stumbled upon The Place Where All Good Souls Come to Rest.
The Strangefolk, they coveted the jewels in these caves above all things,
And soon they began to mine the mountain,
It's rich seam fuelling the chaos of their own world.

Meanwhile, down in the town, the Happyfolk slept restlessly.
Their dreams invaded by shadowy figures digging away at their souls.
Every day, people would wake and stare at the mountain.
Why was it bringing darkness into their lives?

And as the strange folk mined deeper and deeper into the mountain,
Holes began to appear,
Bringing with them a cold and bitter wind that chilled the very soul of the Monkey.
For the first time, the Happyfolk felt fearful,
For they knew that soon the monkey would stir from it's deep sleep.
Then there came a sound, distant first, that grew into castrophany so immense,
That it could be heard far away in space.
There were no screams, there was no time.
The mountain called monkey had spoken.
There was only fire, and then,
Nothing

Oh little town in USA, the time has come to see
There's nothing you believe you want
But where were you when it all came down on me?
Did you call me out?

Got off a plane to the countryside,
I drove to the mountain and holding the ground
There was crack on the corner and someone dead,
And fire coming out of the monkey's head

Don't get lost in heaven
They got locks on the gate
Don't go over the edge
You'll make a big mistake

Put me in a cab to suburbia
I just took a line but I wasn't with you
There was more of it there, when I got back home
But you had left me,you don't know my soul
You're a whole bad mistake,yeah,you're a whole one

Don't get lost in heaven
They got locks on the gate
Don't go over the edge
You'll make a big mistake

Aah

In demon days, it's cold inside
You don't get nobody, people sigh
It's so bad, lasting far, but love yourself
Hiding in a hole in there
All the glasses are too big
Bring it back, got to hold it back
To let you do that yet you don't want me back
Before it fall down, falling down falling down
Falling out to go far from the soul

Well these demon days are so cold inside
It's so hard to live, and so to survive
You can't even trust the air you breathe
Cause Mother Earth has a soul to leave
When lies become reality
You love yourself because it's easy
Pick yourself up it's a brand new day
So turn yourself round
Don't burn yourself, turn yourself
Turn yourself around to the soul

To the soul, to the soul
To the soul, to the soul
