Gorillaz are an English virtual band created in 1998 by musician Damon Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett; the band's members — 2-D (lead vocals, keyboards), Murdoc Niccals (bass), Noodle (lead guitar, backing vocals) and Russel Hobbs (drums, percussion) — are cartoon characters who do not represent any actual people.
- The world is spinning too fast,
I'm buying lead Nike shoes,
to keep myself tethered to the days I tried to lose.
- There's a monkey in the jungle, watching a vapor trail
Caught up in the conflict between his brain and his tail.
- I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad,
I got sunshine in a bag,
I'm useless, but not for long,
The future is coming on.
