There were blue skies in my city today
Everything was sinking
Said snow would come on Sunday
The old school was due and the traffic grew
Upon the Westway
Where I stood watching comets lonesome trails
Shining up above me the jet fuel it fell
Down to earth where the money always comes first
And the sirens sing
Bring us the day they switch off the machines
'Cause men in yellow jackets putting adverts inside my dreams
An automated song and the whole world gone
Fallen under the spell of the distance between us when we communicate
Still picking up shortwave
Somewhere they're out in space
It depends how you're wired when the night's on fire
Under the Westway
Now it's magic arrows hitting the bull
Doing one eighty still standing at last call
When the flags coming down
And the Last Post sounds
Just like a love song
For the way I feel about you
Paradise not lost it's in you
On a permanent basis I apologize
But I am going to sing
Hallelujah
Sing it out loud and sing it to you
Am I lost out at sea
'Til a tide wash me up off the Westway

There were blue skies in my city today
Everything was sinking
Said snow would come on Sunday
The old school was due and the traffic grew
Upon the Westway
Where I stood watching comets lonesome trails
Shining up above me the jet fuel it fell
Down to earth where the money always comes first
And the sirens sing

Bring us the day they switch off the machines
'Cause men in yellow jackets putting adverts inside my dreams
An automated song and the whole world gone
Fallen under the spell of the distance between us when we communicate
Still picking up shortwave
Somewhere they're out in space
It depends how you're wired when the night's on fire
Under the Westway

Now it's magic arrows hitting the bull
Doing one eighty still standing at last call
When the flags coming down
And the Last Post sounds
Just like a love song
For the way I feel about you
Paradise not lost it's in you
On a permanent basis I apologize
But I am going to sing

Hallelujah
Sing it out loud and sing it to you
Am I lost out at sea
'Til a tide wash me up off the Westway

There were blue skies in my city today
Ev'rything was sinking
Said snow would come on Sunday
The old school was due
and the traffic grew
Upon the Westway
Where I stood watching comets lonesome trails
Shining up above me the jet fuel it fell
Down to earth where the money always comes first
And the sirens sing
Bring us the day they switch off the machines
Cos men in yellow jackets putting adverts inside my dreams
An automated song and the whole world gone
Fallen under the spell of the distance
between us when we communicate
Still picking up shortwave
Somewhere they're out in space
It depends how you're wired
when the night's on fire
Under the Westway
Now it's magic arrows hitting the bull
Doing one-eighty still standing at last call
When the flags coming down
And the last post sounds
Just like a love song
For the way I feel about you
Paradise not lost it's in you
On a permanent basis
I apologise
But I am going to sing
Hallelujah
Sing it out loud and sing it to you
Am I lost out at sea
‘Til a tide wash me up off the Westway

When my daughter was 6, her class had a little lip sync competition going. The other kids all brought in their current pop radio hit staples, my daughter sang this song. I don't think the other children or teacher new what to make of this. She didn't win the competition, but everyone reading this comment knows she really did. So proud.

Wow. Just wow. An old soul she must be. I reckon she'll rediscover and deeper connect to this song as she goes through her (no doubt glorious) life. This might just be the most powerfully human song Damon has ever written. And that's saying A LOT as you know. And indeed... your daughter won that competition by lenghts.

As am I… 🖤

im so annoyed at myself that i only got into these guys recently - if they never tour again and i missed their last shows i'll be so sad

porridgeandbananas

Not missed a concert of theirs here in Scotland since 1993, will be gutted if I don't see another.

@Matthew Corcoran I know im a bit late for this but, Damon Albarn's career didnt end when he left blur. He had a "back up" plan called Gorillaz. Really good band too.

@Club Astro Transcendental Motor Oh, I am not sure either. I think I remember reading it in a Q magazine or something years ago.

Todd B Graham wasn’t really sacked. Was he? I understood that he simply stopped showing up for rehearsals and recording session since he had recently gotten sober and there was a lot of cocaine and alcohol indulgence, specially by Dave and Alex.

I caught them on their Think Tank tour. Unfortunately, that was after Graham got sacked. He is one of my top 5 guitarists, so it sucked not seeing him perform. However, it was still a great show and got me into Wolf Parade since they were the openers.

Somehow the exquisite happiness and unbearable sadness of life simultaneously encapsulated in a song. Unbearably beautiful.
