what it really means | Reviewer: the true fan of it all | 6/5/11
I think that danny boy got most of it down pat yes danny its not about some stupid suicide attempt... its just the plane fact that some people do not know what they are listing too lol I mean thats one of the reasons they made this song to show u how blind u really are! Not only does it gives a story like what danny said but it is sending us a message. ok like when he said that the company (oh ya exuse my spelling its not the best thing i have down pat lol)was runeing 2-D's life and messing up his life it was also telling us to picture this story as if it was our own. the company stands for today today media crap that is sucking us into its little trap if u can catch what im trying to say. see they are useing the gorillaz story to show u what is happing in our own world today. And fill good inc was a good one too and if im not misstaking that is the company he was talking about. but to get the real full meaning of it all u really need to go to the fan site and read up on the story....oh ya and the reson u may think its about drugs is because 2d is on drugs constanly because murdoc beats him up constanly.
Mind F**k? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/6/11
Why cant the song just be a song. Or maybe they made a song like this because they know people are going to argue over the internet at other people who theyd probably meet over the meaning? They couldve made it just so they could mind screw everyone because there isnt any meaning at all! Its just to start the crap where people start insulting each other over the stupid internet. God people just haave to have a meaning for everything single thing they do, no random crap any where. Grow up
The Videos | Reviewer: DannyBoy | 5/16/11
Havent ya'll even seen the vids? Okay, for one, its not about suicide! The whole story that the Gorillaz are making is that an evil company is taking over the world, and that they are trting to get aeay from it and to fight it. In this song, he says "Im not happy" Because the company is destroying his family and friends life, but "I'm feeling glad" because he's the one that could escape. "I got sunshine" the power to beat the company. "In a bag" because he carries it with him. "I'm useless" because he hasnt helped his friends. "But not for long, the future is comin on" which is forshadowing.

these kinds of songs are perfect examples of wat ppl call witch language.. listen to the song when ur hella stoned and youll get the point becuz youll be in ur subconcious state of mind and youll be able to get some of the meaning... this video explains more http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Otti-82jEAc
Creation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/11/11
I always thought that it was about god and creation fighting over the world. The first rap verse is Satan's point of view, while the second is about God...? Riiiight?
First verse: "someone let me out of my cage"
Second verse: "I brought all tbis so YOU can survive... When law is lawless"
... Think about it
BTW I was reading the other comments, I think 90% were fucking spammers looking for someone to fuck around with

random thoughts in his head | Reviewer: bubble buster | 5/6/11
The lyrics don't always imply some direct message. Sometimes when guys put togehter a beat and like the music, they'll just dump a bunch of words on top of the music because the masses accept music more when there are lyrics. The lyrics still have meaning but instead of solving for what you think he's trying to say, you're better off trying to solve what storms are brewing in his mind and how he thinks. Think of it like an abstract painting - a bunch of brush strokes came togehter to make something people can relate to. But even the artist doesn't know what he or she is trying to convey. The sentences are just impulses of emmotions that came out of what the lyricist was feeling or thinking at that particular moment. If the artist tries to manipulate what came out and make the lyrics' message easy for the audience then the song becomes too generic. If it was country or bubblegum pop the audience expects lyrics to make sense and be about relationships or something. If the song stimulates something in you and keeps you guessing then this is what makes bands like Gorillaz stand out from the rest. Plus it forces you to listen to the song over and over again.
NWO | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/29/11
its about the new world order thats coming.. "finally someone let me out of my cage" ..refering to satan. "so you can survive when law is lawless" ..martial law. ..most rap songs these days are about gettin "dirty money" dirty money is is the devils money. check out drake and jay-z's illuminati song on youtube.
expansion | Reviewer: vulgus_necare | 4/28/11
I feel like this song has more to do with Consciousness expansion and the subconscious. It appears to me that he is more into being a sort of spiritual guide. Lines like:
"...Finally someone let me out of my cage
Now, time for me is nothing cos I'm counting no age
Now I couldn't be there
Now you shouldn't be scared
I'm good at repairs
And I'm under each snare
Bet you didn't think so I command you to
Look I'll make it all manageable..."
I've got more examples but it would take to long, email me if you want to discuss.
It's about suicide | Reviewer: Dan | 4/26/11
The song is about suicide. That's why he says, "I ain't happy, I'm feelin' glad". The rap verses is supposed to be the voice in the back of his head and his "sunshine in a bad" is symbolism for the idea of suicide. I'm not sure if this is confirmed but it seems like a likely meaning.
Also, I am thinking it could be about drugs as well. That other guy's explanation made a lot of sense. It's really all depends on how you think of it, really.
Lyrics ~ | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/9/10
Guys, he IS happy. "I'm happy, feeling glad," not "I ain't happy, feeling glad." I know the song is pretty surreal, but even so, how does the latter begin to make sense? I thought it was well-known what the right lyrics are.
BTW: wonderful song. Del was my favourite, next to Murdoc :3
I agree | Reviewer: Why the hell do you want my name? | 11/15/10
I agree with the lecturing guy but anyways I also agree with the guy who says it's about drugs. That's the first thought that came into my head when I heard this song... Drugs... Especially the I ain't happy I'm feeling glad I got dunshine in a bag I'm useless but not for long the future is comin on part... Not that I would know though... Just kidding! But seriously it makes sense. And like sometimes people do drugs when they're depressed... I'm useles but not for long... And... I ain't happy... So that's my guess too. I love gorillaz!
fast and bulbous | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/4/10
"To what the poster who posted the deaper meaning comment, why does 2D represent the average American? Are you so arrogant as a nation that you fail to see or are too ignorant to do you homework, that Damon Albarn, the guy who created the Gorillaz and sings the chorus, is British."
Are you so fucking arrogant and stupid as an individual that you can't differentiate between an individual and an entire nation of 300 million people? I read plenty of idiotic comments from people all over the world on the internet, and never once have I felt the need to lecture and trash an entire country just because one village idiot that happened to be from that country said something stupid. And you have the nerve to talk about arrogance? Take a look in the mirror. And go to the dentist.
what it really is | Reviewer: John | 9/13/10
Acid, its a british guy, its about a corporate worker getting into the weekend.....hmmm some very good points behind them and they actually all work together to the truth behind the song....its political....acid opens ur mind to the possability of conspiricies and some r true...him being british would make sense cause they r fucked up worse then us and we r headed in the same direction..and being about a corporate guy ehhh maybe something corporate in it but about the evil corporate empire that is out to mental destroy and brainwash the general populose...i probable wont b back to read responses so email me firstname.lastname@example.org
acid? | Reviewer: Samantha | 7/31/10
Bit of a long shot guess, but to me it sounds like this song could bea little bit about lsd... Especialy "I aint happy, I'm feeling glad i've got SUNSHINE in a bag, I'm useless but not forlong, the future is coming on"
Too much of the lyrics in this song are things you discover or think about while on acid lol but yea... I could be way off idk what this song is about.
Not so clear... | Reviewer: Sara | 7/29/10
I know people have very strong opinions about this song but here is something to consider. The writer mostlikely had a particular situation or issue in mind when composing these lyrics and noone can know exactly what that was. But part of the true art in lyrics is leaving them open to fit a particular thought that each listener may have so that you relate on certain feelings evan if they dont come from the exact same situation. Perhaps there is an overall message but thats not necesarily the idea.
