i smiled at that bit.
but off that topic; this song (to me) speaks on conformity and the blindness that is our world.
take it how you want it, but if you know the gorillaz, it's not about lsd, or mushrooms, or weed. there maybe a reference or two, but i don't think that they intend to make it seem like it's all the hype.
in their songs they are going to be aware of the society, mostly what's unjust about it, and they are going to make it to where you have to think about it.
" the essence the basics, without that you make it. allow me to make this, child-like in nature."

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. Just because he has an American rapper, doesn't mean it's about American society. To everyone else posting, Damon Albarn was the singer and main songwriter of Blur, which are very socially aware. Look up the songs Parklife, Girls and Boys, Country Life, Best Days and Charmless Man, you will see by looking up the lyrics for those songs how socially aware this man is. So, that being said, this song is likely to be along that vein as well.

This song is obviously about the drug sunshine... that may not be the ONLY thing it's about but it is definitely one thing. Sunshine is a drug, and the chorus: I got sunshine in a bag.... duh
What do you think the Beatles song Here Comes the Sun is about when they repeat: Sunshine, sun, here we come!

WHAT I THINK IDC WHAT YOU THINK | Reviewer: nick | 6/2/10
I see the song about acid...got sunshine in a bag... sunshine is a type of acid and panaramic Beowulf has how you see on acid and no squiling remember its all in your head the acid trips can seem so really you just have to remember Its all in your head so don't tell people what's going on.... there's more but this is pointless the next person well agree or disagree I just wanted to share what I think...
Ehem... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/27/10
I think the song is about a ghost, telling the band which is trying to kill with zombie gorillas, that everything they're saying is fake, and they should continue on with their lives.
Russel will probably be killed first since he's incapacitated because the rap ghost is now free.
And 2-D is the only person who actually follows the ghosts advice...and...well...nothing tried to kill him XD
so basically the meaning of this song is, "Listen to the enemy, they use reverse phycology to much"
a deeper connection and spirituality | Reviewer: connect. | 5/26/10
their is many meanings to this song, but if you listen closely, it tells you about a deeper connection between nature and us. Something that a lot of humans miss, but is so obvious... We are all a organism, we are all alive, we are all connected even spiritually. You just need to believe, and if you believe, you will realize that their is much more to life then what you can see, hear, taste, feel and smell. Lets all help each other, be happy, think positive. Don't let YOUR feelings get in the way. The only way for us to move forward is to help each other, not hurt people around you.
think, we are all connected.
The Facts | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/25/10
The song was inspired by the 80's rock band Loverboy. The song Everybody's workn' for the weekend is the concept of the gist. I ain't happy (friday morning pay day) i'm feeln' glad got sunshine in a bag, i'm useless but not for long the future is c'mon on (weekend). Ya'll think you're such deep thinkers. LOL. The song goes on to describe the erratic thinking of a corporate junkie. Once the weekend is kicked off, he escapes his cage (office cubical). The confusion of a lost soul bounces back and forth about what he could be, or, if happiness lies in another form of who he could become. His fantasy is so real, or, his life is so fake. He forgets what's real and what is just illusion. He does this by choice because his friends are all part of this fantasy that is just a coping mechanism to deal with the mundain life that they all willingly accept.
The song is Called Clint Eastwood because he dirrects his life and others for the sake of showing you what he wants you to see, not what is.
You're all welcome.
Rhythm | Reviewer: Ben | 4/24/10
This song, for those who don't pay attention to the lyrics, is about the music enterprise being horribly corrupt, and how it has gotten to the point where they have forgotten about the rhythm, maybe not forgotten is but abused it for profit, and basically Del tha Funkee Homosapien (the man who raps the verses) is personifying himself as Rhythm and he has been freed from the corrupt grip of the music industry, he actually calls himself rhythm when he says that he is in them, being all of nature, and that you can’t change the fact that he is in everything. You can get more belief he is rhythm when he says that he is timeless and intangible. He goes on to say that he is going to stick around with Russ, the drummer of the band, and be a mentor to him and help him get the full mastery of rhythm. There is also an underlying theme of how you should download music illegally, which could explain why they name it Clint Eastwood, seeing as how Clint Eastwood was an actor who played many a role of an outlaw in the Wild West, and nowadays the Wild West outlaws are the ones who download music to screw the music industry and they’re corrupt ways. The truly brilliant aspect of this song is the fact that at the end he says that all he’s trying to do is help Russ, and even is Russ wants to tell on Del tha Funkee Homosapien for trying to convince him to do illegal acts, he can’t because everything he told him is in his head…. Try listening to the song with this thought explanation in mind.
Look | Reviewer: Theatre Queen | 4/9/10
Look, a group is a group wether they talk about things that you don't like or not. Gorillaz are a solid group and sometimes poeple don't understand there lyrics. My final word is that if you don't like the gruop keep your comments to yourself, cuz your not making the money!!!
FREE YOUR MIND | Reviewer: crsonja | 4/1/10
You're all wrong and right
It's about everything and nothing, it's about life, and more precisely , how our mind is blinded and imprisoned by stuff like work, possession etc . By extension, government, institutions etc which means OURSELVES. This is a bout freeing your mind, see the world o its globality and go back to the essence of everything, the nature, which is the only true beauty in this world, but we are blinded by so much things... It's about what some call spiritual awakening, not see thing though what's others told you, or with your eyes, but with your MIND (the third Eye for some)
(and sorry for my english, i'm human, but a french one, according to some people :p )
deeper meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/26/10
No its not about drugs. They mention one toke which is a drug reference. But that's not what the song is about I literally listened to the song and read the lyrics for hours just to figure it out and it was hard to figure out. 2-D represents the average American in this song unhappy and stuff. But with a little bit of money we fell happy for a short time. Like a quick fix. Also right now to the government he is useless but they are refering to a revolt. That's why he is unhappy but he is feeling glad.The key line in this song is " you see with your eyes, you see destrucion and demise corruption in disguise. From this fuckn enterprise. Now im sucked in your lives (to tell the truth.) Through Russell Not his muscles (not through his actions) but percussion he provides (but through is music)" saying we fan see him now cuz we dont see with our eyes we are Perceiving him as a symbol. He is saying in the end of the rap lyrics saying badically don't go blabbing to the enemy about this and remember you will be labeled a paranoid crazy person, or a conspiracy nut is what he is saying when he says its all in your head.
Founded the meanings only now | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/22/10
It's about how someone that watch the world with it's inner self ...
Basically rapping voice is Russel inner self that, after exiting, say that every guy should be watched and liked for waht he is... like Russel for the "percussion he provides"
Wtf?!? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/18/10
Who ever thinks that clint eastwood is about drugs is retarded. Itis about getting out of bad times. For those of you who think that a bag full of sunshine is drugs are also retarded. The term is used in a clint eastwood film (i forget which) to describe a Bag full of money.
Ok, Enough. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/16/10
Right, the answer.
The song, is about Del, the ghost, possessing Russel (that is Hobb's, the drummer) and appearing through him, just like in the music video.
It has nothing to do with drugs blahblahblah
They were just recording and Del came out and did the rap.
(For those of you who require an extra hand when thinking Gorillaz aren't real people, they are an animated band. So there isn't really a black drummer called Russel Hobb's possessed by a rapper called Del.)
