"Battlesong" as written by Teren Delvon Jones and Daniel M. Nakamura....
Interplanetary advisaries battling for supremicy
Sounds like a good way to build up my infamy
Soon as automator sent for me
He headed over to receive our registration forms from the galactic embassy
'Yes may I help you?'
Remember me?
To escape a global panic we had to intercede
'Oh, you're here for the battleforms?'
Yeah, can we get them for free?
'I'm afraid not, you'll have to pay the intrance fee.'
It was worth a try
When we first arrived on Mercury
Gravity adjustment was a must an
Step up contestant
Number 12 I was 13
He started bursting
Ammunition that was'nt working
His rudimentary technical abilities couldn't kill me
Knocked me for a loop, but I could still breathe
He had the crowd going by appearance
Here comes the anticipated interference from his squad and gods
I bust back with an onslaught of hydrothermiclyde
To burn their third eye
Tho outnumbered I come wit heat
And trigger a massive explosion to the beat
They hit me with compressed air left my chest bare
My sonic stun gun takes em out by the next snare

(Blowin' my mind)

We won the bout
Just as the oxygen tanks were runnin out
So we're back to the ship
Pull a map from our blip
Manipulate the cursor
Recharge our essentals
Set the coordanants then flow
Through a trillion miles of space
With style and grace
Next stop Pluto to rock these new flows
Atmosphere, methane
Be strategic like a chess game
Leave this emcee with chest pains
I had to battle a shadow in his black light form
He dazzled me, adding three points to his score
Engulfed the microphone with darkness added three more
The panel started to roar
I had to find the core of his power
He streached his text, causing me to blackout
It took my dat out
I couldn't back out
It took out the sound man
I'm takin' a poundin
I bust out an a cappella that's astoundin
Project a unibeam through his spleen
Pulled out my x-ray cannon to disinigrate the phantom
Its night finite cell structure ruptured
His form began to bust up into clustas
Shadowy masses spread to the greater darkness of outer space
Now I'm placed first among artists

(Blowin my mind)
(Blowin my mind)

Serve due
More space travel, Computer
'Yes Deltron'
What have you?
Next destination?
'The colony of Cecilia on [Arthgolano]'
This is apealin
Hyperspace
With mic in place
We was off
Breathin frost in the void
Thinkin what if we are lost
Ha! Entertaining ignorant thought
Land ho!!
Cecilia, we entered the port
Fill out a few forms then we meet our chalanga
Named Q-zar
'No matter who you are I'll handle ya!!'
He's a real charmer
I threw on my plasteel armor
He wants to absorb all the talents I worked so hard for
A biter hard core
I busted a fiew shots and opened him like a car door
He was a quadraped, four arms
He hit me with four four arms full of bronze
I said "Automator play the song"
(you got it)
It was the theme
Made a slight alteration in my scheme
Set him up with a comition beam
With his double team
Leaned toward his dome piece
Seremed the back of his neck
With a cranial disruption syphon
Squeezed out his brain like juice
Like a python

(Blowin' my mind)

    General CommentYES, Del did vocals for Clint Eastwood, but do not get this album confused with anything gorillas. Dan the Automator and Del hooked up to make a concept album called Deltron 3030. This album predicts what life would be like living in the year 3030. Dan the Automator was the perfect producer because of his experience with Kool kieths " Dr.Octagon". This song is about Del traveling through out the galaxy in order to "battle" different MC's. In the year 3030 rap battling is a little different than today's rap battle.

    General CommentUh, yea. This isnt Gorillaz. This is Deltron 3030, a kind of side project Del The Funkee Homosapien did a few years back. Wrong artist.

    General CommentWhile this isn't a Gorillaz song, Damon Albarn does back-up vocals, so it's easy to see how this song got put in the wrong place.

    General CommentNo, this isn't a Gorillaz song, it's Deltron 3030, completely different artist, a colaborration between Del tha Funky Homosapien, Dan the Automator, and Kid Koala, Gorillaz were never involved. Damon Albarn did backing vocals on a coupla songs, but that's all.

    General CommentGirdag is right about the collaboration. And this is Deltron 3030 not Gorillaz.

    However Del did rap vocals on "Clint Eastwood" and 'Rock the House" for Gorillaz Kid Koala did some turntablism for them and Dan the Automator produced some of the Gorillaz' songs. So I can see how this mistake coulda been made.

    General CommentI think this song is a metaphor for free style battles as well as a story of Deltron Zero flying around the galaxy and fighting for money.

    I love how the next song on the CD (Love Story) is a direct continuation of this one with a totaly different theme.
