"Tame" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
Disguise this morning
Airplane passes
At the slight angle
Second one follows
Reaching no evidence
Continues to baffle her
But she's not stupid
She's just friendly
I don't know what to do
Today is up to you
Can I pass through you?
Tame, tame, tame, tame
Applause in background
Their coffee mornings
They show Bonanzas and
What to buy there
So taste of horrors in
Oh well city's hot
You fall to pieces when
I must be dreaming
I don't know what to do
Today is up to you
Can I pass through you?
And I don't know what to do
My absence is due
Can I pass, can I?

    General CommentI think the chorus might be an in-joke in the band. Damon Albarn said they were big fans of the Pixies, and the Pixies also have a song called tame. The pixies version had frank black hysterically screaming Tame repeatedly as the chorus, whereas this just has damon saying tame over and over again in a relaxed voice.

    Lyric Correction
    Clear skies this morning
    Airplane passes
    At a slight angle
    Second one follows
    Regional weather
    Continues to baffle her
    But she's not stupid
    She's just friendly

    I don't know what to do
    Today is up to you
    Can I pass through you?

    Tame, tame, tame, tame

    A blossom background and
    Coffee mornings
    The show bonanzas and
    What to buy there
    Circus of horrors in
    Orwell cities
    You fall to pieces
    I must be dreaming

    I don't know what to do
    Today is up to you
    Can I pass through you?

    And I don't know what to do
    My absence is due
    Can I pass, can I?
