"Rock It" as written by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett....
I'm walking to the something
Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
Collapse
I'm drinking too much bla bla,
Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
Fall out
I'm feeling really bla bla, I want to bla bla bla,
Collapse
And in the end it means I bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
The end

I got myself together
Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla.
Watch out
I didn't need the patience, life bla bla bla bla bla
Collapse
Don't you sit to close, or I'll bla bla bla bla bla
Break up
Stick it up your nose
Bla bla bla bla bla bla
The end

I didn't mean to do it (Rock it, rock it)
It loved me in my head (Rock it, rock it)
I tried to be a charmer, (Rock it, rock it)
But I got a bit hopeless instead (Rock it, rock it)
The world is very sexy (Rock it, rock it)
It's part of my collapse (Rock it, rock it)

I'm walking to the something (It's part of my collapse...)
Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
I'm drinking too much bla bla,
Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
Fall out
I'm feeling really bla bla, I want to bla bla bla,
Collapse
And in the end it means I bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
The end

I didn't mean to do it (Rock it, rock it)
It loved me in my head (Rock it, rock it)
I tried to be a charmer, (Rock it, rock it)
But I got a bit hopeless instead (Rock it, rock it)
The world is very sexy (Rock it, rock it)
It's part of my collapse (Rock it, rock it)

I'm walking to the something (It's part of my collapse...)
Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
I'm drinking too much bla bla,
Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
Fall out
I'm feeling really bla bla, I want to bla bla bla,
Collapse
And in the end it means I bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
The end

Rock it
Rock it
Rock it
Rock it

    My InterpretationI've thought of it as being about how celebrities don't try hard to put out music that has any actual meaning to it anymore. The lines that go with the 'blah blah blahs' are about how all music during the time is just about the same exact stuff, and that eventually the meanings fade and it just sounds like every other type of music that's around.

    I've always heard the other part as being:

    I didn't mean to do it
    It loved me in my head
    I tried to a charmer
    But got a bit hopeless instead
    The world is very sexy
    It's part of my collapse

    This part is about how the celebrities try to get out of things, like when you hear about a celebrity having an alcohol addiction or a drug problem. They claim they 'didn't mean to do it, it loved me in my head'. They 'try to be a charmer' so that people will believe them and say that they shouldn't be punished, but they just get 'a bit hopeless instead' because eventually people will realize that they aren't going to stop doing it anyway, so there's no point in letting them go free.

    'The world is very sexy' is probably about how sexual things are a main part of music nowadays, and as such, 'it's part of my collapse', the celebrity becomes one that people think is a sick or disgusting kind and they forget about them eventually.

    The 'rock it, rock it' part at the end symbolizes how, despite the scandals and issues of the celebrity world, there are still fans who love their music and are willing to 'rock it' when listening to them sing and perform.

    General Commentyeah. I can agree with cassandra rose, and say also agreeing with whoever said it earlier, I think it's about the metaphorical lobotomy of having ones brain removed by "lobotomy pop" or mindless drek created to make money and turn all these people into mindless sycophants. and about "reject false Icons". it speaks to me. false Icons can be anything from political leaders to gods and deitys to the leaders of these mindless pop empires with their style-slaves. It means think for yourself, formulate your own opinion, don't go with the masses, fitting in is not worth compromsing your principles.

    Song MeaningOk first of all i spent like a while readin all your comments on my phone :P This song is about Songs these days (well those days you know wat i mean) that the artsts put no effort into their songs (blah blah blah) the heads are zombie celebritys showing that the celebritys spend too much time on looks instead of the acual song. The statue is Pazuzu (watever i cant spell) and it has a boner NO JOKE it really dose. + one of the zombie celebritys has a hat that says i am shit

    General CommentI didn't mean to do it
    It left me in my head (there's too much debate over this line, so I'm not quite sure about it)
    I tried to be a charmer
    But got a bit hopeless instead
    The world is very sexy
    It's part of my collapse

    That's what I'm hearing.

    General Commentto me, it just sounds like someone going through the process of being celebrities. you're going for your dream, but you don't know where you're headed. you've drunkenin this lifestyle, with fake all around you. drugs and alcohol, you can't take it anymore. when you finally start to curve around, you fall further. eventually all your thoughts and experiences and drugs "lock you in your head" after you've tried to charm the world into your ways.

    then again, I'm 14.

    what exactly, do I know?

    General CommentIf not for the tagline "reject false icons", I'd say this song is about how nobody really cares what you have to say, someone's struggling with themselves/life yet no one cares enough to reach out to help them because all they hear out of them is "blah, blah, blah, blah" because everyone's too busy with their own life.

    General CommentGreat song.
    The lyrics seem sort of sloppy...but lyrics have never really been the important thing about Gorillaz music, in my opinion.

    General CommentAt the forums, alot of people've been running around changing their thoughts on the chorus. So I think a bit of a more accurate version would be:

    I didn't mean to do it,
    It lovely in my head
    I tried to be a charmer,
    But I'm all hopeless instead
    The world is very sexy,
    It's part of my collapse

    ..Yep. And about the song, it's cool and all, but like already stated- It's a bit sloppy. I've heard that it's even aired on the radio in Britain already a few times. Very cool- I love it! =D

    General Commenti believe he actually says:

    I didn't mean to do it
    It loves me in my head
