"Happy Landfill" as written by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett....
The feeling then gets to the brain
It means you got it coming and you ain't got a chain
Their only attire is a typical vice
But if it gets too well, well, you ain't being nice, no

So follow the lines ?til they tear up your eyes
You won't be even seeing if you ain't growing lies
They've bought all the shit that should never be sold
They put a gun above it and a narrow behold

We are the happy landfill
We are the happy landfill
Alright

The feeling then gets to the brain
It means you got it coming and you ain't got a chain
Their only attire is a typical vice
But if it gets too well, well, you ain't being nice, no

So follow the lines ?til they tear up your eyes
You won't be even seeing if you ain't growing lies
They've bought all the shit that should never be sold
(We are the happy landfill)
They put a gun above it and a narrow behold
(We are the happy landfill)
Alright

    General CommentIt means you got it coming and you ain't got a chain

    Chain could mean something like a weapon, A chain can be a weapon..

    Their only attire

    The clothe you buy are just clothe...


    But if it gets you well, well you ain't being nice, no

    If buying stuff makes you feel good, then your..?

    So follow the lives
    Till they cut up your eyes

    Follow what other people are doing, and they ...?

    You won't be even seeing if you ain't growing lies

    Everyone lies, If you havent, Then something bad has happen to you. (Ex. Someone stabs your eyes)

    Then bought all the shit
    That should never be sold

    You bought useless shit that you dont need, And that shouldnt even be sold..

    They put a gun above it and a narrow behold

    You dont want it anymore (the shit you baught) So you use it as target pratice

    We are the happy landfill
    We are the happy landfill

    Its landfill because you threw it away, Its now at a landfill..




    Just what it seems to a hardcore Gorillaz fan..

    General CommentMan i cant beleive no one has posted a comment for this awsomely wierd song, apart from u CrashBangOuch. Hrmm i believe this song is about society's ignorance towards the wastes and problems we cause in order to get what we want. Whether it be consumables, uselss junk and so on. But still there are lines like "they put a gun above it, a narrow behold" that confuse me... Meh. Peace out!!

    General Comment"Demon Days" was almost called "Happy Landfill" after this song, but they couldn't find a good way to get Happy Landfill onto the album, so...it's Demon Days instead. True fact.

    Awesome song.
