Calling other sounds
You're out there on the seas
Today is dull and mild
On a stroppy little island
Of mixed up people

Did you hear the story
Of violent behaviour?
The episodes get sent around
Everyone
Then there gone

Give us sordid details
Tie them to the main sail
The drum and gun
Of estatedom
Very near
Living in magazines
Not looking for a reason
Why people stand on their own
On the scrubs in the night

Calling other sounds
You're out there on the seas
Today is dull and mild
On a stroppy little island
Of mixed up people

Some of us find
To give it all your all
Rises up the land
And nothing going to hold you down

Not going to be a victim

Oh it’s alright
Cos everything's jolly
Running up the hill
On a stroppy little island of mixed up people

    General CommentA lot of it seems to be about the tabloid media- hence the "did you hear the story of violent behavior?" and the "tell all the sordid details" and then the lines about "living in magazines". It's a bit like everyone's living to hear the latest scandal.

    General CommentI can't believe no one's commented on this song; it's so great. Well, I think it's about crime and violence in society today and how it all gets spread around with the internets and all ("the episodes get sent around").

    General Commenta music video for this song would definately feature some kind of old fashioned, grainy black-and-white-filmed circus featuring a top-hat wearing Damon Albarn conductor leading the musical intro to this song. Just listen to the rhythmn there. Of course, as with the music, the video would feature "three changes" and transition the video's mood/motif.
