"History" as written by and Paul Simonon Damon Albarn....
Take, take, take, take…
Take what you will and then please be on your way
But I have nothing to lose, so you have nothing to gain
Were we going along or just going alone?
And I can’t bare the thought of this now known

And you can say what you will, I just don’t get what you say
I see you’re going to go - “hell yes you’re going away!”
Slamming the doors and saying things they don’t mean
I bet the feelings will change as soon as she leaves

But she thinks she’s right and he knows he’s wrong
Yet they argue all night still nothing is solved
It all seems pointless, can’t we stop this?
Incessant Madness!

Get up, get up!! And this won’t wait for tomorrow
Fist up, it’s up, man I don’t want it borrowed
What rhymes with that I’ll write it down on paper…
Cuz I don’t like owing people favors.

Wait for the thrill and will it still come your way?
Naw man, you’ve gotta be sure of every step that you take.
If you’re the one in the rough or from Sierra Leone.
I said the difference is null you’re are all on your own.

Shake on the deal so you can both walk away
You’ve got to savor the kill, so you can flavor your breaks.
And I have said it before and I don’t need this dress
When worse comes to worse is when we’re all at our best

She’s right, and he knows he’s wrong
Yet they argue all night, nothing’s is solved
It all seems pointless, can’t we stop this?
Incessant madness!

Get up, get up!! This won’t wait for tomorrow.
Fist up, it’s up, man I don’t want it borrowed.
With lies like that you’d write it down in papers
Cuz I don’t like owing people favors…
but that’s cool…

But oh won’t you…
Get up, get up!! This won’t wait for tomorrow.
Fist up, it’s up, man I don’t want it borrowed.
Get up, get up!! This won’t wait for tomorrow.
Fist up, it’s up, man I don’t want it borrowed! oh no…
