"Some Kind Of Nature" as written by Lou Reed, Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett....
Some kind of nature
Some kind of soul
Some kind of mixture
Some kind of goal
Some kind of majesty
Some chemical load

Some kind of metal made up from glue
Some kind of plastic I could wrap around you

The needy eat man-mades
They wear phony clothes
They sit with our picture up until they grow old

Some kind of nature
Some kind of soul
Some kind of mixture
Some kind of goal
Some kind of majesty
Some chemical load

Well, me, I like plastics and digital foils
Could wrap up the sound and protect the girls
From the spiritual poison we expel at night
Like phony clothes but I really like might

Some kind of nature
Some kind of nature
Some kind of soul
Come from within us
Oh Lord, forgive me
Some kind of mixture
Some kind of gold
It's got to come and find us
All we are is dust

Some kind of metal made up from glue
Some kind of plastic I could wrap around you
The needy eat man-mades
They wear phony clothes
They sit with our picture up until they grow old

Some kind of nature
Some kind of nature
Some kind of soul
Come from within us
Oh Lord, forgive me
Some kind of mixture
Some kind of gold
It's got to come and find us
All we are is dust

    General CommentFrom the iTunes special edition release with lyrics:

    "Some kind of nature some kind of soul
    some kind of mixture some
    kind of goal
    some kind of majesty some
    chemical load

    Some kind of metal made up from glue
    some kind of plastic I can wrap
    around you
    The needy eat man mades they wear
    phony clothes
    they sit with barbiturates until they
    grow old

    Some kind of nature some kind of soul
    some kind of mixture some
    kind of goal
    some kind of majesty some
    chemical load

    Well me I love plastics and
    digital foils
    to wrap up the sound and
    protect the girls
    from the spiritual poison we expel
    at night
    like phony clothes but I really
    like might

    Some kind of nature, some kind of
    nature, some kind of soul
    come forth within us
    oh lord forgive me
    some kind of mixture some
    kind of goal
    it's gonna come and find us
    all we are is stars

    Some kind of metal made up from glue
    some kind of plastic I can wrap
    around you
    The needy eat man mades they wear
    phony clothes
    they sit with barbiturates until they
    grow old

    Some kind of nature, some kind of
    nature, some kind of soul
    come forth within us
    oh lord forgive me
    some kind of mixture some
    kind of goal
    it's gonna come and find us
    all we are is stars"

    My OpinionWhen I first got this album, I listened to it in my car and this whole album and realized that it's very post-robotic apocalyptic kind of thing. I really enjoyed that and when I heard this song, it created an image in my mind of something that I thought was really spot-on. I pictured this endless landfill and someone just going through and picking up things that represent all of the things that he mentions (i.e gold, plastic to wrap around you, nature, soul). I know that's probably not what the writer is going for, but I thought it was a neat interpretation. I really enjoy this album.

    General CommentWe've escaped the horrors of the GlitterFreeze and stumbled numbly back into the strange civilization of the Plastics.

    This area, though, is a bit of a slum, a filthy warren of drugged up hole-dwellers. We see the hivelike activity of the beings here...some kind of nature...very strange, but definitely with it's own twisted reason. Drawing back our gaze a bit, one can even fancy seeing each being glimmer like a star - a diamond cast randomly over frayed black velvet.

    There may even be some kind of beauty...some kind of gold here. In fact there is a lovely hill just over in the distance...

    General Commentcorrections?

    Lou Reed:

    Some kind of nature
    Some kind of soul
    Some kind of mixture
    Some kind of gold
    Some kind of majesty
    Some chemical load

    Some kind of metal made up from glue
    Some kind of plastic I could wrap around you
    The(I don't know what he says here, but it wasn't that)man-made's, they wear phony clothes
    They sit with barbiturates and filled with gold

    2D:

    Some kind of nature
    Some kind of soul
    Some kind of mixture
    Some kind of gold
    Some kind of majesty
    Some chemical load

    Lou Reed:

    Well near the plastics
    And digital foils
    Could wrap up the sound
    And protect the girls
    From the spiritual poison
    We expel at night
    Like phony clothes, but
    I really like my-

    Some kind of nature (some kind of nature, some kind of soul)
    Come forth within us
    Oh, Lord, forgive me (some kind of mixture, some kind of gold)
    It's gonna come and find us
    All we are is stars

    Some kind of metal made up from glue
    Some kind of plastic I could wrap around you
    The(?)man-made's, they wear phony clothes
    They sit with barbiturates and filled with gold

    Some kind of nature (some kind of nature, some kind of soul)
    Comes forth within us
    Oh, Lord, forgive me (some kind of mixture, some kind of gold)
    It's gonna come and find us
    All we are is stars

    General CommentMy favourite song alongside pirate jet probably. It is neither Happy nor sad but sends a melancholic and sarcastic message. Too bad I'm probably the only one who thinks of it like this.

    General Commentespecially with what MissScarletMae said about mayonnaise, and flannelboard making reference to condoms (which I do think that passage is about), i'm more convinced than ever the song is about cum
    "some kind of mixture/chemical load/some kind of goal"
    i think its about cum and its place in the world today, you know and
    if we're becoming gradually and gradually distanced from nature, what about the most natural parts of us? etc.

    regardless, its a great song, but that was the impression that i got

    General Commentto me, this is about the kind of fake "nature" we have created that we live in.

    General Comment"All we are is stars" sounds like it could also be "All we are is dust"

    "The(?)man-made's, they wear phony clothes. They sit with barbiturates and filled with gold" could be "The needy eat (mayonnaise?), they wear phony clothes. They sit with barbiturate until they grow o-o-o-o-old"

    Also one of the times near the end when 2d says "some kind of soul" sounds like it says "some kind of stone"...

    General CommentThis song is so well done, I love 2D in it. This is definitely one of the songs from the album that needs a music video to advance the story.
