"Out of Body" as written by and Imani Voshana Damon Albarn....
Pipe down, pipe down, pipe down, pipe down, pipe down
We're here tonight for a very special offering
An offering of our spirits this evening in unison
But first a word of instruction

Hello, hello
Please leave all your belongings at the door
You can sit or stand, we can take a vote
And just tiptoe to the center of the circle
While we unveil the ropes
Still a little room left to hang your clothes
Some of us are new here, we'll take it slow
Ready, set, go

I lock hands with yours
We dive into the floor
When we reach the core
Then we stomp some more
I lock hands with yours
And then we dive down into the floor
Seven thousand miles 'till we reach the core
And then we circle back and we stomp some more
Got it?

It's just like that
You promise her your life, then you turn your back
You glide across the space, and diagonal past
Then you kick, and you jump, and you arch your back
You move your hips and your arms like a cat
Spin three times, and you're back where you're at
Does anybody catch what this is about?
No? Well, work it out

Out of body from morning to night
Dance low, pat, and I'm feeling alright
Out of body from morning to night
Dance low, pat, and I'm feeling alright
Out of body from morning to night
Dance low, pat, and I'm feeling alright
Out of body from morning to night
Dance low, pat, and I'm feeling alright

Okay
Slide like a lizard, bark with the crowd
Eyes dilated, dark to the grass
Then when you find you're in bits, blow your nuts to a puzzle
Keep it flowing like the rivers do
You gotta pay attention to the motion of the fish
Stay within the school or you're surely gonna miss
And if you lose your way, it's a cold black abyss
Don't take the chance, not worth the risk

Out of body from morning to night
Dance low, pat, and I'm feeling alright
Out of body from morning to night
Dance low, pat, and I'm feeling alright
Out of body from morning to night
Dance low, pat, and I'm feeling alright
Out of body from morning to night
Dance low, pat, and I'm feeling alright

Who knows?
There's always stains on what's real and true?
Tonight is a special, special occasion
And all that's left for us to do, is move

Ooh, I, I
Where am I going?
What am I doing?
I, I'm alive
Alive
I cannot fly
I'm, I'm so alive
I'm so, I'm so high

(Everybody)
Everybody says I'm nice when I drink
I feel better when I don't need that
Everybody got the fool's defence
(But that's just no thing)
Everybody says that I'm off
It ain't that I'm partyin', I'm drinkin' it up
Can I tell you what the chance of that tonight
(Dance low, pat, and I'm feeling alright)

    My InterpretationI think it's literally about going underground to survive a nuclear war, disguised as a rave song. Or it's from the point of view of someone dissociating and imagining they're at a club in order to keep going through a hellish situation. The dance moves are about keeping in line and coordinating with the group to make it to a safe spot
