"Man Research (Clapper)" as written by and Damon/hewlett Albarn....
This is the breakfast club

Bring me coffee in the know
See the taffu on the send
I got sunshine, I got you, oh
There's nothing, nothing life can do oh oh oh

Yeah yeah, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Yeah yeah, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Yeah yeah, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Yeah yeah, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya

Bring me junkie in the love
He said nothing in the tongue
To kill the model from my door, oh yeah
To kill the model from my door

Yeah yeah, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Yeah yeah, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Yeah yeah, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Yeah yeah, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya

To kill the model from my door, oh yeah
To kill the model from my door
From my door
From my door
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

    General CommentMetal Insanity does sound right, considering the WAY he sings the song.

    Lyric CorrectionI laughed as I read "see the taffu on the send."

    These lyrics are not correct as "taffu" is not a word.

    The word that should be there instead is "Tafil" which is a type of prescription tranquillizing drug (like Xanax).

    I also think the word "send" in that line is "sand" so the line is:
    "I see the Tafil on the sand"

    because the next line is, "I got sunshine, I got you"
    The two lines together suggesting he's laying in an environment with lots of sun such as the a beach, or a desert.

    The word "model" is also incorrect, should be male (as others have suggested.)

    Also in the second chorus, after he goes "yayayayayaya,"
    it then goes, "lover, lover, lover, lover, lover -la, lover -la, lover -la-la-la..."
    just an extra word that may suggest some meaning, who knows.

    General CommentIt's could be about evolution. Why? The title mostly. The song could be about a man murdering his wife, but who knows.

    General CommentIt's about mental insanity. There's little real meaning to the lyrics themselves, but through the tone of his singing, Damon Albarn communicates insanity and a sense of paranoia which leads to aggression or full on dementia from verse to verse: "To kill the model from my door" being the peak of the dementia. I'm not saying i'm a psychologist or know anything about psychology, but I make this observation as it fits my own parallel experience with insanity.

    General CommentI love this song. its one of the best from Gorillaz. one question though:
    how the hell can everybody hear "you're the hero" in the chorus?! all i hear is "you....ohhh".

    General Commenti think this song is talking about some kind of sci-fi human research facility, where they feed the humans certain foods and medications to test their health and mental stability.

    "This is a breakfast club!!": With the wacky voice saying that at the begining, it sounds like maybe the specimens in the facility have been brainwashed into thinking that their members of a special club of some sort, and have no idea that they are specimens...


    "bring me coffee in the know
    see the taffu on the send
    i got sunshine, i got you
    there’s nothing, nothing life can do
    bring me junkie in the love
    he said nothing in the tongue": this sounds like its going into the mind of one of these specimens and what they are thinking about as they are taken through the stages of the day...

    "to kill the model from my door": This is a stretch, but this might be reffering to when certain specimens aren't adequete enough, they give them drugs that kill them immediately so they dont suffer any pain...

    Man Research, I think, reffers to the research that is being done on the specimens...

    ...This is just what I think of when I hear the song. It's kinda weird, but whatever...
