"Ernold Same" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
Ernold Same awoke from the same dream
In the same bed at the same time
Looked in the same mirror
Made the same frown
And felt the same way he did every day,
Then Ernold Same caught the same train
At the same station, sat in the same seat
With the same nasty stain
Next to him the same old what's his name
On his way to the same place to do the same thing
Again and againâ?¦ poor old Ernold Same.

Oh Ernold Same,
His world stays the same,
Today will always be tomorrow,
Poor old Ernold Same,
He's getting that feeling once again,
Nothing will change tomorrow.

    My Opiniontalking about average joe this song was, talk about doing the same thing waking up everyday in the morning taking breakfast and coffee, go to work being paid to pay your credit card and mortgage. just being a robot in the society.

    General CommentThis is a great song. It explores the same themes as starshapped.

    I wish Damon Albarn wrote some more ballads. He is an amazing musician and also a great lyricist. He got a load of stick around this time for his third person character writing which may of resulted in him dropping the ballads, which is a crying shame.
