"Mellow Song" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
I left my street
I'm a guillotine
Pulling away
In my machine
Where have I been, now
Not you

Shooting stars in my left arm
An alcohol low
Giving away time to Casio
Sun is slow
I got soul

Is this where I'm going to
We'll see
We'll see
We'll see

I kill this sleep
I'm the man in the moon
Walking on sand on my home high noon
In love with the moon, love you

'Cause I lift my street
I'm a guillotine
Pull it away
In my machine
Forget where I've been before
Forget you

Is this where I'm going to
We'll see
We'll see
We'll see

    General CommentI think this is about getting high to forget a breakup. I'm not one of those people who thinks every song is about drugs, but look at some of the lyrics: "Shooting stars in my left arm" "I'm the man in the moon" Forget where I've been before; Forget you."

    General CommentThis song's effect changes for me depending on location. I feel uneasy if I'm on a walk, but unusually relaxed if I'm laying flat. One of my favorites.

    General Comment"Shooting stars in my left arm
