"End of a Century" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
She says there's ants in the carpet
Dirty little monsters
Eating all the morsels
Picking up the rubbish
Give her effervescence
She needs a little sparkle
Good morning TV
You're looking so healthy

We all say "don't want to be alone"
We wear the same clothes 'cause we feel the same
We kiss with dry lips when we say goodnight
End of a century, oh, it's nothing special

Sex on the TV
Everybody's at it
The mind gets dirty
As you get closer to thirty
He gives her a cuddle
Glowing in a huddle
Good night TV
You're all made up
And you're looking like me

We all say "don't want to be alone"
We wear the same clothes 'cause we feel the same
We kiss with dry lips when we say goodnight
End of a century, oh, it's nothing special

Can you eat her, yes you can

We all say "don't want to be alone"
We wear the same clothes 'cause we feel the same
We kiss with dry lips when we say goodnight
End of a century, oh, it's nothing special

We all say "don't want to be alone"
We wear the same clothes 'cause we feel the same
We kiss with dry lips when we say goodnight
End of a century, oh, it's nothing special

Oh, end of a century, oh, it's nothing special

    General Commentthis is indeed a great song. to me, this song is about passing from one era to the next. "we wear the same clothes 'cos we feel the same", meaning that you try to think to yourself that your time is still around. i can imagine this is how damon felt entering the 00's and having the 90's britpop scene vanish into uncoolness. of course blur dealt with that well - it's oasis that are refusing to evolve and adapt

    General Commentthis song is one of those tracks that defined britpop for me... along with suede's "metal mickey" and oasis' "champagne supernova"

    General Commentphilpy1999 are you joking? The TV reference is clearly about how TV plays such a large part in our culture and how people always start and end their day watching it i.e. the Good morning TV and the good night TV lines. I think there's also a bit more than that but that's good for a starter! It's also a good way to signify the start and end of the song

    General CommentI have a question for you guys, cause it is bugging me. What is actually meant by "Can you eat her, yes you can"? Because I have a dirty mind, all I can think of is that it is a reference to cunnilingus.

    General Commenti.am.me - yes, Damon Albarn is the singer in blur and Gorillaz, and their new album's great.

    This song is great, bit of a nostalgia trip too. The golden days of britpop.
