"Starshaped" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
Wash with new soap, behind the collar
Keeps a clean mental state
Don't usually bother, in cold weather
But, still, I'm getting into work late

And I don't need the practice

I've been making plans (for the future)
Become an unconscious man (all for the good)
I feel so unnecessary
(We don't think so, you seem star shaped)

Have a couple at the weekend
Keeps up camaraderie
And my mind boggles in the middle
At the possibilities

And I don't need the practice

I've been making plans (for the future)
Become an unconscious man (all for the good)
I feel so unnecessary
(We don't think so, you seem star shaped)

And I've been making plans (for the future)
Become an unconscious man (all for the good)
I feel so unnecessary
(We don't think so, you seem star shaped)

I wash with new soap, behind the collar
Helps keep down the laundry
And, now I bother in cold weather
Because it cleans me mentally

And I really don't need the practice

I've been making plans (for the future)
Become an unconscious man (all for the good)
I feel so unnecessary
(We don't think so, you seem star shaped)

I've been making plans (for the future)
Become an unconscious man (all for the good)
I feel so unnecessary
(We don't think so, you seem star shaped)

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite blur songs. It really sums up the mundanity that can be felt in a nine to five experience when you don't enjoy the job you have.

    My InterpretationGreat song. It uses the office job metaphor perfectly, and how a boss can talk you up, just to wring every last good drop out of you for their own benefit. It seems pretty clear to me though, that this is a metaphor for the music industry and the treatment blur got in their early years
