"The Man Who Left Himself" as written by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Steven Alexander James and David Rowntree....
All good people your time will come
Work forever and still not be done
Close your tired eyes, no one knows you've gone
It's not forever but today you've become
The man who left himself

Don't belong here, your heart beats too fast
Feel the mis-beat, it starts and stops
Don't be frightened, these things never last
Maybe tomorrow your time will have passed
It's the man who left himself

    My InterpretationI think this is about a man who'ways depressed and kills himself.
    He was put on this earth by God, and God put him here so that he could realize his worthlessness and kill himself. I think this song says some people are meant to die, because God gave them no worth.

    Now I don't believe in God, or that there is one single person that doesn't have worth, because everyone does, but this song is truly beautiful in a terrible tragic way
