"Revolving doors" as written by and Jamie Hewlett Damon Albarn....
Revolving doors what have I done
Someone on the TV attempting love
Revolving doors what will I become
A redneck song

Paid up for a seven
But he only got an eight now, now
I feel that I'm paused by all the pills
I see no wrong, yeah

On a foggy day
Revolving doors in London to a foggy day in Boston
Revolving doors in London to a foggy day in Boston
I sit in a diner
And the Beatles play

I'm paid up for a seven
But I only got S-O-eight oh now

I feel that I'm paused by all the pills
I seem to run out here

Revolving doors
It's stormy on the eastern sea board
He got silver up his night

He paid up for three
But got only two

Revolving doors in London to a foggy day in Boston
Revolving doors in London to a foggy day in Boston

Then he said
Seems I was born for this
Seems I was born to this
Revolving doors
Revolving doors

    My InterpretationI think BlackShadowZombieNinja said it pretty much spot on. The only thing I can add in is, I think there might be some symbolism in the title. A revolving door, think about it. It circles around and you can go into one, but you can't go back out the same way you came. I think it might parallel 2D's situation as a musical artist. He got into it, he got famous, but now he can't go back to how life was before, even if he wants to. It's played up more in those last lines, "It seems I was born for this." I.E., he feels like he was born to record and perform, like that's his only purpose now, and from the melancholy vibe of the whole song, he seems kind of hallow to the notion.
