Gorillaz – Opium Lyrics

I been cooped up for a minute
I been inside livin’ lonely
I don’t bother changin’, I see
I’m gon’ bless my way after these
[?] for ages
Trouble don’t let us stop our ways
Bad moon lights in the day
We are ready, okay

Runnin’, lovin’, singin’, huggin’, livin’, get it, stack it
Runnin’, dancin’, fire, people wake up
Come on, keep on dreamin’, don’t stop
Lovin’, tryin’, growin’, don’t stop
They gon’ try to slow you, don’t stop
Never ever, no, I don’t stop
London, Paris, LA, don’t stop

I land Jamaica, Rio, don’t stop
New York, Lagos, Sydney, don’t stop
You tried to kill me, but I am a monster
You tried to end me, but face it, no, no
Know why the envy, I got it, it’s in me
Been so long since I had new faith
Been so long since I changed my ways
Been so long since I been okay
I met a lady on the side of the road
And I had a story that’s never been told
I bought a life that was lived on hope
To the truth of the inner light that we all hold
She said “Baby, I can hear my train comin’
I leave with somethin’ before I go”
Listen child, don’t you ever waste time
Turn out ain’t nobody shine, better water your own

Will we wake up tomorrow
And feel like we are closer together?
Same for colossal changes
And how we treat each other when we’re livin’ in the city
Yeah, [?]
Is it man or women feeling
This unbalance, today?

Hold
Hold the raging lights, they’re shining on you (Shinin’ on you)
Hold
Hold the raging lights, they’re shining on you

Runnin’, lovin’, singin’, huggin’, livin’, get it, stack it
Runnin’, dancin’, fire, people wake up
Come on, keep on dreamin’, don’t stop
Lovin’, tryin’, growin’, don’t stop
They gon’ try to slow you, don’t stop
Never ever, no, I don’t stop
London, Paris, LA, don’t stop

Been a long time since I been outside
Don’t let it catch up with me
I contact close with me
Tapped in, wrapped up, let me in, let me in
Let me all over, in between
Leave your toothbrush in your dreams
I ain’t worried ’bout the next thing
I be itchin’ to the itch cream
Eyes bounce off the glow of the moonlight
I hope we’re still close when the sun rise
I paint the picture before ya’
I can’t hold this in much longer
Searchin’ for this feelin’ my whole life

Hold
Hold the raging lights, they’re shinin’ on you (Shinin’ on you)
Hold
Hold the raging lights, they’re shinin’ on you
