Gorillaz - Battlesong lyrics

rate me

Interplanetary adversaries battling for supremacy

Sounds like a good way to build up my infamy

Soon as Automator sent for me

We headed over to receive our registration forms from the galactic embassy

(Yes may I help you?)

Remember me?

To escape a global panic we had to intercede

(Oh you're here for the battle forms?)

Yeah can we get them for free?

(I'm afraid not you'll have to pay the entry fee)

It was worth a try*

When we first arrived on Mercury

Gravity adjustment was a must, then

Step up contestant

Number 12, I was 13

He started bursting ammunition that wasn't working

His rudimentary technical abilities couldn't kill me

Knocked me for a loop, but I could still breathe

He had the crowd going by appearance

Here comes the anticipated interference from his squad and guards

I bust back with onslaught of hydrothermal clod that burnt their third eye

Though outnumbered I come with heat and trigger a massive explosion to the beat

They hit me with compressed air

Left my chest bare

My sonic stun gun takes em out by the next snare

We won the bout just as the oxygen tanks were running out

so we're back to the ship

Pull a map from a blip

Manipulate the cursor

Recharge our essentials set the coordinates then flow

Through a trillion miles of space with style and grace

Next stop Pluto to rock these new flows

Atmosphere methane, be strategic like a chess game

Leave this emcee with chest pains

I had to battle a shadow in his black light form

He dazzled me adding 3 points to his score

Engulfed my microphone with darkness adding 3 more

The panel started to roar

I had to find the core of his power

He stretched his text causing me to black out

It took my DAT out

I couldn't back out

It took out the sound man I'm taking a pounding

I bust out an a capella that's astounding

Project a uni-beam through his spleen

Pulled out my x-ray cannons to disintegrate the phantom

It's not fine my cell structure ruptured

His form will get bust up into clusters

Shadowy masses spread to the greater darkness of outer space

Now I'm placed 1st among artists

Serve due more space travel


(Yes *Deltron*)

What have you

Next destination

The colony of Sicilia

*An earth colony -- this* is appealing


With mic in place we was off breathing frost

in a void thinking what if we had lost?


Entertain an ignorant thought

Land Ho, Sicilia we entered the port

Fill out a few forms then we meet our challenger named Qusar

(No matter who you are I'll handle ya)

He's a real charmer

I threw on my pla-steel armor

He wants to absorb the talents that I worked so hard for

A bitter hard core

I busted a few shots and opened him like a car door

He was a quadruped, four arms

He hit me with four fore arms made of bronze

I said, Automator play the song

(You got it)

Was the theme

Made a slight alteration in my scheme

Set him up with a condition beam with his double team

Leaned toward his dome piece and reamed the back of his neck

With a cranial disruption siphon

Squeezed out his brain like juice

Like a python
