Gorillaz – On Melancholy Hill lyrics
Up on melancholy hill
There's a plastic tree

Are you here with me
Just looking out on the day
Of another dream

Well you can't get what you want
But you can get me

So let's set up and see
'Cause you are my medicine
When you're close to me

When you're close to me

So call in the submarine
'Round the world will go
Does anybody know
If we're looking out on the day
Of another dream


If you can't get what you want
Then you come with me

Up on melancholy hill
A manatee?
Just looking out on the day
When you're close to me
When you're close to me

When you're close to me

    Honestly I like to remember that murdoc wrote the plastic beach album basically all by himself and there are a good few sappy songs like this, and in my onion he's talking about 2-D.
    It just all seemed like he enjoys 2-D's company. Just having him around makes him feel this way, and he might feel like it's so perfect to him it almost feels unreal. It's this kind of lazy comfy domestic sappiness to it.

    So that's what I think when I hear it, ha, sorry it was kinda g**.
    Probably think this because I'm in the fandom and am highly fascinated with 2-D and murdoc's complex relationship.
