The Cormorant Lyrics by Damon Albarn

 

Am I imprisoned on this island?

I have tried, I’ve tried to swim away
Out to the buoy
Ebony rose
But the current is too strong
I now drift daydreaming
To when we were happy here on this beach
We played with our children
And they were happy too

Tipping goes the cormorant
I think she knows I’m a pathetic intruder
Into the abyss
And I have watched her too
From the stony beach
That was black in the last year
Before the storm
Elsewhere sometimes
I can see beyond the lighthouse

The uncharted cruise ship
Anchored way off
As though the last party on earth
Continues to vast horizons
Container ships
Full of glass vials

Daily life
