New Genious (Brother)

Some nice lyrics show that not all Gorillaz songs are completely meaningless in lyrical content, this charming little song was inexplicably never played live but sits excellently on the debut album as the calm before the 'Clint Eastwood' storm.The sound is very reminiscent of Bo Diddly, in particular the track that it borrows from "Hit Or Miss".

Lyrics:

Yeah
Dream on my world
I live on my world
Going off my head, down to, somewhere
I' m going on a dancehall tune

In a pressure today
I blew a bad man away, today
Higher ground, had to be told
I blew a man away

Brother, sister too
Do what you must do
Don't trust people you meet
Yeah, yeah
They might promise you that the river ain't deep

Dream on the street
People passing through me, yes they do
Well my friend
Want my heart mend
I'm gonna bring it all back to you

Brother, sister too (She won't dance at all, like a quarter, yeah)
Do what you must do
Don't trust people you meet
Yeah, yeah
They might promise you that the river ain't deep

Brother, sister too (She won't dance at all, like a quarter, yeah)
Do what you must do
Don't trust people you meet
Yeah, yeah
They might promise you that the river ain't deep

Brother, sister too
Do what you want to do
Now that I, that's right
The river and people seem to die
And keep on to this, keep on
The river ain't deep, the river ain't deep, the river ain't deep
