Feel Good Inc. Lyrics
City's breaking down on a camel's back,
They just have to go 'cause they don't know wack,
So all you fill the streets it's appealing to see,
You wont get out the county, 'cos your bad and free
You've got a...

I can very well agree with all of you, but I heard the man from Blur say this once. He said that the Gorillaz built Feel Good Inc as a way to escape the horror of the world, and now they find themselves trapped inside it. Be careful what you wish for in a sense.
Definitely about general corruption and the hopes of feeling good. I don't think it has much to do with drugs, besides the use of drugs is often caused by depression. I think the Windmill represents something, although I can't say I'm sure what. I watched the video with the idea it might explain something... it really just left more questions.

I don't think this song is necessarily about drugs. Everyone associates the Gorillaz and drugs just because of 'Clint Eastwood'... ugh.
However, I don't know what the windmills are about. Maybe they're being cryptic. Maybe they are just writing songs. Maybe they just want to confuse the fuck out of us. Who knows. At any rate. I think this song is about feeling good ((duh)) and probably not because of drugs. "Love forever, love is free" is a pretty simple, laid out line.
Note after "Windmill,windmill, for the land" he says "turn forever, you and me." Come on, not that hard.
Corruption obviously plays a part in this whole cd. Just go look at gorillaz.com and watch the intro!

The song is about how feeling good is everyone's goal in life, and people would do almost anything to feel good.
The windmill in this song has nothing to do with drugs AT ALL! The windmill symbolizes individual thought and freedom. For example, if this city overpowered the incorporations, they would still need power and other supplies and therefore use a windmill. It's hard to explain, but it shows individuality before corporations, like in the middle ages.

This is an awesome song. If you havent heard it, you really should. It is mainly about a city that is in utter chaos and a large amount of people are gathering, who are depressed and can't sleep at night. The singer is trying to explain that there is hope for them and they can find love. He also explains that if you "bite the dust" or give up you will kill the Inc. "love is free" is explaining that anyone can get love because it's free, but it's all about the right person. No clue at all what the windmill is about.
