Posdnuos told Q Magazine that Damon Albarn always questions what he is working on. The De La Soul rapper explained that the Gorillaz songwriter will record something and within a week he's often changed it and tried something else. "The original version of Momentz felt to me like some old ska record," he said, "but what I wrote changed what he wanted, so they made it a rigid robot beat." - Songfacts
True, nowadays everyone is busy. But I do believe everyone has TIME to smell the roses.
For example, when someone in your life walks out in your life and end a relationship or friendship. It means they want to live life to the fullest and cherish every second of it with out you. Then one day, you will really see them living their life and cherishing every second of it with out you.
You realized that you were never important to them because it was easy for them to stay away or walk away. So you realize that you also have to live your life to the fullest and cherish every second of it with out them.
I have experienced these many times and I realized that people come and go and I have to accept that. Now, when I don't have any connection with my old friends, I am now frank and easily end the relationship or friendship with them.

Simple interpretation. Momentz is about living life to the fullest and cherishing every second of it. It's a very bouncy tune, and seeing as how De La Soul's 1st verse is specific in nature talking about meeting a girl and doing crazy things together only to have a hangover the next day as a reminder of what happened. Nowadays, everyone is so busy to keep up with all the happenings around us in work and at home that we often forget to go and smell the roses.
2D's contribution to the song (Red or black, yellow, red, black, white, dirty) could be associated as notable colors that are seen as "dirty" in some way, which connects to the kind of "momentz" that De La goes through in their verse.
The "plastic on the ceiling" that the girl sings halfway through the song could be in reference to simply looking at a ceiling, and in context to De La's verse it could be the first thing that he and the girl mentioned within the lyrics see after waking up from a hangover.
Finally, the "Kool Klown Klan" is in reference to the KKK, who may be parodized as such in the Gorillaz universe as actual characters (the name appears in the Saturnz Barz music video as graffiti inside the Spirit House).
