Sleeping Powder Lyrics

"Okay, last time
This is drugs
This is your brain on drugs
Any questions?"
I was gone with the self of the day, gone
With the self of the day, gone
With the self of the day, gone
Gone, gone, gone
I was gone
I'm back, where are we...

    2-D is a functioning pill head. Lots of us are. You need to do what is needed to get through life in this crazy world.

    So you’re telling me 2-d was and/or is taking drugs to make himself feel better. Now if you actually look back at Gorillaz’s other music videos like feel good inc. , you can see that when 2-d looks out of the window he looks really sad. So this makes me wonder if it’s all because of what all has happened to him; his girlfriend cheating on him with his “friend” Murdoc, and Murdoc abusing him. From what I’ve mentioned I think that 2-d takes these drugs because of Murdoc. This would actually make perfect sense based on what he (murdoc) has done. But then there’s times where 2-d and Murdoc are all buddy-buddy, or acting like friends. So that makes me think that maybe it’s not just Murdoc that causes 2-d to take these meds we have mentioned. There are also other music videos by Gorillaz like do ya thing where 2-d has a hangover- from what I’ve heard it was to drown his emotions; I hope I’m right about that. But after all this I’m going to think that 2-d takes those meds because he’s having a hard time in life.

    Okay so basically, sleeping powder is about 2D taking a shit ton of psychedelics. That's literally it.

    Sleeping Powder is DMT, the world's most powerful psychedelic. It is the sunshine of their debut single Clint Eastwood as well, not marijuana.
