Photographs (You Are Taking Now) Lyrics

by Damon Albarn

When the photographs you're taking now
Are taken down again
When the heavy clouds that hide the sun
Have gone
The millions of us on the hill
From the star to lands end
When photographs you're taking now
Are taken now, press send

This is a precious opportunity
Beware of the photographs you are taking now

We are flying over black sands
In a glass aeroplane
Crashing in slow motion in another cityscape game
Where the feeling is supernatural
Like passing into other worlds
We're ending this dissolution when the mother-ship it explodes

When the photographs you're taking now 
Are taken down again
When the heavy clouds that hide the sun 
Have gone
The millions of us on the hill 
From the star to lands end
When photographs you're taking now 
Are taken now, press send

We were walking as zombies on over
To the church of John Coltrane
Arizona bus from sunset be freedom taking cocaine
In the paints and chords of nature
All is but a vanity
And the metronome knows that defeats you is the monochrome that you seek

When the photographs you're taking now 
Are taken down again
When the heavy clouds that hide the sun 
Have gone
The millions of us on the hill 
From the star to lands end
When photographs you're taking now 
Are taken now, press send

This is a precious opportunity
Beware of the photographs you are taking now

Photographs you are taking now
Photographs you are taking now
