Produced by Richard Russell. Album Everyday Robots. Everyday Robots Lyrics. didn’t know where they was going But they knew where they was, wasn’t it?" We are everyday robots on our phones In the process of getting home (Autonomous) Looking like standing stones Out there on our own We're everyday robots in control Or in the process of being sold (Autonomous) Driving in adjacent cars 'Til you press restart. Everyday robots just touch thumbs Swimmin’ in lingo they become (Autonomous) Stricken in a status sea One more vacancy For everyday robots getting old When our lips are cold (Autonomous) Lookin’ like standing stones Out there on our own. Little robots in ringback tones In the process of getting home (Autonomous) (Autonomous). About Everyday Robots.
Lyrics to "Everyday Robots" song by Damon Albarn: 'They didn’t know where they was going, but they knew where they was wasn’t it' We are everyday ro. .We are everyday robots on our phones In the process of getting home Looking like standing stones Out there on our own. We’re everyday robots in control Or in the process of being sold Driving in adjacent cars ‘Til you press restart. Everyday robots just touch thumbs Swimmin’ in lingo they become Stricken in a status sea One more vacancy. For everyday robots getting old When our lips are cold Lookin’ like standing stones Out there on our own. Little robots in ringback tones In the process of getting home. Writer(s): ALBARN DAMON, RUSSELL RICHARD.
Everyday Robots" is a song by Damon Albarn, from his solo debut album, Everyday Robots. Records in the US. Moreover, the album's title track was released with a non-album B-side called "Electric Fences". The song also contains samples of 1940-1950s comic performer Lord Buckley's hipsemantic rant about Spanish explorer Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca.
Everyday Robots is his first proper song-based solo album. Blur singer Damon Albarn has had 20 years of practice perfecting a certain kind of song. It’s a sad song but comfortable in its sadness, the kind of song that might make might you stop in a crowded bar and remember that even beautiful things come to an end. It is grand, but rumpled and a little isolated, too. It has quieter places to be. For someone who has performed in front of a crowd of 200,000 people, Damon Albarn never seems to be far from his next nap. Blur has been on and off hiatus since 2003.

Damon Albarn’s discography is as wide-ranging as any figure in contemporary rock. Everyday Robots brings together elements from his singular musical journey. This solo album boasts the haunting, dub-oriented elements of The Good, the Bad and the Queen, Gorillaz’ dazed electronic ambience and the percussive textures of 2005’s collaborative Mali Music. The result is a stunning collection of deeply emotional experimental rock that only a musician of his range could have created.
Damon Albarn has always seemed most comfortable with some distance between himself and his music. As Blur‘s frontman, he played the tart-tongued wit, satirizing modern Britain from behind a wall of cheeky irony. With Gorillaz, he created the biggest virtual band since Kiss. Even his forays into global music – jamming with Malian guitar greats, traveling to China to write an opera – place him in the well-worn role of a worldly seeker losing himself in the exotic. In 2012, he made a record about the life of 16th-century English mystic John Dee. But he’s never really made a record about the life.
