Gorillaz – Let Me Out (On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert) (Live)


Tell me there’s a chance for me to make it off the streets
But I won’t get tired at all
You got to die a little if you wanna live
You got to die a little if you wanna live

Mama Mavis, oh
Am I passin’ into the light?
Be ready, be ready
Change is coming
(Yeah!)
[Refrain: 2-D]
Mama, they tried my patience
You’d best be ready for it

All the world is out of your hands
All the world is out of your hands
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s a shift in times
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s a shift in times
Change coming
Tell me that they’ll listen if it’s lessons that I teach
Look into my eyes, mama, tell me what you see
Be ready, ready for it
Obama is gone, who is left to save us?
[Pre-Chorus: Mavis Staples]
You say I’m dangerous, I speak for the nameless

Something I’ve begun to fear is about to change its form
(Then ascending into the dark, let me out)
(Woo!)
[Verse 2: Pusha T]
Let me out, let me out
(Am I looking into mercy’s eyes?) Look into your eyes

(Am I looking into mercy’s eyes?)
(Then ascending into the dark) Another night
Change come to pass

You’d best be ready for it
You got to die a little if you wanna live
Promise me my pastor isn’t lyin’ as he preach
[Pre-Chorus: Mavis Staples]
If the bands make ’em dance, then the rain gon’ come
I fly with the vultures, I be with them bangers
Am I passin’ into the light?
[Chorus: 2-D]
Let me out, let me out

Tell me that I won’t die at the hands of the police
All the world is out of your hands

They say the devil’s at work and Trump is calling favors
Promise me I won’t outlive my nephew and my niece
[Outro: Mavis Staples]
[Verse 1: Pusha T]

Tell me there’s a heaven in the sky where there is peace
(Let me out)
Oooh, oooh oooh
But until then, I keep my piece in arm’s reach
You’d best be ready
If change don’t come, then the change won’t come
[Chorus: 2-D]
Am I passin’ into the light?
But I won’t get tired at all
Change come to pass
So together we mourn, I’m praying for my neighbors
[Pre-Chorus: Mavis Staples]
Something I’ve begun to fear is about to change its form
(Am I looking into mercy’s eyes?)
(Then ascending into the dark) Another night
