  • But in the magic gold, there's a pretty one
    I ask her where it goes 'cause I really wanna
    I wonder if she knows that we're underwater
    That's the way it goes in the city wonder

    Moved to the spot, I'm one of a few
    A whole lot of everything, but nothing to do
    'Til the end of Tesla, pardon the ex-wrestler
    He dates Francesca, they on them Xannies
    Liposuction's scheduled for Granny
    She want to save some add to her nanny girls' trip
    Miami at the end of the year
    Polluted-filled skies, trying to think clear
    I heard the bad news, while I was shedding a beer
    Watch out from the coast, Paul Revere
    We all play a part in the Devil's cheer
    Run to the hills 'cause the end is near

    But in the magic gold, there's a pretty one
    I ask her where it goes 'cause I really wanna
    I wonder if she knows that we're underwater
    That's the way it goes in the city wonder

    Yo, a desolate city where it hurts to smile
    Ran into the Reverend, says it's been a while
    I'm reining in the Randal, she's a social scandal
    Gave ourselves a handout when it's too much to bare
    ABC boys ready to mare
    Like Shaun, he's a rider, took on a dare
    Now he's singing like a birdy, pulling on his hair
    Trending on Twitter's what some of us live for
    Branches here and out, fucking revolving door
    All of this a joke? Pauly Shore
    Bullshit keeps comin', baby, I'm a Matador
    What are we living for?

    Are we all losing our minds?
    Because life got in the way
    (Hey, hey, hey)
    Things will be here just in time
    Your replacement is here to stay (ahh)

    New gold, fool's gold
    Everything will disappear (new gold)
    Someone's out here
    Who traveled far too many years (new gold)
    To nowhere, nowhere (new gold, new gold)
    Nothing here is ever real (new gold)
    New gold, fool's gold (new gold)
    Everything will disappear, disappear
    Disappear, disappear, disappear
    Disappear, disappear, disappear
    Disappear, disappear, disappear, disappear

    But in the magic gold, there's a pretty one
    I ask her where it goes 'cause I really wanna
    I wonder if she knows that we're underwater
    That's the way it goes in the city wonder (new gold)

    But in the magic gold, there's a pretty one (new gold, new gold, new gold)
    I ask her where it goes 'cause I really wanna (new gold, new gold, new gold)
    I wonder if she knows that we're underwater (new gold, new gold, new gold)
    That's the way it goes in the city wonder (new gold, new gold, new gold)

    In the magic gold, there's a pretty one (new gold, fool's gold)
    I ask her where it goes 'cause I really wanna (everything will disappear)
    I wonder if she knows that we're underwater (someone's out here)
    That's the way it goes in the city wonder (who travelled far too many years)

    But in the magic gold, there's a pretty one (to nowhere, nowhere)
    I ask her where it goes 'cause I really wanna (nothing here is ever real)
    I wonder if she knows that we're underwater (new gold, fool's gold)
    That's the way it goes in the city wonder (everything will disappear) Writer/s: Damon Albarn, Greg Kurstin, Kevin Parker, Romye Robinson
