"Fire Coming Out Of A Monkey's Head," by Gorillaz featuring Dennis Hopper

Once upon a time _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ of a great mountain,
there was a town where the people known as Happyfolk lived,
their _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ a mystery to the rest of the world,
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ as it was by great clouds.
Here they _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ their peaceful lives,
Innocent of the litany of excess and violence that was growing in the world below.
To _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ with the spirit of the mountain called Monkey was enough.
Then one day Strangefolk arrived in the town.
They came in _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ , hidden behind dark glasses, but no one noticed them: they only saw shadows.
You see, without the Truth of the Eyes, the Happyfolk were blind.

Falling out of _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ and hiding out in _ _ _ _ _
Waiting for the _ _ _ _ _ _ to come, people going home
Jump out from behind them and _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _
Now everybody dancing _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ ,
_ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ ,
_ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _

In time, Strangefolk found their way into _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ of the mountain,
and it was there that they found the caves of unimaginable _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ and _ _ _ _ _ _ .
By chance, they stumbled upon the Place Where All Good Souls _ _ _ _ / _ _ / _ _ _ _ .
The Strangefolk, they coveted the jewels in these caves _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ ,
and soon they began to mine the mountain, its rich seam fueling the _ _ _ _ _ of their own world.
Meanwhile, down in the town, the Happyfolk _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ,
their dreams invaded by _ _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ digging away at their souls.
Every day, people would wake and stare at the mountain.
Why was it bringing darkness _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ ?
And as the Strangefolk mined deeper and deeper into the mountain,
Holes began to appear, bringing with them _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ that chilled the very soul of them up.
For the first time, the Happyfolk felt fearful for they knew that soon the Monkey would soon _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ .

And then _ _ _ _ / _ / _ _ _ _ _ .
Distant at first, it grew into castrophany so immense it could be heard far away in space.
There were _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ _ _ . There was _ _ / _ _ _ _ .
The mountain called Monkey had spoken.
There _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ .
And then, nothing.

O little town in U.S.A, your time has come to see
There's nothing you believe you want
But where were you when _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ on me?
Did you call me now?
