Gorillaz – The Pink Phantom ft. Elton John and 6LACK
This comes as the eighth single from Gorillaz’ Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez details a failed relationship. The lyrics talk about how the protagonist showered the one they loved with gifts and affection, but the love interest leaves them and breaks their heart. The protagonist does everything to get away from this heartache, but they sometimes still see this person; hence the lyrics “the phantom’s on the way” and “the phantom is coming”. These lyrics can also be interpreted as death coming for the main character (MC) since some of the lyrical passages can be interpreted as the MC wanting to commit suicide because of the emotional pain they are in.
