Questionable lyric

Gracenote indicates that the first line of the second verse is "I got my head down" [1]. Listening to the song on the CD, I think it's hard to tell if Damon Albarn is pronouncing it as down /d'aʊn/, or done /d'ʌn/. Watching the official video, I think it sounds a little more like down. However, after running the song through Audacity and playing around with the filters, I think it sounds a little more like done. So far, I think the best indicator is Blur's live performance on the Late Show with David Letterman (July 2, 1997). Although the microphone covers Albarn's mouth at the pivotal moment (time 1:16), I think it definitely sounds like he says done. --Lafflam 14:16, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

Additional information: Although the original CD did not include any printed lyrics, the Japanese Tour single for Song 2 did. (It even includes Japanese translations.) The printed lyrics from the single indicate that the lyric in question is down, not done. Of course, that doesn't actually mean anything, and I still think it sounds like Albarn actually sings done. But, I found it interesting, and thought I'd share. --Lafflam 01:57, March 23, 2010 (UTC)
