Our choicest plans have fallen through, our airiest castles tumbled over, because of lines we neatly drew and later neatly stumbled over.

I was very confused, because I had never heard the original song. The arrangement and singing was convincing, but the harmony was way too contemporary to be an old song. It all made sense when I searched for the title.

Also, I think I like that version more than the original.

I always feel like I should be a bigger Gorillaz fan, which is weird because I already like them a lot. This is a cool version too.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

This uncancellation took a long time. :D
