Revolving Doors is the second track and the first single (alongisde "Amarillo") on Gorillaz' 2011 album "The Fall". The song was recorded in Boston, Massachusetts on 5 October 2010.

Band member 2D spoke about his inspiration of this track on Murdoc's radio show, Pirate Radio:

"Well, this came from a thought, yeah, a feeling I had while I was away. As I was walkin’ into a hotel, though the doors, the revolving doors, and the dislocation of being away, y’know, out of sorts, away from home and, this image of this door permanently revolvin’, the endless repetition and the pointless rhythm of it all, I guess struck quite a melancholic image within me. Y’know, just the routine of-"

The song is the A-side of the "Revolving Doors/Amarillo" single.

Lyrics

Revolving doors what have I done
Someone on the TV attempting love
Revolving doors what will I become?
A redneck song

Paid up for a seven
But he only got an eight now, now
I feel that I'm paused by all the pills
I see no wrong, yeah

On a foggy day
Revolving doors in London to a foggy day in Boston
Revolving doors in London to a foggy day in Boston
I sit in a diner
And The Beatles play

I'm paid up for a seven
But I only got S-O-eight oh now

I feel that I'm paused by all the pills
I seem to run out here

Revolving doors
It's stormy on the eastern sea board
He got silver up his night

He paid up for three
But got only two

Revolving doors in London to a foggy day in Boston
Revolving doors in London to a foggy day in Boston

Then he said
Seems I was born for this
Seems I was born to this
Revolving doors
Revolving doors
