all Radiohead lyrics



Planet Telex
you can force it but it will not come.
you can taste it but it will not form.
you can crush it but it's always here.
you can crush it but it's always near
chasing you home
saying everything is broken
everyone is broken.

you can force it but it will stay stung.
you can crush it as dry as a bone.
you can walk it straight home from school.
you can kiss it you can break all the rules
but still everything is broken,
everyone is broken.
why can't you forget?back to top
The Bends
where do we go from here?
the words are coming out all wierd
where are you now when i need you?
alone on an aeroplane
falling asleep against the window pane
my blood will THICKEN.

i need to wash myself again to hide all the dirt and pain
i'd be scared that there's nothing underneath
and who are my real friends?
have they all got the bends?
am i really sinking this low?

my baby's got the bends
we don't have any real friends
i'm just lying in a bar with my drip feed on
talking to my girlfriend waiting for something to happen
and i wish it was the sixties
i wish i could be happy
i wish
i wish
i wish that something would happen..

where do we go from here?
the words are coming out all wierd
where are you now when i need you?
they brought in the CIA
the tanks and the whole marines to blow me away
to blow me sky high.

my baby's got the bends
we don't have any real friends
i'm just lying in a bar with my drip feed on
talking to my girlfriend waiting for something to happen
and i wish it was the sixties
i wish i could be happy
i wish
i wish
i wish that something would happen

i want to live and breathe
i want to be part of the human raceback to top
High & Dry
two jumps in a week i bet you think that's pretty clever don't you
boy.
flying on your
motorcycle.
watching all the ground beneath you
drop.
you'd kill yourself for recognition.
kill yourself to
never
ever
stop.
you broke another mirror.you're turning into something you are not.

drying up in conversation
you will be the one who cannot talk.
all your insides fall to pieces.
you just sit there
wishing
you
could
still
make
love.
they're the ones who'll hate you when you think you've got the world
all sussed out.
they're the ones who'll spit at you.
you will be the one
screaming
out.

it's the best thing that you ever had.back to top
Fake Plastic Trees
HEr green plastiC wateringcan for her fake chineserubberplant
in the fake plastic earth.
that she bought from a rubber man in a town full of rubber PlanS
to get rid of itself,- it wears her out.

SHe lives with a broken man,
a cracked polystyreneman who just
crumbles and burns.
He used to do surgery for girls in the eighties but GRAVITY always
wins and it wears him out.

She Looks like the real thing.
She tastes like the real thing,
my fake plastic love.

But I Can't Help The Feeling.
I Could Blow Through The Ceiling.
If I Just Turn And RUN.
and it wears me out.

If i could be who you wanted all the time..back to top
Bones
I don't wanna a be krippled kracked
shoulders wrists knees and back
ground to dust and ash
crawling on all fours.
when you've got to feel it in your bones.
Now i can't climb the stairs
pieces missing everywhere
prozak painkillersss.
when you've got to feel it in your bones.
and i used to fly like Peter Pan
all the children flew when i touched their hands.back to top
[Nice Dream]
they love me like i was a brother
they protect me
listen to me
they dug me my very own garden
gave me sunshine
made me happy. nice dream.

i call up my friend the good angel
but she's out with
her ansaphone
she says she would love to come help but
the sea would
electrocute us all. nice dream.

if you think that you're strong enough
if you think you belong enough.

nice dream.back to top
Just
can't get the stink off,
he's been hanging around for days.
comes like a comet,
suckered you but not your friends.
one day he'll get to you,
teach you how to be a holy cow.

don't get my sympathy hanging out the 15th floor.
you've changed the locks 3 times,
he still comes reeling through the door.
and soon he'll get to you,
teach you how to get to purest hell.

you do it to yourself you do
and that's what really hurts is
you do it to yourself just you,
you and no-one else
you do it to yourself.back to top
My Iron Lung
faith your driving me away
you do it everyday
you don't mean it but it hurts like HELL
my brain says im receiving pain
a lack of oxygen from my life sup[poRT
my IrOn lUng.

weRe too young to fall asleep
too cynical to speak
we are loosing it can't you tell?
we scratch our eternal itch
our twentieth century bitch and we are gratEful for our
irOn lUng.

suck suck your teenage thumb
toilet trained anddumb
(whe n the powrr runs out we'll just humm)
this this is our new s=ong
just like the last one
a total w.a.s.t.e. of time.
my
irOn lUng.back to top
Bullet Proof..I Wish I Was
limb by limb and tooth by tooth
tearing up inside of me
everyday everyhour wish that i
was bullet proof.

wax me
mould me heat the pins
and stab them in you have turned me into this
just wish that it
was bullet proof.

so pay me money and take a shot
lead-fill
the hole in me
i could burst a million bubbles
all
surrogate
&
bullet proof.back to top
Black Star
i get home from work and you're still standing in your dressing
gown
well what am i to do?
i know all the things around your head and what they do to
you.
what are we coming to?
what are we gonna do?
blame it on the black star
blame it on the falling sky
blame it on the satellite that beams me home.
the troubled words of a troubled mind i try to understand
what is eating you.
i try to stay awake but its 58hrs since that i last slept with
you.
what are we coming to?
i just don't know anymore.

i get on the train and I just stand about now that i don't think
of you.
i keep falling over i keep passing out
when i see a face like you.
what am i coming to?
im gonna melt down.back to top
Sulk
you bite
through
the big wall
the big wall
bites back
you sit there
and
sulk
sit there and
bawl
you are so pretty
when youre
on your
knees
disinfected
eager
to please

sometimes
you sulk
sometimes
you burn
god rest
your soul
when the
loving comes
and we've
already gone
just like
your dad
you'll never
change

each time it
comes
it eats me
alive
i try to
behave
but it eats me
alive
so i declare
a holiday
fall asleep
drift away.back to top
Street Spirit (Fade Out)
rows of houses all bearing down on me
i can feel their blue hands touching me
all these things in all positions
all these things will one day take control
and fade out again and fade out

this machine will will not communicate these thoughts
and the strain i am under
be a world child form a circle before we all go under
and fade out again and fade out again

cracked eggs dead birds
scream as they fight for life
i can feel death can see it's beady eyes
all these things into frution
all these things we'll one day swallow whole
and fade out again and fade out again.

.iMMersE your soUL in LOVE.
