Everyone Everyone around here Everyone is so near It's holding on It's holding on Everyone Everyone is so near Everyone has got the fear It's holding on It's holding on

After years of waiting nothing came As your life flashed before your eyes You realise I'm a reasonable man Get off, get off, get off my case I'm a reasonable man Get off my case, get off my case After years of waiting After years of waiting nothing came And you realise you're looking, Looking in the wrong place I'm a reasonable man Get off my case Get off my case I'm a reasonable man Get off my case Get off my case Get off my case I'm a reasonable man Get off my case Get off my case Get off my case After years of waiting

Faith, you're driving me away You do it everyday You don't mean it But it hurts like hell My brain says I'm receiving pain A lack of oxygen From my life support My iron lung We're too young to fall asleep Too cynical to speak We are losing it Can't you tell? We scratch our eternal itch A twentieth century bitch And we are grateful for Our iron lung The headshrinkers, they want everything My uncle Bill, my Belisha beacon The headshrinkers, they want everything My uncle Bill, my Belisha beacon Suck, suck your teenage thumb Toilet trained and dumb When the power runs out We'll just hum This, this is our new song Just like the last one A total waste of time My iron lung The headshrinkers, they want everything My uncle Bill, my Belisha beacon The headshrinkers, they want everything My uncle Bill, my Belisha beacon And if you're frightened You can be frightened You can be, it's OK And if you're frightened You can be frightened You can be, it's OK The headshrinkers, they want everything My uncle Bill, my Belisha beacon

Drag him out your window Dragging out your dead Singing I miss you Snakes and ladders Flip the lid Out pops the cracker Smacks you in the head Knifes you in the neck Kicks you in the teeth Steel toe caps Takes all your credit cards Get up get the gunge Get the eggs Get the flan in the face The flan in the face The flan in the face Dance you fucker dance you fucker Don't you dare Don't you dare Don't you flan in the face Take it with the love is given Take it with a pinch of salt Take it to the taxman Let me back let me back I promise to be good Don't look in the mirror At the face you don't recognise Help me call the doctor Put me inside Put me inside Put me inside Put me inside Put me inside I keep the wolf from the door But he calls me up Calls me on the phone Tells me all the ways that he's gonna mess me up Steal all my children If I don't pay the ransom But I'll never see them again If I squeal to the cops Walking like giant cranes ah With my x ray eyes i strip you naked In a tight little world and why are you on the list? Stepford wives who are we to complain? Investments and dealers investments and dealers Cold wives and mistresses Cold wives and sunday papers. City boys in first class Don't know we're born little Someone else is gonna come and clean it up Born and raised for the job Someone else always does I wish you'd get up get over get up get over Turn the tape off I keep the wolf from the door But he calls me up Calls me on the phone Tells me all the ways that he's gonna mess me up Steal all my children If I don't pay the ransom But I'll never see them again If I squeal to the cops So I'm just gonna

Rows of houses, all bearing down on me I can feel their blue hands touching me All these things into position All these things we'll one day swallow whole 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 its beady eyes All these things into position All these things we'll one day swallow whole And fade out again and fade out again Immerse your soul in love

When I'm at the pearly gates This'll be on my videotape My videotape My videotape When Mephistopheles is just beneath And he's reaching up to grab me This is one for the good days And I have it all here In red blue green In red blue green You are my centre when I spin away Out of control on videotape On videotape [x6] This is my way of saying goodbye Because I can't do it face to face So I'm talking to you after it's too late No matter what happens now I shouldn't be afraid Because I know today has been the most perfect day I've ever seen.

Karma police, arrest this man He talks in maths He buzzes like a fridge He's like a detuned radio Karma police, arrest this girl Her Hitler hairdo is Making me feel ill And we have crashed her party This is what you get This is what you get This is what you get when you mess with us Karma police I've given all I can It's not enough I've given all I can But we're still on the payroll This is what you get This is what you ge This is what you get when you mess with us And for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself Phew, for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself For for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself Phew, for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself

Where do we go from here? The words are coming out all weird Where are you now, when I need you Alone on an aeroplane Fall asleep on against the window pane My blood will thicken I need to wash myself again to hide all the dirt and pain 'Cause I'd be scared that there's nothing underneath But who are my real friends? Have they all got the bends? Am I really sinking this low? My baby's got the bends, oh no We don't have any real friends, no, no, no Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to happen I wish it was the sixties, I wish we could be happy I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen Where do we go from here? The planet is a gunboat in a sea of fear And where are 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 Just lying in the bar with my drip feed on Talking to my girlfriend, waiting for something to happen I wish it was the sixties, I wish we could be happy I wish, I wish, I wish that something would happen I wanna live, breathe I wanna be part of the human race I wanna live, breathe I wanna be part of the human race, race, race, race Where do we go from here? The words are coming out all weird Where are you now when I need you?

Wake.. from your sleep The drying of your tears Today we escape, we escape Pack.. and get dressed Before your father hears us Before all hell breaks loose Breathe, keep breathing Don't lose your nerve Breathe, keep breathing I can't do this alone Sing.. us a song A song to keep us warm There's such a chill, such a chill You can laugh A spineless laugh We hope your rules and wisdom choke you Now we are one in everlasting peace We hope that you choke, that you choke We hope that you choke, that you choke We hope that you choke, that you choke

Walk down the staircase, magnetic pull. Back to the other place, where I cannot go. Send in the chopper, steal you away. My pot is full, let me take control. Let me take control. My pot is full, of secrets to be told, secrets to be told. I have always, and I always will. My pot is full, let me take control. Let me take control. My pot is full, of secrets to be told, secrets to be told.

When you were here before I couldn't look you in the eye You're just like an angel Your skin makes me cry You float like a feather In a beautiful whirl You're so very special I wish I was special But I'm a creep I'm a weirdo What the hell am I doing here? I don't belong here I don't care if it hurts I want to have control I want a perfect body I want a perfect soul I want you to notice when I'm not around You're so very special I wish I was special But I'm a creep I'm a weirdo What the hell am I doing here? I don't belong here No, no He runs He runs Whatever makes you happy Whatever you want What the hell am I doing here? I don't belong here But I'm a creep I'm a weirdo What the am I doing here? What the am I doing here? But I'm a creep I'm a weirdo You're so very special

about

Oh dear, what is a Radiohead fan to do?
While there was no new material between 2011’s King of Limbs and 2016’s ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’ we listened to their back catalogue over and over…

Well if you are a serious enough musician with a love for Radiohead there is one other option… Make a high quality album that pays homage to the songs you love and do it in your own style. A new take… while at the same time retaining the magic of the originals. Not a covers album but a ‘radio in my head’ experience.

For the love of Radiohead!
