"Stupid Car" as written by and Thomas Edward/greenwood Yorke....
I find it hard
To drive your stupid car
I find it hard
Cause I never get that far
And you put my brain in overload
And I can't change gears
I cannot see the road
You got concrete eyes
And I cannot see your face
And I failed in life
Cause you crushed me with your hands
And you put my brain in overload
I can't change gears
I cannot see the road

    General Commentwrong lyrics...
    i find it hard not it's funny how

    the song's basically about being screwed over for life by someone, and just using a car as a metaphor.

    General CommentPersonally I see it as somebody held the person back from doing what they really wanted to do and now he feels that he can't go back, he's stuck and the car represents the life he's stuck with. It's crushing him.

    General CommentThom is saying that cars make you stupid. Everyday you let this car drive you from meladrone place to another and little by little it just makes you more lazy and more stupid

    General CommentThom was in a car accident when he was younger. A few of Radiohead's songs have lyrics that imply something about it. Great song - not long enough though.

    General CommentThey are the wrong lyrics, would be nice if they were changed...mrclean was right. Why are all of the lyrics wrong on this site for radiohead, all you have to do is go to greenplastic.com. Anyways, I love this song, the vocals are fantastic and very heartfelt, as Thom is so well known for. I like the origonal version of this song more cause you can hear the vocals and guitar more clearly. It is definately about his feelings towards car, which he very much dislikes.
