We're the orchestra to your board
And we beg for the scraps from your table
All we want is to be like you
Music to play your ___
Pump pumping sounds through the speakers below
I've tried so hard to keep still
They will chew you up
They will spit out your bones
Standing in the shadows at the end of the bed
I never said anything
I live a wallpaper life of playing guitar in a band
It seems so volatile
Oh my, oh my
He was a good man
And he said he was the best
They said that even life spat in his face
He put everything back in its right place
A conflict of interest, you might say
Are you trying to bribe me?
_____ for my sins
We are plants, happy plants
Superhuman builders' day
I leave you for bitch of _____ and go green
Loved to death like eight mayo maids
With a grin like roadkill
Fine, let's stay
Everything is alive
There is nothing but blue skies from now on
No ghosts, no skeletons
A man hovers in the dust, dust, dust
Thank you very much, thank you
Everybody drive home safe and carefully tonight
And we'll see you in our lounge in a few weeks time
Goodnight! God bless!
Let's go home, Jonny

    i got rid of tentacled. oh thats right:) oh yeah, about the song... Ed laughing might just be the greatest thing ever. I'm not sure if anyone bothered to buy The Most Gigantic Lying Mouth of all Time, but Ed has a little 'interview' where he does nothing buy make honking noises and the occasional laugh. its great. mmm yeah... i found a version on bearshare/ limewire/ any other gnutella client but the quality is horrible at best.

    this song is amazing...is it just a random experimental song or is it an actual b-side? actually, ed has some amazing vocal roles, but you can only experience them live because thom can double himself in the studio. my favorite is the "rain down" part in paranoid android where thom starts singing "that's it sir you're leaving" i also love ed's la la la's in street spirit

    Ed says in the song that "he put everything back in it's right place" and that he's "standing in the shadows at the end of my bed," both if which are homages to "everything In It's Right Place" and "Kid A," the first two tracks on the Kid A record. Just pointing that out...

    you can find it on iMesh as well, but they both use the same network. The song it's self is wonderfull, Ed should release his own album or something, it sounds allot like the old Syd Berret meterial

    ok tentacled is it you that always just posts stuff that says 'Thom angsts'? Everyone is entitled to their opinion but surely not all Radiohead songs are just 'Thom angst'. Especially this one as it is written by Ed.
