The moonies are up on a mountain
The lunatics have taken over the asylum
Waiting on the rapture

Singing we're here to keep your prices down
Feed you to the hounds
To the Daily Mail
Together
Together

You made a pig's ear, you made a mistake
Paid off security and got through the gate
You got away with it but we lie in wait

Where's the truth? What's the use?
I'm hanging around lost and found
And when you're here, innocent
Fat chance, no plan
No regard for human life

Keep trying, you're not right
You're fast to lose, you will lose
You jumped the queue, go back again

President for life, lord of all
The flies in the sky, the beasts of the earth
The fish in the sea, you've lost command

Frivolous, moody, incisive and magisterial! This song always makes me stop and smile.

I agree!  Unfortunately, there are so many people that do not understand Radiohead's sense of humor, and take their music far too seriously.

 

You mean like the way they do. And I like Radiohead's music, but boy talk about self important!{#Rolleyes}

Yeah, let's kill those motherfuckers!
Brilliant!
Sorry, not the day for suicide. PSD.
Nope - not this one, either.
A long time Radiohead fan here and I really dig this.
I hadn't heard it before 9 >10 when the breakdown hit.
Great song.
Ah......no, just no.

Augh, the painful rectal itch of Thom Yorke's voice, and RH's suicidal works.

P S D!

I don't mind his life-is-dark-and-puzzling existential philosophy, if that's the term--but can he and his cohorts be dynamic every so often? Must every song be a dirge? And mumbled so that I have to go to lyrics.com to decipher his concerns? 
 
 

 
So tell me - have you ever listened to any Radiohead album through and through .

Your comments are nonsense if you have.

They are an amazingly dynamic band with a wide range of musical style choices - dirge being only an occasional choice.

And as for lyrics - please name your top 10 rock and roll artists and tell me you undersand at least 80% of everything and I'll tell you they ain't rock and roll most likely.

I've been misundersanding the lyrics to the Stones, Elton John, REM, Radiohead, Pearl Jam and many others for abot 40 years now, so please give up on this mumbled shit.  The passion and committment that takes away from clarity is part of what makes this rock and roll and not just my father's pop music.
Sorry, ya'll.

i haven't had any kool-aid and this sh!t is radness.

No matter how much I agree with the sentiments, it's not in tune and it's not clever.
These kind of songs are one the main reasons I listen to this wonderful station.. :)
Thanks Bill&Rebecca!

Radiohead is fun? I'm guessing that is the first time they have been described that way. Sorry I haven't drunk the Radiohead Kool Aid..
Same as Ella 


Awful, don't understand why anyone would like this.


 
LOVE this song!

you are killin' me today Bill! So many great songs in a row!!! {#Notworthy}

10 points for being extra funny ziggytrix
The intro to this song really reminded me of a Procol Harum song, maybe "Salty Dog"

Wow a Radiohead song I like.  No whining involved.


I like this or Supercollider much better than anything I've actually hear of TKOL.

I'm not really a disciple of this band but that was quite likable.  It sort of reminded me of Richard Hell & The Void-Oids for some reason.

 
Blank Generation or the wail in Love Comes in Spurts?
Ella and Radiohead back to back

People - if you ain't contributing to RP already - do it today.
WTF is this? Why do I know nothing of this??


Everybody in my hotel room loves this song...

 
Interesting!  Very lo-fi, and very unusual for Radiohead in my experience!  I think I like it.

And to think I was starting to kind of like RH. Not after this song!

Actually King of Limbs has TWO drum sets, both equipped with real people playing!
 
Ha
I think Staircase is much better (and several other tracks on KOL), but as someone else said, I have only heard this a couple of times and like most Radiohead tunes, they tend to grow on me.

This song is good for the ears...

 
Better than most of the songs on King Of Limbs.
Annoyingly whining but gets better a little bit after a while.
This is utterly fantastic. The background horns complete the sound here. 
Liking it more as it goes on.
Sorry....first listen.  I never, ever like Radiohead songs on the first listen.
Quite a toe-tapper there!
Great Addition to the RP library. Thanks Bill!
I'd like this more if there wasn't an annoying buzzing on some of the piano chords, especially at the beginning. This might be an artifact on the stream I'm hearing.

the moonies are up on the mountain
the lunatics have taken over the asylum
waiting on the rapture

singing we’re here to keep your prices down
feed you to the hounds
to the daily mail, together, together

you made a pig’s ear, you made a mistake
paid off security and got through the gate
you got away with it but we’re lying in wait eeeh
ehhh eeeh

where’s the truth what’s the use
of hanging round lost and found
and when you’re here innocent
fat chance, no plan
no regard for human life

keeping time with no rhyme
fast and lose, win or lose
you jumped the queue, go back again

president for life, lord of all
the flies in the sky, the beasts of the earth
the fish in the sea have lost command


I hear real drums!
Kinda painful to listen to... IMO
How much we missed that guitar!
Sounds good for this first listen...
