Burn the Witch
Radiohead Lyrics


Stay in the shadows
Cheer at the gallows
This is a round up

This is a low flying panic attack
Sing a song on the jukebox that goes

Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live

Red crosses on wooden doors
And if you float you burn
Loose talk around tables
Abandon all reason
Avoid all eye contact
Do not react
Shoot the messengers

This is a low flying panic attack
Sing the song of sixpence that goes

Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live
We know where you live

Stay in the shadows
Cheer at the gallows
This is a round-up
This is a low-flying panic attack
Sing the song on the jukebox that goes

[Chorus]
Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live

[Verse 2]
Red crosses on wooden doors
If you float, you burn
Loose talk around tables
Abandon all reason
Avoid all eye contact
Do not react
Shoot the messengers
This is a low flying panic attack
Sing the song of sixpence that goes

[Chorus]
Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live
We know where you live



The Pilgrim In The Unkown

Stay in the shadows
Cheer at the gallows
This is a round up

This is a low flying panic attack
Sing a song on the jukebox that goes

Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live

Red crosses on wooden doors
And if you float you burn
Loose talk around tables
Abandon all reason
Avoid all eye contact
Do not react
Shoot the messengers

This is a low flying panic attack
Sing the song of sixpence that goes

Burn the witch
Burn the witch
We know where you live
We know where you live

Every Radiohead album has a feel to it in my opinion
Pablo Honey - A studio in late 90s Vancouver
The Bends - A suburbian home studio where many a jam session has been held
OK Computer - Walking through the streets of a semi-dystopian, lifeless city (kinda like the present day)
Kid A - A claustrophobic, small room where someone's gone mad
Amnesiac - See Kid A
Hail To The Thief - A highway just outside a major city
In Rainbows - Floating through deep space, having accepted your eventual fate
The King Of Limbs - A walk through an ancient European forest on a damp April morning
A Moon Shaped Pool - A grey, rainy day where all you can do it stare out the window

We're studying this song in school, the gradual build up through the events in the songs narrative, lyrics, and storytelling is incredible!

Bruh its a 3 min song, not much build up. Just a standard awesome song by Thom Yorke. Listen to every song on his album, "The Eraser". All are this great.

The violins at the end are fantastic. It just gives off a sense of impending dread.
