Radiohead Lyrics


Are you such a dreamer,
To put the world to rights?
I'll stay home forever,
Where two and two always makes a five

I'll lay down the tracks,
Sandbag and hide,
January has April showers,
And two and two always makes a five

It's the Devil's way now,
There is no way out,
You can scream and you can shout,
It is too late now

Because you have not been
Payin' attention,
Payin' attention,
Payin' attention,
Payin' attention

Yeah I feel it, I needed attention,
Payin' attention,
Payin' attention,
Payin' attention

Yeah I need it, I needed attention,
I needed attention,
I needed attention,
I needed attention

Yeah I love it, the attention,
Payin' attention,
Payin' attention,
Payin' attention

(Soon, oh)
I try to sing along,
I get it all wrong,
'Cause I'm not,
'Cause I'm not
I swat 'em like flies,
But like flies the buggers keep coming back

But I'm not,
Oh hail to the thief,
Oh hail to the thief

But I'm not,
But I'm not,
But I'm not,
But I'm not

Don't question my authority or put me in the dock,
'Cause I'm not,
'Cause I'm not

Oh go up to the king, and the sky is falling in,
But it's not,
But it's not
But it's not

Maybe not,
Maybe not

@Justin Simmons Thanks for the recommendations! Surprisingly I actually have heard of most of those artists and are already bookmarked and being prioritised - mainly the more popular and iconic ones like Bowie and The Smiths etc (both of which I love). But there's some I haven't heard of such as Cut Copy, Jethro Tull and a few others. I'm looking forward to checking them all out, especially Destroyer. Maybe not super soon (judging by the ever growing list on the paper right in front of me) but definitely will eventually, all bookmarked just in case I forget.

I'm also the same as you in terms of being fairly patient and giving most things a shot. I'm not one to normally skip certain albums even if it's universally hated, even if I regret it afterwards sometimes. That being said, I normally tend to gloss over or skip live albums/renditions of artist's songs simply because I prefer studio versions most of the times. Which leads me to ask - should I factor in Anco's live albums during my first listen of the discography? Or check them out a later time (not as much of a deal and priority)? And sorry if this sounds stupid, but by "backwards chronologically", do you mean I go back to Strawberry Jam afterwards and backwards, or all the way to their debut and forward (the latter being how I first experienced TH, starting with the iconic Remain in Light - 77' and forwards). I'll be sure to start their discography immediately after I finish the final Pink Floyd album, maybe tomorrow.

Speaking of Pink Floyd, I completely agree that Animals is amazing, made me want to check out George Orwell's Animal Farm even more to be honest. Its tied at first with TDSOTM and The Wall for me. Meddle is also great and kind of underrated, WYWH being slightly better and very awesome. But the experience overall has been great, not quite as consistent as Radiohead's discography in my opinion, maybe a little unfair to say considering RH were inspired by them quite a bit (and a bunch of other artists).

Also I'm glad you've enjoyed the Prodigy tracks so far! The Fat of the Land is often considered their magnum opus, one of the best electronic/dance albums ever, but to me 'Music for the Jilted Generation' is on par and maybe their most consistent (both 10/10 albums nevertheless). A pinnacle in terms of Rave albums, with a far darker and sinister vibe in comparison to other electronic albums being released at the time. Has a pretty nostalgic feel to it too, reminds me of Burial in some ways. A personal favourite of mine however is their 'Invaders Must Die' Album. Not held as high in regard to their previous material, but still a classic in my eyes. The album that introduced me to The Prodigy and got me into electionic music. I can't get tired of any of the songs from it, or any Prodigy song for that matter.

You can't go wrong with any Prodigy album though really, each one is chock full of bangers and always go hard - while also trying to change up their style a bit on each and every project. Liam Howlett is a genius. Their debut for example, might sound a little dated at this point, but the beats and bass are too good to ignore. Highly recommended, even their most recent stuff I find awesome (even if they aren't as influential or critically acclaimed as their peak albums), highlights on every project.

Again, thanks for the recommendations. I feel like I may be typing too much as well at this point, lol.

@ScorpionGaming Yo lol I didn't even get a notification you replied wtf

I agree though. For new music I like to just completely dive in head first with album #1 then move forward. Then again, I'm extremely patient so even if I'm not a huge fan of (x) album I may enjoy the next few in the discography. Kinda like with Radiohead I heard creep and I thought "oh let me give this album a listen" and I was pretty underwhelmed, but everything just gets otherwordly after The Bends. And nah there's nothing wrong with just hearing a few songs and liking those until you get a chance to really listen to an artist. No one can be expected to know all the music in the world lol. There's still a shit ton of artists I haven't listened to any full albums of. INXS comes to mind. You should definitely check out New Order's Power Corruption and Lies Lp Though i think you'd really like it.

In terms of recommending an album to start with for Anco, it's difficult because they have so many styles. But usually the one I always tell people to start with is Merriweather Post Pavillion because it will give you a clear idea of their sound. If you like MPP, go backwards chronologically. It just gets better from there. Exactly what you said about The Prodigy is true for me about these guys.

Speaking of the Prodigy, holy shit these songs slap dude. I listened to Firestarter, Smack my Bitch Up, and Breathe. Gonna have to bookmark the Fat of the Land album! I'm surprised I have never heard of these guys...

Ah I envy you. Truly discovering Floyd for the first time is a trip I wish I could experience again. Animals is my personal favorite, it's a masterpiece As far as recommendations dude, holy shit, I have a litany of albums I would love to recommend to you.

Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna...
Dinosaur Jr. - You're Living All Over Me
Devendra Banhart - Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon
Pearl's Before Swine - Baklava
Kate Bush- Hounds of Love
Fiona Apple - When the pawn...
Destroyer's ENTIRE DISCOGRAPHY. I'd start with Streethawk though it's incredible
Sun Kil Moon - Ghosts of the Great Highway
The Microphones - The Glow Pt. 2
Fleetwood Mac - Then Play On (and Tusk)
Preston School of Industry - All This Sounds Gas
Cut Copy - Zonoscope
The Smiths - The Queen is Dead
Violent Femmes self titled
The Pixies - Doolittle
Cocteau Twins - Heaven or Las Vegas
Stevie Wonder - Songs in The Key of Life
Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick (and Minstrel in the Gallery)
Bowie - Ziggy Startdust
Led Zeppelin - Houses of the Holy (and II)
Queen - News of the World
Nick Drake - Pink Moon

Holy shit there's so many more but I feel like this is a pretty overwhelming list so I'll end it there wow fuck I typed a lot.



비정한세상

Are you such a dreamer
네가 무슨 세상을 올바르게 바꿀
To put the world to rights?
몽상가인 줄 알아?
I'll stay home forever
나는 차라리 2 + 2= 5가 되는
Where two and two always makes a five
집에 영원히 있을텐데


I'll lay down the tracks
길바닥에 누워있을거야
Sandbag and hide
누군가를 욕하고선 바로 숨어야지
January has April showers
1월에는 4월의 소낙비가 내리고
And two and two always makes a five
2와 2가 만나면 언제가 5가 돼


It's the devil's way now
이젠 더 끔찍해질거야
There is no way out
나갈 방법도 없어
You can scream and you can shout
소리지를 수는 있겠지만
It is too late now
너무 늦었는걸


Because
왜냐하면
You have not been
넌 그때 동안
Paying attention
관심 없었으니까
Paying attention
관심 없었으니까
Paying attention
관심 없었으니까
Paying attention
관심 없었으니까
You have not been
넌 그때 동안
Paying attention
관심 없었으니까
Paying attention
관심 없었으니까
Paying attention
관심 없었으니까
Paying attention
관심 없었으니까
You have not been
넌 그때 동안
Paying attention
관심 없었으니까
Paying attention
관심 없었으니까
Paying attention
관심 없었으니까
Paying attention
관심 없었으니까
You have not been
넌 그때 동안
Paying attention
관심 없었잖아
Paying attention
관심 없었잖아
Paying attention
관심 없었잖아
Paying attention
관심 없었잖아


I try to sing along
따라 부르려 하지만
But the music's all wrong
노래가 다들 달라
Cos I'm not
난 아닌데
I swat em like flies but
그 놈들을 파리처럼 때리지만
Like flies the buggers
그 새끼들은 파리처럼
Keep coming back
계속 돌아오네
But I'm not
난 아니야
Oh, hail to the thief
도둑에게 경배를
Oh, hail to the thief
도둑에게 경배를
But I'm not
난 안할거지만
Don't question my authority or put me in the box
내 권한을 물을 게 아니라면 날 박스 안에 쳐넣어


Cos I'm not
난 아니니까
Oh, go and tell the king, and the sky is falling in
왕한테 가서 하늘이 무너지고 있다고 해
But it's not
사실은 아니지만
Maybe not
아마 아닐거야

Odysseus Crocodilydae

As a matter of joke, the words of this song sound pretty weird joined together with the Pharrell Williams’ Happy lines, giving it an extra sense of harmful procrastination:

Here comes bad news talking this and that
Give me all you get, don’t hold back!
Should have prob’ly warned you, you’d be just fine
No offense to you, don’t waste your time, here’s why:

It’s a devil’s way how
There’s no way out
You can scream and you can shout
But it’s too late now, because

You have not been 
Paying attention (x infinitely many times)

I’m trying to clap along, but I get it all wrong
‘Cause I’m not
Don’t question my authority or put me in the box
‘Cause I’m not

Are you happy?
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof!
Clap along if you feel like a wilderness is the truth!
Crap alone, do you know what happiness is to you?
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you want to do!

Or maybe not?

¿Eres un soñador? 
Are you such a dreamer 

¿Poner el mundo en sus derechos? 
To put the world to rights? 

Me quedaré en casa por siempre 
I'll stay home forever 

Donde dos y dos siempre hacen un cinco
Where two and two always makes a five

Pondré las pistas 
I'll lay down the tracks 

Atrincherarse Y esconderse
Sandbag and hide 

Enero tiene lluvias de abril 
January has April's showers 

Y dos y dos siempre hacen un cinco
And two and two always makes a five

Es el camino del diablo ahora 
It's the devil's way now 

No hay salida 
There is no way out 

Puedes gritar y puedes gritar 
You can scream and you can shout 

Ahora es demasiado tarde
It is too late now

Porque, 
Because, 

No has estado!
You have not been!

Prestando atención 
Payin' attention 

Prestando atención 
Payin' attention 

Prestando atención 
Payin' attention 

Prestando atención 
Payin' attention 

No has estado prestando atención
You have not been paying attention

Prestando atención 
Payin' attention 

Prestando atención 
Payin' attention 

Prestando atención 
Payin' attention 

No has estado prestando atención
You have not been paying attention

Prestando atención 
Payin' attention 

Prestando atención 
Payin' attention 

Prestando atención 
Payin' attention 

No has estado prestando atención
You have not been paying attention

Prestando atención 
Payin' attention 

Prestando atención 
Payin' attention 

Prestando atención oohh
Payin' attention oohh

Trato de cantar 
I try to sing along 

Pero lo entiendo todo mal 
But I get it all wrong 

Cozimnot 
Cozimnot 

Cozimnot
Cozimnot

¡Los mato como moscas pero como moscas los insectores no vuelven! 
I swat 'em like flies but like flies the buggers keep coming back not! 

Pero yo no
But I'm not

Todos saluden al ladrón 
All hail to the thief 

Todos saluden al ladrón
All hail to the thief

Pero yo no 
But I'm not 

Pero yo no 
But I'm not 

Pero yo no 
But I'm not 

Pero yo no
But I'm not

No cuestiones mi autoridad ni me pongas en la caja 
Don't question my authority or put me in the box 

Cozimnot 
Cozimnot 

Cozimnot
Cozimnot

Oh ve y dile al rey que el cielo se está cayendo
Oh go and tell the king that the sky is falling in

Cuando no es 
When it's not 

Pero no lo es 
But it's not 

Pero no lo es 
But it's not 

Tal vez no 
Maybe not 

Tal vez no
Maybe not

@London Walks
I've actually found it near impossible to explain reality to someone suffering from TDS or media induced brainwashing. For instance, there's massive amounts of voter fraud and election meddling caught on video, but you'll never convince them that a full bipartisan audit should take place in the contested states (since the cheating favors their "side"). The media bias is absurdly obvious, but they'll just label you a conspiracy theorist if you mention it (because that's one of their pre-programmed responses).

Trump supporters and patriots need to push back hard against the coming police state. Being passive and praying someone else will save us is not a sufficient deterrent to the "great reset".
