The Eraser
Thom Yorke Lyrics


Please excuse me but I got to ask
Are you only being nice
Because you want something?
My fairytale arrow pierces
Be careful how you respond
Because you'd not end up in this song
I never gave you an encouragement
And it's doing me in
Doing me in
Doing me in
Doing me in
Doing me in

The more you try to erase me
The more, the more
The more that I appear
The more, the more
The more you try the eraser
The more, the more
The more that you appear

You know the answer so why do you ask?
I am only being nice
Because I want someone, something
You're like a kitten with a ball of yarn
And it is doing me in
Doing me in
Doing me in
Doing me in
Doing me in

The more you try to erase me
The more, the more
The more that I appear
The more, the more
The more I try to erase you
The more, the more
The more that you appear

No, you're wrong, you're wrong
You're wrong, you're wrong
You're wrong, you're wrong
You're wrong

Please excuse me but I got to ask
Are you only being nice
Because you want something
My fairytale arab princess
Be careful how you respond
You might end up in this song
I never gave you an encouragement
And it's doing me in

The more you try to erase me
The more the more
The more that I appear
The more the more
The more you try the eraser
The more the more
The more that you appear

You know all the answers
So why do you ask?
I am only being nice
Because I want someone, something
You're like a kitten with a ball of wool
And it's doing me in

The more you try to erase me
The more the more
The more that I appear
The more the more
The more I try to erase you
The more the more
The more that you appear

No, you're wrong, you're wrong
You're all wrong

i was a katrina volunteer, no cd player, no computer. it was like the whole world happened inside of the bubble we were in. i saw a girl sunbathing, symmetrical stars down her front, fell in love, we saw each other for a week before she gave me her headphones to hear this song. i just laid my head on the folding table in the computer room, and then i listened to it again. she left a week later, with americorp, i waved at her with a toy shark from our night out the night before sticking out of my pants. i waved, and i knew one of the greats was gone. i only have this song, and it's more than i probably deserve. thank you life.

The early 2000s was a strange time, this comment made me reflect on that era when I first heard this.... I hold this song very close to my heart, thanks for sharing.... this is a special song

its funny how in passing we may see more deeply into each other than if we had been married for four decades. we realise that the moment is all we have, so we drop the veils that commonly protect us all from each other. the glint of isis in her eyes, of krishna in mine.
