Ingenue
Atoms for Peace Lyrics


You know like the back of your hand
Who let 'em in?
You got me into this mess
You get me out
You know like the back of your hand
Your bell jar
Your collection
Ingenue
You got me into this mess
Fools rushing in, yeah
And they know it

The seeds of the dandelion you blow away
In good time, I hope I pray
If I'm not there now, physically
I'm always before you, come what may
And you know it
Fools rushing in, yeah
Well you know it

Who let them in?
Yeah well you know it
Gone with a touch of your
Gone with a touch of your hand

Move through the moment
Though it betrays
transformations
Jackals and flames
If I knew now what I knew then
Just give me more time I hope and pray
I mistake all you say
The seeds of the dandelion you blow away

I was extremely impressed with the song and the video but I couldn't get what it was about. I tried to examine it, and here is what I've got.
According to my analysis, I may assume that this song depicts the endless process of recreation of the Universe. The word “Ingenue” is translated from Latin as “genuine”. That’s why I think it has nothing to do with a girl or any romantic relationships. As a matter of fact, it might be even a game of syllables “In-ge-nue” – “Ge-nu-ine”. Thus, the author may refer to God, Nature or the Universe.

It seems that the lines “You know like the back of your hand your bell jar, your collection” are appealing to the fact that people are like seeds of the dandelion kept in a God’s jar as a collection. Whilst the lines “The seeds of the dandelion you blow away” accentuate that “God” is constantly playing with his creatures. He blows away the seeds, lets them grow into flowers and picks their seeds up into his jar all over again. These lines represent the endless circle of life and death, a constant reproduction.

The lines “You got me into this mess, so you get me out” and “Fools rushing in” emphasize the author’s irritation towards the whole process. While other “seeds” want to get into God’s collection, the author wants to get out. He wants to break free from this infinite life circle.

The last lines “Gone with a touch of your hand. Move through the moment though it betrays. Transformations. Jackals and flames” may be depicting the process of dying, when a body overcomes certain metamorphoses and where the concept of time and space is being distorted.

It may seem rather ironical that in the last moment the narrator feels unready to die and asks God to give him some more time: “Just give me more time. I hope and pray. I mistake all you say”. While dying the author is figuratively divided into two states - “before death” and “after life”. That might be the reason why he uses such an irrational expression “If I knew now what I knew then”.

If you watch the clip more carefully, you may notice that this process is being visualized quite prominently. It shows not only a life circle but also the duality of the world represented by the union of opposites – a man and a woman, metaphorical Yin-Yang.

Nevertheless, the end of the clip shows that everything comes to its starting point and the process will be inevitably repeated.

You got me into this mess
You get me out
You know like the back of your hand
Your bell jar
Your collection
Ingenue
You got me into this mess
Fools rushing in, yeah
And they know it

The seeds of the dandelion you blow away
In good time, I hope I pray
If I'm not there now, physically

And you know it
Fools rushing in, yeah
Well you know it

Who let them in?
Yeah well you know it
Gone with a touch of your
Gone with a touch of your hand

Move through the moment
Though it betrays 
transformations
Jackals and flames
If I knew now what I knew then
Just give me more time I hope and pray
I mistake all you say
The seeds of the dandelion you blow away

I can't believe how much Thom has grown over the years... If you watch the documentary Radiohead made about life on tour in 1998 called Meeting People Is Hard, you can see how much Radiohead, (Thom especially), were completely drained from being in the spotlight and how absolutely miserable he was. This video as well as the other stuff from King of limbs shows Thom completely free to express himself artistically without the fear of rejection or disapproval.

I don't know what happened in Thom's life between these two periods of time but whatever it was caused him to be much more at peace with himself and his life ... What a lucky guy.

@Artie Milano Thom didn’t get divorced. He lost his wife to cancer.

Hes SO much happier now which is crazy to think since he recently had a divorce. He really gained his own sense of self love I believe the past several years
