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

Possums At Twilight

This is one of those songs that give such a unique feeling that only this song manages to convey that I absolutely adore.

the bass is insane, makes sense Flea is responsible for it. it gives me such a good tingle whenever i listen to it. the octave jumps are the most standout portions of it.

the percussion is incredibly groovy, and moves excellently with the feeling throughout. the water dripping in the back adds to this groove and makes it even more ethereal.

Thom's voice as well. Oh my god. Without it this song would be just a really good, idm-esque song. His vocal performance with the lines he delivers are hauntingly beautiful. In contrast to the harsher tones of the bass and drum kit, it really ties a beautiful bow on top of this amazing piece of work.

on one hand, this song is so uniquely incredible that it feels like it deserves to be This Song Only, Ingenue. but on the other hand, I would die for more music exactly like this

I wish with all my might that there is a follow up album to this.
There is a severe lack of 5th dimensional music and it's just gaining
popularity right now. This is the best! 3 yrs later and i felt
compelled to write this to inspire anyone that reads this to let go of
the sociotypes and just do this. FFS this is so beyond the common music
archetype it should be entered into record and preserved for a future
date. Thom and Nigel, I compel you to do it again, I cant believe you
made this almost 10 yrs ago and the world is still not ready now in
covid 2021.

That water dripping is sound engineering perfection. It's one of the most memorable production bits I've ever heard in all my years, it's under my skin and brings me back to this masterpiece time and time again

Couldn’t have been said better

Snow White

It’s heavily inspired by an Autechre track.

Azimech

Oh my word. I hadn't even noticed that sound until now. It was just there in the background. Now, it's all I can focus on. Can you just... go back in time and never post this? :P

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.

@Storax Sedan I came here to say this.
And met you.

I guess Meeting People IS Easy.

Jason Sypher

One imagines he did a lot of work on himself, as one does in their forties. His partner of over two decades died of cancer and he met a beautiful woman. Radiohead is the rarest of groups but he has done an incredible job of transcending the confines of rock stardom and allowing himself to explore new avenues of expression: music, electronics, dance, fashion….
