Black Swan
Thom Yorke Lyrics


What will grow crooked, you can't make straight
It's the price that you gotta pay
Do yourself a favor and pack you bags
Buy a ticket and get on the train
Buy a ticket and get on the train

Cause this is fucked up, fucked up
Cause this is fucked up, fucked up

People get crushed like biscuit crumbs
And laid down in the bitumen
You have tried your best to please everyone
But it just isn't happening
No, it just isn't happening

And it's fucked up, fucked up
And this is fucked up, fucked up
This your blind spot, blind spot
It should be obvious, but it's not.
But it isn't, but it isn't

You cannot kick start a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here and I'm today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'm your black swan, black swan
But I made it to the top, made it to the top
This is fucked up, fucked up

You are fucked up, fucked up
This is fucked up, fucked up

Be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up

Lyrics:

What will grow crooked, you can't make straight
It's the price that you gotta pay
Do yourself a favour and pack your bags
Buy a ticket and get on the train
Buy a ticket and get on the train

'Cause this is fucked up, fucked up
'Cause this is fucked up, fucked up

People get crushed like biscuit crumbs
And laid down in the bitumen
You have tried your best to please everyone
But it just isn't happening
No, it just isn't happening

And it's fucked up, fucked up
And this is fucked up, fucked up
This your blind spot, blind spot
It should be obvious, but it's not

You cannot kick-start a dead horse
You just cross yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
'Cause I'm right here, and I'm today
With your fingers you can touch me

I am your black swan, black swan
(But I made it to the top, but I made it to the top)
And this is fucked up, fucked up
Be your black swan, black swan
(But I made it to the top, but I made it to the top)
And for spare parts, we're broken up
You are fucked up, fucked up
This is fucked up, fucked up
We are black swans, black swans
And for spare parts, we're broken up

The best song on THE ERASER, and one of Thom Yorke's career-finest overall.

Layla Durrant

yes and Hearing Damage is also way special

Danny Bedoya

Very groovy.

Joshua Holmes

Hmm

John Sesame

Shut your dirty mouth!!!


Ok your right my bad.

Michael Scott

Peter Smernoff Yeah , Im thinkin' I agree . What's more , it was damn near the almost perfect song to come on for the end credits of the movie A SCANNER DARKLY. It you've seen it then you'll know what I mean & if you haven't , I would highly recommend it..

About 10 years ago or so I was heavily getting into Trip -Hop and dabbling in electronica and exploring all songs in that genre and stumbled across this song one day, this is the first song I heard of Thom Yorke and I was like wtf this is the sound I have been looking for, and have been missing, then I started searching Thom and figured out he was Radiohead, and then mind was blown and ever since listened to all his albums and songs and he is my favorite hands down.

@Nolan Massarello High and Dry is another good one by Radiohead.

He's amazing mate. Musical and ethical guardian. Should be PM, not that douche Johnson.
