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

Peter Smernoff

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

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..

Jiggy Gnorrus

Friend stole this album from me a few years . I saw him out at the gas station .i confronted him and he punched me with brass knuckles.I pulled my 38 and shot him once in the face once in the throat. He died in transit. I was charged with murder 2. Plead out to manslaughter did 15 months

canyon nephrite

Fly free you funky bird!

Sarah O'Shea

That's not a bad plea honestly. If I didn't live in VT (where everyone just ends up a missing person) I'd go to CA cuz u can straight up murder someone n get less than a years time over there.

Louis Bernardo

Well that's fucked up, fuh hu upped
