Decks Dark
Radiohead Lyrics


Then in your life, there comes the darkness
There's a spacecraft blocking out the sky
And there's nowhere to hide
You run to the back and you cover your ears
But it's the loudest sound you've ever heard
And are we trapped? Rag-doll, cloth people
We are helpless to resist
Into our darkest hour

But it was just a laugh, just a laugh
Just a laugh, just a laugh
Even at this angle
And so we crumble
A ten ton head, made of wet sand
This dread circumference
You gotta be kidding me
The grass grows over me
Your face in the glass, in the glass
It was just a laugh, just a laugh
It's whatever you say it is
Split infinity

And into your life, there comes a darkness
And a spacecraft blocking out the sky
And there's nowhere to hide
You run to the back and you cover your ears
But it's the loudest sound you've ever heard
Into your darkest hour

When you've had enough of me
When you've had enough of me
Sweet darling

When you've had enough of me
When you've had enough of me
Sweet darling
Sweet darling
Sweet darling
Sweet darling

The lyrics to Subterranean Homesick Alien are

I wish that they'd swoop down in a country lane
Late at night when I'm driving
Take me on board their beautiful ship
Show me the world as I'd love to see it

The song pictures an optimistic look towards the unkown. Since the protoganist feels out of place in this world he welcomes the aliens and wishes for his abduction. 19 years later Thom would write


Then into our life, there comes the darkness
There's a spacecraft blocking out the sky
And there's nowhere to hide
You run to the back and you cover your ears
But it's the loudest sound you've ever heard


which is basically the antithesis to his previous work. Indeed, this whole album captures an atmosphere of decay and futility. This parallel to their previous work is one my favorites moments of Radiohead's discography.

[Chorus]
Then into your life, there comes a darkness
There's a spacecraft blocking out the sky
And there's nowhere to hide
You run to the back and you cover your ears
But it's the loudest sound you've ever heard
And all we trapped rag doll cloth people
We are helpless to resist
Into our darkest hour

[Verse]
But it was just a laugh, just a laugh
Just a laugh, just a laugh
Even at this angle
And so we crumble
A ten ton head, made of wet sand
Oh, this dread circumference
You've gotta be kidding me
The grass grows over me
Your face in the glass, in the glass
It was just a laugh, just a laugh
It's whatever you say it is
In split infinity

[Chorus]
Then into your life, there comes a darkness
And a spacecraft blocking out the sky
And there's nowhere to hide
You run to the back and you cover your ears
But it's the loudest sound you've ever heard
Into your darkest hour


[Outro]
When you've had enough of me
When you've had enough of me
Sweet darling
When you've had enough of me
When you've had enough of me
Sweet darling
Sweet times
Sweet darling
Sweet times

It's been nearly 4 years and this still feels like "the new album."

egg

Lol I just kinda realized it wasn’t:
Feels so new

Nikki Holmes

Certainly new to me considering I did not hear it until I saw Ozark, episode 1 last night.

Esperanza Vence!

I’m obsessed 💕⭐️🍻

First time. I love it.

T2020

Good news is 2020 is an absolute shiet show. An emotional dumpster dive. A muse's wet dream. I'm sure there is a lot of writers riding the roller coaster as we speak.

If you knew this song before Ozark and you hear it on Ozark or of nowhere you'll get goosebumps like a cactus.
