Radiohead Lyrics


Reckoner
You can't take it with you
Dancing for your pleasure

You are not to blame for
Bittersweet distractors
Dare not speak its name
Dedicated to all hu-
All human beings

Because we separate
Like ripples on a blank shore
(In rainbows)
Because we separate
Like ripples on a blank shore
(In rainbows)

Reckoner
Take me with you
Dedicated to all hu-
All human beings

Myxomatosis

This album literally saved my life. It was released less than a year after my Father died and I just wanted to be with him....
Then: IN RAINBOWS lifted me like a frickin religion.


My Father has been dead going on 20 years and I am still messed up. I have had a hard time dealing with the day he died and him making me go home from the hospital "to get paperwork", just for him to die while I was in the elevator to the parking lot.
2 years ago with Videotape on repeat, it hit me. He did not want me see him actually die. His 4 year cancer battle was enough. After all, I was his only child, caregiver, maid, FRIEND, shrink, and nurse.
I was so angry at him for so long for making me leave... Yet, Radiohead writes a song about it...

If you want to know about the pain of telling someone you love that it's okay to let go and die, well...
Radiohead did that too (Thom),
Give Up the Ghost.
I cannot listen to that song often.
Dawn Chorus is the other.

"Okay, so we need one guitarist to shake a tambourine and a one to shake a lemon. I'll be playing guitar"

@Myxomatosis Ed going solo was not a mark against the band or done out of any resentment. He’s said numerous times that it’s been the great joy of his life to have been a part of Radiohead. And I don’t know what interview you were reading, but He said ‘a part of him will die’ if he didn’t do a solo project, not that he would die if he didn’t get out of the band because his experience was so awful… while I agree either way it’s a bit melodramatic, you’ve twisted the sentiment I think. Also, thom had gone solo more than once, Johnny has been doing his own thing for years, but Ed gets shade from you for doing the same thing? It just sounds like you have it out for the guy, which is weird considering, you don’t know him and he was part and still is part of a band you seem to admire quite a bit.

If you've ever seen any footage of RH interacting, you'll know that the others are all shit scared of Thom, so what he sez goes.
