Radiohead – Faust Arp

Somehow the tune of the song matches my mood these days. The somewhat disjoint tune, the mumbled lyrics…

As I was traveling, whether to school, whether in the train, as long as I am alone, this is the tune that loops in my mind. I couldn’t really recall where I heard the tune. I can only remember it tells me to wake up, rise and shine.

Somehow, just somehow, I feel a little sad listening to this.

Lyrics for Radiohead – Faust Arp

One two three four

Wakey, wakey, rise and shine
It’s on again, off again, on again
Watch me fall like dominos
In pretty patterns

Fingers in the blackbird pie
I’m tingling, tingling, tingling
It’s what you feel now
What you ought to, what you ought to
Reasonable and sensible

Dead from the neck up
I guess I’m stuck, stuck, stuck
We thought you had it in you
But no, no, no, for no real reason

Squeeze the tubes and empty bottles
And take a bow, take a bow, take a bow
It’s what you feel now
What you ought to, what you ought to

An elephant that’s in the room
Is tumbling, tumbling, tumbling
In duplicate and triplicate and plastic bags
And duplicate and triplicate

Dead from the neck up
I guess I’m stuck, stuck, stuck
We thought you had it in you
But no, no, no

Exactly where do you get off
Is enough, is enough
I love you but enough is enough, enough
A last stop, there’s no real reason

You got a head full of feathers
You got melted to butter

I didn’t really know the lyrics till I read it. Thom Yorke sort of just mumbled through which created a trance type of effect that I sometimes feel that I am in.
