cuttooth

has everyone heard this song???

holy shit, I love this song, it's one of my favorite radiohead tunes (and I do mean 'tunes')

I love the piano -- so upbeat... shimmering almost, and the lyrics are just right for a sing-along!!! go on, give her a try!

"cuttooth" 5:24

I will leave the wallpaper life
And run away to the foreign legion
I would leave the wallpaper life
And run away to the foreign legion

And as the tanks roll into town
As the tanks roll into town
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you

As the tanks roll into town
As the tanks roll into town
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you

I don't know why I feel so tongue-tied
I don't know why I feel so skinned alive

Hold you till the arms are sore
Until you cannot feel it any more
Hold you till the arms are sore
Until you find an open door

I build you up to pull you down
Tie you to your feet and watch you drown
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you
A little bit of knowledge will destroy you

I build you up to pull you down
Tie you to the stake and watch you burn in hell
In hell

I don't know why I feel so tongue-tied
I don't know why I feel so skinned alive

I'll find another skin to wear
I'll find another skin to wear


alright, so they're not the most uplifting of lyrics, but there is a peculiar sense of hope in the way this song is arranged, give it a try, if you don't like it, no hard feelings (but it does mean you're sub-human and you'll have to work on it)

thank you, that is all

Wanderer, couldnt agree more. Cuttooth is a most gorgeous beast of a song. It actually reminds me of Heros by Bowie. This insistent beat/piano riff (not saying Heros had piano) and lyrics about breaking free or holding on, or something.

Try listening to it while driving headlong through the middle of the city at night. It's quite a trip.

You know some songs sound like ones by Frank Sinatra
But there's no place like... NOO YAWK

You guys are confusing me.
I downloaded that song, or what I thought was that song a while back and those arent the lyrics Thom sings.I actually think he sounds like Jeff Buckley in spots.
There is piano and its a real vocal tune.
The lyrics were something about
"I can't pretend
choose how it ends
you slipped away"
There's a staticy sorta guitar thing happening too.
What the hell is this song then?

Ditto. The song I have downloaded still sounds like Radiohead, but the lyrics are off.

Oh yeah is definitely Radiohead, wannabe.
Bizarre..
Must be like that SBS thats apparently sung by both Billy Corgan, Thom Yorke and The Edge.

I really like worrywort, thanks for the suggestion. The sound to me is nostalgic of video games.

it's such a beautiful day

I wondered if video game was the right description. Now I know!

Any thoughts as to how or why Cuttooth got left off Kid Amnesiac? It's such a beautiful song. Seems like it would have fit all right on one of the albums, but I guess the fellas didn't think so and they would certainly know better than I (as would many of you). Just asking.
