Radiohead 4 Minute Warning Lyrics

Last updated: 07/13/2012 04:11:50 AM

This is just a nightmare
But soon I'm going to wake up
Someone's gonna bring me 'round

Running from the bombers
Hiding in the forest
Running through the fields

Laying flat on the ground
Just like everybody
Stepping over heads

Running from the underground
This is your warning
4 minute warning

I don't wanna hear it
I don't wanna know
I just wanna run and hide

This is just a nightmare
But soon I'm gonna wake up
Someone's gonna bring me 'round

This is our warning
4 minute warning

The four minute warning was a public alert system conceived by the British Government during the Cold War and operated between 1953 and 1992. The name derived from the approximate length of time from the point at which a Soviet nuclear missile attack against the United Kingdom could be confirmed and the impact of those missiles on their targets.
In this song I <u>believe</u> "4 Minute Warning" is used to signal the end of our world if we don't wake up and become less dependent on harmful power sources and genocide to keep us busy.
