Black Swan Lyrics - Thom Yorke

Review The Song (2)



What will grow crooked you can't make straight
It's the price that you've gotta pay
Do yourself a favour and pack your bags
Buy a ticket and get on the train
Buy a ticket and get on the train

'cause this is fucked up, fucked up
'cause this is fucked up, fucked up

People get crushed like biscuit crumbs
And laid down in the bitumen
You have tried your best to please everyone
But it just isn't happening
No, it just isn't happening

And that is fucked up, fucked up
And this is fucked up, fucked up
This is your blind spot, blind spot
It should be obvious, but it's not

You cannot kick start a dead horse
You just cross yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here and I'm today
With your fingers you can touch me

I am your black swan, black swan
And this is fucked up, fucked up
We are black swans, black swans
And for spare parts we're broken up

You are fucked up, fucked up
This is fucked up, fucked up
We are black swans, black swans
And for spare parts we're broken up

The best | Reviewer: ßìk.. | 5/22/10

This is one of only two songs I consider the best songs ever made.Another one is In Limbo(Radiohead).This song seems so simple but is quite complex.Thom Yorke has the best voice in the World.He should make more solo albums like 'The Eraser'.But he shouldn't break up his band Radiohead either.



A Scanner Darkly | Reviewer: Will | 8/20/08

I think this song is quite obviously about Thom's fascination with drugs and why people choose to use them. It became apparent to me whilst watching the film the animated film "A Scanner Darkly". the film, made in 2006, directed by Richard Linklater, stars Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey. Jr, Rory Cochrane and Woody Harrelson and the song features in the closing moments and end credits of the film. The very first line, "What will grow crooked you can't make straight, It's the price that you've gotta pay." I think says that no matter how long some people may spend in rehab, they will never completely be fixed from many long term effects drugs have but people still do them anyway because the high is worth it.

Watch the film or read the book. They're both fucking genius.
