Everything In Its Right Place Lyrics - Radiohead

Review The Song (46)

Kid A, Kid A, Kid A, Kid A
Everything, everything, everything, everything..
In its right place
In its right place
In its right place
Right place

Yesterday I woke up sucking a lemon
Yesterday I woke up sucking a lemon
Yesterday I woke up sucking a lemon
Yesterday I woke up sucking a lemon

Everything, everything, everything..
In its right place
In its right place
Right place

There are two colours in my head
There are two colours in my head
What is that you tried to say?
What was that you tried to say?
Tried to say.. tried to say..
Tried to say.. tried to say..

Everything in its right place

We are right where we should be | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/28/11

Everything In It's Right Place is Radiohead assuring it's listeners that although this album is quite abstract and distant from their previous works, that it is still an attempt to define truth. There is much reason behind the albums track listings and lyrics and we are again assures right off the back that everything is in it's right place. The opening track is an introduction to a character of Radiohead's creation, being subjected to a unpleasant life, waking and feeling the sour taste of ignorance and conformity. He only see's black and white, categorizing the world as we all do with a narrow mind.

the guy below this comment is right | Reviewer: Devin | 12/19/10

All the below comments are completely irrelevant to point besides the one right below this one. Solely on the fact that he or she is right and has some legit facts. Just saying really but i felt i had to because they are senseless(and im talking about the people talking about lsd trips and other rather stupid comments). Really?

Bad mood | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/4/10

I hate to break it to all of you, but your analysis is completely wrong. This song is about Thom Yorke's 2/3-year bad mood. He stated in an interview that this song described the time between the release of OK Computer and Kid A. The lyrics "Yesterday I woke up sucking a lemon" refers to the facial expression one might put on after tasting the sour, bitter taste of a lemon. He says that every morning he woke up in a bad mood and that lyric best described his facial expression.

Much of it, as most Kid A also means nothing. It is abstract and many of the lyrics were put together by simply drawing them out of a hat.

abstract | Reviewer: simon | 8/16/10

just like there's abstract paint, there is abstract poetry - music on the other hand has always been abstract. there is nothing to understand, there is so much to feel. and when i listen to this song, i just melt into the sounds and thom's childlike pleading voice...

It is definitely a revelation most people come to on LSD. That everything could not exist outside of its 'place' in the universe. With how much they trip I wouldn't be surprised if it relates to that not OCD.

Wowski!! | Reviewer: willy | 1/30/10

"Two colours in my head." Black and white, i've either figured everything out or have no idea at all about what the fuck is going on. Tell me you've not been there."yesterday I woke up sucking on a lemon", when life gives you lemons...Turn it around life is ther for you to do what you see fit with it. THATS WHAT THE SONG IS ABOUT. Get over yourself and enjoy. as far as we know its only one time around.

One of my favorites.. | Reviewer: Paul | 1/25/10

This song is pure poetry, of a wistful, soulful kind. It feels like a mental snapshot, a careful slice taken from a person who is longing for something or someone, be it stability, love or just a clear connection. The final chord progressions are hopeful in tone, so the subject goes some way to resolving itself. I've never read the lyrics before, despite having listened to the song repeatedly since it was released. Reading them hasn't changed my understanding of it one bit.

Its a beautiful piece of music, one of my very favorites.

Irony | Reviewer: Lewis | 1/18/10

I think this song is a lot to do with mental stability and agree with the points below, although I think the phrase "everything in its right place" is ironic and the true sound of the song actually reflects what this phrase is tryin to cover up (in the same way that "nice dream" covers up the fact that it is about a nightmare. The lyrics don't actually make coherent sense when read as a whole but the individual phrases (much like the other songs on the album) have a rather deep but questionable meaning. This is becuase lyrics for many of the songs on Kid A were drawn from a hat and so appear to be in a random order. Other songs on the album (such as In Limbo and National Anthem) capture the disorder in Thom's mind at the time, but probably unintentionally. The fact that Kid A was written whilst Thom was in a bout of writer's block and depression could mean that his mind wasnt in a state of absolute sanity and this may be represented by the fact that samples of the vocals are repeated in places in the song which they are not meant to be (this song live really captures that when jonny fucks about on the Korg Kaos pad), hence the notion that "everything in its right place" is actually supposed to be ironic. The phrase could also be a reference to Thom's OCD-like perfectionism when writing this album as the album famously took ages to record due to Thom not being happy with the result of some of the tracks. That's my take on it but I might be wrong...

It's Simple, Really | Reviewer: Steve | 1/8/10

It's no secret that Kid A was huge departure for Radiohead. This sounded much different from their old stuff. I hated this when it came out.

For me, it seemed too electronic. But it grew on me. And I like the way those electronics create a rich atmosphere that seems to fit the Radiohead sound.

I think the only thing these lyrics mean are secondary to the sound, which is the true focus.

They sound daring and on top of their game.

Hence: everything in it's right place
