Radiohead Lyrics

India Rubber

Did it all for you to say
You never wanted me that way
Now the dogs have had their meat
I think I’ll go plug in the mains

I tumble like a clown
Before your baying hounds
I supplicate myself into your hands

When you spare a make up smile
I’m instantly your biggest fan
How was I to know
That you practiced it beforehand?

I tumble like a clown
Before your baying hounds
I supplicate myself into your hands

 

SONG INFORMATION

Released: May 1995
Found on: Fake Plastic Trees CD1

This very experimental B-side is based largely on Phil’s heavy drumming. The lyrics wander all over the place, but there are still some memorable lines. The song closes with laughter, blending after a moment with the sounds of people talking and generally making noise – a party atmosphere. 

When asked on the official RH message board about who was laughing at the end, Colin replied,”it’s jonny laughing at one of his own jokes as usual that he’s nicked from stephen fry or some radio four light ents programme from the last thirty years.”
