Radiohead Lyrics

Melatonin

Don’t forget that you are our son
Now go back to bed

We just know that you’ll do well
You won’t come to harm

Death to all who stand in your way
Wake, my dear

 

SONG INFORMATION

Released: May 1997
Found on: No Surprises CD2 , No Surprises/Running From Demons EP, Airbag/How Am I Driving? EP.

Based first on the keyboards and then a drum line, this track never caught on with fans. It’s an interesting piece, though- the lyrics take the perspective of parents watching over their son. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the body to regulate sleeping and waking cycles, but its production decreases with age. A hormone supplement has now been formulated that compensates for this decrease.

    I take melatonin instead of the PPI meds which

    became too toxic for me to take. And it take 6 milligrams not 0.3

    If one take it an hour or half hour before bed the timing works out. I read about this from http://health-drugs.typepad.com/
