Radiohead Lyrics

I Will

I will
Lay me down
In a bunker
Underground

I won’t let this happen to my children
Meet the real world coming out of your shell
With white elephants
Sitting ducks
I will
Rise up

Little babies’ eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes
Little babies’ eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes
Little babies’ eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes
Little babies’ eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes

 

SONG INFORMATION

Released: June 2003
Found on: Hail to the Thief

“I Will” is a song that has been kicking around the Radiohead catalog for a few years. Fans were introduced to this song in RH tour documentary/film Meeting People Is Easy in 1998. In 2001, it appeared that “I Will” was lost and would never be released because the song was reversed and eventually turned in to “Like Spinning Plates” which is found on Amnesiac. If you take “Like Spinning Plates” and reverse it, you will get “I Will”.

The band premiered the song live in Lisbon, Portugal on July 22, 2002 and was recorded soon after for Radiohead’s sixth studio album Hail to the Thief. An alternate version recorded in Los Angeles can be found on the band’s Com Lag EP released in 2004.
The alernate title for this song is “No Man’s Land”.

    the official recording of this ruins the entire song, if you want to listen  to the good version of this song listen to it on the album com lag. I feel the same way about morning bell, the amnesiac version sucks but on kid a it sounds amazing.
