Radiohead Lyrics

The Daily Mail

The moon is a rock on a mountain
The lunatics have taken over the asylum
Waiting on the rapture

Singing we’re here to keep your prices down
Feed you to the hounds
To the Daily Mail,

You made a pig’s ear, you made a mistake
Paid off security and got through the gate
You got away with it but we lie in wait

Where’s the truth? What’s the use?
I’m hanging around lost and found
And when you’re here, innocent
Fat chance, no plan
No regard for human life

Keep trying, you’re not right
You’re fast to lose, you will lose
You jumped the queue, go back again

President for life, lord of all
The flies in the sky, the beasts of the earth
The fish in the sea, you’ve lost command



Released: Unreleased
Found on: N/A

“The Daily Mail” made it’s debut when Thom Yorke played a solo set at the Green Party Benefit at the Corn Exchange in Cambridge in February 2010. The song was also played during the Atoms for Peace tour that Spring. In July 2011, “The Daily Mail” was performed by Radiohead as a whole during Nigel Godrich’s From the Basement live session.

  • nice lyrics great job
    i love so much this song

  • Terrorfrykt

    thom needs to move to the left and right faster, other than that it’s a decent song…as long as colin isn’t angry and johnny hogs some spotlight

  • Evan

    I tend to think of MNCs (multinational Corporations) when I read the lyrics.

  • pattywood

    Pretty sure its, the moonies are up on a mountain

  • Tomazbme

    it is definitely “the moonies are up on a mountain”

  • keroppi2

    I’m also going to chime in with it’s “the moonies are up on a mountain”. 100%

  • The Daily Mail is probably the best song ever written. I think it very well summarizes everything that this band has always been about.
