Radiohead Lyrics


Sleight of hand
Jump off the end
Into a clear lake
No one around

Just dragonflies
No one gets hurt
You’ve done nothing wrong

Slide your hand
Jump off the end
The water’s clear and innocent
The water’s clear and innocent




Released: February 18, 2011
Found on: The King of Limbs

    It is “dragonflies fantasized” according to the lyrics in the Newspaper Album newspaper.

  • Ebizlappy

    oh god I can’t believe how much I love Radiohead. How did they know all about me before the wrote eight albums all about every mood I have? It’s just genius… genius…

  • Ss.

    Fly to the side makes more sense.

  • keith

    why does this song make me cry?
    its just a few words in a few lines 
    yet tears fall from my eyes
    and i am no cry baby

    hello everyone,

    i just wanted to say some things here.

    i live in Turkey, i am now 31 years old, …i am a calm person, emotional one. i have had lots of thoughts, beliefs, rights and wrongs in my life. and i have found almost all of those things within the lyrics of Radiohead. what i am trying to say is that i was grown up in a completely different culture, in a completely different environment, with completely different people, but we can meet at the lyrics, in the songs of Radiohead…

    isn’t that the power of Music?

    i have been living with Thom’s wonderful voice since i was 15 and i never get bored of his any songs…

    yes, Codex is one of my favorite like How to disappear Completely, Pyramid Song and Videotape….

    fantasize makes sense if you put it in the context of
    no one around, just dragonflies.

    fantasize, no one gets hurt, you’ve done nothin wrong

  • Camuscat92

    Because it conjures up images of being alone, innocence lost, losses, endings- beautiful vulnerability at its finest-

  • Camuscat92

    I was just listening to all 4- similiar…some subtle differences. Linked by a sombre yet beautiful theme that echoes in my mind…

  • Camuscat92

    Who the fuck cares…just enjoy the beauty of the song and accept all projections of the human mind.

    For someone who cant read music, he can certainly create beautiful music. Life is good but it’s even better with Radiohead in it. Thanks guys

  • Derplomat

    I really think it’s “fan to the side.” 🙂
