"Planet Telex" is the first track off of English band Radiohead's second album, The Bends.

BackroundEdit

This song was the only song off the album that was written during the recording sessions. The song was a shift towards the more electronic sound of albums like Kid A and Amnesiac. The song was recorded while the band was drunk, and Thom Yorke sang the vocals while laying down intoxicated. The song was originally called "Planet Xerox", but was changed because Xerox is a trademarked word.

LyricsEdit

You can force it but it will not come
You can taste it but it will not form
You can crush it but it's always here
You can crush it but it's always near
Chasing you home saying
Everything is broken
Everyone is broken
You can force it but it will stay stung
You can crush it as dry as a bone
You can walk it home straight from school
You can kiss it, you can break all the rules
But still...
Everything is broken
Everyone is broken
Everyone is, everyone is broken
Everyone is, everything is broken
Why can't you forget?
Why can't you forget?
Why can't you forget?
