PLANET TELEX
Found on: The Bends
Lyrics
Notes
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, everyone is broken  
Everyone is, everything is broken   

Why can't you forget?
Why can't you forget?  
Why can't you forget?
"Planet Xerox" was this song's original title, but because Xerox was a copyrighted name, Radiohead changed it to "Planet Telex." The only song written in the studio during the Bends sessions, it was recorded one night when the band returned to the studio after drinking a lot of wine. Thom did the vocals lying down, completely drunk. This is the most frequent remixed song in Radiohead's roster.
