BONES
Found on: The Bends
Lyrics
Notes
I don't want to be crippled and cracked  Shoulders, wrists, knees and back  Ground to dust and ash  
Crawling on all fours   

When you've got to feel it in your bones  
When you've got to feel it in your bones   

Now I can't climb the stairs
Pieces missing everywhere  
Prozac painkillers   

When you've got to feel it in your bones
When you've got to feel it in your bones   

And I used to fly like Peter Pan
All the children flew when I touched their hands   

When you've got to feel it in your bones  
When you've got to feel it in your bones
Yet another song (like "My Iron Lung") that reflects Thom's obsession with poor health, this is perhaps a product of the physical tribulations of touring. The song looks at Thom's fear of growing old and becoming physically incapacitated. Thom : "We recorded this about four times before we got it right. The original had the ending going on for about a minute and a half, which was something Jonny got from The Fall."
