Radiohead – Down Is The New Up

lyrics

Get yourself together
Let the light pour in
Pour yourself a hot bath, pour yourself a drink
Nothing’s gonna happen without a warning
Down is the new up
What is up, buttercup
Down is the new up
Is the new up
Your services are not required
Your future’s bleak
You’re so last week
Ladies and gentlemen, without a safety net
I shall now perform an Orwellian flip-flop
I shall now amputate, I shall now contort
Because down is the new up
What if I just flip-flopped?
Down is the new up
Is the new up
Caught on candid camera
The chink in your armor
Topsy turvy town, topsy turvy town
Shake your pockets out
Pass it on, pass it down
Topsy turvy town, topsy turvy town
Down Is The New Up (5:10)

Available on: LP7?

Notes:

Down Is The New Up looks like one of the track for a new album, when the song was on included on a tracklisting, written on the blackboard at the Radiohead studio. A picture of that blackboard was posted on September 30th 2005.

On March 8th 2006 the song appeared on the studio’s blackboard, which looked like a shortlist of tracks for the rehearsal sessions for Radiohead’s 2006 tour.

The track premiered at the Hummingbird Centre in Toronto on June 8th 2006.
