Radiohead – Nude

First played acoustic by thom in Tokyo, Japan on 23-01-1998. Played by the band on 29-04-1998 in Dallas, USA. Anounced by thom as “this next song doesn’t have a title yet”, but was already a candidate in 1996 for OK Computer, known as ‘nude’. Thom said he was considering calling it something to the effect of “Failure to Receive Payment Will Put Your House At Risk,” but feared it wasn’t catchy enough.
Years later, the song was finally recorded for Radiohead’s 2007 album In Rainbows.

lyrics

{Lyrics vary, most common version used here}
Don’t get any big ideas
They’re not gonna happen
You paint your house white and fill in the noise
They’ll take something with them
Now that you find it it’s gone
Now that you feel it, you don’t
You’ve gone off the rail {*}
She kisses you with tongues and pulls you to the ground {or sometimes: She stands stark naked and she beckons you to wait}
Don’t go you’ll only want to come back again
So don’t get any big ideas
They’re not gonna happen
You’ll close it off for what you need, she can’t escape you {or sometimes: you’ll go to hell for what your dirty mind is thinking}
And now that you find it, it’s gone
And now that you feel it, you don’t
You’ve gone off the rail {*}
{* or sometimes: And I’m not afraid}
