Radiohead – Up On The Ladder

lyrics

i’m stuck in the tardis
trapped in hyperspace
one minute snake charming
the next in a motorcade

all the right moves in
and in the right percent
watch me dance like puppet
you can almost see the strings

give me an answer
give me a line
i’ve been climbing up this ladder
i’ve been wasting my time

climb up the ladder
up the ladder
up
climb, climb up the ladder
up the ladder
up on the ladder
it’s my time to escape
up on the ladder
away from your mistake
up on the ladder
to call out the pain
up on the ladder
you’re all the fucking same
oh, you let the people down
you let the people down
you let the people down
oh, you let the people down
you let the people down
you let the people down
