lyrics

In the next world war
A jackknifed juggernaut
I am born again
In the neon sign
Scrolling up and down
I am born again

In an interstellar burst
I am back to save the universe

In a deep deep sleep
Of the innocent
I am born again
In a fast German car
I'm amazed that I survived
An airbag saved my life

In an interstellar burst
I am back to save the universe

In an interstellar burst
I am back to save the universe

In an interstellar burst
I am back to save the universe

AIRBAG (LIVE FROM HUXLEY'S berlin - 03-11-1997) (4:44)
available on: no surprises

notes: Working title: last night an airbag saved my life (after Indeep's "Last night a DJ saved my life"). Jonny: "Thom & Phil worked a whole day with the computer to cut up the drums and try to make it sound like DJ Shadow."

Thom suggested that Airbag, the opening track on OK Computer, should begin with sleigh bells. The band thought it was a horrible idea, but Yorke insisted and eventually got his way. "I can't believe I got away with that," he says. "Even I didn't think it was a good idea." (AP, Sep. 2003)
