“A Wolf at the Door” by Radiohead

“Let me back let me back. I promise to be good. Don’t look in the mirror at the face you don’t recognize. Help me call the doctor. Put me inside.”

Drag him out your window
Dragging out the dead
Singing I miss you
Snakes and ladders
Flip the lid
Out pops the cracker

Smacks you in the head
Knifes you in the neck
Kicks you in the teeth
Steel toe caps
Takes all your credit cards
Get up get the gunge

Get the eggs
Get the flan in the face
The flan in the face
The flan in the face

Don’t you dare
Don’t you dare
Don’t you flan in the face

Take it where the love is given
Take it with a pinch of salt
Take it to the taxman

Let me back let me back
I promise to be good
Don’t look in the mirror
At the face you don’t recognize
Help me call the doctor

Put me inside
Put me inside
Put me inside
Put me inside
Put me inside

Steal all my children
If I don’t pay the ransom

No no no no no no no

Walking like giant cranes ah
With my X-ray eyes I strip you naked
In a tight little world and why are you on the list?
Stepford wives who are we to complain?

Investments and dealers investments and dealers
Cold wives and mistresses
Cold wives and Sunday papers
City boys in first class
Don’t know they’re born little

Someone else is gonna come and clean it up
Born and raised for the job
Someone always does
I wish you’d get up get over get up get over
Turn your tape off

Tells me all the ways that he’s gonna mess me up
Steal all my children
If I don’t pay the ransom
And I’ll never see them again
If I squeal to the cops

So I’m just gonna

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
