Radiohead The Daily Mail Lyrics

Radiohead The Daily Mail Staircase single

The moon is a rock on a mountain
The lunatics have taken over the asylum
Waiting on the rapture

Singing we’re here to keep your prices down
Feed you to the hounds
To the Daily Mail,
Together
Together

You made a pig’s ear, you made a mistake
Paid off security and got through the gate
You got away with it but we lie in wait

Where’s the truth? What’s the use?
I’m hanging around lost and found
And when you’re here, innocent
Fat chance, no plan
No regard for human life

Keep trying, you’re not right
You’re fast to lose, you will lose
You jumped the queue, go back again

President for life, lord of all
The flies in the sky, the beasts of the earth
The fish in the sea, you’ve lost command

The Daily Mail / Staircase - Single - Radiohead

    Actually, the first line is:
    “The moonies are up on the mountain”
    Moonies is a term used to describe members of the Unification Church. This goes along with the third line of the song, which is “waiting on the rapture.”
    Rapture, of course, is supposedly the transport of believers from earth to heaven at the Second Coming of Christ.
