Radiohead - Subterranean Homesick Alien Lyrics




The breath of the morning
I keep forgetting
The smell of the warm summer air

I live in a town
Where you can't smell a thing
You watch your feet
For cracks in the pavement

Up above
Aliens hover
Making home movies
For the folks back home

Of all these weird creatures
Who lock up their spirits
Drill holes in themselves
And live for their secrets

They're all uptight
Uptight.. [x7]

I wish that they'd swoop down in a country lane
Late at night when I'm driving
Take me on board their beautiful ship
Show me the world as I'd love to see it

I'd tell all my friends
But they'd never believe me
They'd think that I'd finally lost it completely

I'd show them the stars
And the meaning of life
They'd shut me away
But I'd be all right
All right..

I'm just uptight
Uptight.. [x7]

Radiohead Subterranean Homesick Alien Comments
  1. FeNsTa

    Johnny Greenwood is one of the most underrated players ever. His riffs and use of FX bring every song alive with atmosphere, F'kin legend.

  2. eric petanque52

    Muse leur doit tout

  3. Andy Williams

    November 2019 and this is still a masterpiece. We were very lucky to get an album like OKC. Phenomenal album

  4. NNJ

    "They'd shut me away
    But I'd be alright"

  5. George Yacoub

    this song is so surreal on acid

  6. Izet Yusein

    Controversial opinion, I like the live version of Subterranean Homesick Alien a little more than the album version of the same song.

  7. Jason Barbush

    subterrnean homesick blues in another dimension

  8. telly addicts

    Listening to this on the 7.00 am bus as the moon, still bright in the sky, hides behind all of the fog and the trees.

  9. Matthew Roy

    crazy underrated song and band!

  10. Sumthwing

    This song is the best if you listen at night in the dark.

  11. Carlito Gio

    The guitar is making sounds that soothes my soul. So relaxing ♥

    Oh
    I wish that they'd swoop down in a country lane
    Late at night when I'm driving
    Take me on board their beautiful ship
    Show me the world as I'd love to see it
    I'd tell all my friends but they'd never believe me
    They'd think that I'd finally lost it completely
    I'd show them the stars and the meaning of life
    They'd shut me away

    Alright
    I'm alright
    Alright
    I'm just

  14. sidney pasquarelli

    A very good song from a very good album!

  15. nerdie new

    Am i high?

  16. Fish Smell Bad

    Why is it that I can't find the studio version anywhere on YouTube...

  17. Jom63110

    Colin bass work is utterly underrated, his contribution literally drives rhythmic part of the song.

  18. mike cummons

    moooooooooooooooney

  19. Eric Widder

    15 years ago I ate mushrooms for the first time and walked on the beach late at night by myself and listed to this album for the first time, this song made me unload tears. I'll never forget that moment for as long as I live.

  20. Miglior Store

    Jokes that a time machine can always makes at you.

  21. Jael Vasquez

    has anyone noticed in the description on song it says creep(live)

  22. MartyStudios

    This song is the favourite one of my Area 51's alien

  23. Emersyn Wood

    This song is something else

  24. Michael Miller

    Love it.
    I wish they'd swoop down and take me on board their beautiful ship too.
    I mean...I'm part alien after all uncle

  25. Jaja Vosbein

    This song made me so light ... especially John’s guitar parts

  26. DreamGyrl360

    I can't even imagine hearing them live. My head would explode.

  27. John Borowski

    one more time here only to express my infinite love for OK Computer, Radiohead and all their stuff.

  28. looking for my dad

    This is what I will be hearing in Area 51

  29. lorenzo urbani

    Please someone send this song into the deep space. Any alien intelligence would love it.

  30. Deer sea Heraklorne

    This song is super spacey and god damn is it euphoric. Could give a shit what we’re even singin about. Aliens? I don’t care

  31. Jim Lambrick

    Gives me chills every time.

  32. Will Haley

    back when 240p was considered high quality

  33. Philosophiezerstörer Kant

    The power of Lydian...

  34. Esteban Muro

    Beautiful drumming from Phil

  35. Jared Valtierra

    Pink Floyd Stile?

  36. Jack Lambert

    Something clicked during the making of The Bends and they went not just to the next level but soared to the best band in history. The music got better and better each and every album for sure but it’s still pretty awesome to listen to the 1995 set live at Astoria when The Bends was brand new. Got to use Bose wireless though.

  37. Izet Yusein

    I really want to see this band live.

    Chelsy Greenwood Horan

    Same mate, same :')

  38. leah buh

    "high quality"

  39. midlander4

  40. Moh Afzal

    I wish an alien ship would come out of nowhere and swallow me whilst I’m driving in a Volvo estate down the countryside

  41. Squigin

    This is such an amazing song.

  69. Sirius White

    such a pretty song. Odd how it didn't get a lot more media air time.

  70. Eric Beaulieu

    Great,spacey and wonderful,ethereal song.Not unlike all of RaDioHeaD's most wonderful songs.

  71. nesfan8

    This and Electioneering are the unsung heroes of OK Computer

  72. eJacob Cornelius

    Of all my favorite Radiohead songs, this is my favorite. EOB and Johnny in the zone, rhythm section perfection, and Thom being Thom.

    One of my favorite songs from OK Computer

  77. sora / celeste pissenlit

    I stopped listening to Radiohead on a daily basis because their songs are the most painful and joyful at the same time, and I can't take it. But sometimes I return to feel this again. And every time it gets more and more divine

  78. GuitaRicky84

    Ok computer is the dark side of the moon of the ‘90s

  79. Clyde

    Wow this really grabs and holds you

  80. John DeF

    I remember seeing this on tv not knowing song or band and just being blown away by the Pink Floyd intensity of it. Bought the album and was not disappointed...this is a time capsule song...brilliant.

  81. Dank Mheems

    I always thought this track was so magical. I'd put my headphones on and fall asleep. Wish I still had the CD.

  82. The Minimalist

    0:40 Thanos is a good drummer.

  87. Михаил Сергопольцев

    "Засекреченный инопланетянин, скучающий по дому"

    Дыхание утра,
    я продолжаю забывать запах теплого утреннего воздуха.
    Я живу в городе, где ты ничего не почувствуешь,
    ты осторожно обходишь трещины на тротуаре.

    Высоко-высоко парят инопланетяне
    и снимают домашнее видео для семьи, когда вернутся домой.
    Из всех этих странных созданий, кто заключил взаперти свои души,
    сверлят дыры в самих себе и живут ради секретов.

    Они все напряжены, напряжены, напряжены, напряжены,
    напряжены, напряжены.

    Я бы хотел, чтоб они приземлились вниз на дорогу поздно ночью, когда я еду на машине, взяли меня на борт их прекрасного корабля,
    показали бы мне мир, каким бы я хотел его видеть.
    Я б рассказал всем моим друзьям, но они мне не поверят никогда.
    Они подумают, что я окончательно сошел с ума. Я бы показал им звезды и смысл жизни, они бы меня изолировали, а я все равно был бы в порядке,
    в порядке,
    в порядке.
    Я всего лишь напряжен, напряжен,
    напряжен, напряжен,
    напряжен, напряжен,
    напряжен, напряжен.
