Thom Yorke - Atoms For Peace Lyrics




No more going to the dark side
With your flying saucer eyes

No more falling down a wormhole
That I have to pull you out

The wriggling, squiggling worm inside
Devours from the inside out

No more talk about the old days
It's time for something great

I want you to get out
And make it work

So many allies, so many allies
So many allies, so many allies
So feel the love come off of them
And take me in your arms

Peel all of your layers off
I want to eat your artichoke heart

No more leaky holes in your brain
And no false starts

I wanna get out
And make it work

So many allies, so many allies
So many allies, so many allies
So feel the love come off of them
And take me in your arms

I wanna get out
And make it work

I want you to get out
And make it work

I'll be ok

    Atoms For Peace
    No more going to the dark side
    With your flying saucer eyes

    No more falling down a wormhole
    That I have to pull you out

    The wriggling, wiggling worm inside
    Devours from the inside out

    No more talk about the old days
    It’s time for something great

    Want you to get up and make it work?

    So many allies, so many allies
    So many allies, so many allies
    So feel the love come off of them
    And take me in your arms

    Peel all of your layers off
    I want to eat your artichoke heart

    No more leaky holes in your brain
    And no false starts

    I want to get up and make it work

    So many allies So many allies
    So many allies, so many allies
    So feel the love come off of them
    And take me in your arms

    I want to get up and make it work
    Want you to get up and make it work

    Hey it’ll be okay





     Átomos Por la Paz
    No más irte al lado oscuro
    con tus ojos de platillo volador.

    No más caerte en un agujero de gusano
    del que te luego deba sacarte
    .
    El gusano que se mueve y retuerce en tu interior
    devorándote las entrañas.

    Basta ya de hablar de los viejos tiempos,
    es hora de hacer algo grande.

    ¿Quieres pararte y hacerlo funcionar?

    Tantos aliados, tantos aliados.
    Tantos aliados, tantos aliados.
    Siento cómo que se desprende del amor
    y tomame en tus brazos.

    Quítate todas las cascaras,
    Quiero comerme tu corazón de alcachofa.
    No más agujeros en tu cerebro
    ni salidas nulas.


    Quiero levantarme y hacerlo funcionar.
    Tantos aliados, tantos aliados.
    Tantos aliados, tantos aliados.
    Siente el amor que se desprende de ellos
    y tómame en tus brazos.

    Quiero levantarme y hacerlo funcionar.
    ¿Quieres levantarte y hacerlo funcionar?

    Oye, estará bien.

  7. pat logie

    Listening in 2019, still loving it.

  8. ImmaStranger

    Iiiiiii-iiii-iiii-iiii-eeeee-Iiiiii'll be oookaaaay..

    gut seid ihr geworden, wir sind sehr vorsichtig mit der waffe geworden, insbesondere balkan hat uns auf den arsch gesetzt.

  10. Sukaran Kaur

    Unique ;)

  11. je vous merde tous

    Tom york , wookikid the golden age , Le clip est similitude ....

  12. shapes

    this is my favorite radio head song ever

  13. blahblah blahblahb la

    This is nice and all but it smacks of a late twenty-something cat-bitch.

  14. Mr Flibble

    This video is wack and not in a good way. Great song tho

  15. Tanweer Mahdi Hasan

    This song is like a prayer.

  16. On WUN

    What's the link between this with Eisenhower's speech in 1953 ?

  17. Danny Karbon

    On my short list of all time favourites, for certain.

  18. Agadéz 018

    No more going to the dark side with your flying saucer eyes
    No more falling down a wormhole that I have to pull you out
    The wriggling twiggling warmer side
    Devours from the inside out
    No more talk about the old days
    It's time for something great
    I want you to get out
    And make it work
    So many lies
    So many lies
    So many lies
    So feel the love come off of them
    And take me in your arms
    Peel all of your layers off
    I want to eat your artichoke heart.
    No more leaky holes in your brain
    And no more false starts
    I wanna get out
    And make it work
    So many lies
    So many lies
    So many lies
    So feel the love come off of them
    And take me in your arms
    I wanna get out
    And make it work
    I want you to get out
    And make it work
    I'll be ok
    So many lies
    So many lies
    So many lies
    So feel the love come off of them
    And take me in your arms

    Willis Warren

    *worm inside

    eliandra ferreras

    Maybe it's "so many allies" ...no?

    ImmaStranger

    It IS BOTH
    *worm inside.. (wormhole)
    *so many allies

    Thom wrote this about himself after comments by his late wife about his emotional state, per se.

  19. Jem Mace

    So beautiful and a beautifully crafted song.

  20. Shawnqual

    Wonderful! Thank you for this!

  21. Gent Bar

  30. Aldiansyaj Wibiksana

    what the title of this song?

    Gent Bar

    Aldiansyaj Wibiksana metaphor

  31. Serkan Ovat

    why the fuck im crying

  32. lolilol A

    this piece of music is pure magic ... thom must receive his inspiration directly from god

    Stephen Austin

    I love how as soon as someone doesn't understand something great, they automatically attribute it to a supernatural higher power.

    Catalyst

    @Stephen Austin don't take it too seriously, jonny

    h4zz

    thom is god

    Samuel Houghton

    @h4zz thom is an enlightened buddha

    Alec Misra

    @Catalyst he's a man barely alive

  33. FranSunset

    Is this a Fan Video??? :OOO

    Carcosa

    i hope no, is great

  34. Unpopular Opinion

    Even as a man, this song makes me want to cry. This video is pure Thom inspired and it goes together with the song perfectly.

    Jem Mace

    Me too. That's what wonderful music and a true artists eyes and ears can do.

  35. pearlrossi101

    Beautiful video, thank you. <3

  36. rudishangrila

    Great song, like most of the work of Thom Yorke and radiohead. You could like or not, but I think that the artistic issue, and the creatività in any song they put is to another level on today music.

  37. Chayne Cotharn

    He sings so beautifully in this song as well as Go Slowly

  38. Daniel Oglesby

    This video is rad- I'm really digging the lo-fi quality of it, and the editing is superb.

  39. Amruta Rokade

    This reminds me so much of Norman McLaren's work!

  40. SAT0R1

    worst video ever

  41. monkey dangus

    The Eraser is one of the greatest albums of all time, to me.  I don't think it's rated highly enough.  I think people don't realize.  I guess it's kind of subtle in a way.  I think it's Thom's best solo stuff to date, anyway.

    Jem Mace

    Agreed.

    X048J

    Agreed till Anima

    K-leb

    Thoughts on Anima?

    Adam Lee

    Thom is an archangel in his way of delivery, in voice and tune, truly talented and totally underated ,regards Adam

  42. piero minzera

    sempicemente slendida........ipnotica

  43. Paul Hopkins

    the research worked...listen

  44. José Ignacio Cuevas Barrientos

    It isn't bad Yorke... But what happend here because this isn't to the level of Bloom, Everything In Its Right Place, Supercollider, Lotus Flower, Nude, Weird Fishes/Arpeggi, 2+2=5, Pyramid Song, There There, Fake Plastic Trees, Karma Police or anyone, for your next album use this as an example of "Goal"

    Bad Username

    I can never say anything bad about this song because it holds so much sentimental value and too many memories. And the little buzz in the background that tickle your ears of you wear headphones... I love it.

    Jules Gilmour

    Fuck off.. lol

    ACS ONE

    the fuck are you on

    Jem Mace

    La la la fingers in ears, don't ever judge music.. its all down to the interpretation and you obviously don't get it right now. Maybe never will but still, don't judge.
    To me it's perfect.
    I play drums and there's no studio kit or what we older people (lol) are used to, format like... but its still a wonderful arrangement.

    LumabeeLumabop 4321

    This aint radiohead. Different band

  45. yeyu ska

    Juancito Limon

  50. Niccolò Salvatori

    beautifullllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  51. Bill Vreemde

    This song, this video are so sensitive and touchy. Thom Yorke always knows how to express the most complex feelings and thoughts of the human being, Atoms for Peace is such of a powerful band!

    Mr Flibble

    This isn't by the band atoms for peace. It's by Thom Yorke, he named his band after this song

  52. Carrie Ann H

    Terrific

  53. wind84

    hello, try to send this video work to someone close to Thom, because it is really good work , congrats, keep it up

  54. zona604

    its this the official video sorry for my ignorance

  55. Ratamaniatico

    Notable.

  56. Zayna Marjieh

    Amazing.

  57. sidchaos1988

    this is from thome yorkes solo album flea did tour with thom under the name atoms for peace (which is also a song of the solo album) but flea had nothing to do with the recording of the song or the solo album. Flea does however play on the new atoms for peace album coming out

  58. Nat

    Because there was also a Band called Atoms for piece. They played Thom Yorke's The Eraser Album live.
    Wiki reference: Atoms For Peace is an experimental rock & electronic supergroup formed in late 2009 in Los Angeles, California. The group consists of Radiohead lead singer Thom Yorke, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker and Mauro Refosco.

  59. Sebastian Candia

    I think it's mean to the fact that the artichoke heart is the best tasty part of the artichoke, or i dont really know

    Bob Charles

    interesting. That makes sense!

    Matt LaForce

    The artichoke heart is the best part :)

  60. Gil

    Effects, printing, default
    I listen to your body bursts
    - Stop - lying, lying
    distort, extend
    Out of control
    Out of control

  61. Brian Helmholz

    Where's Flea's mention in any of the descriptions??? One of the greatest bass players ever and not even a nod towards him??

    Gent Bar

    Brian Helmholz thnks

    Liam Hardy

    This isn't the band 'Atoms for Peace', ya numpty. Flea didn't have anything to do with this. It's a song from Thom's solo album 'The Eraser'.

  62. Michael T.

    lol......nice

  63. nowheretob3found

    O_o LOL that never crossed my mind it changes a bit my mental picture...for worse, damn you! lol

  64. Diego Peña

    Feel you bro! same thing but in my way to class in the morning,

  65. ThePortableSix

    Ever seen an artichoke heart? Look it up. And Thom wants to eat it... Pretty sexual, innit?

    Paula Sofía Contreras

    ThePortableSix heh. I interpreted it as when you want so badly that someone opens up and shares their soul with you. Innocent me, I guess.

  66. GhostsOfPlanets

    I'd love to know you're definition of 'fully appreciating this song', because I can't imagine being more affinitive with it than I already am. I didn't need drugs to make me realise how much I value this song, It's a drug in itself.

  67. inside452

    Waiting anyway now for the atoms for peace album. great band name btw

  68. tejaspics

    RIP Thom.

  69. Sarahparra more

    i love his lyrics and the fluidity of his voice-

  70. Stubbinator99

    He. Isn't. Dead. Stop spreading the rumor.

  71. francaisemode

    r u serious this is a disasterpiece of thom..? i hate this vid.

  72. TeyaWan

    wow stoned

  73. Roberto Ruiz

    3:33 I remember once I was drunk and saw this video, that part...just made me feel peace in every atom in my body, don't know why

  74. Kamal Mansim

    Gent Bar

    Daniel Folnovic there was 1-2 copies in my town when it came out. and a million other crap at the store.

    André Lapa

    do you still have it?

  79. Gonzalo Arias

    32 freaking crappy music lovers

  80. 詹岳欣

    聽完充滿沉重與不安

  81. Geovany Flores

    @HELLsAROUNDtheCORNER Why is it so disturbing for you?

  82. Victor K.

    take me in your aaaaaaaaaaaarms

  83. MaxGiu

    @Thargor21 i used to do that, but with my cellphone and going back home from college (:

  84. dsf429

    How can Thomas Yorke be so talented? The man is a once in a generation kind of musician.

  85. wild child

    @burningburney99 i agree.

  86. wild child

    this man can see the future. the nuclear proliferation movement , to look back in time and write one more time about nuclear threat, before it begins, the black hole of nuclear power. The foolishness of man. long live Tom Yorke.

  87. wild child

    @jesuisericham , im trying to explain my friend/brother the same thing, i agree, but it's a hard desition , join the anti- nuclear movement of some sort.

  88. Farlan H.B

    This is Beautiful! ♥! it Fits So well with the vid!

  89. thingstodo645

    @Thargor21

    haha. yes.

  90. Butterfliesandzebras

    @jesuisericham So true dude, I think you encapsulated my interpretation of this song with the demon slaying, the potency of the lyrics always strike me when I listen to it, they're very simple but carry so much weight.

  91. Madds

    This is an AMAZING MUSIC VIDEO!! Love it!!! keep making great stuff!!

  92. swantonist

    those opening notes make me wanna sob

  93. Asyraful Umam

    inget Bjork

  94. Eric Hamilton

    After having a long discussion with my brother I realized this is my favorite Thom Yorke tune. It's like, if I were to compare this song to drugs this song would be like the one part of your mushroom trip where everything is so clear and calm and quiet, not too noisy not too colorful there are no questions and no answers, you're just like, "I'm here, and that's all" and then you smile. It's like Thom Yorke slayed a demon deep inside of himself and put it in a very simple song. His true voice


  95. Hell IsAroundTheCorner

    So much sweetness and sensitivity in one man...
    That's disturbing.

  96. swantonist

    this song wants to make me sob every time those opening tones come in, so beautiful in some way i cant even define

  97. ThomasScottCarson

    can i get some feedback on my remix of this song i made? it is here
    /watch?v=9mk_9nS3-6A
    great song, my 2nd favorite off the album
