Thom Yorke - Cymbal Rush Lyrics




Try to save it but it doesn't come off the rock
Try to build a wall that is high enough

It's all boiling over a
All boiling over

Try to save your house
Try to save your songs
Try to run
But it follows you up a hill

It's all boiling over
All boiling over
Your little voice
Your little voice

No more conversation
No more conversation
You should took me out when you had the chance
You should took me out when you had the chance
All the rooms were numbered
And the losers turned away
Don't turn away
Don't turn away

  43. fany

    Try to save it but it doesn't come off the rug
    Try to build a wall that is high enough
    It's all boiling over
    It's all boiling over
    Try to save your house
    Try to save your songs
    Try to run but it follows you up a hill
    It's all boiling over
    It's all boiling over
    Your loved ones
    Your loved ones
    A normal conversation
    A normal conversation
    (you should have took me out when you had the chance)
    (you should have took me out when you had the chance)
    All the rooms renumbered
    And losers turned away
    (you should have took me out when you had the chance)
    Don't turn away
    (you should have took me out when you had the chance)
    Don't turn away

  44. Ben Boardman

    what keyboard is thom using?

    Azwel

    fender rhodes

  45. lapinafly

    a massage that comes from the ears to the brain.....I like it so much...

  46. Jamie Friers

    I really hope people realize what a gift we have with this guy.

  47. lobofobia

    Radiohead....Beatles of the future

    Scova

    lobofobia they’re far beyond anything the Beatles ever were. The Beatles (while still being good) were a famous pop phenomenon. These guys are on a whole other frequency when it comes to music. Literally nothing can be compared

    lobofobia

    a famous pop phenomenon? Sgt Pepper...Revolver....Abbey Road...White Album...(Tomorrow never knows, A day in the life, Hapiness is a warm gun, Blue jay way, Its all too much, Fixing a hole...etc etc...) OK!!!

    Scova

    lobofobia for all intensive purposes, yes The Beatles are a pop band. I used to be a huge Beatles fan but then grew bored of there sound. To compare Radiohead to The Beatles is honestly kind of a disgrace in my opinion. Radiohead has created there own sound that cannot ever be recreated by anyone ever. The Beatles didn’t do anything like that. Radiohead makes soundscape beautiful music. Nothing The Beatles have ever done can be compared to a Radiohead song past The Bends. From Ok Computer till now, Radiohead has truly been on another frequency when it comes to music.

    lobofobia

    In an interview they asked Johhny what was better than Radiohead. The guitarist replied: anything the Beatles have recorded is better than Radiohead. I guess he knows more than us.

    Scova

    lobofobia why would they say they’re the best? They have said in multiple occasions that they think there music is bad. No great artist thinks what they’re doing is the best because they’re always striving to do far better. Like I said, The Beatles were mainstream pop back then. Radiohead has never been mainstream, and they’re music doesn’t even sound relatively similar to anything the Beatles have ever put out. Just cuz Johnny says he thinks the Beatles are better, doesn’t mean he said were just a worse/modern day version of the Beatles. The Rolling Stones were great, but Linkin Park is pretty great too. I guess that means Linkin Park is just the modern day Rolling Stones right? Oh wait............

  48. L A

    I can't stop listening to The Eraser, I haven't put it down since it came out.

    Jonah Louque

    L A it’s an amazing and innovative album!

    Milo Baird

    Have you put it down yet?

    L A

    @Milo Baird Still coming back to it...

  49. sorts ,.

    Omg this is so good

  50. Jp Lagier

  51. 7731 tkol

    이새끼 중간에 틀려가지고 지도 처웃네 ㅋㅋㅋ 2:02초부분부터 존나 틀리고 2:16 쯤에 처웃음

  52. Johnny Zur

    "That was good."

  53. alejandro breceda

    NIGEL IS DA BITCH

  54. Bruno Mello (Decepticon)

    I love this song. i don't know how, but over the days, this song is saving my life. i am so grateful for this

  55. Sam Wray

    Does anyone know what drum machine that is?

    Angelo Boltini

    Looks like a 909

  56. 緒方許さんぞ

    2:17 madness...

  57. lewisportsmouth

    Anyone know what Synth that is the Johnny plays?

    Adrian Hardt

    I would love to know as well :)

    uisin ESK

    It's called Ondes martenot

  58. Court Laszlo

    I love the tempo of this song

  59. monalysy

    amo adoro!

  60. Will

    Dare I say this is BETTER than the album version?

    Thomas Engel

    I completely agree, in comparison with “Like Spinning Plates” the live version is much better and more clear. I love the electronic touch but the album version is a bit too electronic.

    Martin Tam

    You don't need to dare. It objectively is.

    Lucas D

    Will Yeah definitely way better

    radiohead93

    Without a doubt

    TwistyMcNuts

    You certainly can. And Jonny on the French Connection (Ondes Martenot replica) is just sublime. I've watched this video so many times and it still gives me chills.

  61. Ahmed Hamzawy

    Truly underrated song.

  62. Toch Beltrán

    Ondes martenot

  63. Mariisa C R

    10 yearssss

  64. Summa Dayze

    OMG! that shift of beat and the sudden soothing voice of Thom Yorke at 2:54 make me wanna die!

  65. gerardo noriega

    imposible mezclar futboles con músicos . Por favor

  66. Roshan Rai

    This song should be listened by every human beings in the world.
    Including aliens, they would take thom as God.

  67. Bandplyr B

    Wow. Just wow.

  68. Burak Sırma

    thom's songs are so depressing and perfect at the same time that it makes me go suicidal thoughts.

  69. Shammo Hamid

    Jonny's playing the Ondes Martenot right?

    Rush Rush

    Shammo Hamid ye

  70. jonathan gray

    apart from being an amazing song...what i love is the fact even though its a solo thom song, radiohead band mates still play it with him. true friends...true music...truly fucking awesome

  71. Dan Kun

    I think this is better than the original version.

  72. Batool

    what sort of magic is this?

  73. Giorgi Merabishvili

    Genius!

  74. Jay

    thom is such a fool. He does the greatest live performance of one of the best songs ever written and all he says at the end of it is a mundane "that was good". Such a gross understatement.

    Smarty Jonez

    It’s not one of the best signs every written. Take it easy

    liquid metal

    @Smarty Jonez then what is?

  75. Your Favourite Worst Nightmare

    ten years, omg

  76. John O'Brien

    Try to save it but it doesn't come off the rock
    Try to build a wall that is high enough

    It's all boiling over a
    All boiling over

    Try to save your house
    Try to save your songs
    Try to run
    But it follows you up a hill

    It's all boiling over
    All boiling over
    Your little voice
    Your little voice

    No more conversation
    No more conversation
    You should took me out when you had the chance
    You should took me out when you had the chance
    All the rooms were numbered
    And the losers turned away
    Don't turn away
    Don't turn away

  77. chickencomrade

    I love how Nigel just causally walks in and lays down some phat beats

    L A

    Great timing Nigel, it was slick...

  78. Maria Florencia

    son unos genios los amo <3

  79. Andy Sorbet

    I woke up in the middle of sleep simultaneously with my girlfriend to this one night. we fuckin broke up. life is so stupid sometimes.

  82. Jacob Castillo

    <3 always

  83. Sometimes good Sometimes shit

    This version is so good I want to die .

    Zachary Smith

    It's kind of true. Reading your comment while listening made me kind of cry... (eek face)

    C. Richardson

    Lol same here

    This-nibba-is-dead

    Larks' Tongues In Aspic me too, dude. Me too.

  84. SUAR

    la armonia de este tema me hace acordar a There There

  85. Luis Marcio Torales Oviedo

    Anyone picks up a melody similar to There There towards the end of the song?

    Patrick Remi

    lil bit, lil bit

    LentilsOverkill

    Same chords, actually.

  86. Ramone Cricket

    I envision Thom Yorke dying of a heart attack one day, on stage, having just completed one of the greatest live performances in music history. Gives everything, this man.

  87. Nebojsha Antonijevik

    He's a God, man!

    Victor Gomez

    Nebojsha Antonijevik Which one?

    Nebojsha Antonijevik

    ha ha, Tom of course!

  88. vicky emery

    May be 10 years old but wow this is still fantastic and even better live

  89. Micah Buzan

    I love how Jonny's hair is always the most prominent feature of his face when he performs.

    Burak Sırma

    Micah Buzan you again, mate

    feroui hamza

    i knew i'll find your comment here

  90. TheKnowlesy56

    johnny Greenwood!!!!!!

  91. Nader Ibrahim

    Big up man like Johnny on the beat!

  92. Fun Guy

    Want to know how good Radiohead are? ... Even when it went "wrong" at the start, it still sounded about 1,000 times better than any other band!

    Jonah Louque

    Fun Guy agreed, also how is Creep still their most popular song. Even if we’re talking Pablo Honey, Blowout is much better. But yeah, Radiohead is the best.

  93. Fun Guy

    4:59 *Thom Yorke:* _"That's good."_
    ... *Me:* _"Yes Thom, that certainly was!"_

  94. Brenda Luna

    something I love about Thom is how ordinary he seems to be, then all of the sudden the music starts and he blooms like a flower.

    Bandplyr B

    Brenda Luna like a lotus flower

    chappytk

    So I was learning this song today and saw your comment. I think it goes even deeper than what you're saying. Even a simple sounding song like this isn't simple. The words don't match up with the piano hits, it's syncopated. Which means it takes twisting your brain a little bit to figure it out. Not only is it beautiful, but it's kind of hard to play and sing this at the same time, and I didn't even notice until I tried. He's a genius.

    Rob vp

    Exactly.. I play the Jonny parts in my radio cover band and it is amazing how `simple' the songs sound but how well they are composed. I always played classical music but playing Radiohead is so much fun.. for me it is classical music but in a modern jacket.

  95. boonehouston

    there was a morning where I woke up to this, simultaneously with my ex, playing on fuel tv. it was beautiful.
