  • Lyrics
  • This was one of around 75 songs that Radiohead worked up for their King Of Limbs Tour. It was debuted during the encore at the band's First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre, Tinley Park, Illinois gig on June 10, 2012. Bassist Colin Greenwood told Rolling Stone in 2012 he was excited about the new tune, particularly the part "where Thom's voice jacks up into this amazing falsetto. The song just takes off."
  • The song finds Thom Yorke accepting the bitter fact that the good times have come to an end. It is a truth that is hard to swallow.

    This is a foul tasting medicine
    A foul tasting medicine
    To be trapped in your full stop

    A full stop (Commonwealth English) also known as a period (American English) is a punctuation mark placed at the end of a sentence.
