Where I End And You Begin

Album: Hail To The Thief (2003)
  • This reflection on anxieties personal and political was dedicated to Jeanne Loriod, an early performer on the ondes Martenot, who died shortly before the album came out. Jonny Greenwood played the Theremin-like instrument on "Pyramid Song" and several Hail to the Thief songs.
  • This song was subtitled "The Sky Is Falling In" and it referenced Chicken Licken. The children's nursery story, in which a flock of deluded poultry are lured into a fox's den, was a favorite of Yorke when he was a boy.
