  • Destiny...destiny protect me from the world
    Destiny...hold my hand, protect me from the world
    Here we are, with our running and confusion
    And I don't see no confusion anywhere

    And if the world does turn
    And if London burns
    I'll be standing on the beach with my guitar
    I want to be in a band
    When I get to heaven
    Anyone can play guitar and they won't
    Be a nothing anymore

    Grow my hair...grow my hair I am Jim Morrison
    Grow my hair...I want to be want to be want to be Jim Morrison

    Here we are, with our running and confusion
    And I don't see no confusion anywhere

    As the world does turn
    And if London burns
    I'll be standing on the beach with my guitar
    I want to be in a band
    When I get to heaven
    Anyone can play guitar and they won't
    Be a nothing anymore Writer/s: COLIN CHARLES GREENWOOD, EDWARD JOHN O'BRIEN, JONATHAN RICHARD GUY GREENWOOD, PHILIP JAMES SELWAY, THOMAS EDWARD YORKE

  • Deethewriter from Saint Petersburg, Russia Federation'Which is why Jim Morrison is given a tough time in the new single and video? - Thom Yorke: "Jim Morrison was a bimbo. He was great looking and stuff and took loads of drugs and girls loved him, but his poetry just f--king sucked. The day they brought out a book of his poetry, it was all over. It's not art, it's pop music."' [NME, February 13, 1993]

  • Deethewriter from Saint Petersburg, Russia FederationThom discusses the band's single 'Anyone Can Play Guitar' (and Melody Maker 'Single Of The Week') - "The song is an attack on people who think that growing their hair long and wearing tight leather trousers constitutes being a rock star - and God, it doesn't. It's such an easy way to market yourself." [NME, February 13, 1993]
