  • Stay in the shadows
    Cheer at the gallows
    This is a round up

    This is a low flying panic attack
    Sing a song on the jukebox that goes

    Burn the witch
    Burn the witch
    We know where you live

    Red crosses on wooden doors
    And if you float you burn
    Loose talk around tables
    Abandon all reason
    Avoid all eye contact
    Do not react
    Shoot the messengers

    This is a low flying panic attack
    Sing the song of sixpence that goes

    Burn the witch
    Burn the witch
    We know where you live
    We know where you live Writer/s: Colin Greenwood, Edward O'Brien, Jonny Greenwood, Philip Selway, Thom Yorke
