  • Lyrics
  • You can force it but it will not come
    You can taste it but it will not form
    You can crush it but it's always here
    You can crush it but it's always near
    Chasing you home

    Saying, everything is broken
    Everyone is broken

    You can force it but it will stay stung
    You can crush it as dry as a bone
    You can walk it home straight from school
    You can kiss, you can break all the rules

    But still, everything is broken
    Everyone is broken
    Everyone is, everyone is broken
    Everyone is, everything is broken

    Why can't you forget?
    Why can't you forget?
    Why can't you forget?Writer/s: COLIN CHARLES GREENWOOD, EDWARD JOHN O'BRIEN, JONATHAN RICHARD GUY GREENWOOD, PHILIP JAMES SELWAY, THOMAS EDWARD YORKE

  • Nick from Bridgeton, Meawesome song, love the drums
  • Keith from Slc, UtTelex is also a commercial name, belonging to an outfit which makes microphones and headsets. It is also the short form of "TeleType Exchange," a precursor to the Internet for commercial text transmission.
  • Gabe from Utica, NyThis is the first Radiohead song I ever heard. I think it's awesome! I like the special effects they use in the beginning of the song. And the lead guitar during verse 2 is just awesome.
  • Max from Montreal, Canadait was supposed to be called planet xerox but they couldn't get the rights to use the commercial name
