• Optimistic

    Music & lyrics by Radiohead and spoof by Ey@el

    Original en français

    Flies are buzzing around my head,
    Vultures circling the dead,
    Picking up every last crumb.
    The big fish eat the little ones,
    The big fish eat the little ones.
    Not my problem give me some!

    You can try the best you can,
    If you try the best you can,
    The best you can is good enough.

    This one's optimistic.
    This one went to market.
    This one just came out of the swamp.
    This one dropped a payload,
    Fodder for the animals
    Living on an animal farm.

    If you try the best you can,
    If you try the best you can,
    The best you can is good enough.

    'd really like to help you man,
    I'd really like to help you man,
    Nervous messed up marionette
    Floating around on a prison ship.

    If you try the best you can,
    If you try the best you can,
    The best you can is good enough.

    If you try the best you can,
    If you try the best you can,
    Dinosaurs roaming the earth...

    Pessimistic (Ey@el Mix)

    Below is the translation of my "Optimistic" spoof (the Ey@el mix from the attic) 100% tongue in cheek. I realised afterwards it was aimed at people I know who really piss me off. Definitely not a poke at Thom Yorke.

    I got neon spider toys in the attic,
    Hanging on the tenuous thread of my thought,
    Flashing through every nook and cranny.
    Butterflies follow up caterpillars,
    Butterflies follow up caterpillars.
    No problem, gimme some wings!

    You wanna get better,
    You wanna get better,
    So let it go.

    This one's pessimistic.
    This one's pulling us on.
    This one's always spaced out.
    This one's dropped his new-age,
    Garbage for the suckers
    Dwelling in the zoo,

    If you wanna get better,
    If you wanna get better,
    Letting go is good enough.

    I'd really like to help you man,
    I'd really like to help you man,
    Cool jack on the rampage
    Yearning to ascend.

    If you wanna get better,
    If you wanna get better,
    Letting go is good enough.

    If you wanna get better,
    If you wanna get better,
    You gotta look the part...
