   / Thom Yorke       /  This song is about David Kelly, a former weapon
  / Harrowdown Hill  /  inspector in Iraq at the time Saddam Hussein was still
 / The Eraser       /  in charge and who truly knew about the situation
/__________________/  concerning weapons of mass destruction – the government's
                     official justification for invading Iraq. His evidence
questioned the entire situation as it proved that there of course wasn't any
threat at all. This evidence pulled him through a massive storm of attention
from the medias and put him under an unbearable pressure from his own government
as he now had to stand uagainst his own country all by himself. This unbearable
pressure forced him to take the ultimate consequence. (Some conspiracies say
that he was murdered, but no matter what the government truly knew that this
might be the result of the weight on his shoulders!) The 17th of July Kelly's
body was found in the woods of Harrowdown Hill. He had overdosed himself with
medicine and cut his left wrist with a knife had owned since his youth.

  Don't walk the plank like I did
           Bm
  You will be dispensed with
       G                  G
  When you've become inconvenient
        Bm
  Up on harrowdown hill
                  Bm
  There where you used to go to school
         G
  That's where I am
                   G
  That's where I'm lying down


        Bm
  Did I fall or was I pushed?
        Bm
  Did I fall or was I pushed?
      G
  And where's the blood?
      G
  And where's the blood?


             A
  I'm coming home, I'm coming home
                 A
  To make it all right, so dry your eyes


               G
  We think the same things at the same time
                G
  We just can't do anything about it
A              A
  We think the same things at the same time
                G
  We just can't do anything about it


G              A
  So don't ask me, ask the ministry
            A
  Don't ask me, ask the ministry


               G
  We think the same things at the same time
               G                       Em
  There are so many of us so you can't count
               Em
  We think the same things at the same time
                G
  There are too many of us so you can't count


          Bm
  Can you see me when I'm running?
          Bm
  Can you see me when I'm running?
   G
  Away from them
   G
  Away from them


          Bm
  I can't take their pressure
         Bm
  No one cares if you live or die
            G
  They just want me gone
       G
  They want me gone


             A
  I'm coming home, I'm coming home
                 A
  To make it all right, so dry your eyes
               G
  We think the same things at the same time
                G
  We just can't do anything about it


Em             Em

  There are too many of us so you can't count


             Bm
  Then I was led into a backroom at Harrowdown Hill
             Bm
  Then I was led into the back at Harrowdown Hill
           G
  It was a slippery, slippery, slippery slope
           A
  It was a slippery, slippery, slippery slope
            Em
  I feel me slipping in and out of consciousness
            Em
  I feel me slipping in and out of consciousness
               Bm
  I feel me...
