    most of you will never have heard of the band 'radiohead' but they are my favorite band.... some of the lyrics in their songs make me cry as they describe how i feel about my fibro... i am sure that to you they may sound cryptic, and they are somewhat symbolic... but i wanted to share some of them with you....

    SCATTERBRAIN:
    I'm walking out in a force ten gale
    Birds thrown around, bullets for hail
    The roof is pulling off by its fingernails
    Your voice is rappin' on my windowsill
    Yesterday's headlines blown by the wind
    Yesterday's people end up scatterbrain
    Any fool can easy pick a hole (I only wish i could fall in)
    A moving target in a firing range
    Somewhere I'm not
    Scatterbrain
    Somewhere I'm not
    Scatterbrain
    Lightning fuse, powercut
    Scatterbrain


    LIKE SPINNING PLATES:
    While you make pretty speeches
    I'm being cut to shreds
    You feed me to the lions
    A delicate balance

    And this just feels like spinning plates
    I'm living in cloud cuckoo land
    And this just feels like spinning plates
    my body's floating down the muddy river

    LET DOWN:
    Transport
    Motorways and tram lines
    Starting and then stopping
    Taking off and landing
    The emptiest of feelings
    Disappointed people
    Clinging onto bottles
    And when it comes its so so disappointing

    Let down and hanging around
    Crushed like a bug in the ground
    Let down and hanging around

    Shell smashed
    Juices flowing
    Wings twitch legs are going
    Don't get sentimental
    It always ends up drivel
    One day I'm going to grow wings
    A chemical reaction
    Hysterical and useless
    Hysterical and

    Let down and hanging around
    Crushed like a bug in the ground
    Let down and hanging around

    You know where you are with
    You know where you are with
    Floor collapses
    Floating
    Bouncing back and one day I am gonna grow wings
    A chemical reaction
    Hysterical and useless
    Hysterical and

    Let down and hanging around
    Crushed like a bug in the ground
    Let down and hanging around

    I like their song, Creep, but I can't download it from iTunes because it isn't on there. :(

    I liked the lyrics you put on the board.
