about

Originally conceived as part of a project to pair Radiohead’s murky, divisive and, some would say, best record, Kid A with the silent film Nosferatu. While that project never came to fruition, I did get this song out of it.

lyrics

Who's in a bunker?

Take the money run
Take the money

Here I'm allowed
Everything all of the time
Here I'm allowed
Everything all of the time

This one is for the children
