The Present Tense Lyrics

by Radiohead

This dance, this dance
It's like a weapon, like a weapon
Of self defense, self defense
Against the present, against the present
The present tense

I won't get heavy, don't get heavy
keep it light, and keep it moving
I am doing, no harm

As my world, comes crashing down
I am dancing, freaking out
Deaf, dumb, and blind

In you I'm lost (x2)

I won't turn around, while the penny drops
I won't stop now, I won't slack off
Or all this love will be in vain, o-ooh
Stop from falling down a mine
that's' nobody business but mine
Or all this love will be in vain
O-oooh

In you I'm lost (x2)
