Riff: Atoms for Peace – “Reverse Running”

Feb 25, 2013

I’m reverse running/I’m reverse running/Falling in the horses feet/All the feelings that you shouldn’t see

from Reverse Running lyrics by Atoms for Peace

Who hasn’t felt like the worlds been running backwards? Since the millennium it’s been one nostalgic trip after another, and Yorke makes it a point to capture the essence of that paradox. Once again the instrumentation does a good job, but the overdose of the mantra loses its luster very fast.
