Radiohead - Bishop's Robes

Are you terrified of your headmaster? Didn't you like your teachers? Thom yorke didn't, and he made a song about it:


According to Wikipedia: "The song "Bishop's Robes" refers to Yorke's experience of cruelty at school. Though he claims that he suffered no physical punishment as a schoolboy, violence was felt in ghastly mind-games, and in the teacher's cruelty: hence the line "bastard headmaster".

Radiohead - A troubled Thom Yorke thinking about his schooldays.


Here are the lyrics to the song:

Dressed in bishop's robes
Terrifies me still
In bishop's robes
Bastard headmaster

I'm not going back
I'm not going back
I'm not going back

Children taught to kill
To tear themselves to bits
On playing fields
Dressed in bishop's robes

I'm not going back
I'm not going back
I'm not going back
