interesting thing I didn't know.

Don't get any big ideas
they're not gonna happen
You paint yourself white
and feel up with noise
but there'll be something missing

Now that you've found it, it's gone
Now that you feel it, you don't
You've gone off the rails

So don't get any big ideas
they're not going to happen
You'll go to hell for what your dirty mind is thinking

Sometimes Thom adds this verse when performing:

She stands stark naked and she beckons you to bed
don't go, you'll only want to come back again

Released: October 10, 2007 digitally, December 3, 2007 CD & Vinyl
Found on: In Rainbows
This song was originally introduced by the band as an untitled piece, but on Web sites it is often referred to as "Big Ideas (Don't Get Any)." Thom first heard this title from Matt Pinfield in a MTV interview for 120 Minutes. The title "Nude" is the title that appears on the band's set lists, though the song has never been referred to elsewhere by this name. The piece features both Thom and Jonny on keyboards, and it is as gorgeous and mysterious as both "Motion Picture Soundtrack" and "True Love Waits" as far as the unreleased material is concerned. Influenced by the notion that we live in a man's world, a place where men can get whatever they desire, the song also explores the guilt that men feel when they commit certain acts, like cheating on their partners.

In other news, I'm incredibly proud of brother Jake!
