Bones (3:09)

Cover of The Bends

From The Bends and 71 other releases

Yet another song (like “My Iron Lung”) that reflects Thom’s obsession with poor health, this is perhaps a product of the physical tribulations of touring. The song looks at Thom’s fear of growing old and becoming physically incapacitated. Thom: “We recorded this about four times before we got it right. The original had the ending going on for about a minute and a half, which was something Jonny got from The Fall.”

I don't want to be crippled and cracked
Shoulders, wrists, knees and back
Ground to dust and ash
Crawling on all fours
