Default Radiohead lyric debate: Idioteque

"Here Im allowed, everything all of the time"

vs

"Here Im alive, everything all of the time"



Case for allowed:

- Makes more sense lyrically
- Greenplastic.com says its allowed (they seem to be a very good site)
- Jgorham swears its allowed

Case for alive:

- Many radiohead lyric sites say its alive
- One concert of theirs I have on my PC makes it sound A LOT like alive


Personally, Ive always thought it was allowed, but I want to get other opinions.

It's alive. I've seen it live and unless he changes it up, it's "alive".

Having never researched it, I have always assumed it was alive. Allowed definitely makes more sense though. I shall listen and report back.

On the Kid A studio version and I Might Be Wrong version it's "allowed" and I see no reason to think it's anything else.

I never thought I'd see the day where you start a Radiohead thread.

Well, it certainly *could* be allowed, which is a new perspective to me. But I still think it's alive. When it's sung in the latter portions of the song, it's a very drawn out long 'I' sound. This doesn't necessarily mean anything with Yorke singing, but it's enough for me to stick with my original thought without evidence to the contrary.

Also, that site has plenty of incorrect or incomplete lyrics, at least to my ears.

Let's put this to rest.

1. Download the SNL version.

2. At 2:16 watch Ed O'Brian (in the foreground, on backup vocals)

It is clearly "alive".

There are multiple lyrics sites so I did the following two searches.

Here I'm Allowed

and

Here I'm Alive.

Nice. Based on those results, this is obviously a hotly debated topic.

I was referring to the greenplastic.com site in the OP.
