And two and two always makes a five

[Repeat this Outro Section Twice]

I try to sing along but I get it all wrong
Cos I'm not, Cos I'm not

I swat em like flies, but like flies that bitch keep
Coming right back, But I'm not

Oh hail to the thief, Oh hail to the thief
But I'm not, But I'm not
But I'm not, But I'm not

Don't question my authority or put me in the box
Cos I'm not, Cos I'm not

Oh go up to the king, and the sky is falling in
But it's not, But it's not, But it's not
Maybe not, Maybe not


NB: I haven't included the high-pitched solo at the end but its basically just some fast strumming
and bending of notes on the top two strings right at the top of the fretboard.

About the artist behind 2 2 5 Tab:

Radiohead are an English alternative rock band from Oxfordshire. The band is composed of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, rhythm guitar, piano, electronics), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, other instruments), Ed O'Brien (guitar, backing vocals), Colin Greenwood (bass guitar, synthesisers) and Phil Selway (drums, percussion). Radiohead have released seven albums and have sold over 23 million records throughout their career.[1]

Radiohead released their first single, "Creep", in 1992, and their debut album, Pablo Honey, in 1993. Though initially unsuccessful, "Creep" was a worldwide hit when reissued a year later. Radiohead's popularity in the United Kingdom increased with the release of their second album, The Bends (1995). The band's textured guitar atmospheres and Yorke's falsetto singing were warmly received by critics and fans. With the release of OK Computer (1997), Radiohead were propelled to greater fame worldwide. Featuring an expansive sound and themes of alienation from the modern world, OK Computer has often been acclaimed as a landmark record of the 1990s.

The release of Kid A (2000) and Amnesiac (2001) saw Radiohead reach their peak popularity, although the albums divided critical opinion. This period marked a change in Radiohead's musical style, with their incorporation of avant-garde electronic music, Krautrock and jazz influences. Hail to the Thief (2003), Radiohead's sixth album, blended styles from throughout the band's career, mixing guitar-driven rock, electronic influences and contemporary lyrics. Radiohead subsequently left their record label, EMI, and released their seventh album, In Rainbows (2007), through their own website as a digital download for which customers selected their own price.
