Lyrics

Rows of houses, all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole

My favorite band
Love me some Radiohead
@April: Huh?
If that is how he feels, I don't want that song in my station. I don't think it is meant for me. Why IT chose them is THEIR problem, but I don't plan on looking evil in the eye and they should question why they were the ones to play the song. I am down with sadness, but not to that degree. Nope. Not keeping it. Save yourselves. Be smart. He even basically says so.

Love Radiohead. I've been listening to the off and on for YEARS. Great songs for sure.
It is hard not to love this song

One of my favorites from these guys! Haunting and beautiful.
Took 4 guys to write that...... Kinda bullshit. I'm a fan of the band.... Never heard this. Must say, not a fan of the writing..... . . . ESP, from 4 grown men. Just sayin'....
this song is so sad. then again, I'm always sad so all songs sound like it
This reminds me of a System of a Down Song o:
Gorgeous :-)
Its amazing how great radiohead is. Its also amazing this song is 15 plus years old
Such a great song.
Beautiful song....and it reminds me a bit of Kansas's "Dust in the Wind"

i love this song and love how paul oakenfold got sued over remixing it live in ibiza... but damnit what a good remix!

I've never read Yorke's explanation of the song until now, and boy, does it change the meaning. I'm struggling to understand his explanation of complete hopelessness in the lyrics though. To me, the last line was always the "light at the end of the tunnel," the glimmer of hope in the song, the way to cope with life's ultimate injustices.

Regardless, an utterly incredible and haunting song, among Radiohead's finest (even if Yorke claims to have not written it).

This is such an eerie, yet catchy song - I personally prefer Radiohead's more technoish work (à la Kid A, OK Computer, In Rainbows) as opposed to the more traditional rock ballads of Pablo Honey and The Bends. Hail to the Thief sort of reconciles the two sounds.
this is like another version of comfortably numb/somethi n g else I don't place in my memory, and 7th grade as I had a crush on the boy across the street from me who blessed me with The Bends and Pablo Honey... The rest is a sweet symphony of twisted life, pain, s**t, and all the things that made me me. Thanx Joey:)

What can you say? Radiohead's fans include Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, etc. Plus, many music critics rated them tops of the 1st decade of this millineum. Don't burn out and break up, Radiohead!! I think you've yet to peak.

wow - excellent tune

*shudders*.. . i v got the chills...ooo o o o o o o o o o h wow...brilli a n t song...amazi n g vocals...wow

Another awesome Radiohead song. I like Exit Music more though.
<3
Ryan, just looked it up and I have to admit that Yorke does say some haunting things about that song. Most definitely takes on some weight after reading that.

Great song. Maybe the best radiohead ever made. Ps I'm learning it on guitar.
Yeah man this song gives me the willies and chills when I listen to it, god damn it's creepy.
Listen to this song, and then listen to it again after hearing Thom Yorke's response to the question of its meaning (to find it, search for a Thom Yorke quote about Street Spirit concerning the devil)

It becomes a much different song once you know how it was written. Haunting, full of emotion, and incredible.
