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
And fade out again and fade out

This machine will will not communicate these thoughts
And the strain I am under
Be a world child form a circle before we all go under
And fade out again and fade out again

Cracked eggs dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death can see it's beady eyes
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out again

Immerse yourself in love
Immerse yourself in love.

    I feel like this is Radiohead's only song without a silver lining. Its like their tunnel without a light at the end. Each notes rocks me and makes me feel more solemn then ever. Thom Yorke calls out in a final breath for love in order to possibly avoid this sickness and depression that the world maintains.
