Radiohead – How To Disappear Completely lyrics

That man, that's not me
I go, where I please
I walk through walls
I float down the liffey
I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here
I'm not here
I know what I've seen
You throw me out then send me back again
In a little while I'll be gone
The moment's already passed
Yeah, it's gone
Yeah, it's gone
Yeah, it's gone
Strobe lights and blown speakers
Fireworks and hurricanes
I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here
I'm not here
I'm not here

    Wow! What a song! Everything about this song is hauntingly beautiful. I understand it was based on a dream Thom had. He was floating down the liffey and all. I think we've all felt like we would like these words to be true at some difficult place in our lives. Its been depicted in books and film before. Thom's dreamed it. Hopefully you made it out of the situation you were in to live to tell about it. Or if somewhat more mundane you aren't too embarrassed or chagrined by the experience. I'm an acimer and have read the acim inspired "The Disappearance of the Universe" by Gary Renard. This song should be acims and that books theme song.
