    Music & lyrics by Radiohead

    Why is it that Radiohead's most beautiful songs always have to be the most depressing ones lyricwise? Is that cognitive dissonance? Or just because pain and misery are what makes the beauty of art? So many questions I leave it to you to find your own answers. As a bonus on this video — in addition to this wonderful track from the legendary OK Computer album which propelled the band to the pinnacle of glory — "Street Spirit" which happens to be one of the very first posts published on this blog and that also the main source of inspiration for its original design (see Related articles). Two timeless songs of soulful beauty to enjoy without reserve.

    Transport, motorways and tramlines,
    Starting and then stopping,
    Taking off and landing,
    The emptiest of feelings.

    Disappointed people
    Clinging on to bottles,
    And when it comes it's so...
    So disappointing.

    Let down and hanging around,
    Crushed like a bug in the ground,
    Let down and hanging around...

    Shell smashed, juices flowing,
    Wings twitch, legs are going.
    Don't get sentimental,
    It always ends up drivel.

    One day I'm going to grow wings,
    A chemical reaction,
    Hysterical and useless,
    Hysterical and ...

    Let down and hanging around,
    Crushed like a bug in the ground,
    Let down and hanging around...

    Let down again...
    Let down again...
    Let down again...

    You know...
    You know where you are with...
    You know where you are with...

    Floor collapsing,
    Floating, bouncing back,

    And one day I am going to grow wings,
    A chemical reaction,
    Hysterical and useless...
    Hysterical and...

    Let down and hanging around,
    Crushed like a bug in the ground...
    Let down and hanging around.
