"Street Spirit (Radiohead Cover)" as written by and Thomas Edward/o'brien Yorke....
Rows of houses all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things in all positions
All these things will one day take control
And fade out again and fade out

This machine 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 its beady eyes
All these things into fruition
All these things we'll one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out again

    General CommentI generally hate covers - and worse, covers of songs that were brilliant (why even bother?? Example in point is George Michael covering "Somebody To Love" or "Killer"). This is a lovely exception. And one thing I would like to point out, around 59s mark they add a bit of guitar riff which is borrowed from Radiohead's "Just". Nice!
