    My InterpretationI listened to this while upside down with my head in a bucket of lime jelly that hadn't quite set yet, and I was holding a ferret in my left hand, whilst stroking it with my right, and I'm convinced I heard Thom say, "You're a fucking idiot". Anyone else hear anything similar?

    Hope this posts correctly.
    I swear the bass is saying "you'll never find me" but it's probably just gnomes lol. There's some other easter eggs innit.

    General CommentThis is like a mix of a dance track with naturistic ambience mixed with an element of Radiohead's typical creepiness. It's probably closest to something like Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors (which is also spectacular) in structure. Other than that I have NO idea what to make of it

    General CommentA feral organism is one that has escaped from domestication and returned, partly or wholly, to a wild state

    This song reminds me of Black Swan the scene where Nina (Natalie Portman) went to the the night club with Lily, started dancing and getting paranoid and then you see her creepy hallucinations in the background.

    General CommentI listened to this backwards in hope of it becoming more clear...no luck, except there may be a point that says "nothing...in the world," although I'm not sure!

    General CommentThis is not an instrumental, at least at second 0:32 you can listen Thom Yorke saying "Feral", and while the song goes on, you can listen to him saying something else, a word similar to 'just', I haven't find out whst he says, but I'm pretty sure that in the song there is at least one complete sentence, or a message made of "hard to undecode" lyrics.
