"Dropped" as written by Thomas Edward Yorke, Mauro Refosco, Nigel Godrich, Michael Peter Balzary and Joey Waronker....
It slipped
Out of my hands
Went deep down
Wandering
Stumbling
I don't wanna start
Don't want to start

When I got your heart
I got your heart
It slipped down
Out of my hands
And flipped out
Went wandering
Stumbling
And I fell apart
I fell apart

    General CommentThis one has a literal meaning of heartbreak and the feelings that come with it. It seems as if Thom has been through it before. As the love slips away Thom knows the process of grievance and what it feels like before, he doesn't "want it to start".

    The whole feel of the album can be linked to TKOL and this sense of wandering that was brought forward with Feral. Feeling lost in the woods stumbling around after loosing love.

    My InterpretationSong is about being gay and not wanting to use your genitals in that way but being coerced into it by an older man.
