Now as I go upon my way
So let me go upon my way
Born of a light
Born of a light

The wind rushing round my open heart
An open ravine
In my spirit white
Totally alive
In my spirit light

Through an open doorway
Across a street
To another life
And catching my reflection in a window
Switching on a light
One I didn't know
Totally alive
Totally released

Waking, waking up from shutdown
From a thousand years of sleep
Yeah you, you know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean

Standing on the edge of you
You know what I mean
You know what I mean
You know what I mean
Different types of love
Different types of love
Different types of love
Are possible
Are possible
Are possible
Are possible

Obviously you are not familiar with the work of Mr. Bean...

I think they mean a flying disk - aka - "Frisbee".  You got to have something to do on a desert island.

Totally agreed.  I won't argue with people who don't like them - I get it - but I have really come to appreciate this band.

I know what you mean.

10 by definition-Godlike!

I don't see the names of any of the 5 desert island disks this guy would supposedly take with him...

What a disappointment.
Depressing drivel.

It's not bad, nothing too earth shattering, but doesn't make me lunge for the PSD either
First song of the morning for me on RP. It's unusual to have to hit the PSD button right off the bat...
No, TY, I don't know what you mean. Maybe I know what you don't mean.

Always a Thom Yorke fan...very creative artist..{#Guitarist}
This song catches my attention.  Good stuff.

Hey, see the very first posting for this track?  It shows 1969?   how is that possible? 

and I almost liked the dirge like/hypnotic song...wasn't too long to annoy.  

 
Time travel is part of the deal Radiohead made with the devil.  {#Devil_pimp}

Database glitch. Lots of comments below.

This album is absolutely incredible. I'm glad the luddites don't agree.

 
The word you're looking for is "philistines".
How is it The Numbers is not played on RP?? One of the best tracks on the album! {#Stupid}
I hear TY is composing the music for the reboot of the horror classic Suspiria. 
OK. I guess I'll probably skip that one. 
Definitely starts off like Drake's "Six Leaves Left..." and keeps the vibe going, admirably, in my opinion. A very nice cut from this album.
Bert Jansch? Anyone? Anyone?

Sounds like they are bastardizing a Nick Drake vibe. This is awful. Nick Drake is great.

 
Same thought just from the intro - confirmed by the 'singing'.
And I'm not averse to off-the-wall music...

The video was a digital manipulation by the special effects department at The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on NBC for a joke that the late night host delivered during one of his monologs.  The video, complete with a set up by Leno was found on the program’s web site.

Keep waiting for Coldplay to break out the ghosts. Oh, well...
I remember winding down my car window and Frisbee'ing a Bublé CD (that my missus had inadvertently left in the player) into the wilderness where it belonged.  I would probably do the same with this, I fear.
Any album that people say "you have to listen to it a number of times before it grows on you" is an album that my short life has no time for.

jay-sus! this disk needs to be on a desert island all by itself. 
wtf.

{#High-five} I agree. The Numbers is my favorite track! It has a Pink Floyd vibe.

Dave Matthews wibbling on and then this. It must be my birthday. And I must have done something very, very bad.
Well, as much as I enjoyed the Obama gif, I gotta say I liked this uber-mellow RH tune.

No no no no no. RP takes a big dip when there's a new RH album. Bleah.

Have to agree with you....maybe Bill is waiting to leak it out over time....?  Hopefully..
So uninteresting it almost becomes interesting.  Almost!
Check out the album art compared to Yes - Roundabout... Kool...

I don't think Yorke is whiny but he did attend the Michael Stipe School Of Deliberately Enunciating Lyrics So That They Cannot Be Understood
He graduated with honors and I still need to get the new Radiohead cd
 

not as annoying as most of their dreck....

Lots of gems on this album - several very reflective and mellow like this one.  Also love "Present Tense and The Numbers".
