How to Disappear Completely (5:54)

Cover of Kid A

From Kid A and 81 other releases

“That song is about the whole period of time that OK Computer was happening. We did the Glastonbury Festival and this thing in Ireland. Something snapped in me. I just said, ‘That’s it. I can’t take it anymore.’ And more than a year later, we were still on the road. I hadn’t had time to address things. The lyrics came from something Michael Stipe said to me. I rang him and said, ‘I cannot cope with this.’ And he said, ‘Pull the shutters down and keep saying, ‘I’m not here, this is not happening. ’” — Thom Yorke

    предыстория у песни довольно интересная. Том написал ее после провального концерта

    В моменты, когда особенно хреново, включаешь именно эту песню. Играет вступление, и вот голос Тома поёт: "That there..", и у тебя просто прорывает: слёзы льют ручьём.Ты слушаешь этот спокойный, чарующий голос, словно никто в целом свете не сможет тебя понять, как он.Словно ты исповедуешься. Просто волшебное воздействие оказывает.Величайшая песня!

    found this at the comment section on youtube: "I know this song. It plays when you love someone enough to let them completely inside… and they find the abyss. It looks just like their own. They pull away. They board up their windows, choose a new name. You delete their contact information, their photos, their emails. You never speak to them again. You still miss them. More, each day. They stay hidden. You can’t tell them not to worry. You can’t help them forget their fear, to move on, without you. Unless you disappear. Completely."
