Radiohead has a way of evoking pure emotion through just their melodies. Yorke and company do that with creepy ease with their tune “Pyramid Song.” It tells a spiritual story of redemption, freedom, protection, and death. “Pyramid Song” alludes to the Nile River, the Hades river, and the Exodus story all in a few complex lyrics:

“I jumped in the river and what did I see?/Black-eyed angels swam with me/A moon full of stars and astral cars/All the things I used to see/All my lovers were there with me/All my past and futures/And we all went to heaven in a little row boat/There was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt”
