"Street Spirit (Fade Out)"-- Radiohead off of "The Bends"

Rows of houses, all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out

This machine will, will not communicate
These thoughts and the strain I am under
Be a world child, form a circle
Before we all go under
And fade out again and fade out again

Cracked eggs, dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death, can see its beady eyes
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole
And fade out again and fade out again

Immerse your soul in love
Immerse your soul in love

(After all these years, this is still one of my favorite songs of all time)

This song always reminds me one of the camps I did when I was a kid. We'd all sleep in the attic of a (fancied up a bit) barn, and one of the guides would come and play us some songs with his guitar before bed, and this song was one of them, every night. And I didn't know the song before, but it became my favorite song that summer in camp!

Wow. This was sung to you at camp? That is both cool and odd, since it's a fairly deep, introspective song. Your guide must have been pretty cool :)

He was very cool. Though I have to admit that I think most of the lyrics were mostly hummed, not sung, and we probably didn't understand the sung parts anyway. LOL.
