A beatiful song. It makes me wonder. Is Thom aware of the occultism that has confused so many of the elite players in the world?
It's no secret that world leaders are corrupt, part of Skull and Bones, freemasonry, Bohemian grove, Bilderbergers, Trilateral comission, CFR asf. And no, that is not some nazi facist idea. The nazis forbid freemasonry but mirrored it in their own version of the same kind of hogwash named "Thule society". Anyway.
Is Thom confused (entlightened as they say) by it to?
Is swimming with these occultists (black eyed angels) a nice thing? Thom is obviously playing along when it comes to introcucing the carbon tax ecofacist system backed by IMF, BP and the like to introduce an orwellian society.. It's a giant hoax, and it's not about saving the environment but rather introducing a facist socialistic model where the top agents in the world will rule and the middle class will be drowning in environmental taxes, people being tracked in every sense of the world..
Or is swimming "nice" as in "no worries, no doubts", perhaps understood as "being brainwashed, afraid, not daring even to question, just playing along and trying to enjoy the crecent (occult) moon with astral cards (the occult defining what you are to become, what you are) even though something isn't right..Indicated by that worriesome sound in the background..
Many elite players are ruining the world. Step by step. They are partaking in destruction. Many are the movies that portrait the future of a society that finally was demolished, drowned under water..Atlantis..Catastrophes..
(fearmongering for the immanent threats of carbon dioxide and global warming and how we must introduce new laws or..something that Thom has been doing..I love your music Thom, but seriously, how is it that BP and IMF are the main players for "carbon tax"??).
But hey..there's nothing to fear nothing to doubt..the sky is beatiful..look at the occult meaning of it all, the beatiful moon, the astral cards.. The elite is heavily into the occult, into false ideas of swimming in some kind of "oneness" with everything, all lovers..its about sex..about feeling nice..harmony..yoga..strange deep experiences..altered mind states..strifing for all that really in itself is good, but when introduced out of order brings total destruction..references to the occult babilonian, egyptian, "boat" that would take the rulers (the entlightened, Gods, to the next life..
So many world leaders have been seduced by this type of "esoteric beaty" (i.e. brainwash designed to kill their sauber thinking by Adam Weishaput and the like who knew the power of "intriguing men's minds with gnostic hogwash", also known as stating the obious, there's a lot of hidden messages in music, pop, movies, culture because masonry and the like have been around for quite some time now) while their life-style is getting more decadent, their decisions are anything but beatiful..
"Nothing to fear, nothing to doubt". Right.
Thom. I'll pray for you. That the occult societies you're dealing with will loose their grip. That you won't need to fear that they will kidnap your children or "do it to you" (as you once formulated it).
Wake up people.
no not bout heroin addiction | Reviewer: josh | 7/8/10
look, where the heck did some reviewer get that this song was about thom's heroin addiction?
thom yorke dosen't even use drugs and stop putting things that don't have to do with the other
this song is about a dream thom yorke had, search pyramid song on wiki
that's it, it's not bout buddisim or heroin addiction, it has nothing to do with it!
Astral Cards | Reviewer: Jimmy | 5/23/10
I strongly believe that the individual creates their own interpretations and that in creating art, there should not be one decisive meaning or moral. That being said, I think that this song is a critique of our belief in the afterlife. Yes, I agree that it is named "pyramid song" as a reference to their belief of the afterlife and the preparations that they took in securing their transition from this life to the next. With the painful vocals, and the staggering piano I think the mood is set as a somber one. An astral projection is an out of body experience associated with the transition into the afterlife, which he makes reference to, as well as heaven. I feel like this entire song creates irony because it sets a sad mood for something that would be very pleasant if true. If there's nothing to fear and nothing to doubt then why does this song bring me down? I think he is describing the afterlife as a dream, because when we grow up we realize that the fairytale is over. This is your one life, so make the best of it.
Siddartha | Reviewer: Rachel | 3/31/10
much of this song was inspired by the novel Siddartha, a book by Herman Hesse containing Buddhist ideas and themes that someone mentioned earlier. Particularly the lines "All my lovers were there with me, All my past and futures", which refer to the end of the novel, where boundaries of time and space essentially disolve, and people are depicted as all one. The book also centres around a river.
hope this helps xx
Such Depth. | Reviewer: Natasha | 2/16/10
I agree with Helen on this one. The "black eyed angels" were his guide. Amnesiac has just beat out Kid A as my favorite Radiohead. Dollars & Cents, Packt Like Sardines, Knives Out are also great tracks! Pyramis Song puts my mind at ease and I love the cords, violin, etc but the instrumentals and lyrics are not for a novice orthe faint hearted.
heroine addiction? | Reviewer: badger | 2/15/10
besides the obvious connection to the ancient egyption period, I think the song has a clear reference to Thom's heroine addiction...'I jumped in the river and what did I see? Black-eyed angels swam with me' and 'And we all went to heaven in a little row boat, There was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt' jumping in the river and the floating sensation is comparable to the high of heroine and the line where he has nothing to fear, again heroine completely disconnects you from reality and all it's worries I put this to my girlfriend when I first met her, she's a recovered addict and she said she could definitely relate to it in that way....music with so many levels....brilliant
My own perspective | Reviewer: Nate | 1/27/10
My interpretation of this song is different of the few at least here I have read. Perhaps it is underlying some of the other interpretations on a more linear level.
To me, the 'Pyramid' reference in the title is a reference to how the ancient Egyptian culture is to us today, a fossil of a civilization. This song to me is an appropriation of that fossil civilization.
We know Radiohead to be anti-war, this to me is the post-apocalyptic vision of our destiny, "Our pasts" being the memories of what once was, "our futures" just the dreaming of what could have been. "Nothing to fear and nothing to doubt" the boldness and remorselessness of our stride into oblivion.
Nothing to fear,nothing to... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/17/10
I think it means changing your ways,entering a new phase of new meaning in life,becoming a different person,more or less.I think this is why there are references to death and being conscious to it as someone stated below,meaning the "death" of an old self,thus the "nothing to fear" line.
a song about a hero | Reviewer: Helen | 12/5/09
the river is a steady stream of circumstances that is governed by a force more powerful than that of the author. His fate is written in the constellations and astral cards & had little control over his outcome. He knowingly jumps into the river realizing the unknown and his lack of power. This denotes an act of faith. He is guided by a black- eyed angel, a guide, or a belief to reassure him from all his fears and doubt.
I believe that heroes that face the unknown or bravely face a life- threatening circumstance (whatever it may be) may have this type of thought process, as they deal with something that is inevitably more powerful than they.
I think of the brave souls who sacrificed their own lives to save the life of another-- or for purposes greater than they. But I think in a sense it relates to us all, because we kill parts of ourselves to survive the strong current we live in.
Something about the vibrations heard during the song seem to emit a subjective spiritual response. I love pianos.
Great Song | Reviewer: JF | 11/27/09
There's a great live version of this on YouTube in HD. I disagree with Phil about predestination. Nothing is predetermined. Free will is given to all. Life is a test and we are free to determine our own outcome. We are free to act and to be acted upon. It's how we choose to exercise our free agency that determines if we get to ride in that boat Thom is singing about. When you've made the right choices, there's "nothing to fear and nothing to doubt".
pyramid | Reviewer: phil | 11/19/09
when u think of a river it flows and is constantly in motion but it can only go one way it may seem free and alive but it is just carryin on its course the only way that it can! this can be said about our consciousness and infact free will we are all just beings of circumstance and are living out our lives the only way we can we think we can decide for ourselves but really every action that we take is already pre determined our deliberation is just a product of every experience we have previously had and our free will is an illusion, but a beautiful one!!
My take on it | Reviewer: James Parker | 10/27/09
True, there is a lot of egyptian reference in the lyrics, but I a lot of Buddhism within here too. The idea that life death and consciousness all flow in one stream is a Buddhist idea, and they often chatacterized this flowing force as a river. Once you understand that everything flows together and is entirely collective, then you have reached enlightment.
pyramind | Reviewer: enoch | 10/8/09
love this song so much. I think the Egyptians used Pyramids to astral travel and since he references both, this is what he might be pointing to. Of course dying and going to heaven is the same thing, his use of imagery suggests a more conscious awareness of dying, a willingness so I think that suicide fits. Also, like pyramids, water can be used as a portal to the astral realm, so the jumping in the river and going directly into another world seems like that's what he's saying. I love everyone's insight.
The River | Reviewer: bigj | 10/2/09
Yorke said, "I read that the gnostics believe when we are born we are forced to forget where we have come from in order to deal with the trauma of arriving in this life. I thought this was really fascinating. It's like the river of forgetfulness. It may have been recorded at same time... but it comes from a different place I think. It sounds like finding an old chest in someone's attic with all these notes and maps and drawings and descriptions of going to a place you cannot remember. That's what I think anyway."
agreement | Reviewer: Ben | 9/26/09
""I'm fairly certain this song (at least for me) is related to Siddhartha, by Herman Hesse. I feel a very strong connection to that book with this song.
Also feel connected to the feeling of dying (the death itself).
I feel the same way :)
