Pyramid Song Lyrics - Radiohead

Review The Song (73)

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

I jumped into the river
Black-eyed angels swam with me
A moon full of stars and astral cars
And 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

There was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt
There was nothing to fear and nothing to doubt

To Friend | Reviewer: Learn to politics | 9/15/13

1. Socialism is on the mid to far left of the political spectrum ( Right of communism), fascism is one the FAR right. The idea of Fascist Socialism is laughable.

2. you crap on about how everything is occult, then say I'll pray for you. Although this could be an innocent figure of speech I don't think so, your opinions scream batshit crazy Christan. which makes you just as much of a cultist as anyone.

3. Do you realize how many of radio heads songs are in an ironic tone, I'm sure fake plastic trees is ACTUALLY about how much they love cosmetic surgery.

What the actual fuck. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/10/12

...Right. Even if Thom Yorke SOMEHOW meant for this song to be about the Qu'ran or "Illuminati"... WHO GIVES A SHIT. Songs are meant to be INTERPRETED by the LISTENER. It just so happens that several of these listeners are FUCKING CRAZY. And there's no evidence for a Jewish god, a Muslim god, a Christian god, a Norse god, a Zoroastrian god, a Hindu god... the fucking list goes fucking on, people.

Agree With Friend | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/8/12

Friend if you look at the Quran, the song reminded me of Pharaoh Ramsi II of Egypt chasing Moses and the Jews as they escaped Egypt through the Red Sea. As the Red Sea closed on the Egyptians Ramsi saw they error of his ways and begged God/Allah for forgiveness. God/Allah said he would preserve his body as a sign to future when we have lost our way. Ramsi's body was found in the dead sea preserved with all his organs and without mummification (and he looked a lot better than most Pharaoh's who have been mumified).

The reason this song reminds me of this passage because 1)the title Pyramid Song Reminded me of Ancient Egypt 2)The jumping into the river 3)The black-eyed angels sounded sinister to me and the Egyptians are supposedly the first devil worshipers and first to implement mind-control

But you should not just dismiss what Friend is saying, he has a good point that I completely agree with. If you are looking for something to help you become more informed then check out The Wake Up Project's website and the documentary The Arrivals. Since this will be the only time I will be visiting this site for this song I will say one last thing. Keep actively looking for the truth and do not dismiss anything just because someone has told you it is true. God gave you eyes, God gave you ears, and God has given you a brain so use them to find the truth.

Love this song | Reviewer: P Soup | 12/5/11

The "Friend" poster may be on to something. I agree a lot with some of the things he mentioned. Secret Societys. In the case of Radiohead, not quite sure. None of us REALLy know. Just speculation. Hell, if I didnt look up the lyrics online, I wouldnt understand have the shit Thom York says anyway...lmao. The song is very very tight though. I can listen to it over and over.

Derp | Reviewer: Some guy | 11/28/11

Hahah "Friend" probably thought he was gonna blow everyones mind with his interpretation.
This site is kind of retarded though, cause the only person who can really tell you what the song means is the person who wrote it.

Relating it with the video | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/26/11

First time I tried to get the meaning out of this song, was when I was listening to it and watching the video at the same time. At that time, I didn't search up the lyrics, so I just picked the words that I could hear as it went on. The song probably is very related to the Pyramids, or that River Idea.

My thought were (while I was watching the video). 1. giving up in life or surviving it, "I jumped into the River" SUICIDE came into my mind while looking at all that water. You might be able to see at the end of the vid, that at the end of the hose of the air tank is actually cut off, suggesting that the man already knew this. "All my lovers were there with me, all my past and futures" thinking about what a life he has had and what will happen after he would have passed away.

That was my idea..

Perception is each individuals right, you can't force someone to think in one direction. Learn to appreciate different view points and stop yourself from turning in to a prejudiced animal. Keep the flame of originality and a helping mentality alive, respect someones work by not imitating, strive to create something new everyday and no I didn't mean Arms & Ammunition or Drugs to alter perception.

Unite- live as one, solve someones problem, wipe a tear away, plant a smile.

There is enough fighting, sadness, fear and bad things happening in this world. Consecutive upcoming generations need to move their thought towards love and be able to unite the world and eliminate the mishapens.

Hopefully someday.

Friends & Foes | Reviewer: The Messenger | 9/2/11

When music carries with it a political undertone, it has the power to move people (just as music typically does). So to say that music was never meant to contain politics is ridiculous...just look at Rage Against the Machine.
With the current state of the nation, one must ask, "Do we not need a fire-starter, something to move us, to move the youth to change what we thought we could never change?"
Yes, "Friend"s explanation and thoughts are a bit "out-outfied." But at least the kid is thinking and using his brain. Which with today's youth is rarely seen. Critical thinking/conecting-the-dots is what the nation needs to wake up and get busy doing.
And what better to spur this thought pattern than music. Music/lyrics evokes emotions within, which then can force you into THINKING. So what if the song is simply about a man swimming in the rive. Art is meant to be interpretted by each person SEPERATELY and then share the ideas/thoughts/etc concerning the piece.

Why put a stopper on thought?

trip/death | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/20/11

Anyone who has had a near-death experience, taken the right drug at the right time or meditated and reached that higher plane will be able to appreciate these lyrics.

All my past and futures?
Nothing to fear, nothing to doubt?

I'm not even going to go into it. This song is, assuredly, about a visit to the astral plane. The perceived 'after-life'.

lol @ "Friend"'s review | Reviewer: Nathan | 8/16/11

Wow "Friend."

You are a raving lunatic. Not to say that there aren't occultist elites or whatever. But you have SERIOUS mental issues if you think this song has ANYTHING to do with that crap. Radiohead is an escape from the madness of our world. They aren't in cohoots with the elites you idiot. YOU need to wake up and stop believing every bullshit conspiracy theory garbage you read on the internet. In fact, do yourself and the world a favor and cut your internet cable because you're not the kind of person who knows how to handle and properly discern information. If you think this song has anything to do with "elites" or "free masonry" or anything like this, you're a whack job. Seek help.

Beautiful song with obscure lyrics like many other Radiohead songs. Thom leaves things open ended for interpretation but some people (like "Friend") take things WAY too far. Thom would probably be insulted if he read "Friend's" message. What a moron.

what? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/9/11

That is officially thee most outlandish explanation for any song in existance. I think Thom would puke if he saw that. Oh, and fuck you. Music was never meant to be political especially the brilliabce that is Radiohead.

Occults pssh | Reviewer: Kkshims | 4/3/11

I don't know where people get all these crazy ideas about obvious and free masons. No ones going to kidnap Thom Yorke lmao when do you actually hear about musicians being kidnapped to brainwash the public. This song is quite basic open to interpretation but I nice song overall as for free masons and occults if your so worried about the destruction of the world and corrupt officials what exactly do you intend to do to change that? Write reviews search for hidden messages and then what, nothing. There are a lot of things in life we cannot control stick to what you can and you should be able to say yes I had a good life and you'll have "nothing to doubt and nothing to fear. "

A little to far there Friend. | Reviewer: Gravy | 3/30/11

That was a little to far there my friend. Like others have said this song is an inspiration from a book.
Music doesn't always have to have political undertones.. maybe its simple, is that that hard to believe?
Am I correct to say that this is based on Egyptians theism? when a Pharaoh dies this is what they must do to enter their "heaven".
I really don't enjoy it when people thrust their political meanings into a song, that has no political meanings, whatsoever. Music is powerful enough without having politics implicated into it, as you can clearly see from this song.
I don't think this song has any anti-war/free-masons or any other kind of bull shit in it. Its a song about a man swimming in a river and having a time of his life, or "afterlife" however you see it.

Keep the thinking, thinking.

To a Friend | Reviewer: Friend too | 3/20/11

Hi Friend. I agree with you. but its not sure that Thom Yorke has any clue of what he is doing. Its a song that, if you dont focuss too much on the lyrics, is really relaxing and nice. thats what music is about. make good vibrations. some of those who are "so enlightened well red" are spreading fear and chaos. maybe its you who are their puppets? What a great idea to control the minds of young, creative and angry youth. make the rest sheep. television and entertaintment like radiohead sucks. well weekend

thom is a semi-god | Reviewer: Ruy | 1/15/11

Its hard to understand if you're not like him, i mean, if you really care about the world. He is leaving lots of advices to the human race and we don't get them.
Im sure he is travelling all around the astral space everytime.
He said it once as a clue in How to disappear completely
Try to understand In rainbows.
