Street Spirit Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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

Fade out again
Fade out again

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

Fade out again
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

Fade out again
Fade out again

Immerse your soul in love
Immerse your soul in love

Songwriters
YORKE, THOMAS / O'BRIEN, EDWARD JOHN / GREENWOOD, COLIN CHARLES / GREENWOOD, JONATHAN RICHARD GUY / SELWAY, PHILIP
