This track was recorded in the ballroom of actress Jane Seymour's mansion at 3 A.M. It closes with computerized sounds created by ZX Spectrum computers, which all the members of Radiohead owned in the 1980s. Jonny explains what it's all about: "It's like when Andy Warhol said he enjoyed being bored. It's about that feeling that you get when you're not in control of it – you just go past thousands of places and thousands of people and you're completely removed from it." Thom: "I was pissed in a club, and I suddenly had the funniest thought I'd had for ages – what if all the people who were drinking were hanging from the bottles… if the bottles were hung from the ceiling with string, and the floor caved in, and the only thing that kept everyone up was the bottles? It's also about an enormous fear of being trapped."

Let Down - Radiohead

Transport, motorways and tramlines
Starting and then stopping
Taking off and landing
The emptiest of feelings
Disappointed people clinging on to bottles
And when it comes it's so, so disappointing

Let down and hanging around
Crushed like a bug in the ground
Let down and hanging around

Shell smashed, juices flowing
Wings twitch, legs are going
Don't get sentimental
It always ends up drivel
One day, I am gonna grow wings
A chemical reaction
Hysterical and useless
Hysterical and...
Let down and hanging around
Crushed like a bug in the ground
Let down and hanging around

Let down and hanging around
Let down and hanging around
Let down and hanging around

You know, you know where you are with
You know where you are with
Floor collapsing, falling, bouncing back
And one day, I am gonna grow wings
A chemical reaction [You know where you are]
Hysterical and useless [You know where you are]
Hysterical and [You know where you are]
Let down and hanging around
Crushed like a bug in the ground
Let down and hanging around
