STREET SPIRIT (FADE OUT)
Found on: The Bends
Lyrics
Notes
Rows of houses all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me  
Hold these things into position  
All these things will want this world   

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 it's beady eyes  
Hold 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.
This song was written in 1993, around the same time as "My Iron Lung." "Creep" is Radiohead's American hit, this is the British equivalent. Laced with Ed's absolutely perfect arpeggios, the track has a mesmerizing quality that links it to the work of Stereolab. With lyrics about feeling like a very small person in an intimidating world, this fan favorite is memorable and timeless.
