How to Disapear Completly
Found on: Kid A
Lyrics
Notes
That there
That's not me
I go
Where I please
I walk through walls
I float down the Liffey
I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here
I'm not here

In a little while
I'll be gone
The moment's already passed
Yeah it's gone
And I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here
I'm not here

Strobe lights and blown speakers
Fireworks and hurricanes
I'm not here
This isn't happening
I'm not here
I'm not here



"How to Disappear Completely" boils down "Let Down" and "Karma Police" to their spectral essence. The string-laden ballad comes closest to bridging Yorke's lyrical sentiment to the instrumental effect. "I float down the Liffey/ I'm not here/ This isn't happening," he sings in his trademark falsetto. The strings melt and weep as the album shifts into its underwater mode.

-Nigel: (when asked if the song had gone over 10 mins): "No no no no no no. It's going good I think. haven't touched it this year. 6 minutes, I hate people who exaggerate." January 19, 2000

-Thom: (when asked about the meaning of the line "I float down the Liffey"): "I dreamt i was floating down the liffey and there was nothing i could do. i was flying around Dublin and I really was in the Dream. the whole song is my experiences of really floating" December 19, 1999

-Phil: "parts I & II are finished - the final movement is proving a little tricky though." December 3, 1999
