Sleight of hand jump off the end
Into a clear lake, no one around
Just dragonflies flying to the side
No one gets hurt, you've done nothing wrong
Slide your hand, jump off the end
The water's clear and innocent, the water's clear and innocent

It's a riot to drop back in here and see other RP listeners saying "Bill you play too much goddamned Radiohead!"

That said, for my money on the recent albums Thom Yorke is doing more singing than whining and there is an actual melody once in a while —- like here.

I will never forgive them for Creep, though.

maybe they have effectively contributed to more than a thousands to take radical decisions, important decision of any kind, but it is not because they are depressive, they aren´t, the word is "reflexive"

"Slide your hand" is a reference to the physical tuck required for an effective bomb.

The real giveaway is the title "Codex" - surely this is reference to the list of rules of acceptable behaviour.

code, codex - Code, from Latin codex, meaning "block of wood split into tablets, document written on wood tablets," was first a set of laws.

I'm with you, Jake. So obvious...who would think Radiohead would do a song about such a dark subject as suicide, anyway? Just a bunch of happy guys trying to lighten the mood is all.

I don't think anyone is with you.

It can be healing, to feel it.
To me, this is just beautiful and calming. I don't get depressed listening to it. Opposite actually.
