  • Lyrics
  • Lead singer Thom Yorke: "We were stuck in a snow storm in Japan. It was the most beautiful thing we had never seen. The snow was accumulating in a thick carpet on the branches, a train was passing by and the snow would collapse. The whole world was covered with snow, except for a few black and white spots. This is where it came from. The words come from this image." >>
