This haunting piano ballad finds Yorke inviting us to dive into "a clear lake." "No one gets hurt" he promises. The song is, according to Rolling Stone writer Will Hermes, "about washing yourself clean in a world of dirty water."
A cello led string section enters later in the track. The strings are performed by The London Telefilmonic Orchestra.
The song also features long, mournful horn trills, making it the most horn-filled Radiohead song since Amnesiac's "Life In a Glasshouse."
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
