  • Lyrics
  • Lewis Carroll's Victorian literary nonsense novel Alice's Adventure's In Wonderland was an influence on Amnesiac. In particular the nightmarish sequence where Alice arrived in a hall of locked doors inspired this song. Thom Yorke said: "Revolving Doors for example, is something that happened in my brain where... Like, Alice in Wonderland. Where she walks down the corridor and there are lots of different doors. I was sort of in that corridor, mentally for 6 months. And that was an extremely central part, for me, what I was writing. 'Cos every door I opened, it was like, dreading opening it. 'Cos I didn't know what was gonna happen next. See, that makes perfect sense!"
