In the deepest ocean
The bottom of the sea
Your eyes
They turn me

Why should I stay here?
Why should I stay?

I’d be crazy not to follow
Follow where you lead
Your eyes
They turn me

Turn me on to phantoms
I follow to the edge of the earth
And fall off
Everybody leaves
If they get the chance
And this is my chance

I get eaten by the worms
And weird fishes
Picked over by the worms
And weird fishes
Weird fishes
Weird fishes

Yeah I
I’ll hit the bottom
Hit the bottom and escape
Escape
And I
I’ll hit the bottom
Hit the bottom
Hit the bottom and escape
Escape

– Weird Fishes by Radiohead

[This stop motion video was one of four winners of the Aniboom/Radiohead animation contest. There was, of course, only to be one winner. But Radiohead was so impressed with the submissions that they quadrupled the prize. Some background and all four winners – all worth viewing – are posted here at Consequence of Sound (make sure to hit the volume sliders on the individual animations – for some reason they’re automatically turned down).  More info on Animboom can be found here.]

H/T to miscellany…yet again…
