03. pulk/pull revolving doors

The technological terror suggested by the abrasive beats is reflected in Yorke's 'fear of freedom' lyric which, though barely dicernible, has a pronounced 'door' motif. This derived, he explained, from a scene in Alice in Wonderland, "where she walks down the corridor and there are lots of different doors. And I was in that corridor, mentally, for six months... Every door I opened, was like, dreading opening it, 'cos I didn't know what was gonna happen next."
