"La sovrappopolazione di conigli in Australia rappresenta il caso di più veloce di incremento demografico di mammiferi mai registrato sulla Terra"
Su interpretazione e significato del pezzo:
<< This song is obviously about Radiohead's climb to fame, and what it's like to Thom to be an international superstar.
The first verse is about Radiohead showing off their songs. Thom refers to them as "half a head," which is a reference to the fact that they now see them as pretty poor, and particularly dislike the song which initially got them fame, Creep. The lines "She ate me up for breakfast, She screwed me in a vice" refer to the fact that the record company were eager to sign Radiohead, but in the process severely inhibited them in what they really wanted to sing about.
The next part "I don't know why, I feel so tongue-tied, I sat in the cupboard, And wrote it down real neat" refers to Thom's depression (around the time of OK Computer), and how he felt that the only way to express this was through writing songs.
"But it got edited fucked up, Strangled beaten up, Used in a photo in time magazine" shows how Thom's songs (and the meanings behind them) were changed by the record company in order to mass commercialise them, and then subsequently misunderstood by the masses.
"Buried in a burning black hole in devon" is another reference to his depression, and writing songs while depressed (in Devon).
"Yeah no one likes a smart ass but we all like stars
But that wasn't my intention, I did it for a reason
It must have got mixed up" is a final reference to the fact that he's been mistaken frequently by the press, and seen as someone completely up himself and who thinks his message is all important (a la Bono), when that wasn't his intention in the slightest >>
<< I think this song is about about fame and it's affect on someone. I don't know if Thom's writing it from his own point of view or as someone else.
In the first verse he's only just found fame and he's still cocky about it and enjoying himself: '"I been where I liked", "I slept with who I like"'
'New found friends' probably refers to all of the new people fawning over him now he's famous and sucessful.
Not sure about the last bit of this verse, it might be refering to people fucking him about and using him.
In the second verse the first bit 'i sat in the cupboard
and wrote it down neat' is presumabley refering to him writing his songs on his own and how he likes. But later on his original ideas get "edited fucked up
strangled beaten up", presumabley by producers and record companies attempting to make his music more public friendly or something.
The 'cheering and waving' bit is obviously the fans.
The rest of the verse is about him being pulled from all directions, doing shows and photoshoots etc.
The last verse mostly seems to be about how he feels it has all affected him.
'my thoughts are misguided and a little naive' is probably about him feeling that he's being by other people.
He uses the disease myxamatosis as he feels that the pressure of fame and success has driven him insane.
'yeah no one likes a smart ass but we all like stars
but that wasn't my intention, I did it for a reason ' I think is fairly self explainatory. He wanted stardome but now he has it it's not what he wanted it to be >>
<< For those of you wondering why this song shares a line with Myxomatosis, I have a theory:
1. Myxomatosis can be interpreted as being about censorship or executive meddling
2. Cuttooth was supposed to be on Amnesiac, but was left off at the last moment for unexplained reasons
3. Therefore, we can infer that Myxomatosis is about the label removing Cuttooth from Amnesiac, hence the same line in both of them >>
