Do you remember the txt file that came with "These Are My Twisted Words" torrent?:

i just wanted to reassure readers
that following representations
seeking confirmation
that before your very eyes
behind the wall of ice
that the box is not under threat
however they are set to remove
other boxes
in fact i have the list in front of me
i went to a briefing on their plans
and challenged them to tell me
exactly what the cost would be

they spoke in broad terms


-------
Theres a line with BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES. So probably this song was meant for Radiohead as "Wall Of Ice" but left out for Thom Yorke's Atoms For Peace (being included in upcomming album AMOK).

These words could be part of it's lyrics.

the wall of ice/eyes also appears in the universal sigh. my first interpretation was that the wall of eyes is us, the fans. like standing on stage and looking at a wall of eyes staring back at you. it's too long for me to type here but here's a part:

 

this is just a game

for which there are no rules

so we are only playing

behind a wall of eyes.

for our own protection behind a wall of ice.

....

i can make you laugh

and make you proud

proud that you are mine

behind a wall of eyes

pulling at my chord

gently laughing now

because you're having fun

i'll tell you what it's like

i think i know

i think i feel the same

behind a wall of ice

behind a wall of eyes

Hmm that's pretty interesting. It's a really good track, I wonder why they decided to leave it off tkol. I guess there was only room for one opener?

I'm pretty sure this is Before Your Very Eyes

since

1.They played it first in the 'live' show, and it's the first track on the AMOK.

2. The intro is some voice talking like anouncing some nuclear strike. Seems logic looking at the early Atoms For Peace website and totally logic to start a Thom Yorke/related album

(WTF does this mean anyway, only see NUCLEREK as NUCLEAR)

3. Thom sais it at 6.17

So sorry John Cusack but no Wall of Ice

again
