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

from Radiohead – Weird Fishes/Arpeggi Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Listen to the way Yorke sings this bit.

It’s quite obvious that this has happened to him many a time before, so much now that he’s accepted the conclusion to his illusion. There’s a direct link between this bit and the previous bit, and the true driving force behind Yorke’s character action is Hope.

Hope that this time, his seduction would be more than an illusion, and that it would be real. A real relationship, but again, he falls back into the depths, picked over by the worms and weird fishes; everything that surrounds depression and failure. Its very sad the way he depicts it.
