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

from Radiohead – Weird Fishes/Arpeggi Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Acceptance of failure, but willingness to try again and again, in the hope that some day he’ll take that jump and succeed at Love, but as long as you follow the eyes and not the heart, you’ll never succeed.

This can also mean that the character has found his solace, and has come to grips with reality, so much that his mind is in a full state of consciousness; escaped from the illusion that drove him over the edge.

The entire song is a continuous process of falling into the curse of Seduction, and separating fiction from reality. Everyone leaves if they get the chance is a clear indication of taking that step and that risk to fall in love, but you’ll always be picked over by worms and weird fishes when you look for love in all the wrong places, and this picking over can lead back to Depression, or you can embrace it and emancipate yourself; Escape, like the song suggests.
