One by one
One by one
It comes to us all
It's as soft as your pillow

from Radiohead – 15 Step Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This reminds me of a Wilfred Owen poem we’ve read in class, called Asleep, about death coming to a sleeping soldier and how death could be a redemption on life.

It says,
Whether his deeper sleep lie shaded by the shaking
Of great wings, and the thoughts that hung the stars,
High-pillowed on calm pillows of God’s making,“

I think the narrator here is speaking about death in a very releasing way. This adds up, speaking about the hanging. It is a very beautiful picture of death
