This is one of those songs that the internet has too many opinions about. Some think it's about love, some think it's about politics. But I agree that it's about the extinction of humans, and about how the narrator would like to be part of the next dominant species. I used to love every Radiohead album, but not Hail To The Thief. It's just an album that deserves more listens. Until I finally liked 2+2=5, Sit Down, Stand Up and Sail To The Moon. And it stayed that way because I was too busy listening to the songs I like, to discover how good Myxomatosis and this song are.
