There's many similarities between the book Siddhartha by Herman Hesse, and Pyramid Song. "All the figures I used to see, all my lovers were there with me, all my past and futures." is extremely similar to what Siddhartha sees when he looks in the river before he reaches enlightenment. "There was nothing to fear, nothing to doubt." also hints at enlightenment and/or perfect contentment.

This is about a dream, as a below interpretation said.
What I find beautiful about this song is the dreamlike state that Yorke portrays. Whenever I listen to it, it sounds like it's being played underwater, and someone wrote the lyrics while they were sleepwalking. It's quite beautiful.

I read before that this was about a dream Thom Yorke once had. If you see the video, I imagine that was something to similar to his dreams. The drumming is great, took me a while but I can play it.
A lot of Radiohead songs are about Thom's dreams, which makes it harder to understand what's inspired by the real world and what's from his dream world.
