"Exit Music (For a Film)" as written by and Thomas Edward/greenwood Yorke....
Wake
From your sleep
The drying of
Your tears
Today
We escape
We escape

Pack
And get dressed
Before your father hears us
Before
All hell
Breaks loose

Breathe
Keep breathing
Don't loose
Your nerve
Breathe
Keep breathing
I can't do this
Alone

Sing
Us a song
A song to keep
Us warm
There's
Such a chill
Such a chill

You can laugh
A spineless laugh
We hope your
Rules and wisdom choke you

Now
We are one
In everlasting peace

We hope that you choke
That you choke
We hope that you choke
That you choke
We hope
That you choke
That you choke

    General CommentThis song sounds like it about suicide. 'Wake from your sleep' you are inside your own head. You have to wake up to the world and do something. 'The drying of your tears' No more tears, you don't want to cry anymore. 'Today we escape' you and all your thoughts will escape from the pain of this world. 'Pack and get dressed before your father hears us' you want to leave somewhere to end it all before your parents wake up. 'Before all he'll breaks loose' Before you can't handle it anymore, before you decide to do there and then. You don't want your family to find your body. 'Breathe keep breathing' you panic so much you feel like you are going to pass out. 'Dont loose your nerve keep breathing' you are doubting your decisions. You think you can get through it and all will be fine for a while. 'I can't do this alone' but you feel so alone you want to die again. 'Sing us a song a song to keeep us warm' you need a distraction to make you feel something to feel alive. 'There's such a chill such a chill' but the world is so cold. 'You can laugh a spineless laugh we hope your rules and wisdom choke you' you think look who's laughing now. How will my so-called friend survive without me? But the laugh is spineless because you think that you don't matter and your freind will soon forget about you. 'Now we are one in everlasting peace' you imagine what it is like to be dead. 'We hope that you choke...' you hope everyone suffers when you are dead and that you are in peace.

    This is not what death is like. You will not be in peace. When you are at the lowest of your lows your mind lies to you. Everyone cares about but either you don't know how to see it or they don't know how to show it. Communication is key.
