The Chariot - "Exit Music (For a Film)" by Radiohead

[The charioteer is usually thought to be the child of the two Lovers, rejecting their world and setting off on his own dangerous course through life. I can't imagine a more wrenching departure than this...]

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 lose 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
