TITLE. LYRICS

Peel Session version

Exercise one

When you're looking at life
In a strange new room
Maybe drowning soon
Is this the start of it all?
Turn down your TV
Turn down your pulse
Turn away from it all
It's all getting too much

When you're looking at life
Deciphering scars
Just who fooled who
Sit still in their cars
The lights look bright
When you reach outside
Time for one last ride
Before the end of it all
