This is the place
Sit down, you're safe now
You've been stuck in a lift
We've been trying to reach you, Thom

This is the place
It won't hurt, it will not hurt

A smell of recognition
A face you barely loved
Empty all your pockets
'Cause it's time to go home

This is the place
Remembering all the things you always see

You've been stuck in a lift
In the belly of a whale
At the bottom of the ocean

A smell of recognition
A face you barely loved
Empty all your pockets
'Cause it's time to go home

Today is the first day of the rest of your days
So lighten up, squirt
