**//This must be the place I waited years to leave//** is a cover song by LorD and Master, originally by Pet Shop Boys from their album, //Behaviour//, which is Dan's favourite Pet Shop Boys album. The song is about an anxiety dream revolving around school.

Lyrics

 * Each morning
 * After sun blessed
 * Feel the benefit of mental arithmetic
 * I waited 
 * By the staff room
 * In time for benediction
 * Living a law just short of delusion
 * When we fall in love, there's confusion
 * This must be the place I waited years to leave
 * To our voices,
 * Nobody's listening
 * We shiver in the rain by a touchline
 * Then a coach ride
 * To the station
 * My lord, the carriage awaiteth
 * Living a law just short of delusion
 * When we fall in love, there's confusion
 * This must be the place I waited years to leave
 * This must be the place I waited years to leave
 * And how
 * Everybody 
 * Ev
 * Everybody
 * Everybody
 * Ev
 * Everybody
 * How long?
 * Everybody
 * Ev 
 * Everybody
 * Everbody
 * Jump to attention
 * I'm listening to the words I thought I'd never hear again
 * A litany of saints and other ordinary men
 * Kneeling on the parqué, whatever has gone wrong?
 * The fear and feeling hopelessness I don't want to belong
 * I dreamt I was back in uniform
 * And a candidate for examination
 * History, someone had blundered
 * And a voice rapped, "knuckle under!"

  * Living a law just short of delusion

 * When we fall in love, there's confusion
 * This must be the place I waited years to leave
 * This must be the place I waited years to leave
 * And how
 * How long?
 * This must be the place I waited years to leave
 * This must be the place I waited years to leave
 * And how
 * How long?
 * How long?
 * How long?
 * This must be the place
 * Be the place
 * Be the place 
 * I waited years to leave
 * And how
 * How long?
