Cause Of Patient's Relapse (new song by me)

Cause of Patient’s Relapse
___________________________

Here on the brink of suicide
It’s do or die, do or die
Dear Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Hello and or goodbye

Angel Dust has me reaching for the stars
When I shut my eyes I dream of bright lights
Hearing the doctor say, after seeing my chart
“Good thing this one is Losing The Fight”

Height was my greatest fear
So they just amputated my wings
Which looked beautiful beside my ears
Cut off, so I wouldn’t hear the fat lady sing

Instead of asking the doctor for meds
Or “how much time do I have left?”
So self-conscious on my deathbed
I request to know, “how’s my breath?”

Here on the brink of suicide
It’s do or die, do or die
Dear Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Hello and or goodbye

Trigger-happy playing Russian roulette
Picture snapping my disappointed reactions
New century’s biggest surgery on the television set
Procedure was a success, I’m dead to their satisfaction

Just my size, what a picture perfect fit
An although I’m not yet in dissected bits
Even comes with a body bag to match it
I’m calling finder’s keeper’s on this casket

After your death
“We’ve got a pulse”
Take in a breath
“We’ve got a pulse”

After your death
“We’ve got a pulse”
Take in a breath
“We’ve got a pulse”

They said, no way I would survive
But with a homicidal heart attack
To all their ironic surprise
I’m bringing my pulse back

The doctors were optimistic
That I was gonna die
Just so sick of the statistics
I’m still here aren’t I

Stay awake an kill the bedbugs
Say you’re alive or begin lying
Fill your day with L.I.F.E. the drug
We’ll survive or die trying

They said “you’re gonna die, but enjoy your stay”
Well tomorrow I’ll be looking them in the face
An the proof that pleads my case
I’ve still got a pulse on display

When a pulse is steady
The person’s not ready
“Come back to the noise son”
Just bleed out all the poison

Now breathe in and exhale together
Take two on reviewed mistakes
I won’t wait under this veil forever
It’s never too late to stay awake

Stay awake an kill the bedbugs
Say you’re alive or begin lying
Fill your day with L.I.F.E. the drug
We’ll survive or die trying
