You got the tubes
Removed from you
And now we can play with you
Just like we used to

So wrap them up well
Another story to tell
And now we can play with you
Just like we used to

I can’t imagine what it’s like
To say doctor, doctor dear
Please play with my life
Hooray you did not die
Heaven was denied
And all our cries were satisfied
Cause you got the tubes

To hell with ringing bells to visit you
Did you feel our attempts to evacuate you
From your dingy hospital tomb
From everyone’s living room
All our cries were amplified
Cause you got the tubes

When I saw you in the hospital room
I had no reaction cause I was fine there once
The sterile smell of the soap it made me
Reconnect the lost thoughts of your death or survival

I was a juror at your trial
Furious cause it seemed rehearsed
Like the driving route of the company hearse
That’ll never run out of clients

I admire your defiance
Cause I didn’t get unglued
As much as you needed to prove
That you could be reassembled
To try and find your peace
I knew you could be reassembled
To try to find your peace

You got the tubes removed from you
