"Take Me to the Hospital" as written by Keith Charles Flint, Liam Howlett and Paul Malmstrom....
Hold my hand, it's shakin' bad
I'm going to the doc
I pay him to fix me up
I think I've got enough
No no an ambulance would cost too much
We'll take a van
If they can't fix me no one can
If they can fix me no one can't

Want you to take me to the H, take me to the O
Want you to take me to the S, take me to the P
Want you to take me to the I-T-A-L
Want you to take me to the hospital

Hospital
Now I'm losing blood from my veins
They're slowly emptying
I'm bothered by this crimson red
To the color of blood

To the color of a be, color of a L
To the color of a O, color of O
To the color of a Deep crimson red
From a little-bitty accident

Accident
I scraped up my face
Bounced my cheek on the floor
Cause anything worth doing's worth getting hurt for
I made no mistakes
I'm never learning from that
I've got no regrets
I want to do it again
With the A-G-A-I-N

So you can take me to the H, take me to the O,
Want you to take me to S, take me to the P,
Want you to take me to the I-T-A-L
Want you to take me to the hospital
Cause it's the color of a be, color of a L
To the color of a O, color of O
To the color of a Deep crimson red
From a little bitty accident

[Repeat x2]
Want you to take me to the hospital

    General CommentThe only thing I can think of is skateboarding because he talks about it being an accident and then he says he has no regrets, and he wants to do it again.

    General CommentI thought about it more and maybe it is about drugs or drinking and he is saying he would still do it again.

    General Commenti think that its about life in general, metaphorical and s**t. like, you do what you want in life, and you may get hurt but enjoy it, and never let that stop you.

    General Commenti also agree with Dang. the line, "anything worth doing, is worth getting hurt for." sort of gives it away. the more something means, the more it may hurt you, but you always have to take chances... because in the end it'll be worth the pain.

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song, I had an image in my head that this person had fallen from dancing drunk on a table. Now they're being taken to a hospital.

    General CommentI think people may be thinking about this one too much; despite the line in the middle "anything worth doing's worth getting hurt for" I don't really feel it's supposed to be at all deep. It reminds me of when I cut my finger last year and blood was everywhere and I ended up getting 7 stitches (I was REALLY ANNOYED that I had to go to the hospital), or when my ex hurt himself skating; I think the song is literally just about some seemingly minor, easy-to-get injury that still requires being taken to the hospital, and how if you live your life in a way you won't regret (so, not like a paranoid wuss who's afraid to leave the house), you'll probably injure yourself a few times.
