"Radiology" as written by and Michael L. Shepard....
I believe in my garden home,
And the chemicals I need to make it grow,
Later on, the glowing teeth,
Lessons learned in radiology

Choking on the tales of joy and bliss,
Broken sails, we should bale, but let's kiss,
I'll embrace the brewing thunder and let it take me under

I believe in the search of the fawn,
The forest creatures wild, but so am I,
The bloody noses, the broken arms,
Lessons learned well in mythology

Amaurosis, I belong in an asylum,
Abused yet confused what you like,
Tar angels await as I learn to hate,
This perfect world of my life

    General CommentThe first verse seems so innocent that it remids me of a child reciting what they've learned in school. It makes me sad what kind of places children have to grow up in. "Tar angels await as I learn to hate this perfect world of my life"

    General Comment"I believe in my garden home,
    and in the chemicals I need to make it grow"

    I think the "garden home" is some kind of delusion or drug-induced hallucination. He "believes" in it; this can be interpreted three ways. First, he believes it literally exists. Second, he places his trust in it; he believes it will bring him happiness and fulfillment. Third, both the first and second options.

    The "chemicals" he needs "to make it grow" may be drugs, either ellicit or medical. Maybe the speaker is a psychiatric patient 1) whose medications are actually worsening his condition // or 2) whose so-called medications are actually the cause of his problems // 3) who has been put into a delusional stupor by medication: he is "in his own little world"

    I'm still trying to figure this song out really, I'll probably add some other comments later on. So try to help if you can.
