(Sounds of Hospital Activity)

Violent J:
I like to suffocate people and bite their necks
They got me in a place that ain't like the rest
And all you gotta do, is try to go for the neck
And it's sedatives, sedatives, like this...

Slowed down, colors smear all around
Wierd sounds, you're livin' in the head of a clown
And the wicked ones somehow spinnin' around
Wheel me down the hallway, arms strapped down
It's sedatives...

Shaggy:
Hangin' all out the neck from the IV
Sedatives for the lively
Study me, ask me, no answer.
I'm cuttin' your neck fisrt chance-ah.

Violent J:
White walls, white floors, small rooms...
After sedatives, they become ballrooms
Crows fly by my window slow
Headin' that way but lookin' at me, though

(Crows Cawing)
Both:
Sedatives (Sedatives)
Sedadate me (Sedatives)
Sedadate me (Sedatives)
Sedatives (Sedatives)

Shaggy:
I'm an accident, human malfunction, at best
And I'm lookin' at the scalpal stickin' into your chest
If I could only move, but them sedatives..
You know they savin' your life, them sedatives..
Some of these other patients are strong as hell
Suffocatin' one creep took me long as hell
Then I took his sedatives.. Well, I thought they were sedatives
But they were only medatives

Violent J:
I fake pain, call 'em over and play dead
And yank a fistful of hair out the nurse lady's head
Hi, I'm sedatives again. They put me in a tiny place
Chinstrap muzzle over my face
I threw a guy off the roof first day they admitted me
And I was sedidated and that's when it hit me
The only time I'm at peace is when I ain't even there
God, tell me why the fuck am I here?!

(Screaming and crows cawing)

A lobotomy, or shock therapy
Come clean me nurse, take care of me
I suffocated the last two they sent in alone
They had to stick me in the chest with a shot of methadone
Recreation time, wheel me to the courtyard
Four guards in white, and they might be important
And the sky is blue and I can watch trees grow
Watch the leaves blow and join the sedatives show

Shaggy:
Well I even have my very own room these days
White straight jacket, padded walls and PJs
But there's so many ways and every stunt I pull
I even slammed my own mouth right on the toilet bowl
For attention, maybe, not to mention a sedative
Heard one guy say "Why even let it live?"
There's probably no sedatives in hell
And that's the only reason I'm alive still

Violent:
The witch is everywhere and I can see that, y'all
I stabbed one nurse in the neck with a straw
A plastic straw. Yeah, it's flimsy and weak
But if you cork it with your thumb and hold it right...
(FWEEEK!)

(Song ends)

(Tapping on glass)
Girl: I'm out here...
