"Head General Hospital" as written by and Forrest Trabue....
we'll kick you
and your devotion to sloth wonder
in caveman style
you are only crawling faster
your eyes indent your oblong head
canonized in REM rhythm

you're not standing upright yet

sitting guilty in the spirit
of a passive sinner
oh look
your head
it's like a hospital hosting hypochondriacs"
you got yourself uptight
are there anymore
facts or fiction fit for further alliteration
you seem so safely spoon0fed
and we can't operate on
oblivious

we're not partners in
or paramedics for

this whole world's going to make you a part of it
this whole world is going to leave you out
call someone to alleviate the senses
never let
ever let your body feel
how your mind could leave it

you can see it in our faces
for we have travelled far
your mind is a long divide
a simple fraction of our time
deduct your logic
we'll lock up
or maybe just unlatch it
and throw yourself off
if you were meant for the wealth of applause
would a first floor window have a lock

there are no bleachers by bedsides
people build people in their (your) heads

    General CommentI believe that the song is a reference to those are meant and bound to worldy things and is an allusion directly of those people.

    "This world's gonna make you a part of it", is in reference to that when you die eventually you become dust and a part of the soil.

    "This world's gonna leave you out", this is the main point. He's in reference to what is truly human. The world he's referring to is the Ethereal, and that the mind of the person/people are wasted. They'll die, and the only existence left is the dirt.

    Never let your body feel, how your mind could leave it"- reinforcing the last statement. The actions carried out are negligence of the soul.

    4th stanza is a parody of meeting a person and contemplating throwing them out the window, seeing as to the narrarator believes that their existence is being wasted. To lock them up, or throw them out the window. "if you were meant for the wealth of applause...etc." It's believed that, that meaning is a waste of life, and would disregard bodies of such by throwing them out the window.
