"Hospital Bed Crawl" as written by and Robert Samuel Morris....
In the backseat of a car
In the corner of a room
In the shadow's where I hide, from you

Do the Hospital Bed Crawl
And the termite on you,
And we're finally alone, I feel

[Chorus]
Well, hey, you're the only thing I wouldn't change
In this place, it's strange to say
You're the only angel I ever gave away

In an alleyway way down town
There's a lurker making rounds
Keeping track and keeping tabs, on you

And he likes the taste of blood
And he loves the way you love
And that's just what he wants from you

[Chorus]

I don't want no shining eyes
And darling don't you be polite
I'm not like all the other boys, I won't take a "no"
I'm soaking in your cinnamon,
I take in more than I can give,
Without you I'm alone, so I'll never let you go

[Chorus]

    General CommentI think it's about how he's stalking a girl he broke up with because he wasn't good for her, but now he senses someone else coming into her life who is worse for her. He's trying to say I know I lost you once, but there's more trouble out there so even if you don't want me, watch out.
    That's my idea, but hey, I think alot of songs are about stalkers.

    General CommentI do believe that the sort of affection described in this song is more pure than what has been suggested.

    What I think he describes in having been in love with someone and now regretting and hating that the relationship has ending. As far as hiding in the shadows, he is trying to escape the memory of her because she was an angel and he wishes that he had not given her away. The lurker who lusts after blood and love is just someone that he seems to want to protect her from and through this he is stating (in a sort of extended metaphor fashion) that he is better for her than many others could be and that his sort of love is more pure.
    The bridge seems to state this feeling of how she always meant so much and that she never quite loved him the same way. And how he is now struggling with himself in wanting her but also in wanting to get over her.
    And so he has this sort of disease and infection of her.

    And, really: It's the Hush Sound. Nobody's going to get raped in a Hush Sound song.

    General CommentA few changes:

    "And the terminally ill"
    should be
    "do the terminal yell"

    "There's a looker making rounds"
    should be
    "theres a lurker making rounds"

    "Darling, don't you keep a light?"
    should be
    "darling i wont be polite"

    "Not like all the other boys"
    should be
    "i'm just like all the other boys"

    "I'm soaking in your sentiment"
    should be
    "im soaking in your cinnamon"

    the almighty lyric book speaks the truth :D

    General Commenti'm hearing some different things...
    but feel free to ignore, or consider. meh.

    Do the hospital bed crawl
    Do the terminal yell
    ~in the terminally ill.

    as in...the section of the hospital for the termianlly ill. ..?

    I don't want your shining eyes
    Darling, I won't be polite
    ~darling don't you be polite
    I'm just like all the other boys
    ~i'm not like all the other boys.

    little things...but make some difference. *shrug*

    General CommentJubeJube, I think you're right.
    And it may seem like little changes, but the meaning is completely different. Like "do the hospital yell" it sounds reaaally out of place :P.

    General Commentis it me, or do a lot of the songs from this new album mention giving away someone or something? it seems like a constant theme or something. like That's Okay for example. and i think Molasses too.

    General CommentI think that Bob is playing the part of a doctor or something, and he is talking to a patient with a devastating diesease, like cancer...
    And I think that what he is trying to say is that the 'lurker making rounds' is the dieease, and so Bob is telling the patient that even though his job is to cure that person, he doesn't want them to leave the hospital because he'd miss them...like how Suze in the mediator series doesn't want Jesse to pass on.

    Yes, my interpetation of this doesn't make sense. Oh well.

    General CommentI'm 99% sure it's 'darling don't you be polite' and 'I'm not like all the other boys'

    To me it sounds like Bob is stalking some girl. 'in the shadows where I hide from you', 'the violently alone I feel', and 'I won't take a no' give me that idea. Like maybe he's mentally unstable and after this girl. Or maybe I've been watching too many teenage soap operas...
