(Anaesthetist)
(Anaesthetist)

Doctor, fetch the Anaesthetist (Anaesthetist)
Fetch the Anaesthetist, so when I go under the knife I believe in this
Fetch the Anaesthetist (Anaesthetist)
Fetch the Anaesthetist, so when I go under the knife I believe

You fucking spanner
Just a cog in the industry, you're part blind
You shared your blood from the convicted
You parasite!
You play god and you don't care who it affects
You suck the blood of the afflicted
You suck the blood of the afflicted

Illness is not an indulgence which you should pay for
Nor is it a crime for which you should be punished
For this conviction I would endanger my health
Shut it! Oi!
Just 'cause you break bridges and lust for fame
No you won't see us participating in that game
Keep it twisted, take the success
'Cause all I really want is what's beating in your chest

Doctor, fetch the Anaesthetist (Anaesthetist)
Fetch the Anaesthetist, so when I go under the knife I believe in this
Fetch the Anaesthetist (Anaesthetist)
Fetch the Anaesthetist, so when I go under the knife I believe

We drink to your health
But just one thought
This round's on you
And every day you roll the dice
We drink to your health
We capitalise on your condition
Bad luck, you pay the price
Bad luck
You pay the price

Fetch the Anaesthetist
(Anaesthetist)
Fetch the Anaesthetist
I wanna go under the knife I believe in this

You sold us short
You will not profit off our health
Step the fuck back

    Song MeaningPretty self-explanatory song. It's about the corruption of the medical industry and how they profit off of people's sickness.

    My InterpretationAh I love this, it's so clever and catchy, and absolutely sick live.

    I'd say it's a criticism of the current UK government. I follow the singer on Twitter and he makes his political views quite clear :)

    Liked Shikari since I was 12 but I'm into them so much more now - I really appreciate the intelligence and themes in the lyrics. Gotta see them live again.
