Turn me off
Pull the plug
Leave me with some dignity
I am not
What I was
And I don't need the sympathy

Alive inside me
No one can hear me

Brain dead
I'm not
Brain dead

In my shell
Enduring every
Endless day

On my back
Aware of everything
They say

Extricate me
Eliminate me

Brain dead
I'm not
Brain dead
Drip fed

I can't blink my eye or cry
Or even speak
They crowd around my bed
Condescending words are said
Thinking I don't hear or know
What is going on?
Can't you suckers hear my cries
From inside? I'm still alive
It's my decision to abort
Turn off the goddamn life support

Let me pass
From this world
So I fade away in peace


Brain dead
I'm not
Brain dead

Brain dead
I'm not
Brain dead
Drip fed

    My InterpretationThis song seems to be about someone who is injured in a car accident (the screeching of brakes/crashing/ambulance sirens at the beginning of the track supports this.) They are pronounced brain dead, but they are actually conscious and want to be put of their misery.
