Like a jew in ancient Spain
And for Christ's name did pay with pain
Modern day inquisition
What is the link between these cafts?
Doctors and thieves, they both
wear masks
Overpaid meat magicians

Life is killing me

You doctorate and P.h.D.
Would wipe ass etched in fesces
Will not cure you affliction
Doctors Jeckyll and Mengele
And your face too, they're just a blur
Can't prove my condition

Life is killing me

Appointment made, waited three hours
Did not realize you had such power
I'd rather see a mortician
Your parents saved or had the bucks
Your education stems from luck
A Red Cross from hell? - the hospital!

Just let me die with dignity
It's not suicide, simply mercy

Just who do you think you are?
Medical school don't make you God
Now I don't care what you've been taught
Just get me off this life support

Just let me die with dignity
It's not suicide, simply mercy

Life is killing me

    General CommentObviously about someone on life support and who doesnt want to live like a veggie. He rather die with his dignity then being kept alive only by a machine. He has no chance of living... and is pissed at the doctors getting paid the big bucks for simply prolonging his unavoidable death.

    General CommentRight on the nose. And I think it's interesting how he compares it to Jews and the Spanish Inquisition. He mentions Dr. Jekyll as wall as Mengele. Very few people know that Mengele was the Nazi doctor/scientist who did horrible experiements on the Jews during the Holocaust. Sorry about my tangent there, just a bit of history to tie it up with...
