Something moves above me--am I coming to?
Are those birds singing? Sunlight coming through?
Who said you could touch me? What's the needle for?
Who gave you permission? Why'd you close the door?

Oh, please, I made a phone call
Standing, standing in the hall

I can't remember faces, but I remember names
Not disturbed by sunlight, don't know which day Icame
Are they speaking English? Why are they so tall?
Shadows moving past me, whispers down the hall

Oh, please, I wrote a letter
Standing, standing all alone

The doctors tell you what love is
The doctors lie

He says I'm your servant, I know what to do
Let's keep it a secret, just between us two
Picture window darkens, all the boats go home
No one's on the river, why can't I go home?

Oh, please, I made a phone call
Standing, standing in the hall

The light's flashing, moving faster down the hall
The light's flashing, the phone's ringing,
Faster faster, past white walls
No dream, I'm not dreaming,
White light ahead of me
Walls move, movin' movin'
Eyes bloody now, I can't see

The doctors tell you what love is (the doctors lie)
The doctors lie (the doctors lie)

(They say that you'll be alright, they say you'll sleep tonight but they lie)
The doctors tell you what love is (the doctors lie)
(They say that you'll be okay, they say you'll sleep today but they lie)
The doctors lie (The doctors lie, oh they lie, they lie, they lie)
