The Angry Sore
There’s An Angry Sore In The Pit Of My Tum

Size Of The Of The Nail Upon My Thumb

It’s A Violent Red I Lay On The Bed And Watch

The Screen From My Left Side As They Quickly Try To Hide It

Take My Blood And An Ecg, Chest X-Ray And A Cup Of Pee As I Join The Ranks Of

The Living Dead I’m A Tickin’ Time Bomb In This Hospital Bed

I’m A Shut In Who Cant Shut It Out Of My Head.

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

And My Ass Is Falling Out Of This Hospital Gown

And I Can’t Fall Asleep Without Being Put Down

No I Can’t Come Out And Play, Doctor Told Me Not Today.

She Said I’m Overwhelmed And Under The Weather Can’t We Pick A

Distant Time When We Can Get Together When I’m

Overwhelmed And At A Disadvantage I Drop The C-Bomb,

Watch It Do The Damage. Oh Oh Oh Oh, Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

No I Can’t Run Out And Play, Doctor Said It’s Not Ok

She Said Those Publice Places Stay Away From Them.

And Those Shaking Hands, Kissing Lips

Wash Your Finger Tips And Up Past The Wrist

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

And My Ass Is Falling Out Of This Hospital Gown. And I Can Not

Fall Asleep Without Being Put Down, No I Can Not Fall Asleep

Without Being, Being Put Down With Out Being, Being Put Down Put Down.
