The Patient

lyrics

They painted blue skies on the wall
To distract from what was going on
While administering anesthesia unto me
They waited patiently until
Both my blinking eyes were still
Then they did what they had gone to school for fifteen years to do

And I was grateful that they knew the things they know
But I've yet to understand
What puts this life into a soul

I left that room with one less appendix
Than I had when I entered in it
I was glad I didn't need it anyway
And when my friends came by to visit
They knew this was far from serious
But they also knew it's good to feel at home

And I was grateful that they knew the things they know
But I've yet to understand
What puts this life into a soul

All one could want is to be breathing in the air
To believe in how it's there
To be certain something's right
Am I right
Am I right
Am I right?

I was grateful that they knew the things they know
But I've yet to understand
What puts this life into a soul
I was sure grateful that they knew the things they know
But I have not yet discerned
What turned the light on in my soul
