The Lyrics

My older sister was a registered nurse. This one hits home..
nice girls, heard one was a prefect
intra vein, clean crap, that's correct
write blogs under illegal pegs
they look so good even the dead ones beg..

they are watchin for infections,
they're astute
they are watching for infections
a needle shoot shoot shoot shoot
they fill me up until the white count starts
to fall and then they massage my heart..

one's got flesh eating rash this time
another has severed cords in spine
one has boogers running down his nose
buzzes the station, wants his pain site froze
she snaps right at yo, and you pray she won't forget
narcotic druge the doctor says you will get
you don't know how much more of this they can take
they're slicing their own wrists when they're on break..

they are watchin for infections,
they're astute
they are watching for infections
a needle shoot shoot shoot shoot
they fill me up until the white count starts
to fall and then they massage my heart..

need marrow replaced for some bone grafts they begin it
your mom is here to stay she came for a visit
they say it is malpractice if they go past the limit
feed you oxygen a code red, I wonder whose is it?
the doctors come to tell of you to the grieving parents
who are ready to hear the worst about their little boys thesis
though it nearly took a miracle to last through the day
it only took a little needle to blow you away..

they are watchin for infections,
they're astute
they are watching for infections
a needle shoot shoot shoot shoot
they fill me up until the white count starts
to fall and then they massage my heart..

Watching for infections
they just like watching for infections
Watching the detectives
Watching for infections

I little dark, but not bad. I think I might have appreciated it more had it gone the humorous infection route like IB's submission today.
