Health and Deficiency: Love's Septic Domain

Coil


Astral archaeologists
Electronics take a shit
Gynaecologists
Very wellbeing their living
(...???...)
Sterilise, cauterise, and dress
By confessions in a stainless steel chair
Or a titanium chair
Or a lithium...
A shiny metal chair; do you want that?
My favourite person is ??? [visits me?]
(Be on your best behaviour) Yeah, I know! Yeah, I know!
Dirty hospitals, dirty hospitals
Dirty hospitals, dirty hospitals
It's a terrorist's briefcase or an innocent's bomb
This place is run, it's overrun
...???...

Now I'm alone, and I have time to kill
I sit and stare at my long, long fingers
Ten inches is a monstrous size
It doesn't do to glamourise
There are rules and there are regulations

Be on your best behaviour
Yeah, I know
Yeah, I know
Yeah, I know!

Dirty hospitals
Dirty hospitals, hospitals
It's overrun by medical [regime?]
And I have hypnotists and anaesthetists
It's struck dumb by vitamin deficiency
Its medicine has terrorism ...???
Empty coagulates again, sugar shit and chloroforms
(I have patience
I like to have a hands-on approach to things)
Twenty-seven pills before 9 a.m. in the morning
(Yellow, brown)
Then another thirty-five by nine in the evening
(And occasionally red)
Three intravenous intrajections
(I've used this before)
One in the thigh, two in the eye
One in the thigh, two in the eye
(I'd like to try it again)
One in the thigh, two in the eye
(But I'm confused between sexual, murder, magic, and medical
Is the difference metric or imperial?
Septic, fertile, furtive, or sterile?)
I take twenty-seven pills before 9 a.m. in the morning
Another thirty-five by nine in the evening
I have three intravenous intrajections a day
One in the thigh, two in the eye
One in the thigh, two in the eye... eye!
I've got two thighs and two eyes
One in the thigh, and two in the eye
These dirty hospitals, these dirty hospitals!
These dirty heeeeahspitals!
I have twenty-seven pills before 9 a.m. in the morning
