Bloodletting

Infection is the first phase, always is
Speculation, Estimation: what is this?
Suggestive list of symptoms – numbers game
Doctors seeking grants, awards and fame

Bloodletting – till the subject’s almost gone
Waivers signed and the tests go on and on
Analyze – find out everything you can
Fortune paid – you forget this was once a man

Chorus
Look into my eyes and see that life remains
Can’t you see my hopes and dreams have been sustained?
Or do you only see my physical decay?
Write me off as lost, turn and walk away

Continuation – keep with the business plan
Consultation – milk the family for all you can
Why find out in a test what you can in five?
Sustain your cash flow- repeat the question “why?”

Amputation – cut the limbs away
Not that he would ever need them anyway
It hurts your figures every time a subject dies
Double sedation – never dead but never alive

Look into my eyes and see that life remains
Can’t you see my hopes and dreams have been sustained?
Or do you only see my physical decay?
Write me off as lost, turn and walk away

Things in life we can’t foresee, turn to you for answers
The devil’s breath; hypocrisy, treated like a cancer

Make some room, there are others on the way
Tucked away, letting life deteriorate
He’ll be fine, isolated and alone
All the while paying off your student loans

Life is not yours to judge like some childish game
You took an oath then you cast aside your shame
At what point does a life become meaningless?
You stay content as long as you’re cashing checks

Look into my eyes and see that life remains
Can’t you see my hopes and dreams have been sustained?
Or do you only see my physical decay?
Write me off as lost, turn and walk away
