The Lyrics

This was staged for a pardoy show with the following characters: Sick Patient (SP), Dr. Kevorkian (Dr. K), Pro-assisted suicide group (pro), and Anti-assisted suicide group (anti)... Parenthetical remarks are staging or singer at that point. Basically it transitioned from sick kid in hospital to the kid strapping up to Kevorkians contraption to protestors from both sides picketing to the kid trying to escape it all and dying on his own... not nearly as light hearted as watching Wayne and Garth do it.
(All)
Is this still real life
Or is it cruelty
Caught in a landslide
Of political policy

(SP to doctors)
Open your eyes
Look up from your charts and see
I'm just a poor boy, in need of empathy
Because life's easy come, easy go
Here today, then no more
Any way the law goes, doesn't really matter to me
To me.

(Dr. K to a judge)
Your Honor
I didn't kill the man
I put the mask against his head
He turned the valve now he's dead
Your Honor
This was his own doing
So just aquit me now and we can all go home
Your Honor Oooo--
I don't believe I broke the law
And if I'm still free this time tommorrow
I'll carry on, carry on
Cuz my work really matters.

(SP)
Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
This assisted suicide
Goodbye everybody, I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mamma Oooo---
I don't want to die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

(Pro)
I know a shriveled little wrinkle of a man
Doctor K, Doctor K, will you do this man under?

(SP)
Carbon and monoxide, very very frigtening me


(Pro)
Kevorkian, Kevorkian
Kevorkian, Kevorkian
Kevorkian, (Dr. K) I come to you!
Magnifico-o-o-o!!!

(SP)
But I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me

(Pro)
He's just a poor boy with a poor prognosis
Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Easy now, soon you'll go, soon we'll help you go

(Pro vs Anti groups)
Euthanize!
No! We will not let him go.
Let him go!
Euthanize!
No! We will not let him go.
Let him go!
Euthanize!
No! We will not let him go.
Let him go!
We will not let him go.
Let him go!
We will not let him go.
Let him go!
No!
Yes!
No!
Yes!
No!
Yes!
No!

(SP)
Mama Mia! Mama Mia! I think I'm going on my own.
Politics is a thorn in the side for me
For me
For meeeeee...
(to anti group) So you think you can love me as I sit here and writhe?
(to pro group) So you think you can love me and help me to die?
Oh baby!
Can't do this to me baby!
Just gotta get out
Just gotta get right out of here
It doesn't really matter
All of you should see
It doesn't really matter, nothing really matters, to me.

(All)
Anyway the law goes

I see no one has touched on this topic yet, such a shame. Great pacing, too serious for triple 5s though. 545. One question: Wasn't Kevorkians' device a 3 stage lethal injection design, not a CO mask?
