The Lyrics

With Special thanks to "Flash" for help on this one!
Last night in soccer I got creamed
It hurt so bad I had to scream!
I landed hard at someone's feet
Got drop-kicked, right in the teeth

Now did you see the bruise today?
They say the swelling goes away
But I can't bend my elbow; it's too tight
Hurting, all through the night

Too many bumps...
Too many bruises...
Causing redness and swelling
And not much ice to go round
Can't you see
This is the Land of Contusion?

Now this is our staff phy-si-cian.
And these are the drugs you're giv-en
Bruises will then stop show-ing
Just keep that ice all ov-er you

Insurance claims, where are you now?
When surgery's gone wrong somehow
The men in suits are gaining power
While I lose blood by the hour

This is the cut, this is real deep
So we look for a suture
But there's not much thread to go round
Tell me why this is the land of contusion?

Now this is our staff phy-si-cian.
And these are the drugs you're giv-en
Bruises will then stop show-ing
Just keep that ice all ov-er you

I remember long ago
Oh when I had a shiner
And the bag of ice, felt very nice
And the touch of the plastic, as I held it tight
So long ago

I think I broke my leg tonight
They say the surgeon will set it right
They're not just making flimsy casts
That they know will never keep

Too many bumps...
Too many bruises...
Causing redness and swelling
And not much ice to go round
Can't you see
This is the Land of Contusion?

Now this is our staff phy-si-cian.
And these are the drugs you're giv-en
Bruises will then stop show-ing
Just keep that ice all ov-er you
