The Lyrics

My glands are swollen
Bigger than stones
Doesn't feel good
The pain that I have gone through
This container of pills
Oh no I'm burning up
Could throw up

That's me at the doctor
Sitting in his office
Popping penicillin
Trying to keep it down
And I don't know if I can take it
Oh no I took too much
Or did I take enough
I think that he heard me coughing
I'm sure that he heard me scream
I think I heard him say I'll die

Every minute
Of every barfing moment
I'm choosing medications
Trying to feel a bit better
And I'm looking at this empty bottle
Now I took too much
I took it all

Consider this
Visit to the office
To be my last
Blast! Can I make it past
What if all these symptoms come back
Next Thursday night
Cuz I took too much
I know that he heard me coughing
I hope that he heard me scream
I feel as though I'm gonna die

Now I'm gonna scream
I am going to scream

That's me at the doctor
Sitting in his office
Popping penicillin
Trying to keep it down
And I don't know if I can take it
Now can I take too much
Or can I take enough
Now he can't hear me coughing
He can't even hear me scream
I know that I am going to die

Cuz he can't hear me scream
Why cry I'll die
He can't hear me scream
Hear me scream
Hear me scream, scream
