The Lyrics

What life is this, lay me to rest
My brain, they say, is sleeping
The lawyers meet, the folks compete
Are they my interests keeping?

This, this, is life denied
And dignity is cast aside
haste, haste, to give me peace
I am the one called Terri

I've been this way for 15 years
My parents come to see me
Because I had no living will
The courts, they will not free me

No, I don't need to starve!
Cause that is wrong and that is hard
There's a way that's so humane....
What will you do for Terri?

What life is this, you try to guess
Persistent vegetation
The lawyers meet, the courts compete
Are they my interests keeping?

Raise, raise, the standards high
A person has a right to die
But quickly, and without pain
Why do they torture Terri?
