Do not lie quietly on the patient bed
It is not wise to let them see you weep
You should be strong long past when you're dry-bled

If it's not clear, it is all in your head
It's fair to say that most problems will keep
Do not lie quietly on the patient bed

An ambulance most wastefully was sped
You should have known that what you sow you reap -
You should be strong long past when you're dry-bled

There is no-one to listen, no-one has said
The woman on the bed is not a sheep
Do not lie quietly on the patient bed

The weaker and more frail you fade to red
The more they do things to you in your sleep
You should be strong long past when you're dry-bled

If it is not to be "all in your head"
If they are going to listen when you weep
Do not lie quietly on the patient bed
You should be strong long past when you're dry-bled

Wow. This reminds me of "Do not go gentle into that good night." Amazingly powerful.
