lyrics

There must be something I can take
To help me bend before I break
Doctor, take your needle, isn't that what you're for?
I'll lie still; just promise me no more

I want to walk through that front door
And see his books lined up once more
Oh my bold Cervantes, I am lost!

The world is full of blame, 'cos there's a cost
To living with the bones under your skin

Dust and ashes, bury him deep
And do not wait as he sleeps – he won't rise
So don't stay by his side
Peace; and nothing now but the clay
And memories of the days
Sitting at home
Standing by the fire
waiting for the end

Oh Doctor, Doctor please be kind
Silence my rage and numb my mind
Stop their pious praying, get it out of my face
And let him go; et him go
