lyrics

In the Brooklyn Psychiatric Ward
Plastic Jello cups and shuffleboard
The hospital’s such a scary place
But you’ve got such a kind face
In the Brooklyn Psychiatric Ward

In the looney bin, it’s so good to have a friend
Me and Daisy can go on talking for hours on end
I get so confused sometimes
I’m missing puzzle pieces in my mind
In the looney bin, it’s so good to have a friend

But the doctors say that you’re not real
It’s just a symptom of my condition that makes you appear
That medication can ease the strain of the neurons firing in my brain
But I was hoping that you wouldn’t disappear

Cause I’d hung my dreams out to dry
With the other patients’ clothes upon the line
I left a breadcrumb trail to find
The man I was but I left behind
I’d hung my dreams out to dry

They’ve been pumping me full of Thorazine
Hell, Daisy you’re the only good thing to happen to me
Now the visiting hours are through
And I ain’t seen hide nor hair of you
They’ve been pumping me full of Thorazine

(Chorus)

The doctor says they’ll let me out real soon
They lined me up a job in a Jersey tollbooth
I ain’t seen you in a while
God, I wish you could see me now
So I’m gonna flush the pills once they send me home
I’m gonna flush the pills, Daisy, I’ll see you soon
