Frontier Psychiatrist
The Avalanches Lyrics


Is Dexter ill, Is Dexter ill, Is Dexter ill
Is Dexter ill today, Mr Kirk, Dexter's in school
I'm afraid he's not, Miss Fishborne
Dexter's truancy problem is way out of hand
The Baltimore County school board have decided to expel
Dexter from the entire public school system

Oh Mr Kirk, I'm as upset as you to learn of Dexter's truancy
But surely, expulsion is not the answer!
I'm afraid expulsion is the only answer
It's the opinion of the entire staff that Dexter is criminally insane

That boy needs therapy, psychosomatic,
That boy needs therapy, purely psychosomatic
That boy needs therapy
Lie down on the couch! What does that mean?
You're a nut! You're crazy in the coconut!
What does that mean? That boy needs therapy
I'm gonna kill you, that boy needs therapy
Play the kazoo, let's have it tune
On the count of three
That, that, that, that, that boy.. boy needs therapy
He was white as a sheet
And he also made false teeth

Avalanches is above, business continues below
Did I ever tell you the story about
Cowboys! Bit , bit bitches and the indians and, Fron, Frontier Psychiatrist
I, I felt strangely hypnotised
I was in another world, a world of 20.000 girls
And milk! Rectangles, to an optometrist, the man with the golden eyeball
And tighten your buttocks, pour juice on your chin
I promise my girlfriend I'd, the violin, violin, violin

Frontier Psychiatrist
Frontier, frontier, frontier, frontier
Frontier, frontier, frontier, frontier
Frontier, frontier, frontier, frontier

That boy needs therapy, psychosomatic
That boy needs therapy, purely psychosomatic
That boy needs therapy
Lie down on the couch, what does that mean?
You're a nut! You're crazy in the coconut!
What does that mean? That boy needs therapy
I'm gonna kill you, that boy needs therapy
Ranagazoo, let's have a tune
Now when I count three
That, that, that, that, that boy.. boy needs therapy
He was white as a sheet
And he also made false teeth

Frontier Psychiatrist

Can you think of anything else that talks, other than a person?
Uh ohh, uh oh, a bird! Yeah!
Sometimes a parrot talks
Ha ha ha ha ha !!!!
Yes, some birds are funny when they talk
Can you think of anything else
A record, record, record !

Raskolnikov's Ghost

@subtleusername Also I said millions because the lockdowns were expanded upon from there and now the whole country of Australia is in lockdown with military patrolling the streets and questioning people about why they're outside of their homes. I saw one video of police helicopters swarming overhead a beach and telling everyone to go home or they'll be arrested and fined.


But again, we just wanna see people die of covid, right? Even the crazy people aren't actually worried about authoritarian human rights violations, they just wanna see people die of covid? That's what you said, no?


I dunno how you thought you could make claims like that and get away with it while calling me out for being 100,000 people off in my statement about Australia....

You're actually crazier than the Q-Anon kool-aid drinkers. I think you may be delusional.



Raskolnikov's Ghost

@subtleusername You didn't do any research did you? They can't leave their homes other than to go the grocery store. The government decided what businesses were essential.

I was actually going with someone else to get the vaccine together when I got covid. I didn't get it before because my risk is low and I'm in my 20s. Again, you're taking a small portion of conservatives and painting them as the whole. It would be like me saying you must be Antifa or a communist because you're a leftist. Do you not see how dishonest you are? Most conservatives are pro-vaccine and you know it. It's just crazy Q-Anon people on the fringes. Just like you have crazy riotous traitor commies burning down buildings on your fringe.

I even said this is just a compilation video I saw it on, you can look up Australia's lockdown for yourself. I'm not making this shit up.

It's not even relevant at this point. You're not even making any argument other than "All conservatives bad because some are anti-vax"

You have anything to contribute to this debate or are you just gonna sit here and grandstand about how much more moral you are than me? This is why I started this whole conversation. You people are so hateful, it just permeates your every word. I hope you find some peace, man.
