Mr. Ambulance Driver
The Flaming Lips Lyrics


Waitin' for the ambulance to come
Hopin' that it doesn't come too late
Hearin' the sirens in the distance
Hold on help is on the way

Mister Ambulance Driver I'm right here beside her
And though I'll live somehow I've found
Mister Ambulance Driver I'm not a real survivor
'Cause I'm wishing that I was the one that
Wasn't gonna be here anymore
The one that wasn't here anymore
The one that wasn't here anymore

Oh we can't trade places
Our lives are strangely our own
Mister Ambulance Driver tell me
For everyone that dies, someone new is born

Mister Ambulance Driver I'm right here beside her
And though I'll live somehow I've found
Mister Ambulance Driver I'm not a real survivor
'Cause I'm wishing that I was the one that
Wasn't gonna be here anymore

Mister Ambulance Driver I'm right here beside her
And though I'll live somehow I've found
Mister Ambulance Driver I'm not a real survivor
'Cause I'm wishing that I was the one that
Wasn't gonna be here anymore
The one that isn't here anymore
The one that isn't here anymore

I first heard this song playing on shuffle after I downloaded a few FL albums. It actually made me cry. I wasn't sad or anything, but before I knew it my eyes were tearing up. Whatever was going on, it felt good to just let some of my lesser-used emotions run free! Finding one song that let's you do that is worth listening to 1,000 that don't.

I fell asleep listening through Yoshimi Battles the pink robots and woke up 5 minutes before my alarm was about to go off when this song came on. It was like an out of body experience with so many emotions. It honestly has put me in a weird mood this whole month. I get chills whenever I listen to that first minute...
