Tea and Thorazine
Andrew Bird Lyrics


Well, I can tell by the way you take your infusion
You've spent some time in a mental institution
What a dream, life would seem if only
They let you keep your etch-a-sketch

Eh, you laugh like a banshee, gesticulate your delirium
They treat you like a corpse, keep you full of candy lithium
What a dream life would seem if only you could see
The world from inside an etch-a-sketch
I can tell by the way you reach your conclusions
You're the director of a mental institution
What a dream, life would seem if only
It hadn't been for Doctor be

Animate yourself an alternate reality
Consummate a self pleasing artificiality
You can have yourself a tea

I can tell by the way you take your infusion
You've spent some time in a mental institution
Oh, what a dream life would seem if only you could see
The world from inside an etch-a-sketch

Chorus 1: Andrew Bird]
I can tell by the way you take your infusion
You've spent some time in a mental institution
Oh, what a dream life would seem if only
They'd let you keep your Etch-A-Sketch

[Verse 1]
Oh, you laugh like a banshee, gesticulate your delirium
They treat you like a corpse, keep you full of candy lithium
What a dream life would seem if only you could see
The world from inside an Etch-A-Sketch

[Chorus 2]
I can tell by the way you reach your conclusions
You're the director of a mental institution
Oh what a dream life would seem if only
It hadn't been for Doctor B

[Verse 2]
Animate yourself an alternate reality
Consummate a self-pleasing artificiality
You can have yourself to tea

[Chorus 1]
I can tell by the way you take your infusion
You've spent some time in a mental institution
Oh, what a dream life would seem if only could see
The world from inside an Etch-A-Sketch

When I went to the psych hospital we didnt get etch a sketches and I feel ripped off now

Kevin Owen Burress

this song was written about his autistic brother that was placed in a mental hospital and forced to take drugs for various conditions and how they wouldn't give him his etch a sketch.
