Antlers, The - Kettering Lyrics

I wish that I had known in that first minute we met, the unpayable debt that I owed you.
'Cause you'd been abused by that bone that refused you, and you hired me to make up for that.

Walking in that room when you had tubes in your arms, those singing morphine alarms out of tune.
They kept you sleeping and even, and I didn't believe them when they called you a hurricane thunderclap.

When I was checking vitals I suggested a smile. You didn't talk for awhile, you were freezing.
You said you hated my tone, it made you feel so alone, and so you told me I ought to be leaving.

But something kept me standing by that hospital bed, I should have quit but instead I took care of you.
You made me sleep all uneven, and I didn't believe them when they told me that there was no saving you.

    Two years ago, I watched my grandfather lose his battle to cancer.

    The image of him laying in the hospice room will forever be engraved into my mind. The man that once had a fire that burned in him brighter than the one around him lost.

    His wife- my grandmother died of a broken heart. She had cancer as well, and she died like a carbon copy of him. I grew to know the DMC very well.

    Watching my grandparents die, take their last breath was traumatizing as a young child. But I believe it also shaped me into who I am today.

    This song will always mean so many things to me. Of course that hospice room on the fifth floor is the most important one but so many other things in my life are represented by this song.

    Thanks to the one who broke my heart for showing me this song, it’s one of the few good things you gave me.

  15. timeobserver2013

    Back when FTWD was still good.

  16. Spork

    I came here bc I was listening to Putting the Dog to Sleep on repeat, but I'm surprised to see The 100 and I didn't recognize the song from it. What scene of The 100 is this in?



  18. David Farley

    Fear The Walking Dead Season 1 Finale brought me here

  19. susan susancruz7578

    I had cancer since i was 16 i met a boy my senior year...he was the sweetest i begged him to leave and not love me. At the time i refused chemo i just felt life was done with me and there was no point in stopping it since it kept coming back after every surgery. He and i fell in love and i threw myself into getting chemo because he made the world seem a bit brighter. He'd stay in the hospital every round i had and was there when I'd come home. Loved me when my hair was falling. Loved me and stayed in my hardest moments where even my own family couldnt stay. I am in remission and he is still by my side.:)

    Dániel Péter

    It is so rare right now, i wish good luck both of you l.:)

  20. Fuat Serdar ATEŞ

  21. Sl33pyBear

    My dog died today. She had a heart disease passed from her father.
    This song can relate to me on a personal level, it hurts...


    Shit happens. Sorry.


    @Pinkmaroon yeah, I'm doing better now. I understand that I couldn't do anything to stop it. But uh, thx


    @Sl33pyBear that's great! You'll be fine.

  22. Jeff Jeff

    That exact scene from sense 8 when the DJ listens to this song before getting into some deep sh*t

  23. jessdoritowhale

    Everything in this song, the lyrics, the music, its every emotion you will ever see when you see someone infront of you dieing of cancer or any sickness. The quite before the storm, when the music blares is what goes on your mind when they finnial pass, chaotic and insane.

  24. Aesthetically Pleasing

    Thanks warren 2.0 for introducing this to me

    Lost everything in my life that I held dear and near and close to my heart it didn't matter how much I cared or tried to hold on in the end there is no stop what cant be stopped life is cruel in so many ways but all I have is the bitterness of my memoirs of what use to be to hunt me as I wait to for death


    God is your only option. Pray to him.

  29. Bong Salvador

    'Cause you'd been abused by that bone that refused you...' Damn, is there a more poetically depressing way of describing bone cancer?

  46. R. Sebastián Vásquez

    I'm at the hospital, checking out for my mom at the oncology pavilion, and listening to this is haunting.

  47. cowboy dan

    Hospice tells the story of a relationship between a hospice worker and a female patient suffering from terminal bone cancer, their ensuing romance, and their slow downward spiral as a result of the woman's traumas, fears, and disease as a metaphor for an abusive relationship. Frontman Peter Silberman has been reluctant to divulge explicit details regarding the meaning of the record, and the extent to which it is autobiographical. Silberman has described it as the story of an emotionally abusive relationship.

  56. Balrog 1999

    Serious question, but is there a more popular cover of this song somewhere I might have heard it, disregarding the tv shows? I know I listened to this a few years ago but the memory of the song seems deeper than that

  57. Nawar Harou


    I wish that I had known in that first minute we met
    The unpayable debt that I owed you
    Because you'd been abused by the bone that refused you
    And you hired me to make up for that
    Walking in that room when you had tubes in your arms
    Those singing morphine alarms out of tune kept you sleeping and even
    And I didn't believe them when they called you a hurricane thunderclap

    When I was checking vitals I suggested a smile
    You didn't talk for a while, you were freezing
    You said you hated my tone, it made you feel so alone
    And so you told me I ought to be leaving
    But something kept me standing by that hospital bed
    I should have quit, but instead I took care of you
    You made me sleep and uneven
    And I didn't believe them when they told me that there was no saving you

  60. Angela Comeaux

    I don't know why I am drawn to really dark, and sometimes downright depressing music. Maybe it's because I'm a masochist, or maybe it's because real life sometimes is heartbreaking. Maybe the music expresses all the things that I can't. Maybe it's because it helps me work through the pain of being alive. .
    This entire album is a masterpiece. This song is about a nurse caring for an abusive patient. Many say it is about the singer and his wife (the entire album). Its also a perfect metaphor for my relationship with my mother. After all, addiction is like cancer, right? When it comes up on my pandora/ YouTube playlist I can't help but listen on repeat. Maybe the fact that I can't save her will eventually sink in.

  61. Micah Mansueto

    Why did the show Chuck have to end😭

  62. jason desmond

    the 100 brought me here !

  63. Sydney Pettitt

    Huh.. I live in a town called Kettering, how odd

  64. Alexandria Williams

    You're really gonna put some peppy, perky, happy ad up before a song about watching your loved ones die?

  65. Tereza Cristina

    The 100 💔

  66. demifolk

    I honestly think the cancer was also a metaphor for a toxic relationship. Just my thoughts and interpretation. Listened to this all the time and now that I’ve actually just got out of a toxic relationship, these songs are hitting harder. Strange that when I stopped listening to these songs is when i met her.

  67. BandiKay

    the best out of the best. my fav song from my whole lifetime. have been listening it since 2015 and never got tired. thank you.

    I wish that I had known in
    That first minute we met
    The unpayable debt
    That I owed you

    Because you'd been abused
    By the bone that refused you
    And you hired me
    To make up for that

    Walking in that room
    when you had tubes in your arms,
    those singing morphine alarms
    out of tune

    They had you sleeping and eating
    And I didn't believe them
    When they called you
    A hurricane thundercloud

    When I was checking vitals
    I suggested a smile
    You didn't talk for a while
    You were freezing

    You said you hated my tone
    It made you feel so alone
    So you told me
    I had to be leaving

    But something kept me standing
    By that hospital bed
    I should have quit but instead
    I took care of you

    You made me sleep all uneven
    And I didn't believe them
    When they told me that there
    Was no saving you
