Metric - Monster Hospital Lyrics

Monster hospital, can you please release me?
You hold my hands down, I've been bad.
You hold my arms down, I've been bad.
I've been bad, I've been bad.

I fought the war but the war won

Monster movie, Daddy Warbucks up against Bobby Fuller
And he beat him hands down
Lead in the head
Put a little lead in his head.

I fought the war but the war won't stop for the love of god.
I fought the war but the war won

  43. Robert Mcclintock

    It's about Jamestown state hospital in nd @spyit_ground

  44. DoitForTheLolz1

    So it took Vevo just 3 years to upload the music video (2009) but it took the actual record company 6 years (published on 2012) amazing.

  45. Clinton Leonard

    Scott Pilgrim is how I discovered this awesome band.

    Ben Smith

    Clinton Leonard , lol, I used to buy drugs from a guy called Scott Pilgrim.

    Laela Overmoyer

    @Ben Smith you just made that movie 10x more amusing for me now, thanks for that 😆


    I discovered this song while searching for another artist but I misspelled their name and came across this

  46. Paladinfox

    I'm not the only one who thinks Metric is boring, right?


    Paladinfox So if you think they're boring, what the fuck were you doing here?


    Fucking crazy. I was in college when this was out. fuck me sideways

  48. Elaine Komis

    Hotel or Hospital? 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  49. w d

    Just saw stranger things. I think it is uncanny how similar Emily Haines and Winona Ryder look in combination with the wall-effect at 0:52. Wonderful show, wonderful band. probably no connection. haha

  50. Mark Birnage

    Fantastic song heard this for the 1st time today while running ;-)

  51. Ryan Carter

    What a song!!

  52. R. Michael Duttera

    I love that Babylon is on her many understand he wonders...

  53. John Davies

    I fought the war... I fought the war but the war won - stop, for the love of God!... <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

    Robert Caple

    The lyric is actually, "I fought the ward", but I've always liked it better as "war".


    actually it is war.

    John Davies

    OMG! When did it start? With Russia, China, North Korea, who?


    @Robert Caple i like your interpretation. :)

    Robert Caple

    @Tori Thanks! With a song called "Monster Hospital", and "please release me..." etc., I though "ward" made more sense. That, and somewhere at some point I read (or watched, can't remember. Would have been around 2006) that she wrote and recorded the lyric as "ward", but liked it as "war" also after seeing it transcribed incorrectly so many places. For all I know, she sings it as "war" now, seeing as the forever war seems to be a permanent fixture of US foreign policy now.

    Fun fact: the band is from Toronto, and the members are all very active in Canadian alt. rock, however the core group are all US nationals who all moved to Canada.

  54. Mohi212

    Stop, for the love of that line.

  55. Jess in king

    holy fuck how am i just seeing this now even though i listened to this album on repeat since 2012? this is amazing and i relate to this so much!

  56. coreselene

    metric is so underrated ;_;

  59. jason kinzie

  60. Doom Guy


  61. Bill Taylor

    I fought the law, and 
    the law won

    no one els? really?


    These people trying to correct to war lol
    Guessing either they don't understand or are trying to say its completely unrelated
    But yes I thought this when the song first came out. When I first heard it all I could think was how much it sounded like a slight twist on the lyrics from the clash.

    Ken Feldman

    EstharFalcus, here's the actual lyrics:
    Monster hospital, can you please release me?
    You hold my hands down, I've been bad.
    You hold my arms down, I've been bad.
    I've been bad, I've been bad.

    I fought the war but the war won

    Monster movie, Daddy Warbucks up against Bobby Fuller
    And he beat him hands down
    Lead in the head
    Put a little lead in his head.

    I fought the war but the war won't stop for the love of god.
    I fought the war but the war won


    Ken Feldman, yes, they are the lyrics for this song. A song which has a very obvious reference to another song which is what we are talking about here (the reference being to The Clash's song "I Fought the Law")
    You don't need to post the lyrics for this song as it does not show anything about this song not being a reference to The Clash, which a lot of people picked up on.

    Ken Feldman

    From your post I thought your comment "These people trying to correct to war lol" was that people misinterpreted the word "war" and actually it was "law", hence my posting of the lyrics.

    Side note, Bobby Fuller did a cover version of "I Fought the Law" in 1966, and he is referenced in the Metric lyrics "Monster movie, Daddy Warbucks up against Bobby Fuller". Originally recorded by the Crickets in 1960 but it never went anywhere. The Clash did their version in 1979.

    Luis Reliquias

    I fought the war but the war won't stop for the love of god!

  62. ThereIsNoDog96

    That scream at the beginning sounds like the girlfriend in Stan by Eminem.

    Cisco López

    Is just an sound effect, anyone can use it, and i recall that song too :D

    Obvious Bambi

    @ThereIsNoDog96 Glad I'm not the only one who's noticed that.

  63. Scott McHenry

    They fought the war 32 times.  Yes, I counted.

  64. Простой Золотой

    Там своими руками рот закрыла

  65. Darío Escobedo

    I can't stop listening to this.

  66. Traxx5363

    Prefere la remix faite pour la ps4 

  67. Gameswindows

    i prefer version "Metric - Monster Hospital (MSTRKRFT Remix)"

    Ben Smith

    Gameswindows both are good.

    Michael Richter

  68. Mike Poitras
