Oberst, Conor - I Don't Want To Die (In The Hospital) Lyrics




I don't want to die in the hospital
I don't want to die in the hospital
I don't want to die in the hospital
You got to take me back outside

I don't want to hear all these factory sounds
Looking like a girl in this sleeping gown
I don't want to die in the hospital
You got to take me back outside

Can you make a sound to distract the nurse
Before I take a ride in that long black hearse
I don't want to die in the hospital
You go to take me back outside

Ah, help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots back on
Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots back on

I go to go, go, go, go
'Cause I don't have long

I don't give a damn what the doctors say
I ain't gonna spend another lonesome day
I don't want to die in the hospital
You go to take me back outside

And they don't let you smoke and you can't get drunk
All there is to watch are these soap operas
I don't want to die in the hospital
You got to take me back outside

Can you get this tube out of my arm?
Morphine in my blood like a slow sad song
I don't want to die in the hospital
You got to take me back outside

Ah, help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots back on
Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots on
Help me get my boots back on

I got to go, go, go
'Cause I don't have long

Is there still a world at my windowsill
All there ever was I remember still
I don't want to die in this hospital
You got to take me back outside

Don't know when it's day or when it's night
All I ever see are florescent lights
I don't want to die in this hospital
You got to take me back outside

They give me all these flowers and these big balloons
But I don't want to stay in this little room
I don't want to die in this hospital
I don't want to die

Are the stars still in the sky?
Is that fat moon on the rise?
Feel the earth's against my feet
As the cold wind calls for me

I don't want to die in this hospital
No, I don't want to die in this hospital
No, I ain't gonna die in this hospital
You got to take me back outside

Yeah, I ain't gonna die in this hospital
No, I ain't gonna die in this hospital
No, I ain't gonna die in this hospital
You're gonna take me back outside
