The Thorazine Shuffle

Chords: G Em C D

 

Seventeen hours in isolation

Strapped to a bed with leather braces

Plastic sheets leaking urine

Lost my place in this confusion

 

Said to the nurse it’s a violation

Of my rights for sanitation

She shot me up and now I’m found

Pacing staring at the ground

 

Walking, walking back and forth

At the speed of a grandpa’s Ford

Can’t talk now my brain is muffled

I’m just doing the Thorazine Shuffle

With a Whoop! Whoop! Whoop! Whoop!

Woo!

 

Feeling calm and oh so peaceful

Slower Slower my stream of conscience

All five senses like a mule

Holy Crap I’m starting to drool

 

Walking, walking back and forth

At the speed of a grandpa’s Ford

Can’t talk now my brain is muffled

I’m just doing the Thorazine Shuffle

With a Whoop! Whoop! Whoop! Whoop!

Woo!

 

Days go by I cannot think

Would’ve done better with a drink

How can they call this therapy?

This medicinal lobotomy?

 

Walking, walking back and forth

At the speed of a grandpa’s Ford

Can’t talk now my brain is muffled

I’m just doing the Thorazine Shuffle

With a Whoop! Whoop! Whoop! Whoop!

Woo!

 

The doctor says it’s time to leave

Is this really what freedom means?

Got lost leaving, walked right back in

I ain’t never gonna piss off that nurse again!
