Penelope Scott – American Healthcare (Glitzy) Lyrics

American Healthcare (Glitzy) Lyrics – Penelope Scott

When I was seven years old
I saw a dead man in the road
Outside the liquor store
A few blocks from my school

Well he was cold
And he was warm
He looked the damn same as before
Except for something in the eyes
And a bit of drool

Well people die every day
I wouldn’t have it any other way
I just think they should feel good while they are alive
I went to school I got good grades
I don’t know you want me to say
Tell me fast r ’cause you’re running out of time

I want d to help people
I thought that I could save the sick
And if it’s all the same to you
There’s one more thing I gotta do
Because with god as my witness (with god as my witness!)
You corporate fucking prick (you corporate fucking prick)
I did not become a doctor just to suck the devil’s dick (I did not become a doctor just to suck the devil’s dick!)

I fucking helped people
I did my best to save the sick
God as my witness
I won’t suck the devil’s dick
I won’t

I made it though all four years
And then almost a decade more
I asked the right questions
And never even really got bored

They hired me in my hometown
And then again when I moved away
People liked me back then
What can I say?

Oh I can say
It was the government
The companies, bureaucracy
The congressmen, the lobbyists, and lies
It trickled into both my ears
It got louder over the years
Until all that I could hear were fucking flies

People die every day
I wouldn’t have it any other way
I just think they should feel okay while they’re alive
How could they ever feel okay
When things are more and more this way?
Sometimes it’s like they’d rather die

But I fucking helped people
I tried my best to save the sick
And if it’s all the same to you
There’s one more thing I’ve gotta do
Because with god as my witness
You corporate fucking prick
I did not become a doctor for this

I wanted to help people
I did my best to save the sick
With god as my witness
I did not go to med school for this

I fucking helped people
I did my best to save the sick
With god as my witness
I won’t suck the devil’s dick

I wanted to help people
I did my best to save the sick
With god as my witness
I did not get through med school for this

I wanted to help people
I did my best
