Here I lie in my hospital bed
Tell me, Sister Morphine, when are ya coming round again?
Oh, And I don't think I can wait that long
Oh, you see that I'm not that strong
The scream of the ambulance is sounding in my ears
Tell me, Sister Morphine, how long have I been lying here?
What am I doing in this place?
Why does the doctor have no face?
I'll tell you
Umm, I can't crawl across the floor
Can't you see, Sister Morphine
I'm just trying to score
Well, it just goes to show things are not what they seem
Tell me, Sister Morphine, can my nightmares turn into dreams?
Oh, can't you see I'm fading fast
And that this shot will be my last
Please, Cousin Cocaine, lay your cool hand on my head
Tell me Sister Morphine, will you make up my bed?
'Cause you know and I know in the morning, I'll be dead
And you can sit around, and you can watch
All the clean white sheets stained red
Come on now
