Send a Medic

by Jason Mendelson



Featuring the warm embrace of a vintage Roland CR-78 drum machine. What could be finer? Nothing, that's what could be finer. Nothing. Oh, go watch the music video too, please. It's pretty neat and took a long time to make, so I'd appreciate it muchly if you did that.


Please send a medic for the man downstairs
I don't know him well but I'm a little scared
Something may have happened, it's quieter than normal for him
I'm trying to remember the last I saw him down at the gym

Please send a medic for the girl next door
She has been missing for a week or more
I should have told her that I loved her so
Why does my heart crawl down inside a hole
What am I afraid of, living my whole life in the past
Blink and then it's over, surrounded by the junk I've amassed
The more I think about it, the less I think that I'm gonna last

Walking the streets of my town
No one is to be found
Try to get you on the phone
There's only a dial tone

These days I wonder if I'm locked inside
No one ever calls and maybe that's not right
I used to think that all I had was time
Wake up and I know it, I'm the one who really was lost
Wandering in circles my only companions are thoughts

Please send a medic to my home address
I might have failed, at least I tried my best
Trying to remember the last time I looked up at the stars
But everything is foggy, noisy, crowded, smoky old bars
The more I think about it, the less I think I took it too far
