These lyrics are actually something I was thinking of putting in a little musical I want to write someday. It's about a man in an insane asylum, who checked himself in years ago for suicidal tendencies, but is now being kept there against his will, and has been conditioned to believe that he is a killer for the purpose of research. This particular song would be the opening, and it is more or less about his desire to get well so that he can leave the place, and function again in society. There is no audio file here, so just come up with a tune in your head until I figure something out. Anyway, enjoy:)

Kill To Be Better

I would kill to better,

yes, I would kill to be free,

I'll take my pills and bow to your will if it means one day I can leave,

I would love to be normal,

to rid myself of sick thoughts,

but I can't deny my rage inside so until I am better here I rot,

I so hate to be stuck here,

with your pills and electric shocks,

oh tell me please that I can be free tell me I'm healthy doc!

I refuse to give in here,

I refuse to fall flat,

I will fight to my death without a moment's rest while you sit on your ass round and fat,

I sing with a choir of madness,

I speak with hate in my voice,

I'd leave this place with a grin my face if only it wasn't their choice!

I salute the good doctor,

he treats me as well as a pet,

but do you think I would leave if they let me be free I'll give you the answer YOU BET!

I would kill to be better,

yes I would kill to be free,

I'll take my pills and bow to your will if one day you'll allow me to leave,

and I'll force myself through,

and you'll all get your dues,

I swear on my life with my tongue like a knife when I get out I'll kill you!
