  • (It was one morning when I woke up, and then I found out that they'd
    signed some papers, and then I was gonna be kept in a bed owing to my
    state of mind.
    And then I found out that the authorities had said, um, that I'd gotta

    Is there any truth in what they say
    Cherry Blossom Clinic
    Lock me in and throw the key away

    In this sad position where I lie
    From the corner of my eye

    Everyday I keep asking for my Dad
    They must think I'm going mad
    Lift the blankets off my face
    Quick before I suffocate
    Trying hard to meditate
    Tell the people, "What a scene"
    Write a letter to the Queen
    Asking her if she can come to tea

    Cherry Blossom Clinic
    Is there any truth in what they say
    Cherry Blossom Clinic
    Lock me in and throw the key away

    Like a tea tray in the sky
    Helicopter lands upon my bed
    Phantom horses quickly fade
    Turning into lemonade
    Probably feel better when I'm dead

    Cherry Blossom Clinic
    Is there any truth in what they say
    Cherry Blossom Clinic
    Lock me in and throw the key away
