about

This disturbing piece tells the true story of Skafish’s parents lying when they claimed that they were merely taking him to a routine checkup, when in fact, he was being taken to a psychiatrist. This was based on an attempted remedy for Skafish being considered a complete misfit and outcast in Catholic grade school. Spoken word interplay between band members leads to a surprise doom and gloom ending, featuring polytonality and noise.

lyrics

Spoken:
We’ll see a psychiatrist
We’re going to the psychiatrist
We’ll see a psychiatrist!

ln the car I go
Where I go, I don't know
I am beat black and blue
That's what I learned in school
I try to run away
But I get caught each day
I swallow lots of pills
I try to die but

We'll see a psychiatrist
(Don't be afraid)
We'll see a psychiatrist
(Don't be afraid)
We'll see a psychiatrist
(Don't be afraid)

Mother cries all day
Spoken: (crying and whimpering)
She kneels and prays to God
Spoken: Oh Jesus help me Jesus save us
She never thought her kid
Would flop and be so weird
Daddy's busy now
He doesn't want to hear
Spoken: Shut up I’m busy
He's dreaming of more money
Spoken: Nothing’s really wrong
Spoken: It’s just a check up now

We'll see a psychiatrist
(Don't be afraid)
We'll see a psychiatrist
(Don't be afraid)
We'll see a psychiatrist
(Don't be afraid)
There is no escape today

Who’s there?
Who’s there?
Who's there?
