Nurse's Office Lyrics

Don't cut me, punch me, just let me go
Into the nurse's office where I float away
I'm pale as the loose-leaf paper they grow
From hollowing out all my lungs in the snow
Yeah, I'm coughing
I'm bleeding, Band-Aids won't heal it
'Cause they...

    Crybaby fakes pain and sickness to escape her tormenters, and judging by the line 'This is old, old, old" she's done this a lot before. She begs to be taken home, away from them. She pleads for them to stop, but they just will continue. She's suffering a pain that can't be healed with a band-aid. This also says how the teachers only do their basic jobs, they don't see their students feelings.

    “Nurses office” is about crybaby faking an illness to go home, and escape her bullies. She wishes she was sick but is not so she fakes it

    I think it's about Melanie being bullied by this b**** called Kelly. So she fakes a seizure so then she can escape her bully and go home. She has done this many other times and she said it's getting old. But she is too scared to face to face her bully so she continues to do the same thing over and over.

    “Nurse’s Office” is a heartbreaking song. The amount of pain and bullying that might cause someone to fake being seriously ill is staggering. If you, or anyone you know is being bullied, there are people who care and who can help. Though the teacher in “Nurse’s Office” is apathetic, most teachers will be understanding and helpful. If they aren’t, go to others who can help. Friends in the class, other teachers, and especially parents. You are valuable and you never deserve to be mistreated. You should never be abused the way Melanie Martinez’s character is, or feel that faking sickness is your only escape. It’s my hope that none of you experience bullying of any kind, but if you do, please know that you don’t deserve it. You are worth standing up for, no matter what you’re told. You are worthy of love, no matter how you’re treated. You are loved and infinitely important, no matter how you feel or what anyone thinks of you. I hope there are people telling you that all the time, but if there aren’t, it’s still just as true.

    It’s about Crybaby wanting to skip school because of all the bullies and the neglecting teachers. “Teacher, can I sit right there? This b**** behind me is cutting my hair. No, just sit your ass down at the chalkboard and stare. I faked up a seizure and left outta there.”
    Crybaby has been skipping school for a long time. “This is o-o-old. I’m tired of wishing I was ditching.”

    Have a good day/night!

    Cry baby is simply talking about life and how things can have shortcuts to them but at the end of the day can’t be fixed sometimes. she begs the nurses in the movie to not hurt her anymore much like we ask life to not throw us as many curves as it does. Crybaby is simply trying to be herself without judgement

    Crybaby is hurt in a minor way and she wishes that she could have a broken leg or something to let her go home.
