American Healthcare Lyrics

When I was seven years old
I saw a dead man in the road
Outside the liquor store a few blocks from my school
Well he was cold and he was warm
He looked the damn same as before
Except for something in the eyes and a bit of drool
Well people...

    Well I think this one is quite obvious. It's from the perspective of someone who, ever since they were young, wanted to be a doctor to save the sick. But when they become a doctor, they realize that the entire American healthcare system is corrupt and greedy, and this song also remains true to Penelope Scott's often anti-capitalist lyrics, like Rät. Once they see how the system isn't working for the people, they don't how to feel about it, and they start feeling immoral and they don't know what to do about it. You can see it in the lyrics,

    "Well people die everyday,
    I wouldn't have it any other way,
    I just think that they should feel good while they are alive." and,

    "You corporate fucking prick
    I did not become a doctor just to suck the devil's dick."

    About a doctor growing up and hoping to help folks get better but then understands that the healthcare folks are a bit greedy sometimes and they are like "I DIDNT BECOME A DOCTOR FOR THIS?!?!?"
