BREAKFAST IN BEDLAM
CHAPTER 1 - EVERYTHING IS ALRIGHT

Roscoe M G: Dr. Montgomery
SLY: Inmate Sylvester
Alexa von Trash: Nurse Alex


'Dr Montgomery? Dr Montgomery?' Nurse Alex inquired, pushing her way into the Dr's office with her shoulder so as not to get her gloves dirty. Dr Montgomery was sitting at his desk smoking a cigar and drinking whiskey from a pill cup; his usual unorthodox approach to medicinal care. 'Dr. Montgomery there's a little problem with one of the inmates.'
'Let me guess it's that fucking Sylvester again' The Dr sneered to his makeshift cup, putting a great deal of emphasis on the word 'fucking'. 'Of course it is!' He confirmed before the nurse could reply. 'What is it this time nurse? Tongue biting? Spitting at staff? Masturbating? Shit flinging? How is there a problem anyway? He's under full jacket restraint and sedation isn't he?'
'It's different this time, he's not violent today...well not in a physically attacking sense.'
'Enlighten me...'
'He looks tortured doctor, we can't calm him today, he's wailing and screaming, thrashing his head a lot too. Screaming about running out of time and 'loosing moments' all very strange. Should I write it in the log book? I think this is a new one for him.'
'That's not a new one he's always screaming something inane. I'm not gonna bother to check on him today, I became a neurologist to conduct studies on healthy human brains, not to be stuck in a fucking dead-end job, babysitting dribbling criminals! Stick him with a double dose of paraldehyde, the usual dose seems most ineffective these days and try to calm him if you can, be nice, tell him 'everything's alright', you know the drill.'
'OK Doctor.' Nurse Alex said slinking out of the office still keeping her gloves away from all surfaces.
'Actually. Nurse?'
'Yes Doctor'
'Forget the double dose of paraldehyde'
'Ummm...OK. Should I administer something else instead'
'Yeah...forget the double shot...give that idiot a triple dose...a large triple at that.'

lyrics

(Alexa):Everything is alright, everything will be just fine
Everything is alright, everything will be just fine


(Sly):Oh, how long have I been here? I don't remember
Think my time is nearly there and I am really scared
We have an early bedtime, I'm cuddling my bedpan
I fill it up with red jam. They say that "that big head bang"
should have killed but I'm exception to the rule
Now I'm in bedlam, because I made a dead cat
and then I made a dead man
I think I am dependant on sedatives and meds that keep me
strictly in my head and...stop me killing stuff

(Roscoe):Another second is passed, another moment is lost
before you realise...

(Alexa):Everything is alright, everything will be just fine
Everything is alright, everything will be just fine

(Sly):Oh, I've had enough of leaning on these padded cells
they've got me healing wrong.
My head's just where my head should be;
now I can choose who I will be.
For now I'm the white shirt wearer, in a straightjacket
the vacant starer,
Sometimes I think I'm Che Guevara
Dunno why I have to stay in here now...

(Roscoe):Another second is passed, another moment is lost
before you realise...

(Alexa):Everything is alright, everything will be just fine
Everything is alright, everything will be just fine

(Sly):Oh Oh, slow mo', prescriptions by the boat load
I'm feeling kind of so-so, the nurse has me in choke hold
You see me smiling with meds in my mind
Be everything's fine and there's plenty of time!

(Roscoe):Another second is passed, another moment is lost
before you realise you're just a little too late.

(Alexa):Everything is alright, everything will be just fine
Everything is alright, now you've lost your mind.

(Roscoe):Another second is passed, another moment is lost
before you realise you're just a little too late,
you're just out of time, there's something wrong with you inside.
