Code Cool Lyrics

by Patricia Barber

Split seconds can carry quite a surprise,
diffuse white matter will close my eyes
thus brutalized
I will sleep as if I were dreaming

Emergency downbeat Code Cool begins rapid sequence intubation
IV squeeze and circulation thus stabilized

I inspire as if I were preaching

I square dance slow make love with my lips
read eyes like books read books like science

I remember and fix citation to case
case to form

Discombobulation and I can cook up a storm
Im Michelangelo's David tested and worn

Distal extremity return my new shoes are wide
they are smooth light brown fat soles and ties
thus mobilized

And I walk as if I were dancing

I will speak as if I were teaching

I will live as if I were loving
