A New Brain the Musical - In The Middle Of The Room Lyrics


Song from "A New Brain the Musical" is titled "In The Middle Of The Room" and is written by William Finn.

Gordon:
Here I sit in the middle of the room,
I don't throw a fit,
And I don't start crying.
Nurses flit as they fiddle in the room.
It's a damn charade that I can't abide.
Froggy came, froggy went,
I resent his appearance.
Slicing veins, tricky shit!
That is what he said!
Fact remains I could soon be dead.
In the middle of my gloom, in the middle of my fright,
In the middle of my room, in the middle of the night.

Mimi:
Here I stand in the middle of the road,

Gordon:
In the middle of the room,

Mimi:
And I'm waiting for a car,

Gordon:
And I'm waiting for a shot.

Mimi:
To come along and kill me.

Gordon:
Nurse, please!

Mimi:
People ask why I'm standing in the road

Gordon:
Sitting in the room.

Mimi:
And I say because,

Gordon:
I'm afraid of what I've got.

Mimi:
I'm frightened he will die.

Gordon:
I'll die.

Gordon and Mimi:
Kill me please, straight ahead, make me dead, get it over with.

Mimi:
I just called to tell you every thing's gonna be alright.

Gordon:
Ma, you sound foolish.

Mimi:
Mother will protect, mothers gonna fix things,
anything that's wrecked, mothers gonna make things-

Gordon:
Mother! please, say goodbye, ma a heart to heart.
When I die, you can't fall apart.

Mimi:
What a stupid thing to say, rather stab me with a knife, what an ignorant display,
in the middle of your life, the middle of your, in the middle of your life.

Gordon:
It is not the middle of my life, mother! I'm dying!

Mimi:
I will see you tomorrow.
