Committed To Parkview

This song is by Kris Kristofferson.

There's a man across the hall
Who sits staring at the floor
He thinks, he's Hank Williams
Hear him singing through the door

There's a girl in 203
Who stops by to visit me
And she talks about her songs
And the star that she should be

There are lots of special people
Stayin' in or passin' through
And for one thin' or another
Committed to Parkview

There's a girl in 307
Coming down on Thorazine
And a superstar's ex-drummer
Trying to kick Benzedrine

There's a boy just down below me
Who's the son of some well-known
He was brought in by his mother
'Cause his daddy's always gone

There's a bum from down on Broadway
And a few quite well to do
Who have withdrawn from the rat race
And committed to Parkview

There's a girl who cries above me
Loud enough to wake the dead
They don't know what she has taken
That has scrambled up her head

There's a writer and a singer
Who has tried and tried and tried
They just brought him in this mornin'
An attempted suicide

There are those that never made it
Those that did but now are through
Some came of their own good chosin'
Some committed to Parkview

They wake us about 6.30
Just before the mornin' meal
While they're taking blood pressure
They ask us how we feel

And I always say, "Fantastic
There ain't nothing wrong with me"
And then they give me my injection
And I go right back to sleep

And my days are kind of foggy
And my nights are dreamy too
But they're takin' good care of me
Committed to Parkview
