Diagnosis Lyrics

13. Diagnosis (2:48)
"The Psychiatrist informs the Mother and Father of his findings. But will they accept the unconventional course of treatment he suggests?"

[Flute and bass flute: Jeroen Goossens]

[Psychiatrist:]
Yes, I’m afraid I see signs of impairment
But there is something more
He’s an exceptional savant, one in a million

His mind is ablaze with distraction
But maybe I can help
I’m testing a new drug that can help him focus

[Father:]
Please tell us more, that sounds intriguing
Can he join your clinical trial?
If he could concentrate he could help me
He might even be of some use!

Center the mind, cut straight to the core
Brighten the flame, break open the cage
Shatter the wall, shut down the noise
Soften the pain, sharpen the brain

[Psychiatrist:]
I have to confess it’s experimental
I’m still running through the tests
The side effects could include extreme delusions

[Mother:]
No! Not on my life, I’ll never allow it!
No matter what we could win
I won’t let you endanger my child
I refuse to play dice with his life

[Mini Moog solo: Rick Wakeman]
