Anaphylactic Shock Reaction - lyrics

Anaphylactic shock reaction
That’s what the doctors said
After their desperate attempt at revival
And they pronounced my mother dead

It was just a Saturday morning
But her heart was racing
And she was having trouble breathing
Dad raced full speed with his horn blowing
His mad dash
Running lights
And driving down
The wrong side of the street

Her flare-shaped emergency EpiPen
Didn’t buy her any extra time
And at the emergency-room entrance
A nurse asked, “Shall I call for a code?”
Head nurse said “Yes!”
They all did their best
Even cracked her chest
But by now you know the rest

Anaphylactic shock reaction
That’s what the doctors said
After their desperate attempt at revival
And they pronounced my mother dead

(bridge)
I knew of her allergies
To flowers, pollen, and honey bees
With Mom gone, angry feelings
With Mom gone, total loss
With Mom gone, angry feelings
Angry feelings and total loss

Anaphylactic shock reaction
That’s what the doctors said
After their desperate attempt at revival
And they pronounced my mother dead
