"His Inner Defenses Are Starting To Fall"

Since House mentioned Pink Floyd in the episode “The Socratic Method,” it’s given me an excuse to delve into the brilliant, disturbing and melancholy lyrics of a musician and songwriter who knows what it’s like to spend quality time inside a lovely institution for mental hygiene. *cough* His songs provide an unflinching look inside the mind of someone who has battled with some rather large and toothy personal demons. If there’s “a thin line between love and hate,” then the walls *really* start to break down between genius and madness. It’s probably no accident that, statistically, artists are several times more likely than the average population to struggle with mental health issues.

 

The link I’ll provide for the Pink Floyd song I’m parodying actually includes all the lyrics to PF’s famous (and fabulous) concept album “The Wall” which the band performed in its entirety as the Berlin Wall was coming down. Whenever I listen to this album, I think about how the Berlin Wall fell and hope, someday, all such walls, borders and barriers that humanity has erected will come tumbling down. Here’s the link for “Another Brick in the Wall:” http://pinkfloyd.net/lyrics/index.php?album=6&PHPSESSID=82dcc57d5c4bad287310ad4301287b64  For any younger readers who are asking, “Right, what’s the Berlin Wall?” LOL here’s one of many links available: http://www.dailysoft.com/berlinwall/history/index.htm

 

(Note: I’ve combined parts 2 and 3 of “Another Brick in the Wall” for this parody.)

“His Inner Defences Are Starting To Fall”

 

Doctor House needs his medication

To keep his pain under control

He suffered “muscle death” from a thigh infarction

And spends a lot of time alone

Hey! People! Leave Doctor House alone

His intellect’s not small but he doesn’t make house calls

All in all he’d rather not see patients at all

 

Doctor Cuddy feels stress and frustration

Because Gregory House won’t be controlled

His snarks yaw like chasms in the exam room

Because Cuddy won’t leave House alone

Hey! Cuddy! Just leave House alone

He’s been dragging his feet for six years that’s all

And “misdialing” consultation calls

 

House doesn’t trust humanity

And sometimes loses his cool around Cuddy

But he knows he has to be on the ball

And can’t leave the Ducklings with nothing to do at all

No! That wouldn’t be a wise idea at all

His inner defences are starting to fall

As good friends break down his walls
