lyrics

They’re working on my brain
To repair the circuits that short and turn me off
To clear the conduits they say got blocked
By the quake and the aftershocks

You lie down and talk
‘Till they hear all they need to know
So they can tell you exactly where to go
To avoid the undertow

They’re gonna find her and take her away
And put something in her place
So I won’t think so much
About her wkiss or her touch

They’re working on my brain
So I don’t implode when someone says her name
Or obsess which drains
Me of the energy to stay in the game

It’s so much safer today
Than McMurphy in the cuckoo’s nest
They show you how to meditate and rest
And breathe away the ache in your chest

They’re gonna find her and take her away
And put something in her place
They say I will feel more alive
But what about the me that won’t survive

They’ve charted a course
They’re gonna send me to a brand new shore
With only blue skies and opening doors
I’ll be better than I was before

They’re working on my brain
To repair the circuits that short and turn me off
To clear the conduits they say got blocked
By the quake and the aftershocks

They’re working on my brain
They’re working on my brain
They’re working on my brain
