BRAINWAVES

FOLLOW THE LIGHT INTO MY EYES
ELECTRONIC PULSES TRIGGER INVOLUNTARY SIGHS
I’M NOT SAD, I’M JUST FRUSTRATED
MY MIND IS STRONG BUT KINDA OVERRATED
FULL OF SECRET THOUGHTS
ON THEIR WAY TO SECRET DESTINATIONS
IF I KNEW WHERE THEY WERE GOING
THERE WOULD BE SOME COMPLICATIONS
IT’D GET REAL AND I’D HATE FOR IT TO GET REAL
 
OH OUR UNITED ALTERED STATES OF MIND
 
EVERY 20 SECONDS IT RELATES TO SEX
YOUR GUESS IS AS GOOD AS MINE
OF WHAT I’LL THINK OF NEXT
IT’S UNREAL HOW THEY MOVE IN CIRCLES
GOING NOWHERE
DREAMING WHILE IN CONVERSATION
PRETENDING LIKE I CARE
BUT IT AUTOMATIC FOR ME
AND IT’S AUTOMATIC FOR YOU TOO
 
OH OUR UNITED ALTERED STATES OF MIND
 
ELECTRONIC PULSES FROM A SYNTHETIC GLOW
IT’S IN OUR ATMOSPHERE, TAKE DRUGS TO GO SLOW
INTO OUTER SPACE, TO FIND INNER PEACE
TO FIND YOUR SECRET THOUGHTS
HAVE SECRET POLICE
YOU THINK YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW
BUT NOW YOU KNOW
BIONIC ACTORS IN AN IRONIC SHOW
BRAINWAVES, BRAINWAVES, BRAINWAVES, BRAINWAVES, BRAINWAVES, BRAINWAVES
 
OH OUR
OH OUR
OH OUR
OH OUR UNITED ALTERED STATES OF MIND
 

PROLE POP

AFTER WORK HE GOES HOME AND HE PRAYS

FOR THINGS TO START GETTING BETTER

WASTES HIS TIME ON OTHER FUTILE PURSUITS

WHILE HE WAITS FOR HIS PAYCHECK

TO COME IN THE MAIL

 

HE’LL SAY:

WALK ALL OVER ME, I’M A PUSHOVER YOU SEE

I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO BE

SO HAVE YOUR WAY WITH ME

 

HE’LL ENJOY A DRINK OR TWO

WITH T.V DINNER, ENTERTAINMENT VALUE

DIG INTO SOMETHING STRONGER FOR THE PAIN

THINKING OF HOW HIS FAMILY MUST BE SO PROUD

NOT ONLY HAS HE SURVIVED THIS LONG

BUT HE HAS NOT INCURRED DEBT OR DONE HARM

THAT CANNOT BE UNMADE OR REPAID

TO A DEVIL OR A GOD

 

WALK ALL OVER ME, I’M A PUSHOVER YOU SEE

I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO BE

SO HAVE YOUR WAY WITH ME

 

THE LURE OF HAPPINESS IS WEARING HIM DOWN

LOOKING EVERYWHERE IT CAN’T BE FOUND

CAN’T SEEM TO DRAW BLOOD FROM A STONE

CAN’T SEEM TO AVOID ENDING UP ALONE

 

WALK ALL OVER ME, I’M A PUSHOVER YOU SEE

I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO BE

SO HAVE YOUR WAY WITH ME

 

 

USED TO BE COOL

SOMEBODY SAID FAME IS FLEETING

THAT THE ONLY WAY TO THE TOP IS CHEATING

GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES TO PROVE IT

TO THE MAN WHO IS ACTUALLY A MAN

WHO COULD USE IT

NOTHING SACRED IN A PLACE FOR PERVERTS

LICKING SPECIALS OFF PAVEMENTS FROM ADVERTS

NOTHING CAN IMPRESS ME ANYMORE

YOU USED TO BE LESS

I USED TO BE MORE

 

YOU USED TO BE COOL

YOU USED TO BE HIGH

YOU USED TO BE YOUNG

YOU USED TO BE FUN

 

I’VE BEEN TRYING TO REACH YOU

BUT YOU ARE UNREACHABLE

OUT IN YOUR OWN SOLAR SYSTEM

YOUR HEART BEATS TOO LOUD TO LISTEN TO ANYTHING ELSE

 

IT’S NOT DEVOTION IF THEY MADE YOU DO IT

IT’S NOT PROMOTION IF YOU’RE ABOUT TO LOSE IT

IT’S UNCERTAIN IF YOU CONFUSE IT

IT’S NOT RESPECT IF YOU ABUSE IT

 

YOU USED TO BE COOL

YOU USED TO BE HIGH

YOU USED TO BE YOUNG

YOU USED TO BE FUN

 

I’VE BEEN TRYING TO REACH YOU

BUT YOU ARE UNREACHABLE

OUT IN YOUR OWN SOLAR SYSTEM

YOUR HEART BEATS TOO LOUD TO LISTEN TO ANYTHING ELSE

 

YOU USED TO BE COOL

YOU USED TO BE HIGH

YOU USED TO BE YOUNG

YOU USED TO BE FUN

 

MODERN FUTURE NOISE

MY HAIR IS SLOWLY FALLING OUT

AN EVOLUTIONARY DEMOTION

IN THIS TOXIC ATMOSPHERE

BUT I’M HANGING IN THERE FOR PROMOTION

I KEEP MY SHADOWS OF DOUBT BEHIND ME

AS I’M WALKING INTO THE SUN

I DON’T MAKE EYES WITH THE LOSERS

ONLY HELLO WITH FOLKS I KNOW

 

I STAYED ON THE LIGHT SIDE OF DARKNESS

I LEFT THAT LONELINESS BEHIND ME

I’LL STAY ON THE LIGHT SIDE OF DARKNESS

AND HOPE THAT LONELINESS WON’T FIND ME AGAIN

 

WE’RE ONLY YOUNG ONCE SO LET’S ENJOY IT

LET’S GET PREPARED TO BE EXPLOITED

IN THIS MODERN FUTURE NOISE

I WILL BE SACRIFICED OR ANOINTED

I KEEP MY SHADOWS OF DOUBT BEHIND ME

AS I’M WALKING INTO THE SUN

 

I STAYED ON THE LIGHT SIDE OF DARKNESS

I LEFT THAT LONELINESS BEHIND ME

I’LL STAY ON THE LIGHT SIDE OF DARKNESS

AND HOPE THAT LONELINESS WON’T FIND ME AGAIN

 

11:11

I’M GONNA DISAPPEAR AND BECOME LIZARD SCUM

I’M GONNA HURT YOU WHEN I DESERT YOU

SO I CAN BE NUMBER ONE

SOMEONE’S GONNA BE IMPRESSED

WHEN I FINALLY GET UNDRESSED

LET THE CAMERAS ROLL

AND FINALLY CONFESS TO ALL OF MY WEAKNESS

SO I’M GONNA LIVE IN A CITY

WHERE PEOPLE ARE FEARLESS

WHERE PEOPLE COULD CARELESS

AND MAYBE CHANGE ME

I’M GONNA DISAPPEAR AND BECOME LIZARD SCUM

I’M GONNA HURT YOU WHEN I DESERT YOU

SO I CAN BE NUMBER ONE

 

MOTHER'S NAME YOUR SONS AFTER ME

THE EGO IS IN TOWN

I WON’T LET YOU DOWN

DEVIL WORSHIP IS REALLY WORTH IT

WHEN YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO IT

WHEN YOU DON’T JUST FOOL AROUND WITH IT

 

NOW IT’S 11:11 OR 22 PAST 2

NOW I THINK I’M PSYCHIC

AND EVERYTHING’S A CLUE

TO PREDICT THE FUTURE AND FORGET THE PAST

POUR ME ANOTHER TALL GLASS

I’M STARTING TO FORGET AT LAST

 

MOTHER'S NAME YOUR SONS AFTER ME

THE EGO IS IN TOWN

I WON’T LET YOU DOWN

DEVIL WORSHIP IS REALLY WORTH IT

WHEN YOU PUT YOUR MIND TO IT

WHEN YOU DON’T JUST FOOL AROUND WITH IT
