Bb                         F
Think of these thoughts as limitless light
  Bb             F
Exposing closing circuitry of fright
Bb                   F
Think of each moment holding this breath
   Bb    Eb        F
As death minute in decimal

*play two Gs an octave apart twice*

Bb             F
Resident minor how do you plead
      Bb             F
We'll need your testimony on the stand [service of the fee fi fo fum]
Bb                F
Solemnly swear to tell the whole truth
   Bb       Eb      F                Bb
So help you son now raise your right hand

*play two Gs an octave apart twice*

Bb                F
Father your honor may I explain
   Bb                    F
My brain has claimed its glory over me
Bb                  F
I've a good heart albeit insane
Bb          Eb       F    Bb
Condemn him to the infirmary

*flip pages rapidly*
*play two Gs an octave apart eight times*
*have ambient conversation*
*make a racecar approach*

All mine towers crumble down the flowers gasping under rubble
Cm               G                Cm              G
Shrieking in the hall of lull thy genius sates a thirst for trouble

Bb                    F
Scattering sparks of thought energy
  Bb            F
Deliver me and carry me away
Bb                 F
Here in my kingdom I am your lord
  Bb   Eb      F         Bb
I order you to cower and pray


Cm              G                                Cm
Nuns commence incanting [axon – dendrite] as the lightning strikes mine
temples thus
Cm                G               Cm                  G
Electrifying mine chambers wholly scorching out thine sovereignty
Cm                 G
spiraling down thy majesty
  Cm               G
I beg of thee have mercy on me
Cm           G
I was just a boy you see
  Cm                 G
I plead of thee have sympathy for me

Cm                         Eb
See how the serfs work the ground [see how they fall]
          Ab                 Eb
And they give it all they've got
         Ab                  Eb
And they give it all they've got
        Ab                 Eb              G
And you give it all you've got 'til you're down

Cm                      Eb
See how the brain plays around
        Ab            Abm               Eb   G7
And you fall inside a hole you couldn't see
        Ab            Abm
And you fall inside a hole inside a

Doctor I can't tell if I'm not me

Bb                       F

Never they ponder whether electric
Bb      Eb     F          Bb
Calming if you look at it right!
