about

words and melody by Marc Tweed

lyrics

The Brain

You bled the brain alright
So let's soak it in tears tonight
Replace that youthful red
With dirty, wet pigeon feathers

Set your sights on violence
Strangulate the silence
Sometimes you sit alone
Other times you break into strangers' homes

The city shut off the water
The phone is dead
Your mother's dying of cancer
Your father's drunk in bed
Someone stole your stereo
Family portraits cold and stained
But it's staring at you just the same

All the folks you know
Bathe in a sacrificial glow
Picture them one by one
Rotting corpses in the Phoenix sun

The world is just kindling
For the burning in your heart
You tried to make it to your sister's place
But the Nova wouldn't start

Someone stole your stereo....
