The Ballad of Me and My Brain

Album: I Like It When You Sleep... (2016)
  • And well, I think I've gone mad
    Isn't that so sad?
    And what a shame you've lost a brain that you never had
    Oh mum check the car it can't have gone far
    I must have left it on a train or lost in a bar
    It's likely in a Sainsbury's
    Flirting with the girls and waiting for me
    I jumped on a bus, declared my name
    And asked if anybody's seen my brain
    Your brain was last seen going for a run
    And would you sign an autograph for my daughter Laura?
    'Cause she adores you
    I think you're shit
    I've gotta look for my brain for a bit!
    I stepped outside, it hurt my eyes
    Well what do you expect when you've got no mind!
    I searched all day it drove me insane
    Where would I be if I was my brain?

    The nice nurse told me said she felt my pain
    But couldn't find a single trace of my brain
    Oops I did it again started playing
    Forget my brain, remember my name Writer/s: ROSS MACDONALD, GEORGE DANIEL, ADAM HANN, MATTHEW HEALY
