Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

(The Strokes Left Me) Brain Dead

This song was created for Game of Bands round 236 : "Graphic Notation"

Lyrics:

There’s a prison in my head causin’ such a commotion
All the inmates up in arms tearin’ up my emotions
Gotta get the dopamine locked into serotonin
Take the oxytocin down just to stop all its moanin’

It’s an ever-losing race but I gotta keep runnin’
It’s not the thrill of the chase, but it’s better than nothin’
Gotta pick up the pace if I wanna be somethin’
Never find my own place if let everyone in

I
Can’t get out of my head
(Get out of my head)
I’m
Just
Brain dead
(Brain dead)

Take the bottle to the top ‘til I drown at the bottom
Never knowing when to stop ‘cuz the demons I fought ‘em
Take another plastic pill ‘til I erase all the problems
But I’m just lyin’ to myself ‘cuz nothin’ ever solves ’em

There’s gotta be another way, this fuckin’ life is relentless
Another day, another night, another high, it’s just endless
Gimme solace, gimme peace, just a break from the senseless
‘Cuz I’m runnin’ out of time before I try to just end this

I
Can’t get out of my head
(Get out of my head)
I’m
Just
Brain dead
(Brain dead)

Gimme somethin’ else to hold onto, please
Can’t keep strokin’ out here and fallin’ to my knees

Starin’ at the ceilin’ countin’ every old and comin’ sin
Cyclin’ so fast through depression gonna give myself the bends
Gonna take another loss ‘cuz I can never really win
Now the alarm is goin’ off, I gotta do this shit again
[Exit]
