lyrics

Capo 2
{G D, F C}
Extending into the frontal lobe of my brain
And if it got damaged I wouldn't be quite as sane
Bringing spinal fluid to my dopamine receptors
Without them I would be quite susceptible
To primal urges from memories I can't retain.

{G D, F C}
It's forward of the corpus callosum and above too
The ventricle developed from the telencephalon as I grew
But the anterior horn doesn't have choroid plexuses
It can't make spinal fluid so it draws from the nexus
It imports the protection the emotional section is due
{C7} (All of which is to say my brain makes an effort to love you)

{G D, Em F C5}
The anterior horn of the lateral ventricle
Keeps my forebrain working at its pinnacle
And if I'm sick then give me chloramphenicol
But there's no Neisseria here
You're my favourite source of dopamine my dear

{Em G, D F C5}
Jargon aside
Swallow your pride
We're all just chemicals on the inside
I can abide
The times that you lied
Because you allowed your forebrain to decide.

{G D, Em F C5}
The anterior horn of the lateral ventricle
Keeps my forebrain working at its pinnacle
And if I'm sick then give me chloramphenicol
But there's no Neisseria here
You're my favourite source of dopamine my dear

{G D, Em F C5}
The anterior horn of the lateral ventricle
Keeps my forebrain working at its pinnacle
And if I'm sick then give me chloramphenicol
But there's no Neisseria here
You're my favourite source of dopamine my dear
