I Cycle 04:23
A D Love is a series of doctors from one to the next Life is the quest for a little more respect Be a class warrior Be a backseat driver Be a complicated edcuated member of society But humans are humans Where ever you go And that's important to me A D Fear is a plague of petunias that wither and die Hope is the fire of a righteous mind Shoulder to shoulder with 56 more I'm standing by the parliament and raising my voice Shoulder to shoulder me and 56 more O we want the choice Bm D A E Though people will talk I Cycle Bm D They may want me to walk but I Cycle A D Sex is the fumbling function of form over shame Money has no function at all Gentlemen Only Ladies Forgotten A vat of acid on the 16th hole should show my dislike T.E. Yates is burning bungalows At Rivington Pike Bm D A E Though people will talk I Cycle Bm D They may want me to walk but I Cycle A D Age is a reason to know what we're laughing about Death is the laugh that we haven't had My sensible locks never lower than my ears In shirt and pants and boots I'll spend my retirement years I'll keep my bees company See what they have to teach me Bm D A E Though people will talk I Cycle Bm D A E They may want me to walk but I Cycle Bm D A E Though city folk stare I cycle Bm D Through Preston streets fair I cycle

D Bm F# G Flood me with Dopamine To make me crave the feeling again and again and again and again In tandem with the release of Oxytocin: A hormone that mediates the bonding and love betwixt mates A G A G Oxytocin and Dopamine Soma, Melange and all that's in between D Bm F# G It's not love, love, love, love It's just chemicals, chemicals Pulsing through the brain Chemicals, chemicals That make us act this way The lateral orbito frontal cortex shuts down BANG goes self evaluation, reason, control, fear and anxiety leave, remember to breathe Next the amygdala and hippocampus relax which induces a trance like state in you And it makes me less likely to start a war or small conflict at least My brain becomes a Weapon Of Mass Destruction Pointed at you and at me and at me and at you You and at me and at me and at you Fight or flight responses will kick in before long Time to leave, time to breathe, time to choose and no time to lose As each chemicals ebbs away from the brain Can we do it all again and again and again and again and again? Oxytocin and Dopamine Soma, Melange and all that's in between It's not love, love, love, love It's just chemicals, chemicals Pounding through the brain Chemicals, chemicals Driving us insane My heart becomes a Weapon Of Mass Destruction Pointed at you and at me and at me and at you You and at me and at me and at you

Think - the cave of time can be a treacherous place Where's the mystery in the path laid out? Is it fine to let fear in If you feel unclear? Choose Your Own Adventure Look into the cold dead eyes of a supermodel Hang from the brow of a rugby man You'll stay on that hook Til you close the book and Choose Your Own Adventure The seat of you pants is the the only way to fly Fill up a book and throw it away You'll stay in that cage Until you jump off the page and Choose Your Own Adventure
