Remember how badly
the tin man wanted a brain.
Was it really cause he needed it
for times when he felt insane.
Did the tin man really know the
trouble it would cause.
Sometimes your brain is active
and sometimes it takes a pause.


Did you ever wonder what
would happen if you didn't have a brain.
Just going through life ignorant
and never feeling pain.


Did you ever think your brain
fully knows your soul or does
it play tricks on all of those you know.

So I often time have wondered why
we need a brain, only to come up with
the same answer, time and time again.

The brain is your only tool
to finding out who you are.
And it's the brain you use
to see that you've come far.

Good Gawd I feel your frustration - I really do!! LOL Sometimes I wish I could take my brain out, put it in a jar, and just "chill..." without it for awhile! Mine gets me in quite a bit of trouble - anytime my life gets miserable, it's because of that damn brain of mine!! I truly understand you!
