A sponge gets filled

A sponge will leak

External noise, turned off

In silence we think

|

Not repeat, but drain

Examine

The Brain

Striated Membrane

Wired Connections

Can drive one insane

|

Turn of the TV

Remove the small screens

Digest your infeed

Process your outfeed

Are they your beliefs

Or others' on repeat

If their congruence skips beats

False kings in throne seats

Life gets so complicated

Too easy to just hate it

If you're always infuriated

Maybe cause your brain's been marinated

|

Bathed in neurochemicals

Your Pathways, Your Signals

If your thoughts are dismal

You evaporate, like ethanol

Your neurons, get burnt all

And were afraid of living just too small

|

Your content's on autofeed

Your brain is on autoread

Your wires are now autolinked

No process, just autothink

Override that instinct

Actions made distinct

Change your mind in one blink

Be clear and succinct

|

Your destiny is what you make

You choose your own fate

You get to start on any date

For freedom we celebrate

Your future you create

What you feed your brain, You marinate

(you marinate)

(you marinate)

(you marinate)
