This is your Brain on music
(twelve bar blues, except for the first verse which somehow ended up at 16 bars.)

Rock stars are famous for their unhealthy obsessions.
Get hooked on meth, then booked for its possession.
They drink too much, keel over on the stage,
Or smoke to death, die at an early age.
Some roll the dice, for gambling’s their vice.
A few crave sex, a bit more than most the rest.
But the one kick- ev’ry musician has found:
(is?) We all love the feel of getting high off our sound.

Because our brains’ on music,
and it ain’t a pretty thing.
We love to abuse it
`til our ears begin to ring.
If you want, you can buy it;
You can get some at our gig.
So please do feel free to try it,
You might even make it big.
The high is quite a thriller,
You’ll melt away the stress.
The only side effect is that your life will be a mess.

It’s symptoms are quite classic, I’m sure you know them well.
It’s a costly habit, and your budget goes to hell.
Next to leave is logic, followed by your friends,
?_____________________________________
You lust for a new Fender, Instead of a new car.
You should have got a job, but you instead bought a guitar.

Because your brain’s on music,
And it ain’t a pretty thing.
-Love to abuse it
`til your ears begin to ring.
If you want, you can buy it;
You can get some at our gig.
So please do feel free to try it,
You might even make it big.
The high is quite a thriller,
You’ll melt away the stress.
The only side effect is that your life will be a mess.

If you ever need a victim,
You can always look at me.
I got an A in band class,
But my other grades are D’s.
My folks, they tried rehab,
They banned me from guitar,
That didn’t work, I just played music in the car.
They burned my lyrics, stole all my cassettes.
They wish instead of lessons they’d have given me a pet.

Because my brain’s on music,
And it ain’t a pretty thing.
I love to abuse it
Have you ever heard me sing?!?
If you want, you can buy it;
You can get some at this gig.
So please do feel free to try it,
You might even make it big.
The high is quite a thriller,
You’ll melt away the stress.
The only side effect is that your life will be a mess.
I'm a pianist and a poet,
and someday the world will know it
But until then all that I can do
is play my songs for you.
