Track Name: I Cycle
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
Track Name: Weapons of Mass Destruction
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
Track Name: Butterflies
