Grey Matter

from Raygunomics by The Runaway Five



i woke up today, feeling like an inspiration
but to my dismay i was left without a choice
filing systems overflowing leaving entropy unchecked
make it go away and replace with something more important

try to define memories that i no longer want
try to assign salience to what needs to be seen
how can i justify to you that all the shit i put you through
won't be just so much wasted time, why should you trust me?

i am made entirely of information
DNA, terabytes of life
but out of all these details, there are few i really need
pointlessly saved data wasting space
when i sing this song, you're welcome to sing along
i know it might make you blush, but give me something to remember us
as we are today

i woke up today, feeling like an inspiration
if i had my way, i'd inspire you
five hundred billion neurons, firing like fireworks
sparking in sequence, sparkling just for you
