I'll turn my stupid brain into a gateway
Meet me in the place where life comes to get away

I'll turn my stupid brain into a gateway
Meet me in the place where life comes to get away

Here it comes
Here it comes
Here we go, ho

It's nice to meet you, ho ho
It's nice to meet you, ho ho

You are a special one, don't you know
Go back and show them a hopeful show
You are a special one, don't you know

Back inside my body I pick up the pieces,
Count up my friends and welcome another day

Back inside my body I pick up the pieces,
Count up my friends and welcome another day Damn that stupid brain

Back inside my body I pick up the pieces,
Count up my friends and welcome another day
Damn that stupid brain

Ho ho
Ho ho

    General CommentChris Minowa said this in an interview:

    In this song, the character turns his brain into a gateway that allows him to see the afterworld. From listening to it, you don't really know if he got to the afterworld by attempting to kill the brain via suicide or by utilizing the brain as a meditative tool to get to the other side. But when he gets through that brain gateway, he hangs with the ghosts for a bit, learns some lessons and comes back. In the end, he gives thanks for the things he did not appreciate prior to leaving, while, at the same time, scolding himself for allowing his brain to overlook all of that beauty in the first place.
