I am all that I think
I am the way that my neurons are wired
They fire ions through electrical
synapses fusing themselves to receiving cells
building a network that only gets stronger
as I continue the thought pattern
implied by the process
I make a decision on what to react to
what I perceive based on electrical current
And I am all that I feel
I'm my neurotransmitters' desire
These chemical messengers look for a nerve
with the perfect receptor to fit in
They get in and give it specific instructions
on what to release until this chain
of events reaches down to the glands which
then produce every hormone known to
spread to the tissue of organs
and make them dance
All I can do is breathe
That's how I put out the fire
And all I can do is think
and force my circuitry to rewire
Everything outside is already inside
There's nothing we see that we don't
at least partially make on our own
in our heads so it seems like my duty
to get in my bio-computer and
pry apart neurons with long-term relationships
that tell my brain to release "feel bad" chemicals
One day I'll be free from the brain
that makes me "me"
Now that I know that I'm in control
I can cut my own puppet strings
You are all that you think
You're the way that your neurons are linked
I bet if you don't let it get a little better
it will get a lot worse
All you gotta do is open up and.....

    General CommentThese might be my favorite lyrics of all time, not favorite song, but favorite lyrics. The song to me means this. That our brain is just like a muscle, and every time we think something, its like doing a work out, or maybe one rep in a work out. when you work out, your muscles get stronger, just like every time we think something, the thought is really just our brain sending signals. for example say when you get really mad the neurons in your brain take path A, and when you don't let things get to you and you're forgiving, the neurons take path B. So if you are always letting things get to you, and getting mad over things, then the neurons are constantly taking path A, its like you're giving the path way to anger in your brain a work out, and as that path gets stronger and stronger, then you're more likely to get mad over things more easily, because the electricity in your brain takes the path of least resistance, and if your always forgiving, and try not to get mad, then you will have a tendency to think like that. Basically the meaning of this song is this. The more you think in a given way, the more prone you are of behaving in whatever way that thinking produces. If you let yourself get mad a lot, then you will be "PRONE" to being an angry person, or naturally inclined to get angry over things. If you try to let things go, and be calm about things then you will be "INCLINED" or "PRONE" to being a more chill person. because those pathways in your brain will be much stronger, so it will be easier, on a pure physical level, for that emotion to be generated. And this is not just for anger, it goes for every thought you can imagine. thats why people say you should always be positive, because then it will eventually be easy, and you can turn yourself into a naturally positive person. YOU create the kind of person you are, If you constantly have to consciously try to think in a certain way, and you do it enough, eventually you wont have to try, it will just be natural for you, so if you practice this, its a way for you to "cut" your own puppet strings. You are in control of you thought patterns! I Love You Mike Larsen!!!
