I cannot control my brain, the things it wants, the things it’s saying.
I cannot control my head. If I say die, it thrives instead.
I cannot control my brain, what it wants and what I want are not the same.
It wants me to walk through walls, but I’m perfectly happy just opening doors.
If I’m a light bulb, then it’s the sun, for the things it thinks can’t be undone.
Unlike me, I’m off with a switch.
And that switch? Well my brain is in control of it.

Unfortunately, my brain is, misfortunately, trapped inside my body.
Unfortunately, my brain is, misfortunately, trapped inside my body.

My brain’s just a mass in a body that is small.
When I become a human doormat it becomes a human wall.
The brain is intelligent, the head is smart, but the body is stupid for the body is the heart.
When my brain says “Wander, and do not stay the same”, well my body finds a place to attach a ball and chain.
When the brain writes “Initiative, you better find it”, my body digs a holy little hole for us to hide in.

Unfortunately, my brain is, misfortunately, trapped inside my body.
Unfortunately, my brain is, misfortunately, trapped inside my body.

(Ooooh’s)
But,
If I’m part A, and she’s part B, then naturally that makes you part C. One day part A spoke with part B and said some things sarcastically, but part B took them all very seriously. Trying to be a good friend, well she told part C. Part C thought part A was talking smack and told part A she was never coming back. Part A got mad, really confused, but not realizing part B misconstrued things that they had said before, but it’s too late, part C shut the door. So out of pure anger and being upset, part A said some things, hasn’t fixed them yet. Part A can’t contact part C, and that’s where problem part one might be.

Unfortunately, my brain is, misfortunately, trapped inside my body.
Unfortunately, my brain is, misfortunately, trapped inside my body.
Unfortunately I can’t find a way to get my brain outside..
Unfortunately, my brain is, misfortunately, trapped inside my body.
Unfortunately.
