Brain Police
 
When you're feeling crazy
And you don't know what to do
We've got a Mental Jail
With a bed reserved for you
There's no chance to escape us
We'll commit you every time
The Brain Police will get you
When you are losing your mind
 
If you start telling people
That you're going to hurt yourself
We've got a way to help you
Put those plans back on the shelf
Your friends sign a petition
We throw you in the hole
The Brain Police will get you
When you are out of control
 
When you start directing traffic
Without wearing any clothes
When you stop ingesting anything
That won't fit up your nose
When you burn yourself with cigarettes
And you don't mind the pain
The Brain Police will get you
When you are going insane
 
When you start hearing voices
Through the fillings in your teeth
When you think that you're Mick Jagger
Or even worse, you're Keith
When you take on ten policemen
And knock them all on their butts
The Brain Police will get you
When you are going nuts
 
When you're disoriented
as to person, time or place
When you look into the mirror
And don't recognize the face
When you really get to feeling
Like a motherless child
The Brain Police will get you
When you are going wild
 
So if you're feeling dangerous
Or unable to care
We've got a way to help you
Get the world out of your hair
If you want to know what's coming
I'll tell you how it will be
The Brain Police will get you
When you have gone crazy
