Reflex

lyrics

I don't have to tell my fingers what to do, they just move
Somehow without conscious thought they always make the right shapes
I taught em how, and now it's not something I have to think about

You made up your mind before you ever heard a single word
What's the difference between a thought process and a reflex?
You moralize as easily as you would breathe or blink your eyes

Chickens with their heads cut off don't need brains to run around and digest grains
It's generous to say you didn't think twice, you have a large brain but a spinal cord would suffice

When I say that you are lost, it's not to say I know the way
No-one's brain can really hold the whole meaning of anything
You filter out what you decide you don't need to think about

Tell me what am I supposed to do with conflicting truths?
How did you distill it all into one opinion?
It hurt to think, somebody get me a stiff drink

Chickens with their heads cut off don't need brains to run around and digest grains
It's generous to say you didn't think twice, you have a large brain but a spinal cord would suffice
