Lyrics
I think I’m losing my brain, going insane
I think I’m losing my brain

Don’t stop but turn around, look who’s back in town
It’s me again
Scream but don’t make a sound, laugh but don’t play the clown
Or you’ll see your end

Next time we’ll wonder if the world is really round
And how some of its creatures
Claim they can scream but not make a sound, it’s very strange

Live for the right to stop, aim for the very top
But never try to reach it
Act like your life’s the best, ready for the final test
But don’t ever preach it

Some people laugh at me and say I’m kind of strange
That’s ’cause I live my dreams while they let theirs slip away

And when your soul grows tired, flee from the shots they fire
But don’t look away – don’t look away!
‘Cause if you flee the show, all your secrets they will know
And then you well pay, oh yeah, uh huh

Analysis: One of the first songs written during the very first, experimental sessions in April 1987. Even in its earliest form, the song was written with a free-style lead guitar above a simple, repetitive bass line, but this 1990 recording really brought out the best of that formula. The lyrics point out the contradictions of life.
