    "The Brain of Britain" Lyrics

    The brain of Britain sits in the tower of London
    Protected by the ravens
    The prime-minister and the cabinet queue up to consult it
    On urgent matters of state
    And it sits suspended in fluid
    Attached to ten electrodes
    It's a scene straight out of Star Wars or Star Trek

    The brain of Britain masterminds the nation
    From this curious vantage point
    It's an oracle, it's a magic eight-ball
    That can give out just three answers
    (and here they are)
    It's the best kept secret of all
    The politicians are pawns to the power
    Of a prime piece of meat called
    The brain of Britain

    The brain of Britain was born into this limbo
    It knows no other existence
    Its consciousness floats like an island
    Communicating only by pulse
    The queen swears allegiance to the brain
    But the future king wants to kick it
    Through the streets of London like a football
    And that means trouble

    The brain of Britain has no wizard of oz
    Pulling the protein strings
    Science can't explain the super brain away
    And that's the terrifying thing
    Cause the brain can't see the world
    It can't see the big picture
    Just a color-by-numbers before the next election
