  1. Albert's Brain

Poor Al, his brain was stolen and sliced and diced for research, without the express approval of his next of kin. He was, of course, already in the dead zone. Some of the researchers' methods were poor to middlin' meddlin',or so I've read. Albert's genius was just wasn't that dense piece of meat in his head, he had an incessant curiosity that we would all be better off nurturing in our own noggins. The lyrics ring true to Einstein's science experiments and discoveries....Rick

“Albert’s Brain”
by: Rick Landers © May 19, 2018

I’m thinking of Albert’s brain
I’m thinking of Albert’s brain

He rode upon a beam of light
Caught himself in mid-flight
Turned on his savant charm
Became a child before too long

I’m thinking of Albert’s brain
I’m thinking of Albert’s brain

While Newton pondered gravity
An apple falls far from the tree
With Albert waving frantically
at nothing particularly

I’m thinking of Albert’s brain
I’m thinking of Albert’s brain

He conjured EMC squared
Still we laughed at his hair
While he played with mirrored pairs
The world collapsed, a M.A.D. affair

And in the middle of each night
he'd play his violin so sweetly
And on his chalkboard, black and white
he'd play with mathematics, discretely

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK (*Violin)

He smoked his pipe he rode a bike
Al consumed earthly delights
While God played with loaded dice
Einstein fought for human rights
He fought for human rights

I’m thinking of Albert’s brain
I’m thinking of Albert’s brain

Now Albert’s risen everywhere
His brain sliced up with sacred care
Meat-ware multiplied and shared
With research protocols impaired

I’m thinking of Albert’s brain
Still thinking about his brain

And in the middle of each night
he'd play his violin so sweetly
And on his chalkboard, black and white
he'd play with mathematics, discretely

Was that brain over-sized?
A convoluted mystery ride?
His magical retreat?
Or just a random quantum leap?

I’m thinking of Albert’s brain
I’m thinking of Albert’s brain
I’m thinking
I’m thinking
My mind is wandering
