lyrics

I woke up trussed up tied down good with my head opened up on a concrete slab.
Last thing I knew I think I fell asleep slightly drunk underneath my desk at the party in the doctor's lab.

Doctor doctor, what's your plan?
Will you destroy me or will you make me a man?
Doctor doctor, here's the deal: I think I like the way you make me feel:
Alive, Alive, Alive, Alive

I think it feels good when you prod with your probes right there on my lobes ah Christ, Doctor don't stop now!
If this is all there is - God - this is all I need - just a little electroshock and a gluco-saline feed and thou.

Doctor doctor, tell me plain:
Is this for real or is it in my brain?

Doctor doctor, here's the deal:
I think I like the way you make me feel:
Alive, Alive, Alive

Oh but then I see on the slab next to me:
Another brain another body.
And I say why? Doctor -
I thought we were meant to be!
But you're a two-timing double-dealing scientist playing
Games with a brain that's in pain
And you done me wrong
Doctor -
I thought I was your only one

So if you could just unclamp us
And unhand my hippocampus
I'll say goodbye.
I never will forgive you
'Cos I never could forget - wait
Where was I?
Where am I?
Who am I?

I think it's all right that you stay out late playing cards with the boys in the land mine lab next door;
Just as long as when you come home you'll put your sweet hands, oh your sweet sweet hands on my left amygdala once more.

Doctor doctor, tell me plain: Is this forever or is it just a game?

Doctor doctor, here's the deal:
I think I like the way you make me feel
I think I love the way you make me feel
I love the way you make me think I feel:
Alive, Alive, Alive, Alive, Alive
