A crack developed and the wind blew in
Billy Gnosis, weak and thin
He moved to California to start a new life
'Cause back in his hometown he just killed his wife

He started drinking heavy back then
He started eating things that made his head spin
Then his brain became a factory
For making chemicals that shouldn't be

Oh Billy couldn't remember his name
Billy Gnosis was going insane
And soaked in blue light he played and played
I can still hear that sound he made...

Billy burned his home and blew up his car
He sat and watched TV and played the guitar
And read a book that made his head dim
How could he have known that there were worms within?
And the worms ate into his brain
Through his eyes and through his ears they came
They made a home so they could multiply
And feed on Billy's chemicals in paradise.

Oh Billy couldn't remember his name
Our unsung hero had gone insane
And soaked in blue light he played and played
The only thing that killed the worms: My Brain
