Standing on the runway waiting for takeoff
I wanna fly, wanna watch me flake off
I can't move 'cause the man has the brake off
You gotta help me, help me to shake off
This body of mine, I wanna get out of this void
This body of mine, and I don't wanna be destroyed
This body of mine, I don't wanna turn android
This body of mine, you gotta help me avoid that

Brainstorm, here I go,
Brainstorm, flying low
Brainstorm, I'm gonna miss it
Brainstorm, you'd bet I'd kiss it

I can't get no peace until I get into motion
Sign my release from this planet's erosion
Paranoia police have sussed out my potion
You gotta help me or there'll be an explosion
In this body of mine, I'm gonna get out of this void
This body of mine, and I don't wanna be destroyed
This body of mine, and I don't wanna turn android
This body of mine, you gotta help me avoid that

Brainstorm, here I go
Brainstorm, flying low
Brainstorm, I'm gonna miss it
Brainstorm, you'd bet I'd kiss it

I'm breaking up
I'm falling apart
I'm floating away

    I think it references an old and rare psychedelic comic from the 70's in the uk called 'brainstorm' by bryan talbot. Follows the story of chester p. Hackenbush, the 'psychedelic alchemist' going through the voids of time, space and random dimensions on epic tripped out missions etc.
