From The Space Between

 

We created this teaching song for you. It is adapted from a song taught to the relatively few and unlucky CC members coming from areas where there are diseases born of Fear. Well, it’s probably more accurate to call it a ditty. Please note, Sharon, the verse at the end is included for a specific reason that is a bit out of place here, but we want you to be exposed to this verse as soon as possible because there could be times when you may be—temporarily—thrust back onto Earth or some other unfamiliar Unaware environment without warning. Try not to be alarmed by that sentence. No, really, try not to be alarmed by it. Focusing on the song will help. We promise.



Amygdalas in Overdrive

 

Amygdalas in Overdrive

Will not ever let you thrive!

 

Amygdalas in Overdrive

It’s when our IQs take a dive!

 

Amygdalas in Overdrive

Produce xenophobic little hives

 

Don’t be Over active!

Don’t be Over active!

 

Amygdalas in Overdrive

Is when we act like we are five

 

Amygdalas in Overdrive

That’s how the hateful thoughts survive:-(

 

Amygdalas in Overdrive

The only time war arrives!

 

It’s way better to think it through

Than believe the silly lies are true

 

Don’t be Over active!

Don’t be Over active!

 

Amygdalas in Overdrive

Will not ever let you thrive

 

Amygdalas in Overdrive

It’s when our IQs take a dive

 

Amygdalas in Overdrive

Make us fearful and connive

 

I am able to stay real calm

When I sing this little psalm

 

Don’t be Over active!

Don’t be Over active!

 

When…my…Amygdala’s in Overdrive

My IQ takes a humongous dive

When I’m calm and think it through

I’ll know more than I ever knew!

 

*********

(the following are the additional lyrics common mentioned in the introductory paragraph)

Don’t be a stupid* pig

Calm down your brain and eat a fig

The natural fruit that’s good for you

They taste great and steer you true

Full of wisdom and compassion

The time for figs is always in fashion

After you eat a fig, go ahead and say “Ta Da”

Because they will surely calm your amygdala!

 

 

*The words ‘sexist,’ ‘racist,’ ‘homophobic,’ ‘classist,’ ‘ageist,’ ‘status monkey,’ ‘elitist snob,’ or ‘general dickhead’ can all be used interchangeably here as needed.

Aside: Technically, in Earth’s most proper English, the plural of amygdala is amygdalae, but within the CC we prefer the more common way of pluralizing nouns. Sounds a bit less pretentious, we think.
