Liner Notes: 

Between work and now 5090 I feel like when I am home I am just sitting around on my computer, laptop, iPad or iPhone. My son said to me that I don't do anything anymore but that I always say I am busy and I suspect my wife feels the same... I took this to another level.

Lyrics: 

V1
cytokinesis
signal transduction
chromatin remodeling
mismatch repair

my cells are
dividing, directing,
building, fixing things
but she never seems to care...
and treats me as though
I'm not ever really there..

PC
but I'm a busy body
on the couch right here

C
she complains I don't do anything
but I'm busy all day long
she says I never get exercise
though my cells cycle so she's wrong

she says I should get a job
but I am building new cell armies
she says I should be smarter
yet I spend all day doing biology

V2
recombination
reverse transcriptase
transposable elements
kinetochores

my genes are
combining, copying,
jumping, aligning
but she thinks I am a bore....
she thinks I lie here doing nothing
though I'm busier than before..

PC
yeah I'm a busy body
I do what I was made for

C
she complains I don't do anything
but I'm busy all day long
she says I never get exercise
though my cells cycle so she's wrong

she says I should get a job
but I am building new cell armies
she says I should be smarter
yet I spend all day doing biology

OUTRO
like nonsense mediated decay
and protein suicide
scenesence or apoptosis
I think our love has died
but I'll stay happy on the couch
there's so much going on inside



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

That is clever. Really fun. I especially like the second half of the chrous. The biology line is priceless.

Ha. Fun stuff. Your fluency with words is amazing and this is really a delight to read! The exercise and cycling lines in the chorus are especially enjoyable!

Amen! I spend my life at my desk albeit absorbed in different activities whether production or songwriting or the online grocery shop. Clever lyrics! 'There's so much going on inside' - yes! You said it in a nutshell. Love it.
