Got to get some sleep
I’m so nervous in the night
I don’t know how to stop
No, I don’t know how to stop
I don’t know how to stop
I don’t know how to stop

 

 

 

There are always hidden silences
Waiting behind the chair
They come out when the coast is clear
They eat anything that moves
I go shaky at the knees
Lights go out, stars come down
Like a swarm of bees

 

No Self Control

The prefontal cortex (that section of the brain right behind your forehead) is the part that helps us with things like decisionmaking and regulating our behavior. Self-control, or willpower, falls under this heading, and thus is taken care of in this part of the brain.
