Synaptic Misfire

I've got a synaptic misfire
and it's the stuff of brilliance, man

After I'm done having my breakdown
you'll congratulate me
on my new hypothesis
and progress will march on

I'm being driven by a rider
 whose name escapes me,
but it's something
creative and unique

And that rider whispers that
we're just one step away from insanity,
one knock away from Heaven's Door

But some of us get so damn frightened
that we run back to way we've been...
