You Are the Brains (TOS: Spock's Brain)

from Song Trek by Adam Sakellarides

lyrics

A vessel is a body
Like a big well-oiled machine
And all its parts must be present
To function optimally

She invaded with out warning
For reasons so unknown
Rendered us unconscious,
came to— where'd my number one go?

I found my dear friend on the doctor's bio-bed
With the last thing he needed: a hole in his head

We got heart and soul, but you are the brains

Together we compensate for him
We chart the trail, find anomalies
Talk to the natives surrounded
By sophisticated machinery

No-one down here knows what's going on
Which kinda prompts the question: How'd these dummies survive this long?

We got heart and soul, but you are the brains

Their library of knowledge is effusive
Too bad they never really seem to use it
Made you controller, took your brain when they got ya
They exploit your medulla oblongata

We followed your voice's echoes
And the doc crammed for the test
Connected your speech centers first
That part we kinda regret

The prime directive says don't mess with other kinds
But I needed my friend back, I hope they do not mind

We got heart and soul, but you are the brains
