Contrecoup Lyrics

Artist: They Might Be Giants
Album: The Else

You know what's wrong with me
You know phrenology
You saw my injury
You can tell just by looking at my skull

Contrecoup, on the rebound
Contrecoup hurt me again
And the second was worse by far than the first
'Cause it made me limerent

When my head was hit
I bounced away from it
Or as someone who is craniosophic would say
The brain went the opposite way

Contrecoup, on the rebound
Contrecoup hurt me again
And the second was worse by far than the first
'Cause the first just left me feeling inert
But the contrecoup woke my feelings for you
And it left me limerent

Wasn't expecting this. Contrecoup is a brain injury caused by the head hitting a stationary object, such as banging your head on the wall. Phrenology is basically the study of how the shape of the scull connects to emotions and personality. Limerent is intense desire for someone. Thee rest of the lyrics arenít here, but it sounds like a love-story gone wrong covered in scientific terms
