After the third episode of BrainDead ("Goring Oxes: How You Can Survive The War On Government Through Five Easy Steps"), we could use a refresh before watching the fourth episode ("Wake Up Grassroots: The Nine Virtues Of Participatory Democracy, And How We Can Keep America Great By Encouraging An Informed Electorate"). Fortunately, we have one here in musical form with lyrics below!


Gareth and Laurel sitting in a tree

Oh right that meteor that came here from beyond the stars
D.C. is filled with bugs that eat your brains and dig the cars
They crawl in through your ear holes
Control your thoughts unless your head explodes

Infected people keep infecting people who are not
Gustav is maybe not a doctor: "No, but I read a lot"
A bug was in the CAT scan
Their sense of calm and confidence erodes

Ella's infected too
Apparently, the bugs want her to
Embroil Luke in a battle for control

Abby's views are so extreme
Since she joined the space bug team
So Laurel knows these bugs are on a roll

A tender moment there when Laurel thinks that Gareth's dead
Gustav plays The Cars and tapes red Solo cups around his head

I've never seen two grown men share a candy bar like that
Have you no sense of decency? My god, you monsters, not the cat.

Watch BrainDead on Mondays at 10/9c on CBS and stream episodes on CBS All Access.
