Freeze Your Brain is the fourth song of Act One of the Off-Broadway musical, Heathers. In this song, Veronica runs into J.D. at the local 7-11 before she heads to Ram’s party. JD begins to tell her why he finds comfort in a 7-11, while also revealing some of his past to her. Veronica also asks about J.D.’s mom which he then answers, “When mom was alive, we lived halfway normal…” which J.D. is letting Veronica a little into his personal life.

Heathers- The Musical - Freeze Your Brain (lyrics)


I’ve been through ten high schools
They start to get blurry
No point planting roots
Cause you’re gone in a hurry
My dad keeps two suitcases packed in the den
So it’s only a matter of when

I don’t learn the names
Don’t bother with faces
All I can trust is this concrete oasis
Seems every time I’m about to despair
There’s a 7/11 right there

Each store is the same from Las Vegas to Boston
Linoleum aisles that I love to get lost in
I pray at my alter of slush
Yeah, I live for that sweet frozen rush

Freeze your brain
Suck on that straw
Get lost in the pain
Happiness comes when everything numbs
Who needs cocaine?
Freeze your brain
Freeze your brain

Care for a hit?

Does your mommy know you eat all that crap?

Not anymore

When mom was alive
We lived half way normal
Now it’s just me and my dad
We’re less formal

I learned to cook pasta
I learned to pay rent
Learned the world doesn’t owe you a cent

You’re planning your future
Veronica Sawyer
You’ll go to some college
And marry a lawyer

But the sky’s gonna hurt when it falls
So you’d better start building some walls

Freeze your brain
Swim in the ice
Get lost in the pain
Shut your eyes tight
‘Til you vanish from sight
Let nothing remain

Freeze your brain
Shatter your skull
Fight pain with more pain
Forget who you are
Unburden your load
Forget in six weeks
You’ll be back on the road
When the voice in your head
Says “You’re better off dead”
Don’t open a vein

Just freeze your brain
Freeze your brain
Go on and freeze your brain
