lyrics

Our Test Tube Universe

A man of science shakes his head
He doesn’t understand exactly what he has
A micro-blip within a quark
A little fractal of a limitless expanse

A small flicker in the glass
Precise instruments measuring more mass
He overlooks the misty flask
The meter rises to the max, then shatters

How do we see a world that’s not our own?
Maybe a few will get to see it shown
How do we let our god know that we’re here?
Why do we think that our god really cares?

He tries to re-create his data
He writes equations till he’s blue in the face
His peers know of his reputation
His far-out ideas are not exactly embraced

Do we look toward science for the answers?
Can we explain everything with some math
Every revolution goes by faster
Are we prepared to leave our beliefs in the past?

How do we see a world that’s not our own?
Only the few will get to see it shown
How do we let our god know that we’re here?
What makes us think that our god really cares?

How do we know that we are not alone?
So much we take for granted is unknown
Maybe the smallest specks He sees are stars
Though He created us inside of jars

He doesn’t understand his data
Commencing quantum trial two hundred twenty-two
His test is still derived from beta
It’s just an echo of his creator

How do we see a world that’s not our own
Only a part of our perception shows
How do we know that our god knows we’re here?
Why do we think that our god really cares?
