LYRICS

A quark can never exist by itself in isolation
Something very odd happens when you try to sepparate them
The energy it takes, to break up those two best friends
is just enough to create two more to join back up with them

A photon has no mass...and thus travels at light speed
If you're able imagine going that fast, and if you try I think you might be
You'd be emitted and absorbed in the exact same instant
even if you travelled from a star 13 billion light years distant.

[CGF - in various orders - standard tuning]
THE UNIVERSE IS WEIRD
I'm kinda freaking out
What is this all about
Infinite unbounded sets
and hadronizing gluon jets
We'll never understand
All of what we have at hand
At least that's what I fear

An electron has a strong charge, as strong as a proton
And a tiny mass but not nonexistant like the photon
You might want to take a seat now, cause this might hurt your mind
It has mass and charge, yes, but not, apparently, a size

There's a lot of stuff all around you right now
Your chair your friend your planet and your sister's neighbor's cow
Mundane mass and energy is all we know and undestand
but it's only 4% of what the universe has at hand

I was driving in a van with my brother and I said
John, hey, guess what, like, dude, NO EDGE!
Because the universe does not exist in any way we can conceive it
No center, no edge, no none of that, whether or not you can believe it

Once upon a time, in a gassy liquid stew
A molecule was like "hey, I turned me into you"
This may be the biggest mystery of all the ones in which we dwell
How the universe created a tool with which to know itself
