the scientist said, "this heart is just an organ
"like anything else, it has its purpose:
"circulating my blood round and round again"
not one for moonlit walks or frivolously lengthy talks
or similies involving the atlantic
the scientist said, "i'm not much of a romantic"
& when the scientist, he fell in love
he said, "these chemicals are complicated
"this chemistry is overrated"
the scientist snapped his medical gloves
turned to the rats in their cage
said, "i have knowledge; wisdom's coming with age"
the scientist said, "this is quite unlike me
"but recently i-- that is to say--
"well, i can't help but notice your eyes are like the deep blue sea"
the scientist grew roses in test tubes and vials
and the scientist smiled a carefree smile
'cause the scientist knew the statistics
knew he'd get hurt, knew that love can die
but the scientist said, "anything's worth a try"
No spoilers from me to anyone who happens to see this before listening to the full podcast, but MADAM DIRECTOR HITS DIFFERENT. I love it too much for it not to be my favorite track, but the whole album, even every album is life-changing. jackthegoalie
