"The Scientists" as written by Jeffery Dimpsey, Tim Lash, Bryan St. Pere and Matt Talbott....
Electrified and lit up by an outline of herself
Smiling now as only she can be.
She said I made some new connections to astound them all
In ways we've never dreamed about

Her lovely hand is glowing from the light inside itself
From soaking in the esters stacked for miles on a single shelf
Holding my eyes still so she can see
If all the superundercover custom hybrids got to me

It's too much
You're too late
I want to see it all again
She says eep this benzene ring around your finger

And think of me when everything you wanted starts to end
And I saw living clusters form in pools beneath her feet
Invertebrates that only she can see
And I said what on earth are all these ampuls for

She says exactly, we're not gunna wait around here anymore
Systems back down slow, watch the dust cloud resend
And I will keep you. I will keep you till the end
Set your head down low, watch my ears ring

I will take care of you. I will take care of everything
Systems back down slow, watch the dust cloud resend
And I will keep you. I will keep you till the end
Set your head down low, watch my ears ring

I will take care of you. I will take care of everything
It's too much
You're too late
I piloted my distance to the ground

And I think I see myself again through a pinhole
But the pinhole captures all of you
And the pinhole captures all of you
It's too much

You're too late

    General CommentI like the idea of two scientists testing chemicals out on each other, but i would like to elaborate. There two scientists who are desperate for a break through with their research, "smiling now as only she can be. she said "i made some new connections to astound them all". Shes smiling because shes finally discovered that scientific breakthrough (whatever it may be). Turns out she went mad from working too hard to achieve the discovery and the actual breakthrough isn't a breakthrough at all but rather a self inflicted science experiment involving ester and other dangerous chemicals. Her lab partner starts to go blind from being exposed to too many chemicals hence the lines "invertebrates that only she can see", "i want to see it all again" and "keep this benzene ring around your finger". Benzene is used as a distilling agent in many chemicals to prevent people from actually going blind. Through all this madness that is taking place and reoccurring chemical explosions leaving dust clouds behind, he continues to love his insane partner and he tells her that he will take care of her. Unfortunately, "its too much" and hes "too late" to save them from the destructive environment that she created.

    General CommentPretty sure the last stanza is:

    "piloted my bedspins to the ground"

    not

    "you piloted my distance to the ground"

    My Interpretationthis is what i hear in the fourth stanza:

    "docile living lusters forming pools beneath her feet
    invertebrates that only she can see
    and i say 'what on earth are all these engines for?'
    she says 'exactly, we're not gonna wait around here anymore.'"

    "she" turns his question into a pun with her answer. it makes sense to me considering the next line:

    "systems back down slow watch the dust cloud rescind."

    like a space shuttle's engines & the settling debris in the lauch zone? maybe i'm wrong.

    General CommentThis song is actaully about how there is a couple and they are both scientists. Her lab is upstairs and his lab is downstairs. They are both making wierd drugs and they test them on each other and they are both running up and down saying you take this and you take that. So put the lyrics into that story and it all makes sense.
