It's poetry in motion
She turned her tender eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony
Mm, but she blinded me with science
"She blinded me with science!"
And failed me in biology
When I'm dancing close to her
"Blinding me with science, science!"
I can smell the chemicals
"Blinding me with science, science!"
"Science!"
"Science!"
Mm, but it's poetry in motion
And when she turned her eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony
Mm, but she blinded me with science
And failed me in geometry
When she's dancing next to me
"Blinding me with science, science!"
"Science!"
I can hear machinery
"Blinding me with science, science!"
"Science!"
It's poetry in motion
And now she's making love to me
The spheres're in commotion
The elements in harmony
She blinded me with science
"She blinded me with science!"
And hit me with technology
"Good heavens Miss Sakamoto, you're beautiful!"
I
I don't believe it!
There she goes again!
She's tidied up, and I can't find anything!
All my tubes and wires
And careful notes
And antiquated notions
But! It's poetry in motion
And when she turned her eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony
Mm, but she blinded me with science
"She blinded me with, with science!"
She blinded me with

    General Comment:I must say, I really disagree with MikeSty. I don't believe the song was made to be analyzed that much. It's just a simple infatuation with a lab assistant, put together to make one crazy song.

    General Comment:I think it's pretty straightforward really... a scientist falls in love for the first time, and all his scientific knowledge and investigations lose all meaning to him as his emotional side is awakened. Scientists are stereotypically thought of as being firm and emotionless; this song is about a scientist of that nature being awakened to his emotional side through love.

    General Comment:I remember listening to this before I understood sexual innuendos, then listening to it later and appreciating it on a whole new level.

    But either way, I love this song to pieces.

    A nerd loves a woman who makes fun of his size and uses toys on him, but he's so infatuated with her he forgets himself ("tidied up and I can't find anything" . . . "antiquated notions") . . . she tricks him into changing despite himself.

    General Comment:CuteSparnkina, it would appear that way. The first 12 times you listen to it, that's just what it says.

    I am being completely serious - I have come to realize this song is about infatuation, uncontrollable desire and rape. 'science' is a parallel to 'pepper spray' and 'technology' is a parallel to a "baseball bat" or something to that effect.

    I think these lyrics have several mistakes in them, but regardless, "smelling" of chemicals is an obvious reference. So yes, while he has an absurd infatuation with his "lab assistant" or whatever you'd like to call her, the song takes it a step further by subtly implying that his actions towards her were met with ferocity and he is dillusional.

    General Comment:Im sorry, my previous post was a bit plain...let me redecide on what this is about, because now its SO obvious its funny..

    I agree heavily with SarunaAlbahr.

    An older man has an infatuation for his young, beautiful and clearly intelligent female lab assisstant.
