It began in May, with a train wreck in Virginia;
A boxcar overturned and burst into flame.
A dark cloud formed made of hydrogen dioxide.
A Spotomatic Freeze was born that day.

Woah, woah; Spotomatic Freeze
(Repeat 2x)

Then it went South and it covered up Atlanta -
It rained toxic hail there for days.
Then it got smart, and it headed North to Washington;
Brought the whole damn country to its knees.

Woah, woah; Spotomatic Freeze
(Repeat 2x)

That's when the President called We Are Scientists
And we came to save the day.
We couldn't stop the freeze, so we sent it to Alaska
And as far as we know, it's still there today.

We all say

Woah, woah; Spotomatic Freeze
(Repeat 2x)

Woah, woah; Spotomatic Freeze
(Repeat 2x)

    General CommentThese guys are totally scientists. I'm serious, check out their website...they all are wicked smart. I think they are from New York². Never been there, but wanna go (and check these guys out). I've listened to them before they had any real records released, but they have totally matured and gotten hells better. But then again I like Ozma--a lot!

    General CommentWe Are Scientists are amazing. I am pretty sure they came from NYC. Thats where i got there first cd, and then i saw them in CA and got their second. Check them out, or download them, 'cause their music is what rock should be

    General CommentThey are actually orginally from several different parts of the States, and met in SoCal (if memory serves). They only recently moved to NYC for a record deal.

    General Commenta 'spotomatic freeze' is actually a camera freeze. but apparently its was written in the context that they actually made it up from two words they combined. thats whak. :)

    General CommentI guess this is about an imaginary disaster where there was a trainwreck in Virgnia, one of the boxcars combusted, and somehow produced Hydrogen Dioxide, which i guess polluted the atmosphere and caused a "spotomatic freeze". Then, it moved to Atlanta and there was like acid hail and I guess, in the end, not even We Are Scientists could save us from the Freeze, so they were like ah, screw it, just send it to Alaska! They did, and that's why Alaska's so cold. NOT BECAUSE OF ITS PLACE ON THE EQUATOR!! jk. But, yeah, this song doesn't make scientific sense, buuut that's ok! xD
