Reality folds
Massive great crack
A mirror world
The black hole exerts her attraction
My vector collapses its whole

Atom explodes
All known parameters broken
Change is the only equation
A piece is a part of the whole

If you come back to my house
I'll make some coffee and some toast
If you come back to my house
I'll make some coffee and some toast

There's nowhere to go
Fall through the holes in the fabric
If you have magic then use it
Nothing to lose but control

Reality falls
Every known law must be broken
Every defence is just token
Some pieces are part of the whole

If you come back to my house
I'll make some coffee and some toast
If you come back to my house
I'll make some coffee and some toast

    General CommentTim Booth often described this as a 'scientific love song'; it's about a scientist who tries to impress a girl by blinding her with science when really he just wants to take her home for coffee and toast. Similar subject matter to Thomas Dolby's "She Blinded Me With Science".

    This is one of my favorite of all the later James songs, IMO it should have made the cut for the Pleased To Meet You album, possibly even been a single. Maybe they were afraid of getting sued by Blondie for the tune (listen carefully, the tune of the verse is almost identical to Blondie's "Sunday Girl")!
