the animals are deafening me.
what do the children to for fun?
the whim of a science man and the day the destroyed the sun.
a simple hypothetical.
we've got a job to do. c
alculated diagrams and plans you can't disprove
a simple hypothetical.
we've got a job to do.
logically we cannot fail with elements and test tubes.
a complex hypothetical.
we've got a job to do.
innovate and ascertain and theory will make it truth.
lab coats, check. oxygen, check, check. photographs, check.
we've got a job to do.
this formula.
x plus y plus x plus all of my time.
this could be ours.
hold your head up high.
because we'll be remember as inspired.
i think i've made an error here.
the figures don't align.
huge miscalculations on nobody's behalf but mine.
my loyal apprentice get out right now. this formula.
x plus y plus x plus all of my time.
i think i was wrong.
hold your head up high.
because we'll be remember for this crime.
i think i was wrong.
throw your lab coat down.
my precious ideas are destroying us now.
they've destroyed us

    General Commentthis is about trying to remember what your life was like before you set out on your career, starting where you decide what you want to be when you grow up. you figure you'll do something you enjoy (what do the children to for fun?,) but it turns out that you don't enjoy your career, and then when you start not enjoying it you look on what your life was as a kid.
    it's also about how logic isn't always right and how people judge you on your past.
