Displacement came in the form of you
In your space it rains when you move
And your algebra: your x and y
It contains no flaw: a man could cry
Your soul won't dock: your spirit's prancing
And your fulcrum rocks while you're dancing
But your magnet's pulled toward an awful match
A black hole that's dulled: dreams won't hatch

ETs crashland on earth 'cause you're here
The time machine's stalling and stuck in first gear
And off on its way to our present day
You threw off the pilot
Equipment's at bay

And my heart's enraged 'cause it's split in two
A computer page hacked into
And I abstract through time and space
If you saw the facts: me in his place
With the speed of light, you'd streak away
Hop a better flight: towards me you'd sway
But the pixels whip 'round in a daze
Then your picture skips, blinks out and fades

ETs crashland on earth 'cause you're here
The time machine's stalling and stuck in first gear
And off on its way to our present day
You threw off the pilot
Equipment's at bay

I watch you run: your body's diction
Newton's laws look like fiction
Like the odds we'll be a pair
Two divides in the equation
End result: you're an evasion
Math and science: they don't care

ETs crashland on earth 'cause you're here
The time machine's stalling and stuck in first gear
And off on its way to our present day
You threw off the pilot
Equipment's at bay

    General CommentA very intriguing paradox indeed! A mismatch of science and emotions that has enough logic to keep your mind at bay while your heart races through both anticipation and pain. The use of imagery in combining these two seemingly opposing forces (emotion and logic) is excellently portrayed in the lyrics: "The time machine's stalling and stuck in first gear.." The ultimate result is something more than just a synthesis of predictable equations as "math and science: they don't care." It leaves us to feel that even in the unknown there is hope and something else to be believed... a greater calling that makes it right in the end..
