Why don't we just try
It can't be hard to send a child kicking, screaming, into this world
Be it a boy or girl, we'll never know
Either way, the clock is set to explode...

I'll go on the record to say these creatures are easily among the most feared on Earth
For a nucleus inside a cell, we'll circumvent the laws of nature, the laws of love
Born inside a house that seems so filled with ghosts
They're taking reservations at the door
I guess it's safe to say we'll all end up in the
fetal position on the floor

A nuclear power reaction
Jerry-rigged with low-grade uranium
A sulphuric love affair using pixy stix and bubblegum
We're splitting the atom

The day that all the romance died
We cried and cried, as if it would never return
We found another way inside those hallowed halls
By spilling the ashes from the urn

Forever giving up our nights to howl away
And all say "goodnight" to the moon
I think it's safe to say we'll always launch attacks
Three weeks too soon

A nuclear power reaction, scout-knot tied to synthesized beryllium
Pulling life from the thin air, we're freaking out and speaking in tongues
We're splitting the atom

A nuclear power reaction with a side of weapons-grade plutonium
A sulphuric love affair using pixy stix and bubblegum
We're splitting the atom
We're splitting the atom
