"You Yes You" as written by Merrill Martin Garbus and Nathaniel J Brenner....
The science is cold
Roughly one half or three quarters we're told
Communion is old
But what makes a community whole?

So much is invisible to me
So much I may not ever see
Who are you?
Who are you?
Who are you?
Who are you?

The science is cool
Twenty-three percent as a general rule
Generations pretend
Shut our eyes and hold our breath till it ends

Oh, my thoughts are not my own
But born of trauma deep in cellular stone
And who are you?
Who are you?

The science is cold
The science is cold

(It's okay, it's okay, all you gotta do is pay attention)

    General Comment"If home is where the heart is baby
    Then my home is inside you"

    General Comment"I don't need a linen room of diamonds
    a chicken shed would do."

    My goodness I love that line. We could live in absolute squalor, but as long as I was with you, I wouldn't mind. Beautiful. Ms. Garbus is amazingly talented.

    My InterpretationI think the lyrics actually go:

    "I was born to do it
    My daddy had enough so I put my back into it
    That man was born to do it too
    He didn’t have enough so he cannot sing for you"

    Which makes more sense to me. It's about how some people come from backgrounds where they are privileged enough pursue their dreams (in this case singing) but some people don't have that as an option. Even if they were born with the talent and the potential.
