Fission Fragment

lyrics

Poison engage let down and charge on through
This thing won't trip 'til I do
What you call primary doesn't even touch the core
I want to keep my head afloat
But I can't find a reason to stay on the boat
And don't try to stop me cause I know there's something more
To the world we're on than the state of neutrons
I can't say nature cause you got the sun
I don't understand you but that's happened times before
And to top it off you'll see this song
As a sin wave function x meters long
It's just a hunch but a safe one to be sure

And I am nothing but a fission fragment
Just a blip on the screen of the old oscilloscope
I tell myself stick it out, don't relent
But the laws of science are making it hard to cope

You can't know now but you'll soon find
When you choose a new path you're gonna leave behind
A few you love while you're running with your fear
When you look real close it's just too bad
Each excuse you'll make in the name of ---
Seeking somewhere else what you could have learned right here
If it's any consolation I can see that now
And the time is gonna come for you to take your bow
Your sense of understanding was so real
I can't believe you take my shit
When you understand I can't quite quit
And I promise to return when my hands have found the wheel

But I'm still nothing but a fission fragment
Just a blip on the screen of the old oscilloscope
I tell myself stick it out don't relent
But every single year makes it harder just to cope

I'm not nothing I'm a fission fragment
I'm the blip on the screen of the old oscilloscope
I tell myself that a few won't relent
And I hope you never do cause without that I can't cope
