I got a solution to your problem
If you got a problem with your game
i will tell you the answer
I will whisper them and you will yell my name

I have some hydrochloric acid
I might just melt away your brain
I know it's confusing
but yeah i know that you heard what I said

Stand back, I'm gonna try science
I'm gonna do it just for you
Stand back I'm gonna try science
Bitches don't know about my test tube!

Keeps me on my toes
but scientologists
make me want to punch them
in the nose

think your design is intelligent
give them some more funding
but boy don't you wonder where that money went

stand back
I'm gonna try science
I'm gonna give Einstein a bad name
stand back
I'm gonna try science
if this doesn't work, back to the drawing board again

Mix up some more chemistry
to explode behind your eyes
how it works is a mystery
that it works at all is the best surprise

I will lift your heart up against gravity
my friction will work against your plain
we will wonder why it's so strange
to be in each others orbits again


So i pray to an empty god
who shines some sun down on my soul
I wonder if I can read or write
the wonder that I know

And i walk up to the face of him
I pull out all my instruments
I'll bring back enough evidence
To prove my mind is finally out of reach

And I know
the molar weight
of all your sins

and I know
I can calculate
everywhere you've been

And I know
that meaning
is elusive
when the night is over
and I'm goin home
and you're goin home with him

Stand back I'm gonna try science
Stand back, I'm gonna bring it down
stand back I'm gonna try science
gonna bring these chemicals around

Stand back I'm gonna try science
Cause I'me a man of action
Stand back I'm gonna try science
gonna watch this exothermic reaction
