Lyrics

Science

These streets look different in the sun
I could forget where I came from
The infinite alleys of the in-between
I told you my dream and what I think it means

But you had to make it a science
You had to make it a science
You had to break it all

Do do do do do do

You kept me up till 4 again
Watering roses in your hungry head
A mother’s religion and a father’s fist
Had an unintended consequence

And you had to make it a science
You had to make it a science
You had to break it all

You said you read it in a magazine
The myth and the secondhand story
And you had to make it a science
You had to make it a science
You had to break it all

Do do do do do do

I saw a sweater from the Golden Age
On plastic shoulders in a plastic case
What have we come to after all you made
Osiris rising on a broken stage

Cause you had to make it a science
You had to make it a science
You had to break it all

Do do do do do do
