Dark Matter

I’m wakin’ up early
to a big surprise
that big ole sun is
tryin’ to rise
but there’s somethin’ weird
goin’ on around town
every time it goes up
it just comes back down
so I roll up my sleeves
and I jump right in
dark matter
comin’ on me again

let me guess
I can figure it out
you put a ship in a bottle
now you can’t get it out
the eye of a needle
and a 2×4
seems like nothin’ really fits
together anymore
it’s a mess
and I don’t know what to do
dark matter
I depending on you

Paul Revere
did a midnight ride
meetin’ Emma Goldman
by the riverside
it was almost a great
and a glorious day
but they couldn’t remember
what they were supposed to say
so they took out their guitars
and they started to sing
dark matter
gettin’ into everything

Stephen Hawking
said to Neil Degrass
“this theoretical stuff
is a pain in the ass”
says Neil
“what are you tryin’ to say?”
Steve says, “I’ll get back to ya
later today…
it’s just that everything
would make more sense
if dark matter would just
get off the fence”

just because you can’t see it
does that mean it isn’t there
dark matter everywhere

I fell in love
with a friend of mine
she was walkin’
on a tight rope line
and I was crawlin’ on my
hands and knees
we ran into each other
said “excuse me please
do I know you?
was this meant to be?
or is this just dark matter
messin’ around with me?”

I took a leap
and I went so high
I blew a hole
right through the sky
and I swam like a fish
in ethereal brine
till I left the whole damn
solar system behind
ask me why I’m leavin’
I’ll try to make it clear
there’s just too much
dark matter around here
