Scientific Method

lyrics

good ol' Bucky Fuller in 1934
built a car that ran on 3 wheels
it sat 10 people it was 21 feet long
shaped like a teardrop
it ran like a song
it got 30 to 40 miles to the galloon
unfortunately, efficiency at that time was not in fashion
there was no money to be made
in making things efficient
70 years later
science still sits backseat to big business
we got the means to do more than dream
of a better way of living
the future aint even there to see
if we aint first got the vision

I'm praying to the scientific method
gravity tends to teach a heavy lesson

sometimes I feel like a triangle in a square world
once in a while our sides intersect
but they mostly run parallel
I try to keep my mind well rounded
free of right and wrong angles
my star spangle is Star Trekish
world unity is my patriotic fetish
I salute the flag of the human nation
pray to the god of evolution
come on people we gots to grow up faster
going against each other is oh so passe
displaying my heart on my sleeve
cut me and blood I will bleed
red, white, and blue
and every other color too

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
