EYNMAN LEAP - lyrics

I don’t really care
That I won the Nobel prize
I’d rather close my eyes
And try to get some sleep tonight
Take it off the hook
Don’t bother me again with all this nonsense

You memorized the books
You memorized the words
But you don’t know what they mean
I think that’s absurd
and that’s the reason why
Brazilian science is a fucking joke

There’s a master of quantum physics
By the name of Samuel becket
One day he will leap into me
Right before I give a lecture

The atomic bomb
Is right here in this box
This combination lock
It’s not enough to stop
Somebody like me
from breaking in and reading all your secrets

what a worthless bitch
what a stupid whore
I’m not buying her a drink
I don’t do that anymore
She’s still coming home with me
Because All I have to do is ask her

He says “oh boy”, surprised to find
He’s Shaking hands with albert Einstein
His friend Al’s a hologram
That’s why the car can pass right thru him

Teach me how to draw
Show me how to shade
Somebody will pay me
To draw these naked ladies
I’ll put it in a frame
So you can hang it in your office

you think that you’re so smart
Well, I am not convinced
What took you many years
I learned in fifteen minutes
This map of a cat
Will show me the location of the whiskers

Dr. Becket is changing lives
He Answers to a higher power
Setting right what once went wrong
He hopes his next leap will be his leap home
