Quantum Physics/Remarkable medley (Paul Curran Presents “Live at 924 Gilman 1-17-04”) (click for MP3 file)

You may think there’s such a thing as matter
But if you look at the deepest levels
You might see a billion interactions
But there’s nothing there.

I think it’s the shame of quantum physics....

Logic seems to be so fundamental
Like it must be most of what is nature
But if you apply it to an atom
It just falls apart.

I think it’s the shame of quantum physics
And they have the nerve to call that science
When it’s only faith, uncertain of anything at all!

Now we’re in a universe expanding
And it might expand until forever
Or it might collapse back into nothing.
But what did the Big Bang bang on?

I think it’s the shame of quantum physics
And they have the nerve to call that science
When it’s only faith, uncertain of anything at all!


(medley continues with “Remarkable”)

I met a man / Who only had two hands
And only had two eyes
And so he felt shortchanged.

He told me how bored he was
With his own day-to-day.
But I know the desperate things
Only truly lonely people say.

I met a girl / Who lived in this world
And only in this world
And so she felt too plain.

She told me about her plan
To one day get away
But I know the desperate things
Only truly lonely people say.

These are unremarkable people
People just like you and me.
People who feel left out of life
Cheated by their inescapable normalcy.

Wish I could say / They got together one day
And had a happy ending
But that would be untrue.

They both lived their quiet lives,
Sad and all alone.
They might have been happier
If only they had known:

They were both remarkable people,
People just like you and me.
People who want more out of life
But feel held back by inescapable normalcy.
