Consumed with gravity, physics, space and time.
He sang about what the left brain did
When Einstein played his violin.
He said he wondered what would have come
Had Albert applied his theories to Love.
He sang about lives that attract and explode
About the principles of ‘to have and to hold’.
His song imagined a universe beyond
Where splintered worlds would fuse and get along
If time expended on nuclear theory
Had been equally spent on social engineering.
But my right lobe thought he missed the mark
When he didn’t connect the mind with the heart
I wanted a song about the gravity pull
Of Lust’s chain reaction on atomic fuel
I wanted to hear about Love’s mass and matter
And the forces that bring two bodies together
When theory and science and dreams coexist
And hearts fall in love at the speed of a kiss.
