Breakfast of Neutrinos
C. Dore/ J.Littman

In 1969 I slept all through my science class
Dreaming of the summer
And the boy who cuts the grass
The atmosphere of boredom hung like smog on Tokyo
Heavy with equations it passed so slowly
But somehow something remained although I’d retained
Almost zero
The only thing that I heard, a curious word
Neutrino

A scientist in 1940 won the Nobel Prize
Predicting the existence of a particle of no size
A shady particle it rarely interacts with ordinary matter
Proven fact
They’re moving faster than light, they’re travelling right on through you
They say they have no effect and yet I suspect that they do

Chorus
And you were like a Neutrino
Only passing through
But you, you will never know
I feel you in my heart, feel you in my bones
I feel you in my blood, feel you on my skin

In a time when love was free and pretty boys would come and go
I put on the uniform and we danced slowly
It was unwritten, but then everything was cool
No-one tied to anyone
We were beautiful
But science knows I’m a fool
Inevitable. You drew me
And as we lay in the dark a merciless spark
Cut through me

And is love just nothing unless it’s returned
Is it zero?
A scientist never been kissed won’t tell you
But I know

‘Cause you were like a Neutrino
Only passing through
And you, you will never know
I feel you in my heart, feel you in my bones
I feel you in my blood, feel you on my skin
