The Size of Matter Lyrics
Numeric truths evaluate
What we are conditioned to think
Signals, ideas, information
And messages all interlink
Taking account of images
Pushing accuracy to the brink

But errors exist
When gauging reality
And glitches persist
In actuality

The question lacks a conclusion
The answer continues if it fades
Attempting to pinpoint estimates
With edges sharper than blades
Compilations compute an average
As the constancy retrogrades

To understand the matter
It boils down to the parts
Disengage the factors
With figures off of the charts
To what degree can we take it?
What's the value of a face?
How do we define existence,
With numbers on a decimal place?

In the universe that's microscopic
Electrical forces overtake
Time is short, ticking faster
Few laws of gravity to break

As a pest securely fastens
To the surface as it crawls
Hanging upside down it clings
To the sheets, to the walls

In the universe beyond colossal
Immense spheres taking shape
Pulling mass toward the center
Gravity can't escape

Countless sums show a difference
Too numerous to neglect
The slightest change having impact
Results one would not expect
The tipping point is critical
Which leads to a drastic effect

To understand the matter
It boils down to the parts
Disengage the factors
With figures off of the charts
To what degree can we take it?
What's the value of a face?
How do we define existence,
With numbers on a decimal place?
