You don't have to be a scientist to do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist to do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist to do experiments on your own heart

I had no place to put myself but I had lots of time
I had no place to put myself but I had lots of time
I had no place to put myself but I had lots of time so I threw out some past and made way for more future

Now I'm standing on the scene between my memories and dreams
Balanced on the seam between my memories and dreams
Floating down the stream between my memories and dreams and I see a better person waiting his turn to be me

And you don't have to be a scientist to do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist to do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist to do experiments on your own heart

Now I'm running down the runway in-between gigantic numbers
I'm running down the runway in-between gigantic numbers
I'm running down the runway in between gigantic numbers with my knapsack and a zero for halo

And my halo's got a hole in it so it don't keep me dry
My halo's got a hole in it so it don't keep me dry
My halo's got a hole in it so it don't keep me dry
But it's okay cause my brain is my heart's umbrella

And you don't have to be a scientist to do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist to do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist to do experiments on your own heart
I had a girl I had to leave I saw her face upon my sleeve
I had a girl I had to leave I saw her face upon my sleeve
I had a girl I had to leave I saw her face upon my sleeve it kept talking so I put it in the laundry

And as it spun and spun it tried to ask me what I'd done
And as it spun and spun it tried to ask me what I'd done
And as it spun and spun it tried to ask me what I'd done but I was gone on down the road out to Elaine's

'Cause you think patience is a virtue and what you don't know can't hurt you
And that events can change and shape us more than we can change ourselves
And that conscious attempt at growth is stupid and I should just relax
And be myself and even think it's arrogant to try

But you don't have to be a scientist to do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist to do experiments
You don't have to be a scientist to do experiments on your own heart
