Kickstarter reward for Nich Maragos, 2012

lyrics

"Yes! This thunderstorm is just what I need to bring my creation life! LIFE!"

Your career starts with a dream
That becomes a brilliant scheme
When you first acquire the rudimentary skills
Soon you're turning lead to gold
And making space's fabric fold
And breathing life into the dead to get your thrills

You may say it can't be done
But baby, I am number one
And the things that I can do
Prove the facts I know are true!

MAD SCIENCE
We do it 'cause we can
MAD SCIENCE
It's all part of the plan
MAD SCIENCE
Yes, we have got the tools
Consequence means nothing when you learn to break the rules

"Steady, now. We wouldn't want to scare the poor creature. Look into its eyes; there's a light behind them. Yes! It's intelligent! It's learning! It's learning! Yes!"

People first will be impressed
They will call you a success
Put your name on some important-sounding prize
But when it starts to leave a scar
They will say you've gone too far
And they'll call your work a dirty pack of lies

You may say my proofs are wrong
You may say my tests are flawed
You can shove it up your flask
I'm too busy playing God!

MAD SCIENCE
We do it 'cause we can
MAD SCIENCE
It's all part of the plan
MAD SCIENCE
Yes, we have got the tools
Consequence means nothing when you learn to break the rules

Losing your patents to idiots in suits
You run from the world and its trivial pursuits
Living in exile with henchmen and minions
Your work's too important for outside opinions

In a castle far away
You plot revenge throughout the day
Putting touches on your horrid master plan
Those tiny peons would not learn
Which is why they'll have to burn
Progress cannot wait upon the will of man

You may say it can't be done
But baby, I am number one
And the things that I can do
Prove the facts I know are true
Don't pretend you're not intrigued
You're as twisted as the rest
You might mock me in the day
But at night you are obsessed!

MAD SCIENCE
We do it 'cause we can
MAD SCIENCE
It's all part of the plan
MAD SCIENCE
Yes, we have got the tools
Consequence means nothing when you learn to break the rules

"Okay, back to work."
