about

A song about Cain, Abel and the twin paradox.

lyrics

Now Cain said to Abel gotta listen to me,
While we’re soarin’ past the king of Cuba
I got a little patch of heaven at the edge of my sleeve,
with the gamma that we’re extra fond of,

It’s been a long, long century, the planet’s been buried
an eternity can last for a while,
So keep calm and carry out solutions are varied.
Shorter time can make the journey worthwhile.

Well now the times are telling we can be loud and satiate.
Girl, put your mini-skirt on,
Half mast your freak flag that constitutes a little
the same old plea just rambling on.
We were never normal people, but be careful not to show it off
Cause Momma don’t allow that you see.
And as the years go rolling on, you’ll still be in my pocket
save that little patch of heaven for me.

Now Cain looked at Abel with an eyebrow uplifted
said I think I’ll be around for a span.
Anything you want it, oh you think you got it
it’s a puzzle of us sons of a man.
Now your little patch of happiness may cause you some problems,
some discrepancies you just can’t rely.
An eye for an eye, a tooth for a planet
a solution you can’t oversupply.
