The Band is a Scientist

lyrics

The band is a scientist, and they’ve got a hypothesis that
this show won’t be bad. The concert is the lab.
They will keep an open mind, prove the null, and falsify. Your
terms must be defined; use your double blind.

If they’re right, they just don’t know. Must experiment some more,
with an ample sample size. Play your songs and play them right.
Between you and me, the best results are when the hypothesis is false.
People say that you’re no good – go back to your practice room!

We’ll try to be objective. If music is the object, then
The ear is the container. It gets processed by the brain.
One day they’ll have a masterpiece, with world tours and LPs.
I’ve got the DVD playin’ on my flat screen.

In a few more short minutes, we’ll know what our research says.
If it turns out we were right, we would be a bit surprised.
Stand up by these speakers. Here, take a taste of this new serum.
Move your bodies all around. Let us find what will be found.

This is a placebo. You should not be dancing.
If you are moving, something was confounding.
This is a placebo. You should still have the sickness.
If we have cured it, something must have happened.

Hey, alright, it’s proven now. Record companies calling now
to sell the product on the market, and they know the world wants it.
Yes, alright, it’s proven now. Pharmacies are calling now
to sell the product on the market, and they know the world wants it.
This is how the music’s made: formulae for meeting taste.
Write a song by guess and test it – that’s the scientific method.
This is how the cure is found, so join the sample in your town.
You could be part of the research! You could help advance the theory!
