Hank: So you know what? The universe is a pretty weird place.

"Well, a quark can never exist by itself in isolation
Something very odd happens when you try to separate them
The energy it takes to break up those two best friends
Is just enough to create two more to join back up with them
 
And a photon has no mass and thus it travels at light speed
If you could imagine going that fast and if you try I think you might be
You'd be emitted and absorbed both in the exact same instant
Even if you traveled from a place 13 billion light years distant.
 
'Cause the universe is weird
I'm kinda freaking out
What the heck is this all about?
Infinite unbounded sets and hadronizing gluon jets and
You'll never understand half of what we have at hand
At least that's what I fear
'Cause the universe is weird
 
An electron has a strong charge as strong as a proton
And a tiny mass but not nonexistent like the photon and
You might want to take a seat now 'cause this might blow your mind
It has mass and charge, but not, apparently, a size
 
And there's a lot of stuff all around you right now
Your chair, your friend, your planet, and your sister's neighbor's cow
And all that mundane mass and energy is all we know and understand
But it's only 4% of what the universe has at hand
 
'Cause the universe is weird

H & Joe: I'm kinda freaking out
What the heck is this all about?
Infinite unbounded sets and hadronizing gluon jets and
We'll never understand half of what we have at hand
At least that's what I fear

H: 'Cause the universe is weird
 
Well, I was driving in a van with my brother and I said,
Hey, John, guess what, like, dude, no edge!
Because the universe does not exist in any way we can conceive it
No center, no edge, no none of that, whether or not you can believe it
 
And once upon a time in a gassy liquid stew
A molecule was like "Hey, I turned me into you"
This may be the biggest mystery of all the ones in which we dwell
How the universe created a tool with which to know itself!
 
'Cause, 'cause the universe, 'cause the universe is weird
'Cause the universe is weird

H & J: I'm kinda freaking out
What the heck is this all about?
Infinite unbounded sets and hadronizing gluon jets and

H & J & A: We'll never understand half of what we have at hand
At least that's what I fear

H: 'Cause the universe is weird
Oh, yeah,
Oh, it's so weird
It's so freaking weird
Why in the universe
Is the universe so weird
It's freaking freaking me out it's so weird
Why in the universe
Why in the universe
Is the universe so weird

J & A: So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird

H & J: So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird

H: This is weird
I'm kinda freaking out
What the heck is this all about?
Infinite unbounded sets and hadronizing gluon jets and
We'll never understand half of what we have at hand
At least that's what I fear

J: So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird
So weird, so weird

H: 'Cause the universe is weird"

Yeah! Right?
