about

Cover of Hank Green's "Protons and Neutrons" recorded for the Project 4 Awesome "Hank Covers" compilation in 2015. We took his acoustic love song for the universe and made it into something pretty spacey and gritty.

lyrics

Protons and neutrons,
The electron cloud scattered around,
Atoms packed and lattices stacked
Among billions and trillions of their kind,
And around trillions more they wind,
And we see that they are formed into this thing,
That I and those before me call a guitar string.

We think we see this world but we see a fraction of a fraction,
And even what we can see is just photonic reactions,
And we think that it's gorgeous and that no thing could compare,
But how could we ever know when there's so much more out there.

Protons and neutrons,
The electron cloud scattered around,
Carbon and oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen,
Forming two of the simplest proteins,
And stacked together into beta-pleated sheets,
And out from my finger grows this thing,
That I smack up and down this guitar string.

We think we see this world but we see a fraction of a fraction,
And even what we can see is just photonic reactions,
And we think that it's gorgeous and that no thing could compare,
But how could we ever know when there's so much more out there.
