British Sea Power – Atom (Main) lyrics

I'll be the first to admit
This is a bright but haunted age
I just don't know now, now
I just can't say, hey, hey

When you get down
Down to the heart and the bones of it
That’s when it breaks, you know
That’s when it falls apart
But that’s the prize now

Oh, caveat emptor, open the atom’s core
But that’s the prize now
Oh, caveat emptor, open the atom’s core
Oh, caveat emptor, open the atom’s core, oh

Oh, oh, I just don’t get it

And you keep slipping
Down the surface of things
I just can’t take it now
I just can’t wait for more

When you get down
Down to the sub atomic part of it
That’s when it breaks, you know
That’s when it falls apart
Oh, caveat emptor, open the atom’s core, oh, oh

Oh, oh, I just don't get it, get it
Oh, I just don’t get it, get it
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it
I just don't get it, oh

No, I, I just don't get it
No, I, I just don't get it
Just don’t get it, get it

Get it, get it, get it, get it
Get it, get it, get it, get it
Get it, get it, oh, get it

What’s wrong with you?
Hey, lad
Hey, lad
