So Many Dynamos – The Formula lyrics

The faultline slipped, the faultline slipped,
The faultline slipped and my knees keep shaking.
The Arch collapsed, the Arch collapsed,
But I still see it's shadow cast over the river

Keep your head from falling
Keep your fragile chest from collapsing
When it's finally said with conviction that the formula doesn't work.

If the glaciers melt, the water will engulf ourselves,
And every book on every shelf is invalid if the formula doesn't work:

And the formula doesn't work.
And the formula doesn't work.
No, the formula doesn't work.
And the formula doesn't work.

Keep your hands together
Keep your eyelids clenched so tightly
With the backup plan: so flawless
How can everything end like this?

So here it is:
When the lava burns our wives and kids
We'll be certain the hypothesis is faulty
If the formula doesn't work
And the formula doesn't work.

Mountains are big and they all look fake
We'll be nothing but ashes in their wake
Now we know that it's worse than we'd ever think
We evolve, we adapt, or become extinct

The clouds are epic and the sky is colossal
But in a million years, we'll all just be fossils

Mountains are big and they all look fake
Evolution is such a hard habit to break
It was heavy but it wasn't lethal
It was sketchy but it wasn't illegal

Glaciers will melt and the land will slide
And we can say we tried, but

The faultline slipped, the faultline slipped,
The faultline slipped and my knees keep shaking
The seismic waves, the seismic waves,
Are crashing into the surface, breaking
The plates collide, the plates collide,
And we're all just fossils in the making
The Arch collapsed, the Arch collapsed,
But I still see it's shadow cast over the river

There's a place in the atmosphere
Where the sound waves go that no one can hear
Where the words you speak that no one should know
Where'd you think that your prayers go?

There's a place in the atmosphere
Where the sound waves go when they disappear
Where the words you speak that no one should know
Where'd you think that your prayers go?
