How far we've come

So lets call the two scientists A and D (for Dennis)...

Random idea I had was to make it so that the lever pulled at the start of the sketch only does half the process to make a quark. The other lever still needs to be pulled, and Dennis is trying to dissuade A from doing so (it gets pulled right at the end of the song).

I'm waking up at the start of the end of the world,
but its feeling just like every other morning before,
now i wonder what my life is going to mean if it's gone,
the cars are moving like a half a mile an hour and I
started staring at the passengers who're waving goodbye
can you tell me what was ever really special about me all this time

but i believe the world is burning to the ground
oh well i guess we're gonna find out
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come
Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
oh well, i guess, we're gonna pretend,
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come

i think it turned ten o'clock but i don't really know
then i can't remember caring for an hour or so
started crying and i couldn't stop myself
i started running but there's no where to run to
i sat down on the street and took a look at myself
said where you going man you know the world is headed for hell
say your goodbyes if you've got someone you can say goodbye to

i believe the world is burning to the ground
oh well i guess we're gonna find out
let's see how far we've come (right now)
let's see how far we've come

Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
oh well, i guess, we're gonna pretend,
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come

its gone gone baby its all gone
there is no one on the corner and there's no one at home
it was cool cool, it was just all cool
now it's over for me and it's over for you
well its gone gone baby its all gone
there's no one on the corner and there's no one at home
well it was cool cool, it was just all cool
now it's over for me and it's over for you

i believe the world is burning to the ground
oh well i guess we're gonna find out
let's see how far we've come
let's see how far we've come
Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
oh well, i guess, we're gonna pretend,
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
D: Sure we know all our physics, calculations and stuff
But can we push the boundaries of science too far
Now I wonder if a quark can ever really be kept *pause* by itself
A: But we are making science progress at the speed of sound
Just when you think that all we know is all there is to be found
can you tell me why we shouldn't go on cutting our slice of history

D: Coz I believe this quark cannot be contained
A: Won't you, just think, of what could be gained
Let's see how far we've come
D: Do you know what we’ve done?
A: We made, a leap, of knowledge there's no doubt
D: So what, about, when it gets out?
A: Let’s see how far we’ve come




But we’ve never got to subatomical






D: But I don’t that this is gonna go well
A: We'll save the world or send it to hell
Let's see how far we've come
D: Oh God what have we done?



A: Let's see how far we've come
D: I think I need some rum

B: Just drone, drone, these guys make me groan
They argue and they bicker like old men in a home
It's cruel, cruel, to listen to this drool,
It's so painful for me, is it painful for you?
They moan, moan, rivaling a crone
They make you hope that we are hit by a freak cyclone
I see fool, fool, like a stupid mule
They won't shut up for me, will they shut up for you?

D: I believe that this could be a mistake
A: Shut up, you're fat, go eat some cake
Let's see how far we've come
D: You'll kill us all you son (running between lines) of a
Bitch/A: I believe the future's waiting for us there
D: So what, i guess, we'll rely on prayer
A: Let's see how far we've come
D: Say something else less dumb
A: You've got a massive bum
D: Not as big as your mum
A: You take that back you scum
D: I will never succumb
A: Just let go of my thumb
D: Not if you were my chum
A: Let's see how far we've come (pulls the lever)
