Piano Man

Based on Neil Cicierega’s tweet of the chorus.

It’s 4 AM on a Wed-nes-day
The superconductor’s online
You’re sitting alone in your teleport pod
And right now you’re feelin’ just fine
You tell your assistant “okay, flip the switch,
I’m not really sure just quite how
But in moments I’ll race to the opposite place
Where that old piano sits now”

La la la, di da da
Lla la, di da da da dum

Show us your keys, you’re the Piano Man
Pose like a baby grand
Cause we’re all in the mood for a chimera
And you are half-piano, half-man

Now sparks in the pod are intensifying
The cables are swinging about
And the atoms that make you are starting to move
And soon they’ll be on their way out
You say “Watch, we will see my conjectures are right!”
As the particles shine like the sun
And all of your quantum mechanics converge
As you and the piano are one

La la la, di da da
Lla la, di da da da dum

Show us your keys, you’re the Piano Man
Pose like a baby grand
Cause we’re all in the mood for a chimera
And you are half-piano, half-man

It’s a pretty good feat for a wed-nes-day
And you flutter your keys in a smile
’Cause you know your experiment was a success
You’ve exceeded your goal by a mile
And the lab, it sounds like a piano bar!
As you wiggle your oak-veneer feet
And you play up a storm in your newly-found form
Where Steinway and Cronenberg meet

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
