”WEIRD SCIENCE”
by: Oingo Boingo

From MY HEART and from my hand
Why don’t people UNDERSTAND
MY INTENTIONS 

Weird Science
Plastic tubes and pots and pans
Bits and pieces and
MAGIC from the hand
We’re makin’

(Weird science)

Things I’ve NEVER SEEN before
Behind bolted doors

TALENT and IMAGINATION
(Weird science)
NOT what teacher said to do
Makin’ DREAMS come TRUE
LIVING tissue, warm flesh (Weird science)
Plastic tubes and pots and pans
Bits and pieces 

(Bits of)
MY CREATION… Is it REAL?
It’s my creation… My creation (Is it “real” or not?). 

(Weird science)

MAGIC and TECHNOLOGY
Voodoo dolls and chants
Electricity We’re makin’

(Weird science)

FANTASY and MICROCHIPS
Shooting from the hip
Something DIFFERENT
We’re MAKING‘
 (Weird science)

Pictures from a magazine
Diagrams and charts
MENDING BROKEN HEARTS (Weird science)
Something like a recipe
Bits and pieces (and)

 (Bits of) my creation…
Is it real?
  It’s my creation… I DO NOT KNOW
No hesitation…
No heart of gold
Just flesh and blood… I do not know
Why don’t people understand
From my heart and from my hand
MAGIC and TECHNOLOGY [voodoo dolls and chants]
 Weird Science

Things we never seen before [behind open doors]
Not what teacher said to do
Bits and pieces (and)

(Bits of) my creation…
Is it real? 
It’s my creation… I do not know
No hesitation… No heart of gold
Just flesh and blood… I do not know
It’s my creation
From my heart and from my hand
Why don’t people understand
 My intentions . . . .
Oooh, weird
