about

When the Wonder-Nerds develop a time machine, they convince themselves that they are infallible, and above the laws of nature.

lyrics

The Box

(emptiness, start of tank drum noises)
C- According to Einstein’s field equation, this wormhole shouldn’t exist!
R- Why?
Z- First of all, the probably of two singularities forming in our universe and linking up through hyperspace is infinitesimal.
C- Secondly, the gravitational energy of any particles traveling through it, including ourselves, would make it collapse on itself in an instant!
Z- Something inside the wormhole must be emitting negative gravitational energy to hold it open...
C- Could it be the same Dark Energy responsible for the expanding Universe?
Z- Well whatever it is, this wormhole looks to be light years in length, so we should have plenty of time crunch the numbers.

(Ambient tank drum)

N- And so the Wonder-Nerds spent an eternity in the wormhole not only jamming, but probing the depths of this new, unknown plane of existence, seeking the secrets of the universe, life and everything. They developed the most advanced technologies, the most comprehensive cosmic understandings, and some of the grooviest grooves in all of history. But of course, history was not written in permanent ink.
(chimes start)
Many lightyears later...
(chimes end)


C- Hey Z-Man, what's inside of that box.
Z- A new machine, unlike any other in all of history! I call it the Virtual AntiGraviton Inflation Neutralization Activator
R- And you call it that so you can abbreviate it as “VAGINA”.
Z- Yes, but seriously, it is the product of everything science has ever uncovered, it is the most powerful tool ever made. We can open wormholes from here to anywhere, anytime, and any alternate universe ever!
C- You had me at vagina.
Z- This is no joke! We can finally leave the wormhole!
C- And do what?
Z- Computer, what do you think about making an open source time machine?
Comp- Bad plot line.
C- Riding dinosaurs!?
Comp- You guys already did that song.
R- Jam with music legends?
(tank drum thumps E 8th notes)
Computer- That is better, but think harder. You have the power to be gods if you know how to use it. Take a step back, and think outside of the Box.

(Tank drum solo, atmospheric bass and guitar)
(trippy vocals, rising dynamic)

We can travel through time and extra dimensions, thanks to our powerful invention, Turn the Universe into an open system. We can beat entropy, We’re enthalpy.

We are above the laws of Nature. It can’t comprehend our nomenclature. We are super-natural. We are gods.

(Dynamic falls back down, tank drum solo bridge)
(Drums crash in, bass pound 8ths, guitar chords heavy)
WE ARE METAPHYSICAL! WE ARE ALL POWERFUL! ABOVE THERMODYNAMICS! THE UNIVERSE CAN SUCK OUR DICKS!

WITH THE MASTERY OF TIME, I WILL BEND YOUR WILL TO MINE, SO NOTHING CAN STOP US, FROM TAKING THE COSMOS,
( Crash out, tank drum outro)

Computer- So, what have you come up with?

C- Thanks to our technology we’ve survived and thrived in our ship for thousands of years...
R- But in all that time, we’ve never unlocked the mysteries of the most beautiful, complex and important beings in all the world.
Z- Women. Accordingly, we have selected a time when we can use our music to get some women.
Hop in the wormhole boys, we’re going to the Roaring 20’s!

about

The Wonder-Nerds Atlanta, Georgia

The start date was 8-7-2721, and in the Star System Beta Canum Venticorum, the Wonder-Nerds ran like pansies from the evil Scrotum Aliens, falling into a wormhole and inadvertently changing all of history as a consequence. The only surviving record of their travels lies in their album, Abuscientia. Listen with caution, skepticism, and most importantly, in chronological order. ... more
