Atom (Reg Mombassa) - A science fiction speculation on the possibility that the earth and other celestial bodies are just atoms inside an impossibly vast creature that we could never see or communicate with and which would have no knowledge of or interest in the doings of such tiny sub-atomic creatures as human beings. It could also be a reflection on the difficulties and ridiculousness of our attempts to describe understand or communicate with some imaginary friend that may or may not be the super-god of the marvellously vast and terrifying universe we find ourselves in.

Lyrics

Atom
(Reg Mombassa)
Maybe the earth is just an atom 
In the heart of a very big man
Maybe the world is next to nothing
Just another grain of sand
In some strange and faraway land
Where all the people are so big
They can’t be seen by us
 And we would go unnoticed
By these great big people
 By these great big creatures 
Maybe we don’t need to be so angry
About so many things
 Maybe we don’t need to be so crazy 
In the pursuit of belief 
Things that you may never see
 All of those Gods and ghosts and goblins
Streaming around the fire 
All of those fairies and demons
Churning in your mind
 Messing with your mind
So wake up foolish humans 
You’re wasting too much time
Pretending you can change
 The water into wine 
All of those Gods and ghosts and goblins
Streaming around the fire
 All of those fairies and demons
Churning in your mind
 Messing with your mind
 Marching up and down 
Churning in your mind
