The late heavy bombardment of the earth
Might not have happened but if it did, how did it work?
Did it leave bruises on the moon
Because the music of the spheres went out of tune?
A late rush of rocks displaced in outer space,
Neptune and Saturn in disarray,
Produced an asteroid we could not avoid;
Were we lucky not to be destroyed?
My friends from MIT, they tried to explain
Here it comes, so brace yourself for the late heavy bombardment
It’s coming straight for you and everybody else, the late heavy bombardment
It’s going to be quite the catharsis,
the late heavy bombardment
The late great arrival of H2O
Is said to have occurred 4 billion years ago
The drops that make the seas and fall from the skies,
The mist and spray, the tears that rain from your eyes
