A song about the daily relationship drama of hydrogen and carbon as they break up and find new partners.


Hydrocarbon was in the hotseat
Sitting among the flames
And in this stressful situation Carbon cracked and stole away
Hydrogen was heartbroken, she and carbon had shared a bond
She gave him her electron and he left her in a pond

Some call it less some call it combustion that caused this bitter end
But there was love in the air that day in the form of oxygen

Carbon said to Oxygen "I'm missing something but I think we'd be complete, if it were you and me"
Oxygen said when I'm alone I get lonely so I, I bring my doppelganger with me
Carbon said baby that's no problem I've
had four partners simultaneously
We would make a breath-taking three

So Carbon said baby what's your number
She said "It's 8, it's half my weight
Let's lay our info down on the table so we can see how well we relate"
