The Theory Of Everything

Play

Father:
I'm so close to the answer
A dazzling symphony of cosmic strings
I feel the pulse vibrating, just out of reach
The music of space
One single master equation
Unification of the great and small
I hear the notes, but the arrangement is worng
I'm starting to doubt, but I can't give up now I'm so near

Mother:
Can't you see Thati I need you out here?
And what about our boy?
I think he's got something to give
What secrets lie
Beyond these hollow eyes?

Father:
I'm sorry you feel neglected
But it's clear that you don't understand
I'm aware, and I want to be there
I just need some more time
For the answer is blindingly near

Mother:
Are trying to drive us away?
Just when we need you must
You might find he's got something to give
What secrets lie beyond these hollow eyes?
We need to take him to therapy
Help him function in society

Father:
It's worth a try
Who knows
He could me complete
The theory of everything

Mother and father:
A future to build
A role to fulfill
Something to give
A reason to live
