Nuclear Bubble Wrap Hypotenuse 
I wrote this song after having a long pointless argument on Facebook with somebody who not only didn't believe in science (one of those "the earth is 6000 years old" people), but actually believed that science is an enormous global conspiracy set by a "world government" that's deliberately meant to spread lies in order to mask the truth. He believed that every single bit of science text in the entire world, in any country, whether in a book or online, was peer reviewed by a single world government entity before being allowed to exist. For real.

This song is about that conspiracy. Also, the name of the song comes from my friend's dad, who actually once said, "I don't trust scientists. All they do is make up hypotenuses."

Features Shoebox of Worm Quartet on backup vocals! This song is, again, on our new album Psycho Delicacy!

This is a very different sound for you guys and I really like it. Not that I didn't like your other sound, but this is neat!

Why does hardly anyone ever comment on these? They're so very good.
