Started from the Atom (A Paordy of "Started from the Bottom")

Location

(Chorus)
Started from the atom—now we're here.
Started from the atom—now my whole compound's bonded here!
Started from the atom—now we're here.
Started from the atom—now my whole compound's bonded here!

(First Verse)
I kept decaying like an isotope.
Living with the same protons, but different masses—get it?
Exothermic when the thing turns cold.
Pressure and temperature flows from high to low.
Rutherford'll be like nucleus, where you at?
"Shot some alpha particles and you bounced them right back!"—get it?
I just think it's funny how it goes.
Hund's rule, first fill them empty orbitals!
And we

(Chorus)
Started from the atom—now we're here.
Started from the atom—now my whole compound's bonded here!
Started from the atom—now we're here.
Started from the atom—now my whole compound's bonded here!
Started from the atom—now we're here.
Started from the atom—now my whole compound's bonded here!
Started from the atom—now we're here.
Started from the atom—now my whole compound's bonded here!

(Second Verse)
Boys tell stories 'bout Arrhenius.
Said I produced OH-, was a base, the hydroxide—get it?
I can turn your pH into a 10.
There ain't really much of a buffer without some weak acid—get it?
We just wanna dissolve what likes us too.
I'm a non-polar breed, don't mix with polar molecules—get it?
Just as a reminder to myself:
Four different quantum numbers, even when I'm in the shell.

(Chorus)
Started from the atom—now we're here.
Started from the atom—now my whole compound's bonded here!
Started from the atom—now we're here.
Started from the atom—now my whole compound's bonded here!

(Bridge)
No new energy; we don't create that.
Establish equilibrium, always conserve mass.
We don't like to do too much fission,
The neutron shoots through and always splits it.
No new energy; we don't create that.
Establish equilibrium, always conserve mass.
We don't like to do too much fission.
Neutron shoots through and leaves radioactive products too.
Cause we

(Chorus)
Started from the atom—now we're here.
Started from the atom—now my whole compound's bonded here!
Started from the atom—now we're here.
Started from the atom—now my whole compound's bonded here!
Started from the atom—now we're here.
Started from the atom—now my whole compound's bonded here!
Started from the atom—now we're here.
Started from the atom—now my whole compound's bonded here!
