Sara Groves - Scientists In Japan Lyrics




Scientists in Japan are building a robot to take your job
Doctors in France are growing a heart that will save your mom
Eyes wide open, and your jaw on the floor
We see science fiction ain't fiction no more

There's a meeting of minds slowly designing our future days
Back at the office they're running some copies from the DNA
We rob from Peter to extend Paul's life
Cause dying ain’t no way to die

Who's gonna stay here and think about it
Who's gonna stay, who's gonna stay
Who's gonna stay here and think about it
Who's gonna stay
Everybody's left the room
There's no one here to talk it through
Now stay, stay, stay

Set machines in motion, just to set machines in motion, just to watch em roll
There's no destination in sight just the rhythm of a barcarole
Don't know where we're going, but we've got the means
Put a front load washer in our time machine

Who's gonna stay here and think about it
Who's gonna stay, who's gonna stay
Who's gonna stay here and think about it
Who's gonna stay
Everybody's left the room
There's no one here to talk it through
Now stay, stay, stay

Eyes wide open and your jaw on the floor
We see science fiction ain’t fiction no more

Who's gonna stay here and think about it
Who's gonna stay, who's gonna stay
Who's gonna stay here and think about it
Who's gonna stay
Everybody's left the room
There's no one here to talk it through
Now stay, stay, stay

Scientists in Japan,
Scientists in Japan...

  1. Planet Jupiter

    Back when UP still played music not it’s the Christian version of the former music channels like MTV and VH1 even Fuse

  2. Daniel Brown

    I realy, really like Ms. Groves stylings, sincerity, character, reverence, catalog, very, very much. However, the production on this one song doesn't allow her lyrics to be clearly heard at times. It's a little frustrating, because usually her lyrics are so thoughtful, I'd have hoped to be able to consider them. Just a thought.

  3. Glory Poet

    On my channel I have a few covers to some of the songs by some of the artists from UP

  5. Audrey Dewey

    I love this song!!!! I first saw and heard this on UP music videos.

  6. Mike Castano

    great song

  7. rapidrail

    Beautiful song.  I first saw this on UP music videos.  So nice to hear a song from a female Christian singer that does not sound like every other young pop singer.  And nice to hear a song from a Christian singer that actually challenges you to think.

  8. Mirdie love

    so sad but i understand
    :( and i like it

  9. Bri Gates

  10. Meredith Katzenberger

  16. wippmann

    A lot of us just check out of those conversations. I like this call to engage.

  17. Aaron Gibson

    Very cool Sara! I was taken by this song the first time I listened through the album.

  18. reluctanttheist

    An amazing video from an amazing artist. Nice to listen to Christian music that provokes you at an intellectual level. Bioethics in Christian music? Yes! Also: got to learn a new word: barcarole

  19. Bryan McKaig

    Weird and great.

  20. Steve Dubrava
