Liner Notes: 

Skirmish prompt: Thermodynamics

Lyrics: 

“Energy is the ability to bring about change or to do work. The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that ‘in all energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves the system, the potential energy of the state will always be less than that of the initial state.’ This is also commonly referred to as entropy.“

V1
we’ll never reach a steady state
or exchange true love
now I can’t wait

I have less energy
than at the start
so I’m going
to be....

I’ll be giving in to
entropy

C
obeying the law
now that I am smart
obeying the law
not going to restart

obeying the second law....
second law of thermodynamics

V2
our potential for love
is much too low
I’ve had enough

you don’t have the energy
to work on change
or try to see....

so see now my
entropy

C
obeying the law
now that I am smart
obeying the law
not going to restart

obeying the second law....
second law of thermodynamics

Love all of the science references in the lyric. Very cool!

A science lesson! Through real life. Perhaps thats how it should be taught. Nice skirmish.

Too funny! "I have less energy than at the start so I'm going to be giving into entropy."--is this the nerdy way to break up at engineering school? I love it!

Thanks for the physics lesson. Great job turning it into a lyric. It's really well done and very clever. Thanks for playing.

Your explanation of energy and entropy made me enjoy this.
I hear this being sung by an AI or robot.
You have something VERY cool here.
I know what I hear is waaaay off from what you hear lol...nowhere near country.
Regardless, I really like this lyric. I've got all kinds of images in my head.

Really cool, I love the intro and hear this as an electronica piece that could have some potential. And a very clever twist with the character I hear singing the song anyway. I like this.

I know you said you feel like you didn't read the prompt instructions but I think what you did was a lot harder! Not many writers could pull off en emotional lyric about thermodynamics. Nicely done!

I'll take this over Muse's album (The Second Law) any day of the week. This is clearly written by someone who understands physics, for a start! Great fun, and very much my sort of thing.
