Lyrics Edit

[Teacher:]
It’s time to put things in perspective
Find your way again
Let me take you to the lighthouse
Where you can hide away

[Prodigy:]
I only want to be alone
To work the numbers on my own
I need to show my father
I need to show them all… I am the one

[Teacher:]
Your time has come

[Prodigy:]
To unlock the equation

[Prodigy and Teacher:]
The Theory of Everything

[Teacher:]
If you’re troubled by the visions
The chaos in your mind
If the voices start to whisper
Call me, day or night!

[Prodigy:]
Don’t worry, I’ll be fine

[Teacher:]
Don’t underestimate the danger

[Prodigy:]
I’m gonna make the theory shine

[Teacher:]
You’ll regret it sooner or later

[Prodigy:]
I need to show my father
I need to show them all… I am the one

[Teacher:]
Our time has come

[Prodigy:]
I will find the equation

[Teacher and Prodigy:]
The Theory of Everything
