#TheScriptChallenge: Science & Faith

“Even a scientist has to have faith, even if it’s just faith in science itself.” (Mark)

Written by: Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan

Single released on May 27th, 2011

The song was released as the fourth and last single of the album. It wasn’t particularly successful as a single, peaking at number 62 in the UK and not reaching top 100 in other countries, not even in Ireland. But it was an important song to the band, born out of a conversation between Mr and Mrs Sheehan, which the band took it further to highlight the struggles in relationships, the two sides of the same coin.

Lyrics

Tried to break love to a science
In an act of pure defiance
I broke her heart.
As I pulled apart her theories
As I watched her growing weary
I pulled her apart
Having heavy conversations
About the furthest constellations of our souls. oh
We’re just trying to find some meaning
In the things that we believe in
But we got some ways to go.
Of all of the things that she’s ever said
She goes and says something that just knocks me dead.

You won’t find faith or hope down a telescope
You won’t find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything down to chemicals
But you can’t explain a love like ours.

Ooohhhh
It’s the way we feel, yeah this is real
Ooohhhh
It’s the way we feel, yeah this is real

I tried pushing evolution
As the obvious conclusion of the start.
But it was for my own amusement
Saying love was an illusion of a hopeless heart.
Of all of the things that she’s ever said
She goes and says something that knocks me dead.

You won’t find faith or hope down a telescope
You won’t find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything down to chemicals
But you can’t explain a love like ours.

Ooohhhh
It’s the way we feel, yeah this is real.
Ooohhhh
It’s the way we feel, yeah this is real.

Of all of the things that she’s ever said
She goes and says something that just knocks me dead

You won’t find faith or hope down a telescope
You won’t find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything down to chemicals
But you can’t explain a love like ours.

Ooohhhh
It’s the way we feel, yeah this is real
Ooohhhh
It’s the way we feel, yeah this is real

You won’t find faith or hope down a telescope

This is the line of the week, use this as inspiration for your submission.What does it mean for you? How has the song helped you? How would you display it in a photo or a drawing?

Make sure you include the quote somewhere (anywhere) in your creation.

For example:

  • an edit with that line
  • you singing the song (cover)
  • draw something that reflects the quote and include it in the caption
  • write a short story that includes that line
  • etc.

Have a look at last week’s submissions if you need some ideas.

Guidelines

When I say “creation”, I use it in the widest of sense: it can be a drawing, painting, montage, photograph, digital or manual art, edits, videos, gifs, short stories, poems, real life stories, blog posts, music and anything else you can think of when you say art. Don’t limit yourself with the format.

Please include the line of the week in your art. It doesn’t have to be featured as the main piece but it has to be included at least in the caption.

Only submissions sent until midnight Dublin time on Saturday will be included in the challenge.

You’ve probably noticed, I really like hashtags, so please humour me and use the hashtag (#TheScriptChallenge) when you share your art on social media. 🙂

You don’t have to do it every week: you can join whenever you feel like it. No excuse not to do it, really! 🙂 The more you practice art the better so to help that along there are special prizes for the “frequent fliers” 🙂

Any questions, let me know.

Love,

Andrea
