Life is hard And so am I You'd better give me something So I don't die Novocaine for the soul Before I sputter out Before I sputter out
Life is white And I am black Jesus and his lawyer Are coming back Oh my darling Will you be here Before I sputter out [Repeat: x3]
Guess who's living here with the great undead This paint by numbers life is fucking with my head, once again
Life is good And I feel great 'cause mother says I was A great mistake Novocaine for the soul You'd better give me something to fill the hole Before I sputter out [Repeat: x4]

There aren't many songs with a scientist as the main character, but Coldplay's "The Scientist" is one of their biggest hits. The guy in the song is brilliant, but despondent because he's lost his girl after neglecting her for his work.
