Letra

Veritasium has been asking some,
Difficult questions on the street,
You might they sound easy but they're nmot, believe me,
When you're thinking on your feet
Why does the Earth spin on its axis,
Is it gravity, is it magic? What is it that is making it go?
In the morning do you weigh less? Why are these guys weightless?
"Cos there's no gravity in space is there?" No.

We make a model in our mind, of the world and the way we think it operates,
Sometimes we find, we can make mistakes,
People have misconceptions, and Derek can correct them,
Politely challenge them, try not to embarrass them,
Just invite them to have a look at Veritasium

Veritasium has been having fun,
Spinning stuff around and asking how does it work
You might think these are easy to explain, but that's not what you'll be saying
When you realise you can't just do a Google search
Why does the Moon have phases, does the shadow of the Earth explain it?
If that were the case then what's a lunar eclipse?
Where does most of the mass in a tree come from?
"Soil?" No, that's wrong. It's no the answer that fits.

We make a model in our mind, of the world and the way we think it operates,
Sometimes we find, we can make mistakes,
People have misconceptions, and Derek can correct them,
Politely challenge them, try not to embarrass them,
Just invite them to have a look at Veritasium

The laws of physics are not immediately obviouous
You've got to ask people what they're really thinking first
Some of the things that Derek says go against your instincts
But that's good because it means he's really making you think
Phenomena that are surprising, phenomena which are weird
Phenomena of realising that you shouldn't have shaved your beard
And when you finally figure it through you've got your own proof
Vertiasium it's the element of truth.
