Akira The Don – An Apple Pie From Scratch Lyrics (feat. Carl Sagan)

[Chorus]
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch
You must first invent the universe
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch
You must first invent the universe

This is a time of great danger
But our species is young and curious and brave
It shows much promise
In the last few millennia, we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries about the cosmos and our place within it
I believe our future depends powerfully on how wеll we understand this cosmos on which we float likе a mote of dust in the morning sky

[Chorus]
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch
You must first invent the universe
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch
You must first invent the universe

The surface of the Earth is the shore of the cosmic oceans
On this shore we’ve learned most of what we know
Recently we’ve waded a little way out

Maybe ankle deep, and the water seems inviting
Some part of our being knows this is where we came from
We long to return, and we can
Because the cosmos is also within us
We’re made of star stuff
And we are a way for the cosmos to know itself

[Chorus]
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch
You must first invent the universe
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch
You must first invent the universe

[Chorus]
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch
You must first invent the universe
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch
You must first invent the universe

The cosmos is full beyond measure of elegant truths, of exquisite interrelationships, of the awesome machinery of nature
