Hole In The Nothing

ttto: "Waltzing Matilda" (Banjo Paterson)
Out of the Big Bang, when our Universe was born,
Even the vacuum contained energy.
There can be lower states than came upon that first bright morn...
Hole in the Nothing expanding at c.
Chorus:
Hole in the Nothing, hole in the Nothing,
Once formed, it expands continuously.
There can be lower states than came upon that first bright morn...
Hole in the Nothing expanding at c.

Jolly cosmologists, pondering on Nothing's form,
Messing about in quantum theory.
Posit a vacuum less than what is now the norm,
Hole in the Nothing expanding at c.
Chorus:

(I/We) say it's out there, not here yet -- but getting warm.
Inside it, physics acts differently.
One day we'll fall in to this Universal storm.
Hole in the Nothing approaching at c.
Chorus 2:
Hole in the Nothing, hole in the Nothing,
Out there, expanding inexorably.
One day we'll fall in to this Universal storm...
Hole in the Nothing approaching at c.

When it arrives, our jolly Earth is ripped and torn,
Protons decay spontaneously.
Gone in an instant, there'll be no one left to mourn.
Hole in the Nothing approaching at c.
Chorus 2:

Always expanding, that hole of space that's been transformed.
It's sure to reach us eventually.
That's (the/our) jolly theory now; are you glad you've been informed?
Hole in the Nothing approaching at c.
Chorus 2:
