This song is available on Lyrical Learning's Earth Science Geology

 

With our need to understand, to find meaning
and make sense
Searching the past for explanations
We interpret, when we can, what we find as evidence
Searching the past for explanations
We take the stories of how, why, and when
Into our theories, ’til questions come again
Information we acquire
Gives the knowledge we desire
Searching the past for explanations


So with history it is, both of humans and the earth
Searching the past for explanations
In geology we know all the effort makes it worth
Our searching the past for explanations
Landforms and fossils, from mountains to old bones
Are geologic puzzles and riddles in the stone
So we deduce and we infer
What we think had to occur
From searching the past for explanations


The geologic processes that we see today
Searching the rock for explanations
Some think to have occurred so long ago in the same way
Searching the rock for explanations
“Uniformitarianism” things change the same
But “catastrophism” says major events came
An upheaval: an earthquake,
Or eruption, or a flood,
We’re still searching the rock for explanations


Deposits of new sediment are on top of older layers
Searching the rock for explanations
So “relative age” means just the age, but not in years
Searching the rock for explanations
“Superposition” means older rock below
Comparison by age but it doesn’t help us know
The absolute age; so they estimate the date
From searching the rock for explanations
