Eskimo

I once spoke up to a meter maid
She said she liked the work but not the pay
Writing tickets while you run away
Afraid

I said hey to a polar bear
He said he liked it here but not over there
That’s what its like inside a dragon’s lair
The ice is fading back

It’s like teaching architecture to an eskimo
You can show him everything you know,
He’s still gonna build it out of snow
I’m gonna take my long division down to Mexico
Where I can divide all night

I said hey to an astronaut
He said he wishes he could pick his spot
He said he likes to go out a lot
And not quite make it back

It’s like teaching architecture to an Eskimo
You can show him everything you know
He’s still gonna build it out of snow
I’m gonna take my ticket and kick it down to Mexico
Yeah I’m gonna fly all night

(Been around the world) Been around the world, and I’ve seen
(You know what I mean) Enough to know what I mean
(Ticking in my mind) I got this ticking in my mind
And its about time

Well, alright

I set the record with Joan of Arc
She knew her destiny before the spark
She got the orders, and she played her part

It’s like teaching architecture to an Eskimo,
You can show him everything you know,
He’s still gonna build it out of snow
I’m gonna stand with my feet deeply rooted to the ground below
I can survive all night

It’s like teaching architecture to an Eskimo
You can show him everything you know
He’s still gonna build it out of snow
I’m gonna take my long division down to Mexico
Yeah I can divide all night
All night
