Tokyo Police Club – Listen To The Math lyrics

You've been famous since your birth.
A silent one it was, 'till they told me, "It's a girl."
And everybody gasped.
I know how to raise you right, teach you how to read, and your math, yeah, toys, spelling, names, alphabet, and how to be polite.

You've been famous since your birth.
A silent one it was, 'till they told me, "it's a girl."
And everybody said, "you and your atlas know it all."
Let the corners curl, 'cause if you go by night, you'll hit the coast for sure.

It's a ruse, it's a laugh.
Experts, they agree, listen to the math.
Australopithecine
Re-Kindle your heart.
These hospital machines are state of the art.

I put down my middle name in the back of her book.
And signed it just in case our work was overlooked.

Cause I got one more up my sleeve.
I'll bring it out tonight, 'cause if I am the joke, then you're the punch line.

It's a ruse, it's a laugh.
The experts, they agree, listen to the math
Australopithecine
Re-Kindle your heart.
These hospital machines are state of the art.

But it's the art of the state that's gonna keep me awake.
I need a second opinion, Not a second to waste.
