Tenuousness

Lyrics

Tenuous at best was all he had to say
When pressed about the rest of it, the world that is
From proto-Sanskrit Minoans to Porto-centric Lisboans
Greek Cypriots and and harbor-sorts who hang around in ports a lot

god bless the rhymes in this song. seriously.
1. Great lyrics for learning new words and history.
2. Hard as HELL to sing along to.
One of the best songs ever. Check out Thursday by Takenobu for a similar intro.
love me some andrew bird, one of the most amazing live shows I have ever seen, one man band wonder
This is the kind of thing that never gets in the cars of freeway travelers everyday, no they just listen to
the tires in rotation of endless day after day
I love when lyrics are complex. Simple words and easy rhymes just don't do it for me.
