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

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.
