lyrics

I wanna learn the language
Of a socialist Scandinavian country
'Coz if I could learn another tongue
I'd have no use for this one
I'd put on a million layers
Just to walk down to the store
And if it means I'll never see another old face
I couldn't ask for more
And I'll look up to the northern sky
See a plane break through the gray up high
And wonder before all this how I ever got by

In the present day, life is decent
So c'mon, let's go downtown
I can't walk a single block or into any other shop
Without getting down to getting down
But the sky paints a different picture
My mind's cribbing a different page
I can see the outline of the firmament
Lined by a gilded cage
I know you'll be sad to see me leave
But I ran out of tricks from inside my sleeve
Salvation from a passenger jet is my last reprieve

Don't bother trying to find me
This is no communique from the hole
By the time you dig down to where you think I am
I'll be sunbathing in the North Pole
I've got so many frequent flier miles
Oslo to Stockholm here I come
To follow me would be to court disappointment
How do you say in Swedish, “so long?”
I don't want to see your face brim-full of tears
I hear Reykjavik is nice this time of year
Check your mailbox in a few weeks' time for a souvenir
And a plane could solve my problems
If it could break past the visible light
No language, no people, no streetlamps,
No gravity, no feelings, only night
