Black Math

  • Don't you think that I'm bound to react now?
    My fingers definitely turning to black now
    Maybe I'll put my love on ice
    And teach myself, maybe that'll be nice

    My books are sitting at the top of the stack now
    The longer words are really breaking my back now
    Maybe I'll learn to understand,
    Drawing a square with a pencil in hand

    Mathematically turning the page
    Unequivocally showing my age
    I'm practically center stage
    Undeniably earning your wage
    Maybe I'll put my love on ice
    And teach myself, maybe that'll be nice

    Listen master can I ask you a question?
    Is it the fingers, or the brain
    That you're teaching the lesson?
    Maybe I'll put my love on ice
    And teach myself, maybe that'll be nice Writer/s: JACK WHITE
