You can be my alphabet And I will be your calculator And together we'll work out on the escalator
I will time you as you run up to down And you will measure my footsteps as I pleasure this town The mean of our heights is divided by the Nights Which is timed by the daggers in the root of all our fights
The pass of your poem is to sway me in your knowing And the beauty of the word is that you don't have to show it
(Chorus:) Oh Academia, you can pick me up, soothe me with your words when I need your love.
I am a dash and you are a dot, when will you see that I am all that you've got?
I'm a binary code that you cracked long ago, but to you I'm just a novel that you wish you never wrote
I'm greater than x, and lesser than y
So why is it that I still can't catch your eye?
You're a cryptic crossword, a song I've never heard While I'm sitting here drawing circles I'm afraid of being hurt
You're a difficult equation with a knack for heart evasion Will you listen to my proof or will you add another page on? It appears to me the graph has come and stolen all the laughs It appears to me the pen is over analyzed again
And if I am a number I'm infinity plus one And if you are five words you are afraid to be the one And if you are a number, you're infinity plus one And if I'm four words then I am needing of your love.
Oooh Academia, Academia, Academia Oooh Academia, Academia, Academia
