First Time Caller (3:49)

We could only get so far
Through the glacial snows
Our windshield wipers fell apart

Quite some time ago

We kept fixing what kept breaking
But soon fell far behind
Out of phase with beauty
Cancellation blind

Back in the day
You were the patron saint of AM radio
The tundra’s only source for real rock and roll
But then you decided to go
Go

We could only get so far
And it’s nobody’s fault but my own
Tried a jackhammer to open a soft shell
And as soon as the double standards started to flow
The phone got thrown
And as soon as the midnight sun rose
Saw me cracked and you alone

Back in the day
You were the smoothest jock on KSNO
The tundra’s only source for real rock and roll
You left me because you needed to grow

Now I’m the scaredest of the scared
And I’m the coldest of the cold
Straining through the static
On this cheap old radio
Now you found another man
Whose charm it made your belly grow
A whole new world of sizes
Still the story goes

And now in the wee hours
If you listen across the snow
You can hear the distant crying
Of a baby Eskimo
A baby Eskimo
