lyrics

The Arithmetics

What I wanna do is something
Which depends on numbers more than often
So why doing things out of the blue?

1+1=2 is something
That’s been said to me a million times
I always wanted 1+1 to be 3

I should have listened better to the advice
The arithmetics never lie
Though I wish they would
I’ve been outnumbered by the truth that never lies By the arithmetics of my life
That I misunderstood

What I wanna do is something
Which depends on numbers more than often
So why doing things out of the blue?
Clichés are much more numerous
Than behaviour that can’t be decoded
I’ve got to find my way back out of the woods

I should have listened better to the advice
The arithmetics never lie
Though I wish they would
I’ve been outnumbered by the truth that never lies By the arithmetics of my life
That I misunderstood
1+1=2 and 2+2=4
An outcome always opens up a door

I should have listened better to the advice
The arithmetics never lie
Though I wish they would
I’ve been outnumbered by the truth that never lies By the arithmetics of my life
That I misunderstood

I’m still counting don’t know whether I’ll win or lose
Recounting
And counting

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13
