Everything Everything – Run the Numbers Lyrics

Run the Numbers by Everything Everything
Album : A Fever Dream
Released : 2017

Some folks sleep with their heads on the railway track
Talk about a rat king, talk about slipping through the crack
The Corridors of power are echoing with something for everyone
Nothing there for you, and there’s nothing left for me

Some fish swim when they don’t know the water from the air
Talk about a dreadnought, talk about a multi-millionaire
Tell me it’ll never work, I can’t have my cake and be eating it
Well I don’t want your cake, I’d never eat it anyway

I don’t need to run the numbers
I don’t care about your numbers
I don’t read the numbers numbers
I don’t need to run the numbers

‘Cos I can feel
‘Cos I can feel it
I don’t care
I’ll never care
‘Cos I can feel
‘Cos I can feel it
I don’t care
I’ll never care about your numbers

Hey now professor, less of your lip
Give me what I asked for, I don’t like the cut of your jib
Tell yourself it’s over soon
Something’s gonna drag you away from me
I was in the background, now I’m in your bed

I don’t need to run the numbers
I don’t care about your numbers
I don’t read the numbers numbers
I don’t need to run the numbers

‘Cos I can feel
‘Cos I can feel it
I don’t care
I’ll never care
‘Cos I can feel
‘Cos I can feel it
I don’t care
I’ll never care about your numbers

And I wait, and I wait
And it never comes

I don’t need to run the numbers
I don’t care about your numbers
I don’t read the numbers numbers
I don’t care about your numbers

‘Cos I can feel
‘Cos I can feel it
I don’t care
I’ll never care
‘Cos I can feel
‘Cos I can feel it
I don’t care
I’ll never care about your numbers

I don’t need to run the numbers
I don’t care about your numbers
I don’t read the numbers numbers
I don’t need to run the numbers
I don’t need to run the numbers
I don’t care about your numbers
I don’t read the numbers numbers
I don’t need to run the numbers

○ Listen to “Everything Everything” Songs

● “Distant Past ”

[ Quotable ] Your body never made it past the snow
Canine fangs up out my throat
You’re bleeding over Eden like a goat
Tall blade, a Triffid in every field

● “Cough Cough”

[ Quotable ] Just a cog next to a cog next to a pit
I would burn to break away and waste my years
No more ladder, no more solace in arrears

● “Regret”

[ Quotable ] Maybe I’m a human
The “trying to click ‘undo’ man”
Or maybe an automaton
Oh how’d it all go so wrong?
