Run The Numbers

Album: A Fever Dream (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

    'Cause I can feel
    'Cause I can feel it
    I don't care
    I'll never care
    'Cause I can feel
    'Cause 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

    'Cause I can feel
    'Cause I can feel it
    I don't care
    I'll never care
    'Cause I can feel
    'Cause 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

    'Cause I can feel
    'Cause I can feel it
    I don't care
    I'll never care
    'Cause I can feel
    'Cause 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 Writer/s: Alex Robertshaw, Jeremy Pritchard, Jonathan Higgs, Michael Spearman
