Simple Math

Album: Simple Math (2011)
  • Hunter eyes
    I'm lost and hardly noticed, slight goodbye
    I want to rip your lips off in my mouth
    Even in my greatest moment doubt
    The line between deceit and right now

    Simple math, it's how our bodies even got here
    Sinful math, the ebb and flow to multiply
    What if I was wrong and no one cared to mention
    What if it was true and all we thought was right was wrong?
    Simple math, the truth cannot be fractioned
    Either way

    I imply to mitigate the guilt, we could align
    A perfectly constructed alibi
    To hush the violent guilt that eats and never dies
    In actual blame, they call me once the dark divides

    Simple math, it's why our bodies even lay here
    Sinful math, the truth cannot be fashioned
    What if you were crazy, would we have to listen then?

    What if we've been trying to get to where we've always been?
    What if I was wrong, and started trying to fix it?
    What if you believed me? Everything is brilliant

    Oh, oh, oh

    What if I've been trying to get to where I've always been?
    What if we've been trying to get to where we've always been?
    Simple math, believe me, all is brilliant
    What if we've been trying to kill the noise and silence?

    What if I was wrong and you had never questioned it?
    What if it was true, that all we thought was right, was wrong?
    Simple math, the truth cannot be fractioned
    I imply I've got to get it back then

    Oh, oh, oh Writer/s: JOHN ANDREW HULL
