Recorded at Gamle Slakthuset, Haugesund.

lyrics

You thought you'd never touch the subject again
It's only lightly hidden under the clothes and
You're afraid that you're repeating yourself, but you're not
You're just completing what you started

You know the truth can be insufferably strange
It's only words, it's only words, what does it matter?
You thought you'd never see the woodlice and lab mice
But never mind, it's only numbers

You thought you'd never see it mentioned again
But there they are, and now they're digging up your garden
You thought the body would have time to dissolve
Under clothes and up your wall and after all

You know the world can be insufferably cruel
It's only words, it's only words, what does it matter?
You thought you'd never see the woodlice and lab mice
But never mind, it's only numbers

Woodlice, lab mice, falling onward
Odd weird numbers
Lock the cupboard
Take your time to kill it
So to speak

Woodlice, time flies, crawling forward
Odd weird numbers
Burn your cell phone
Take your time to finish
For the week

Sometimes it's so hard to find something to say
It's only words, it's only words, what does it matter?
Sometimes it's all so confusing, but hey
After all it's only numbers
