From the recording Not a Number


From one to ten
In childhood time goes very slowly
Suddenly, 33
One third of a hundred

Why do people like so much the hundred?
Not certain it's one hundred percent perfect
There is no beauty with no defect

Seek humanity in meaningless numbers, I’ve tried
Their lips are tight
The numbers don't lie
But in numbers is where the lie hides

248 years
It is Pluto’s orbit
There’re 17,666 deaths
No thoughts, no feelings
When over the scale the number exceeds

You are the 23,875,639th to know
A trillion equals million times million
No, it means 10 to the 18th power
But I don’t care

From polygons blooms a circle
It is zero in the end
Go from where it began
