​When People Become Numbers

This song is by Drowningman and appears on the album Rock And Roll Killing Machine (2000).

Sometimes our fingers speak louder than words (aggravates illness and passes through spit) I can see right through the back of your head
Clearly
If its right or its wrong if this is wrong
I can't be right
Dear god, I think they're right/ how long before this dies? we'll count the numbers, we'll just forget
We've learned to fail
We've embraced regret
That's not an honest answer and we don't wish it was
(You're like) sharpened sticks passing hands, aimed at hearts, passing through
Straight through my heart, pass my way
Sometimes our fingers speak louder than words
Sometimes these wires pass right through the nerves if my heart swelled from my chest would you feed it glass or another kiss? we'll go on for days, for months, for years forever
You'll break my heart
If we count on each other over someone else's shoulder
The way we do when people become numbers am I a one, a two, a three, four, five or six, seven or an eight?
