This song is by Van der Graaf Generator and appears on the album A Grounding in Numbers (2011).

You can make a matrix pattern out of almost anything
Tracing causal imperfections in the information flow,
Counting out the footfall of professional identity.
And the number is...
Five-five-three-three-double-two-three

As the primacy of digits ticks the boxes
So the codes that they unlock begin to run
And the synapses are snapped in to attention -
The observer, the observed become as one,
Reeling out the numbers
That are mapped in short-term memory,
So you key them in...

Five-five-three-three-double-two-three

(Ten, six, four, three
Sixteen, seven
Twenty-three)

Five-five-three-three-double-two-three
