The Calculation Lyrics by Regina Spektor

 

The Calculation by Regina Spektor


You went into the kitchen cupboard
Got yourself another hour
And you gave half of it to me
We sat there looking at the faces
Of these stranges in the pages
'Til we knew 'em mathematically
They were in our minds
Until forever
But we didn't mind
We didn't know better
So we made our own computer
Out of macaroni pieces
And it did our thinking while we lived our lives
It counted up our feelings
And divided them up even
And it called that calculation perfect love
Didn't even know
That love was bigger
Didn't even know
That love was so, so
Hey Hey Hey
Hey this fire it's burnin'
Burnin' us up
Hey this fire it's burnin'
Burnin' us
Up
So we made the hard decision
And we each made an incision
Past our muscles and our bones
Saw our hearts were little stones
Pulled them out they weren't beating
And we weren't even bleeding
As we lay them on the granite counter top
We beat 'em up
Against each other
We beat 'em up
Against each other
We struck 'em hard
Against each other
We struck 'em so hard
So hard
Until they sparked
Hey this fire it's burnin'
Burnin' us up
Hey this fire it's burnin'
Burnin' us Up
Hey this fire it's burnin'
Burnin' us
Up
