about

A funk anthem for mad scientists everywhere!

lyrics

Is this a stroke of genius or a total waste of time?
Am I the coolest guy on earth or have I lost my mind?
I'm obsessed with numbers, I can hear them in my head,
I can see the colors and they're green and blue and red!
I got to stop, I'm gonna stop real soon
I promise honey, I'm gonna feed the cat and clean the room
I promise that I'll get some sleep, I know I'm acting strange,
But I can't stop thinking 'bout the numbers in my brain!
I hear numbers, I hear numbers, I hear numbers, I hear numbers

Gonna fiddle with the midi, gonna twiddle it a little bit
And pan it to the middle with a little bit of sizzle
And compress the mids a little less and it'll be impressive
'Cause the midi is the message and the message is a riddle
I hear numbers (The midi is the message)
I hear numbers (The message is a riddle)
I hear numbers (The midi is the message)
I hear numbers (The message is a riddle)
I hear numbers (The midi is the message and the message is a riddle)

I hear numbers, I hear numbers, I hear numbers, I hear numbers

I hear numbers, I hear numbers, I hear numbers, I hear numbers
All the time, all the time, all the time, all the time
Obsessed with numbers, I can hear them all the time
I can see the music, the colors are divine!
Obsessed with numbers, I can hear them in my mind
Seven six, seven five, and fourteen over nine
Obsessed with numbers, now I hear them all the time
