not a robot, but a ghost lyrics – andrew bird

i run the numbers through the floor
here’s how it goes: i crack the codes
i crack the codes that end the war
i crack the codes that end the war

i pushed a note under your door
here’s how it goes: things come to blows
but we don’t want this anymore
no we don’t want this anymore
we don’t want this anymore

i crack the codes, you end the war

i hear the clockwork in your core
time strips the gears till you forget what they were for
i push the numbers through your pores
i crack the codes
i crack the codes that end the war

how’s my view and
you can call
encrypted numbers
on bathroom stalls
there’s something burning
it casts a pall
it’s melting numbers
right off the wall

i run the numbers through the floor
here’s how it goes: i crack the codes
i crack the codes, you end the war
