lyrics

We count beads like vampires
Nights spent huddled side by side
Shifting twos and fives on homemade abici
Pale faced and bleary eyed

Watch for patterns in the strands
Sort each according to its kind
Record the numbers on yellow paper
Make lists and sublists in our minds

Count each hair on my body
If you miss one start again
I will take my turn and number yours
And count each freckle on your skin

Count things up on your fingers
When you run out use your toes
Count up all the things that frighten you
The lists me make will keep us close

Don't stop until the work is done
Our numerology is delicate
Don't stop until the work is done
Our taxonomy is intricate

We count beads like vampires
Nights spent huddled side by side
Shifting twos and fives on homemade abici
Pale faced and bleary eyed
