about

If five people are hurting you, don't be afraid to make that number four.

lyrics

One two three four five six seven
Eight nine ten
Eight nine ten
One two three four five six seven
Eight nine ten
Eight nine ten
Eight nine ten
Eight nine ten
Eight nine ten
Eight nine ten
One two three four five six seven
Eight nine ten
One is lonely
Two is not found
Three can't help it
Four just screams now
Five wish she could help them all but
She can't talk now
It's not allowed
Six just watches from the side now
Nonchalant 'cause it's a game now
If we could just rewind the day
That four hurt five

And it's too late because you're not there
And it's too late because you don't care
And it's too late because you're not there
And it's too late because you don't care

Nine and a half minutes is all
It takes to end a life these days
But a friendship that glows so strong
Cannot possibly fall that hard
In the past we've seen it happen
Not withstanding pain and suff'rin'
Reach through the dark electron void
And just take her hand
Just grab it, don't writhe with it
You can save her, you can take her
Through the abyss which forsakes her
You have the chance to be her savior
Friendship grows as friendship glows
And though your actions may have seemed good
Reach through the dark electron void
And just hold her hand

And it's too late because you're not there
And it's too late because you don't care
And it's too late because you're not there
And it's too late because you don't care
We tried to fight it but five said no
Six, now, and seven, the rest can't go

Eight nine ten, just looking down now
Judging harshly, this is not what
They expected of us young ones
We were supposed to be better
Seven sighs now, this is his fault
Three jumps forward, not on my watch!
One can't find where everyone's gone
Four just sits there
Five is silent, this is not her prerogative anymore
She has new friends, interactions
Exponentiation at last
Four can only reduce itself
Other numbers run in quickly
Every nine and a half minutes
Four just sits there and regrets it
She regrets it
Four just sits there and regrets it
The plane lands and she regrets it
The friends she had were much better
No more laughing since she saw it
Touched so quickly but forgotten
Five and a half months ago
She must've hurt a
Secondary, secondary
My opinion, secondary
You can redeem yourself if you
Try your hardest, sometimes one your
Friends may turn out to be rotten
Notwithstanding pain and suffering
Five and a half months ago
She must've hurt a
Horse, car, stabber; no successor (And it's too late)
It's too late, you've made decisions (Because you're not there)
Pressed send quickly, regret it lately (And it's too late)
She had thought she wasn't good enough (Because you don't care)
Now you've shown yourself completely (And it's too late)
You're no angel, you're no Satan (Because you're not there)
Five and a half months ago (And it's too late)
You must've hurt a friend
