"God In The Numbers" as written by and Richard Ashcroft....
Sometimes you hold the world in your hands
Sometimes the world it baffles you with plans
Some days you drift oh so easy and free
Some nights you sleep in blissful harmony

How do we leave the wreckage of our lives?
How do you leave the past out in the night?
Don't throw away the pictures that give you a smile
Don't throw away the memories that make you cry

I saw God in the numbers (4x)

I know that I could learn a little harder
There's so much that I want to read and know
But maybe I'm a little lazy
Maybe I don't really want to know

I saw God in the numbers
I saw God in the numbers (I saw God in the numbers)
I saw God in the numbers
I saw God in the numbers (I saw God in the numbers)
I saw God in the numbers
I saw God in the numbers (I saw God in the numbers)
I saw God in the numbers
I saw God in the numbers (I saw God in the numbers)

The more I learn of history the more I hate it
'cause we're repeating things we did a thousand years ago
We're building palaces of fortune in the sky
There's an underclass dying whilst we smile

I saw God in the numbers (I saw God in the numbers) (6x)
God in the numbers (I saw God in the numbers)
I saw God in the numbers (I saw God in the numbers)

(I don't want to
I don't want to
I don't wanna)

    General Commenti agree that "human conditions" is his best, great production value and lyrically very dense. the whole album feels like ashcroft is trying to grasp his own spirituality and his place in the world. this song is great because he admits that it's tough and he just "might be too lazy" and it's a great fit with the next song too.
