"Counterparts And Number Them" as written by and Dallas/ingelevics Green....
Jennifer,
They lied to you.
When they said you couldn't breathe underwater.
(So here it is, the end is near)
I lied, too, when I said that I was hard.
(Never would've thought this might be something you'd so easily discard)
I'm soft
Softer
(Now I see it all so clear)
Than a
(So it seems that when you turned away, you)
Thrift store
(Left)
Thrift store
(A scar)
Thrift store
Sweater.
Twice as worn in.
Twice as worn in.

I was cast away once,
But I will be found again.
This I promise you.
Promise you.

    General CommentDoes anyone know what they're singing on top of George's screaming? I can't quite figure it out, but if anyone knows, please post it.

    General Commentok here's the proper lyrics (for those who want to know):

    Jennifer, they lied to you when they said you couldn’t breath underwater. (So here it is, the end is near) I lied to when I said (never would've thought this might be something, you'd so easily discard) I was hard, (now I see it all so clear so it seems when you turned away you left a scar.) because im softer than a thrift store sweater and twice as worn in. I was cast away once but I will be found again. This I promise you.

    General CommentOooh, they're awesome live. Saw them in Graceland, Seattle. They had the crowd so hyped up it was great. But I aslo have a question, what's with "Counterparts and Number Them" as a title? Doesn't seem to have anything to do with the song. Anyone know?
