"12=3" as written by Joey Waronker, Oliver Goldstein, Justin Meldal-johnsen, Tim Anderson and Alex Ebert....
Twelve equals three
A line wrapped around a string
Girls in the classroom
Concentrate, boy!
A line around gravity
Spiritual individual
Corrosion and humanity
The mathematics of love
And the science of sanity

Living it up in the atmosphere
Nobody's dies if the heart is here

Kiss me goodbye
For the doctors are comin'
We all know why
Because I wasn't born
Here we go again
As time passes by here
We don't live and lie here
We're all going to die
In the end

Standing on the corner
Holes in my shirt
Girls drivin' by
Oh come here, don't flirt
'Cause she's never had a girlfriend
And I don't want one either
And I don't want the people
Knowing that I was smoking ether
I've been thinking about science
In my spare time
I've been thinking about the reason
To the rhyme, heck yea

Livin' it up in the atmosphere
Nobody dies if the heart is here

Kiss me goodbye
For the doctors are comin'
We all know why
Because I wasn't born
Here we go again
As time passes by here
We don't live and lie here
We're all going to die
In the end

Kiss me goodbye
For the doctors are comin'
We all know why
Because I wasn't born
Here we go again
As time passes by here
We don't live and lie here
We're all going to die
In the end

Rock science
And people got talk talk science
And people see stars sometimes
And some people raise cadavers
But not me, I see
The sun is made of string
Lights out from the underworld
People talk about God
Are they insane?
I don't think so
I say they're maybe spreading some love
Spreading it around
And it feels good
In your skin

    General CommentI think it's about child-birth and abortions. The title alludes to that. Person 1 and person 2 together make person 3. (12=3.) The chorus seems to be from the perspective of an aborted fetus. "Kiss me goodbye, for the doctor's are coming. 'Cos I wasn't born..." Fits the theme, though the obscurity of the lyrics makes t hard to nail down completely.

    General CommentGreat great song. I like your abortion theory - and I think I agree with you to a degree, but I think it's more to do with teen pregnancy and abortion, especially with loads of 'school' type lyrics.

    General Comment"Because I wasn't born
    Here we go again" to me resembles like a loophole to life.. like life, death life, death IE Reincarnation you can say because i wasn't born here; but here we go again. and the song is the science of life on earth.

    General Comment12=3 means that twelve weeks equals three months, and three months is the max time of pregnancy for you to have an abortion (as far as i know).

    (just a thought that came up to me while i was bathing)
