"frame by frame" as written by Adrian Belew, William Scott Bruford, Robert Fripp and Anthony Charles Levin....
Frame by frame (Suddenly)
Death by drowning (from within)
In your, in your analysis.

Step by step (Suddenly)
Doubt by numbers (from within)
In your, in your analysis.

    My InterpretationI take this to be sort of like Tool's "Lateralus" -

    It's about how someone is proceeding 'frame by frame' (in the small scale) with their analysis of something. They "drown" in their analysis, doubting themselves (by numbers, or predictably).

    It's kinda what happens when you hear an 80s Crimson song for the first time and get absolutely lost trying to figure it out according to simpler musical conventions. Woah.

    General CommentAs all things crimson, a series of fractals which are simultaneously profound and shallow. The music's simple statement that wr get caught up in our own thoughts. As one who can relate, I often over think things, when if I stop trying so hard and slow down, the answers present themselves.
