"9/15ths" as written by and Simon Alexander Neil....
We're on a hell-slide
Help us, help us

Are you irrelevant?
You're falling to pieces

How do you become one again?
Are you an elephant?
You've fallen to pieces
How do you do?

We're on a hell-slide
Help us, help us

    General Commentalso worth gettin the link between 'falling to pieces' and the album cover, where one of the pieces has fallen off the man, reflects the whole theme of the album really, about simon falling apart after the death of his mother

    General CommentAnyone know what's going on with the whole 2/4//9 /15ths thing on this album? i see the rep in semi mental 4/15ths... but what are the numbers for.
    i get that if you add 2 and 4 15ths as seperate songs it makes 15... but hows that relelvent? anyone shed any light?

    General CommentWell since the album is called "puzzle", I guess it just makes sense to put the pieces 2+4+9 together for the total result of 15/15ths.And then there are of course the lyrics "...falling to pieces - how do you become one again" that pretty much say it all. I don't really think there's much more to it.

    General Commentas for the lyrics:

    "
    we're on a hell slide
    help us, help us
    we're on a hell slide

    are you an elephant
    you fall into pieces
    how do you
    become one again?

    are you an elephant
    you fall into pieces
    how do you
    how do you do

    we're on a hell slide
    help us, help us
    we're on a hell slide
    "


    thinking about it, this could either be about him falling apart due to the death of his mother or about his memory of her slowly fading away and him trying to fix it.

    General Commentstill wrong.

    it's

    "are you irrelevant?
    you fall in to pieces
    how do you become one again?

    are you an elephant?
    you crush me to pieces
    how do you
    how do you do?"
