Fifteen
They told me I could calculate my life by the number 15 and figure everything outBut a few thousand preconceived notions in, I forgot to carry the oneSo now I’m stuck wondering to myselfWhy 15? Why this conception? Why the notion?They told me everyone could calculate happiness by a certain numberAnd a few thousand in, I realized that everyone is not, in fact, allBy forgetting to carry that one, I became self awareI am not everyone and 15 doesn’t work for me
So I think I’ll start overThis time with threeYeah, I like that number…Three…And guess what, if I don’t like it, I start over againEveryone is not allNot everyone is me…

Why 15? Why this conception? Why the notion?
They told me everyone could calculate happiness by a certain number
And a few thousand in, I realized that everyone is not, in fact, all
By forgetting to carry that one, I became self aware
I am not everyone and 15 doesn’t work for me

So I think I’ll start over
This time with three
Yeah, I like that number…
Three…
And guess what, if I don’t like it, I start over again
Everyone is not all
Not everyone is me…
