Track Name: Factor Me In [Feat. Michael Kassatly]
You’re in your prime, but I’m asymptotic
I’ll never quite reach you, it makes me neurotic
You’re incomprehensible like theories Euler formulated
Meet me at the midpoint because I am uncoordinated
Came into my life and foiled my plans
Now I’m a calculator ready to take your commands
But I don’t know how to solve them
I'd ask for your help if I didn’t have a word problem

This is a radical expression of my love for you
What is the probability that one and one makes two
Because I’m counting all the ways to add you into my equation
Factor me in, begin our association
My love for you is exponential
I know that we have potential
Minimize our differential
Finally we’ll be tangential

Give me a sine, cause you’re up than you’re down
I'm running in circles, 360 around
My operations aren’t in order, I’m at a junction
Let’s optimize our lives like an energy function
So I’ll crunch the data, I’ll write in the lines
To the fundamental theorem of why you should be mine
I need proof that it's reciprocal and you think I'm acute
Cause the value of your love is absolute

This is a radical expression of my love for you
What is the probability that one and one makes two
Because I’m counting all the ways to add you into my equation
Factor me in, do you need some more persuasion?
My love for you is exponential
I know that we have potential
Minimize our differential
Finally we’ll be tangential

I swore I wouldn't use you in the real world
But I’ve reached my limit, there’s nothing left to feel, girl
This linear regression has a negative trend
We can’t go on forever, this behavior has to end
We’re like an odd polynomial, I've come to terms with you
Bound for opposite infinities, there’s nothing we can do

This is a radical expression of my love for you
What is the probability that one and one makes two
When you have too many variables to solve an equation
Factor me out, it’s an asymmetric relation
My love for you was exponential
But we no longer have potential
