     A  Design  For


[Verse 1]

libraries gave us power
then work came and made us free
At what price now
For a shallow piece of dignity


[Verse 2]

I wish i had a bottle
right here in my dirty face
to wear the scars
to show from where i came


[Verse 3]

I wish i had a bottle
Right here in my pretty face
to wear the scars
to show from where i came


[Bridge]

We don't talk about love
We only wanna get drunk
And we are not allowed to spend
As we are told that this is the end


[Chorus]

A design for life
A design for life
A de sign for life
A design for life
