Lyrics

ADFLlyrics.jpg

Libraries gave us power
Then work came and made us free
But what price now for a shallow piece of dignity

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

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

A design for life
A design for life
A design for life
A design for life

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

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

A design for life
A design for life
A design for life
A design for life

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

A design for life
A design for life
A design for life
A design for life

Sleeve Quotes

"The creation continues incessantly through the media of man. But man does not create... he discovers. Those who look for the laws of nature as a support for their new works collaborate with the creator. Copiers do not collaborate because of this, originality consists in returning to the origin" - Antoni Gaudi

"The architect, by the relationships which he creates he wakes in us profound echoes, he gives us the measure of an order which we feel to be in accordance with that of our world, he determines the various movements of our heart and of our understanding; it is then that we experience the sense of beauty" - Le Corbusier

"Part of the pleasure of a library lies in its existence" - Jan Morris
