Song Description

Downtempo, trip-hoppy track from Worldview's "Our Condition album". About life, fitting in v. isolation, the differing temperaments and philosophies people have. Written, performed and produced by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

If you get on in this world cos it suits you
And do it without resorting to humour
If you stand out from the crowd but not too far
And hold no doubts about who or where you are

Then you're designed for life my friend
Then you're designed for life
And are you designed for life my friend
Are you designed for life?

But if you didn't arrive fully formed
Then there's a chance that you can't be that strong
Or if you're knocked out of shape early on
Then there's a chance that you won't get along

Then you're just managing the damage
You're only passing through
Then you're just casting out for something
That might make good the wound

If you can mark your prey out from a distance
Then coolly charm your way past their resistance
If you can get yourself hard in an instant
And then continue to last for the distance

Then you're designed for life my friend
Then you're designed for life
And are you designed for life my friend
Are you designed for life?

See those good-time girls who strut around town
They've been designed for life
See that beered-up boy bundled into the van
He's been designed for life

And when you're just managing the damage
Then you're not making hay
Then you must hang it all on something
A purpose for your stay

And who's not managing the damage
Who's not passing through
Who's not casting out for something
That might make good the wound

If you get on in this world cos it suits you
And feel assured of a rosier future
If you ignore all life's miserable lessons
And wouldn't waste your time with the big questions

Then you're designed for life my friend
Then you're designed for life
And are you designed for life my friend
Are you designed for life?
