Manifesto Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I am for a life around the corner
That takes you by surprise
That comes leaves all you need
And more besides
Verse 2
I am for a life and time by numbers
Blast in fast and low
Add 'em up, account for luck
You never know
Verse 3
I am into friendship and plain sailing
Through frenzied ports a call
Oh, shake the hand to beat the band
With love is all
Verse 4
Or nothing to the man who wants tomorrow
There's one in every town
A crazy guy, he'd rather die
Than be tied down
Verse 5
I am for the man who drives the hammer
To rock you till the grave
His power drill shocks
A million miles away
Verse 6
I am for the revolution's coming
I don't know where she's been
For those who dare because it's there
I know I've seen
Verse 7
Now and then I've suffered imperfection
I've studied marble flaws
And faces drawn pale and worn
By many tears
Verse 8
I am that I am from out of nowhere
To fight without a cause
Roots strain against the grain
With brute force you'd better
Verse 9
Hold out when you're in doubt
Question what you see
And when you find an answer
Bring it home to me
