It's All By Design


I stepped into Heaven on Friday
And I saw Elvis Presley holding a child
And he said son please make this baby stop crying for I,
Got a hand to play with either side

And there’s an exit in the heart of Texas that’s just restless,
Everyone’s trying to talk the cool town jive
But the irony that displeases me,
When the money man soars, the poor can’t eat,
Guess we’re all just hungry to survive

And that’s all by design
Yeah that’s all by design

I got a tip that was for sure down the corridor,
From a girl who was bored, and snored through the world
The war made her swore to realize

That if we’re all sheep in a world that’s overheating
And we can’t find a reason for this season of bleeding
Maybe we’re just not meant to survive

And that’s all by design
It’s all by design
Yeah that’s all by design

And the preacher’s daughter thinks she walks on water
Burning the bridge beneath her feet
Everyone’s waiting for her to fall in line

But the punishment from the government,
With their censorship and their poli-tricks
Well I’m about to be losing my damn mind
And that’s all by design

It’s all by design
Yeah that’s all by design

It’s all by design
It’s all by design
Yeah that’s all by design
