about

DESIGN is the first release of original music by Asela Perera in over two and a half years. It is the lead up single to an upcoming album called G0LD and is markedly more dynamic and progressive than his previous work.

lyrics

Don't think,
Of all the things you could've been.
Don't matter,
What they think you're in your skin.

Cos I don't believe,
That you'd wreck your ship and sink into a fire,
Or parody,
That the system's drawn itself in your design.
Can't you see?
All your seams are not the lines that which define.

There's order,
In all beliefs that would define you.
Or is there?
Just a puppet on a guided string,
Sentiments of the right vs wrong,
Hollow twist in the words of a song,
Dotted line that we all walk along,
Fragile design of a mind not our own.

Cos I don't believe,
That you'd wreck your ship and sink into a fire,
Or parody,
That the system's drawn itself in your design.
Can't you see?
All your seams are not the lines that which define.

Your right to a season,
Full of reason.
You ride your choices,
Made with beating hearts,
And voices of a compass.
Your conscience.

Cos I don't believe,
That you'd wreck your ship and sink into a fire,
Or parody,
That the system's drawn itself in your design.
Can't you see?
All your seams are not the lines that which define.
