Stabilo – Flawed Design lyrics

When I was a young boy
I was honest and I had more self-control
If I was tempted I would run
Then, when I got older
I began to lie to get exactly what I wanted
When I wanted it
And I wanted it
Now, I'm having trouble differentiating
Between what I want
And what I need
To make me happy
So instead of thinking I just act
Before I have the chance to contemplate the
Consequence of actiona

And I will turn off
And I will shut down
Burying the voice of my conscience hitting ground
And I will turn off
And I will shut down
The chemicals are restless in my head

'Cause I lie
And not because I want to
But I seem to need to
All the time
(Need to all the time)
Yeah, I lie
And I don't even know it
Maybe this is all a part of my flawed design

And ever since I figured out
That I could control other people
I've had trouble sleeping
With both eyes closed
And if I asked permission
If I make sure it's O. K.
I promise I won't slip up this time
You can trust me
But never take advice from someone
Who just admitted to being devious
Who just confessed to treason
And I would also never ask a question
That I cannot ask myself
For it might dirty up your conscience

'Cause I lie
And not because I want to
But I seem to need to
All the time
(Need to all the time)
Yeah, I lie
And I don't even know it
Maybe this is all a part of my

And how can you say those things
Why can't you just believe
And how can you say those things
And keep a straight face
And how can you say those things
Why can't we just believe
And how can you say those things
And keep a straight face

And I will turn off
And I will shut down
Burying the voice of my conscience hitting ground
And I will turn off
And I will shut down
The chemicals are restless in my head.

'Cause I lie
And not because I want to
But I seem to need to all the time
(Need to all the time)
Yeah, I lie
And I don't even know it
Maybe this is all a part of my
'Cause I lie
And if I could control it
Maybe I could leave it all behind
(Leave it all behind)
Yeah, I lie
And I don't even know it
Maybe this is all a part of my flawed design.
