Lyrics(only to verse as chorus and bridge are above)

1 Verse:-
libraries gave us power
then work came and made us free
At what price now
For a shallow piece of dignity

2 Verse:-
I wish I had a bottle
right here in my dirty face
to wear the scars
to show from where i came

3 verse:-
I wish i had a bottle
Right here in my pretty face
to wear the scars
to show from where i came
