The Way It Ought to Be Lyrics


by . From Tale of Two Cities.


Madame defarge
From where i sit i see the way things are
The way they've always been
From here the heavens seem a little far
And this world full of sin
And with these hands i keep a memory
Of the ones who've done such wrong
Until the judgement comes and all of us are free
I knit a picture of the way it ought to be.

Ernest defarge
You've always known this world is black and cold
And human life is cheap
You've always known most men are out for blood
And god is fast asleep
And you can stand there doing nothing
Hating everyone you see
Or you can fight to make a world where men are free
It's up to us to choose the way it ought to be

Madame defarge
And you can stand there doing nothing hating everyone you see

Ernest defarge
Or you can fight to make a world where men are free

Men
Until the judgement comes until this world is free

Madame defarge
I knit a picture of the way it ought to be

Sydney carton
If you ask me the world could use a shot
Of whiskey in its glass
I've earned the right to judge
I've learned a lot
Observing on my ass
This little bottle keeps mankind at bay
And far away from me
And when i'm blind with drink
I like the world i see
I even think the world's the way it ought to be
