Your Hands Were Made for Working

from You Can't Buy Back Your Life by Bill Coleman

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Comes in a cardboard digipak with customised artwork. For a detailed explanation see the Youtube video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=39Iqpvb6JV8

    The covers were made in batches of 1,000. When put together they spell out the title of the album - see the first picture above.

    Each digipak was then hand stenciled and completed with a manufactured CD and a set of paper slips which go together, jigsaw-like, to spell out the song lyrics, thank-yous and album credits.

    Also includes download of the album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

Your Hands Were Made For Working,
Your tension stored but not forgotten
I talk my chain is turning
My compass foiled by earthed rock
Your mind is overthrown
Your heart is full but not forlorn
And I am overcome
And I am going to walk through this one.

Your hands were made for working
I am no foil no lock of fact
It is your brain you're burning
And every word we work is right
Your eyes are overthrown
Your heart is beautiful on its own
And I am overcome
But I am going to walk through this one

And every breath you take is more.
And every route you break is born.

I am overthrown
Your tension is turned but its not forlorn
And I am overcome
But I am going to bleed through this one.
