If vain was a color to paint in you,
Your heart would be the color blue.
Be a gradient from there, until your body met your hair
Which remained a silver.

You are the one they call Jesus Christ.
Who didn't know no rock and roll.
Just a mission made of guns that they give boys in Vietnam.
In a heart that always told you

There's a madness in us all.
There's a madness in us all.

So
Who wrote the rules?
Who wrote the rules?
Who wrote the rules?

They said
Every one of you will never try to lend a hand
When the police men don't understand.

Boys, all you boys
Think you're so American.
Girls, all you girls
Yeah you're so American.

He may not be born of this land
But he was born of this world.
He was born of all the mothers
And the colors of our brothers
And the love that was started.

You are the one they call Jesus Christ.
Who may not know no rock and roll,
There may not be a heaven,
Or a place in which to send ya,
But you know in the end

There's a madness in us all. (x4)

So
Who wrote the rules?
Who wrote the rules?
Who wrote the rules?

They say
Every one of you will never try to lend a hand
When the police men don't understand.

Boys, all you boys
Think it's so American.
Girls, all you girls
Yeah you're so American.

There's two eyes for every one of us
But somebody got there first and took them all. (x2)

Man, oh man
You think it's so American
Man, oh man.
Yeah you're so American (x2)

There's two eyes for every one of us
But somebody got there first and took them all. (x2)
