Look what you get for following leaders,
Who lead from the rear - where are they now?
Look what you get for following leaders,
Who lead from the rear - where are they...
Where are they now?

What did we learn in history lessons?
How to sit quiet at the back of a class
With so many things open to questions,
It's too late to cry - there's no one to ask.

Life's an education - a multiple equation,
Everybody finds their own solution in the end.
"To be or not to be" is a very lengthy question,
Has somebody please got a sharpened pencil they can lend?

What did we learn in history lessons?
How to sit quiet at the back of a class
With so many things open to questions,
It's too late to cry - there's no one to ask.

Marching in time down a production line,
What did that teach you about life in the dole queue?

The Law of Relativity - (life's relative misery).
The Law of Probability - (it's probably contrived).
Newton's Law of Gravity - (we face a grave reality).
The Law that runs the jungle - (only the strong survive).

Look what you get for following leaders,
Who lead from the rear - where are they now?

The path of least resistance - a bland text book existence,
Don't expect to find the answers printed at the back.
The only sound advice that's carried me through life -
When the cards are stacked against you - play the joker in the pack.

What did we learn in history lessons?
How to sit quiet at the back of a class
With so many things open to questions,
It's too late to cry - there's no one to ask.

Marching in time down a production line,
What did that teach you about life in the dole queue?
