Well, Iâ€™ve been watching us very close, And I guess the one thing thatâ€™s been bothering me the most, Is when I see us playing by the same rules that the world is using.
Well, Iâ€™ve been listening to the things that we say, And I, I hear us mention words like fortune and fame, And it makes me wonder if weâ€™re sure about the side weâ€™re choosing. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m asking you
CHORUS Who makes the rules for me and you, When itâ€™s wrong or right is it black and white? Who makes the rules for me and you; Itâ€™s our life at stake so we better know who makes the rules.
When I see people just like you and me, Trying to live out the pictures they see on TV; Gotta have a new car, new clothes, new love when they get tired of trying.
Well, Iâ€™ve been reading â€˜bout a different way, Talking â€˜bout dying to live and losing to gain; Seems like somebodyâ€™s telling us the truth and somebodyâ€™s lying. I wanna know who.
Two voices are calling out to you; Youâ€™re serving the one youâ€™re listening to, So, tell me who, somebody tell me who.
