Spent my whole life yea lookin' for something,
What it was I'm not really sure
I looked for happiness but only found sorrow,
Then I realized how to unlock the door

"So you think you've got it figured out !
It don't come easy, maybe just for fools
Some say life is a struggle now,
It's a game now, just gotta know the rules
Gotta know the rules!"

Most people go thru life thinking,
take what you can + leave the weak behind
Never stop to think what can you give now,
Too affraid to learn what you might find

" So you think you got it figured out !
It don't come easy, maybe just for fools
Some say life is a struggle now,
It's a game now , just gotta know the rules
Gotta know the rules ! "

Spent my whole life yea , doing things my way
Doing unto others knowing it's wrong
Whens the last time you looked in the mirror ?
Whens the last time you liked what you saw ?
