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
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.
