I’m sick and tired of fighting
Just for what I know is mine
Tell me I can’t have it
Destruction is a sign of times

Play by the rules

Let’s replay the action
In slow motion from the start
Watch from all the angles
Now this is where you stole my heart

Take me for a sucker
While I’m trippin’ on my tongue
Come on, give me credit
at least I know who’s lost, who’s won

Play by the rules


I’m sick and tired of wages
That won’t even pay my rent
I think I’ll bill my agent
For the cash that I can’t spend

Play by the rules
