Society’s Rules

Society’s rules

You just gotta accept

That someone ushered in

While the rest of us slept

You gotta stand in line

You gotta keep in step

You gotta hold your tongue

Keep your words in check

You gotta play their game

In everything you do

But sometimes

You gotta break the rules

Before the rules break you

 

Society’s rules

You have to obey

You gotta toe the line

And be sure not to stray

You gotta simply agree

With whatever they say

Just nod your head

And then be on your way

You gotta live your life

The way they want you to

But sometimes

You gotta break the rules

Before the rules break you
