Spent my whole life yeah looking 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
Yeah, yeah, yeah

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 through life thinking
Take what you can and leave the weak behind
Never stop to think what cann you give now
Too afraid to learn what you might find
Yeah, yeah, yeah

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

Spent my whole life yeahdoing things my way
Doing unto others, knowing its wrong
When's the last time you looked in the mirror?
When's the last time you liked what you saw?
Yeah, yeah, yeah

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
