If pain was a color to paint on you,
Your heart would be the color blue.
Be a painting, hung up there til your body met your head.
Which were made of silver.

You are the one they call Jesus Christ.
Who didn't know no rock and roll.
Just a mission made of guns that they give boys in Vietnam
But they always told him

There's a madness in us all.
There's a madness in us all.

So who broke the rules?
Who broke the rules?
Who broke the rules? hey

They said
Every one of you will never try to lend a hand
When the police men don't understand.

Oh tell your boys, all you boys
Think you're so American.
Girls, all you girls
They're so American.

He may not be born of this land
But he was born of this world.
He was born of all the mothers
And the colors of our brothers
And the love that was started

You are the one they call Jesus Christ.
Hey may not know no rock and roll.
There may not be a heaven,
Or a place in which to send you,
But you know in the end

There's a madness in us all.
There's a madness in us all.
There's a madness in us all.
There's a madness in us all.

So who broke the rules?
Who broke the rules?
Who broke the rules? Hey

Say
Every one of you will never try to lend a hand
When the police men don't understand.

Boys, all you boys
Think you're so American.
Girls, all you girls
They're so American.

There's two eyes for every one of us
But somebody got there first and took them all.
There's two eyes for every one of us
But somebody got there first and took them all.

Man, oh man
Think you're so American
Man, oh man.
Yeah you're so American

Man, oh man
Think you're so American
Man, oh man.
Yeah you're so American

There's two eyes for every one of us
But somebody got there first and took them all

There's two eyes for every one of us
But somebody got there first and took them all
