(Sense never seemed to make sense to me.)

Sense never seemed to make sense to me.
And not the sense you administer repeatedly.
I fled to the hills so I could clear my mind.
I couldn't swallow the pills that I was prescribed.

People didn't always like each other did they?
People didn’t always get along.

I read the news but it wasn't good,
Because the bad guys won when the good guys should.
Was it I told you that the worlds not flat,
It's a reputable source can it be taken as fact?

People didn't always get along though did they?
People didn't always like each other did they?

Oooh you know you'd never get to find out anyway.
The game plays us for fools.
You know you'd never get to have the final say.
You'll get to make the rules.

People always looking for something they can't find.
One man's fact another's trick of the mind.
People always looking for something they can't find.
One man's fact another's trick of the mind.

People didn't always like each other did they?
People didn't always get along though did they?

Oooh you know you'd never get to find out anyway.
The game plays us for fools.
You know you'd never get to have the final say.
You'd get to make the rules.

You know you'd never get to find out anyway.
The game plays us for fools.
You're never gonna get to have the final say.
You get to make the rules.
Rules.

One man falls another takes his place.
He chases the win until the end of his days.
One man falls another takes his place.
He chases the win until the end of his days.

One man falls another takes his place.
One man falls another takes his place.
One man falls another taaaaaaaaakes.

Oh, you know you'd never get to find out anyway.
The game plays us for fools.
You know you'd never get to have the final say.
You get to make the ruuuuules.

You'll get to make the ruuuuules.
You don't get to make the rules.
Get to make the ruuules.
Ruuuuules.
Get to make the rules.

(Instrumental till end)

    General CommentI'm not top sure what this song is about, but some of it makes me think about doign things you'd rather not to make other happy, and abandoning things to get where YOU want.

    Not sure why. But it does...

    General CommentAlso.

    1:56 - 2:07

    Is a pretty brilliant 11 seconds.

    I love the xylophone sounding part in the background and the vocal backing as well.
