The Rules

The human body is an interesting place.
A fine piece of machinery. A fun thing to waste.
Take a chance and destroy everything you’ve worked for.
Take a chance and enjoy. The dirty thing will make you feel alright.
And when I’m weak, I find my bed. I hear a voice inside my head
And I’m scared. What exists in this underworld?
There’s a ghost inside everyone.

The human body is an interesting place.

Who makes the rules that say that we’re pitiful?
Who makes the rules that make me think twice of my life?
Who makes the rules that say my behavior’s wrong?
Who makes the rules that make me stay up through this night?
The phantom’s got me thinkin.

Your state of mind doesn’t matter to me. Time to let go.
I hope that we will remain friends and everything. Time to let go.
How does your story go? It’s kind of foggy now. Time to let go.
I think the ending needs a little work.

Who makes the rules that say that we’re pitiful?
Who makes the rules that make me think twice of my life?
Who makes the rules that say my behavior’s wrong?
Who makes the rules that make me stay up through this night?
The phantom’s got me thinkin.
