Book of Rules Rules
[©2020 W. Livesay]

I take it upon myself to show some restraint
A jester holding court is something that I ain’t
All this fuss about a politician acting like a fool
He’s just living by his own book of rules
Hanging in the closet with her best face on
What was she thinking when her lights were all turned off
Feeling the fires of emotion for an end that she would choose
She was living by her own book of rules
A book of rules everybody’s got one
They’re tryin’ to find the page
Book of rules to navigate within our moral maze
Talkin’ ‘bout who we are
In the company of fools
Is written in the book, the book of rules
Sorry’s just an empty word if lives are torn apart
Apologies can’t compensate or mend a broken heart
How could he justify the closing of a life that he once knew
He’s just living by his own book of rules
Book of rules everybody’s got one
They’re tryin’ to find the page
A book of rules to navigate within’ our moral maze
Talkin’ ‘bout who we are
In the company of fools
Is written in our books, a book of rules
She wears a cross upon her shoulder like a rebel flag displayed
And her celibacy is held in check by the men she turns away
Tattoos mapping out her message in shades of reds and blues
Oh she’s writing in her own book of rules
A book of rules everybody’s got one
They’re tryin’ to find the page
A book of rules to navigate within’ our moral maze
Talkin’’ bout who we are
In the company of fools
Is written in our books, written in our books
The book of rules
The book of rules
Talkin’ ‘bout who we are in the company of fools
