I was going to hide

but I couldn't find a place

I was going to run away

but they've been taught how to chase

I wanted to say it

say it to your face

that I don't feel like playing this game

It seems like the world's on that other guy's side

one strike, you're out

but enjoy the ride

and she'd see that it's summer

if she'd open her eyes

but her colors are fading into black and white

CHORUS:

I don't wanna play this game

too many rules to follow

and nothing ever changes in this place

oh, oh, oh

I told you to think

think about what you're going to say

guess you hadn't quite learned to obey

so it's back to the old drawing board

for the eighteenth time today

I'll take it slow

I'm tired of listening

I know that you know

that I don't know everything

CHORUS:

I don't wanna play this game

too many rules to follow

and nothing ever changes in this place

oh, oh, oh

BRIDGE:

I don't think I can do this again

CHORUS:

I don't wanna play this game

too many rules to follow

and nothing ever changes in this place

oh, oh, oh

oh, oh, oh
