Who Makes The Rules - Steven Curtis Chapman

Well, I've been watching us very close,
And I guess the one thing that's been bothering me the most,
Is when I see us playing by the same rules that the world is using.

Well, I've been listening to the things that we say,
And I, I hear us mention words like fortune and fame,
And it makes me wonder if we're sure about the side we're choosing.
That's why I'm asking you

[Chorus:]
Who makes the rules for me and you,
When it's wrong or right is it black and white?
Who makes the rules for me and you;
It's our life at stake so we better know who makes the rules.

When I see people just like you and me,
Trying to live out the pictures they see on TV;
Gotta have a new car, new clothes, new love when they get tired of trying.

Well, I've been reading 'bout a different way,
Talking 'bout dying to live and losing to gain;
Seems like somebody's telling us the truth and somebody's lying.
I wanna know who.

[Chorus]

Two voices are calling out to you;
You're serving the one you're listening to,
So, tell me who, somebody tell me who.
