about

This song is about the Golden Rule: treat others the way you wish to be treated.

lyrics

We all grow up with blank slates of morals and how to live.
We’re taught to share, to be respectful and how to give
Our lives away, our lives away.

We’re taught to treat others the same way we want to be.
But there’s a hidden trap preventing others from being quite so free,
It’s hard to see the blame’s on me.

There is so much arrogance implied
In a rule that tells us to only look inside,
So why should I be so bold
As to follow this rule made of fool’s gold?

It’s easy to get lost in the fog of our ideals,
And objectivity won’t tell us how it feels
To be someone else, be someone else.

It’s easy to think that we know best for ones we love,
Or sometimes we find guidance from an entity from up above
And push comes to shove when they disapprove.

There is so much arrogance implied
In a rule that tells us to only look inside,
So why should I be so bold
As to follow this rule made of fool’s gold?
