Only The Fools

You firmly believe in that your heart will not make miscues
You claim you’ll always be truthful and play by the rules
You defend your integrity and your conscious mind
You are outraged by the scheming the cheating and the lies
But your blind faith in others is naïve and may one day hurt you

Only the fools play by the rules
When the stakes are high
Are you cunning enough to hide
What’s on your mind
Only the fools play by the rules
When the stakes are high
To stay on top of the game
You have to cheat and lie

When all is fair in love and war, there’s no excuse
You either dare or die, win or loose
Cause everyone’s a player, every man is for himself
So look for their deception and try to decode their tells
You might as well get off your high horse it is of no use

Only the fools play by the rules
When the stakes are high
Are you cunning enough to hide
What’s on your mind
Only the fools play by the rules
When the stakes are high
To stay on top of the game
You have to cheat and lie

Everyone’s a player, a schemer and a liar
Deceit and deception will win you the prize
Break all the rules, cross all the lines
Jump all the barriers, dare or die

Only the fools play by the rules
When the stakes are high
Are you cunning enough to hide
What’s on your mind
Only the fools play by the rules
When the stakes are high
To stay on top of the game
You have to cheat and lie
