It's a song. A song that doesn't really have a tune and which I can't sing but it's still a song. Loosely based on the idea of religious terrorism... thats what it means about breaking the rules because all religions tell you to love each other and not to kill but some people choose to ignore that.

Is it all a memory?
The words that you were saying
The tape just keeps replaying
You said we’d burn
When the secrets that we hide
No longer stayed inside
 
Was this your future?
The fire keeps on raging
In the war that you are waging
Was it life?
That set you on to this descent
Was this the future that you meant?
 
Just open you eyes
Everything you do is breaking the rules
The rules you made
The ones you promised to obey
You promised to be true
Now all that’s left to do
 
Is hold your head up high
‘Cus everything you’ve been told’s a lie
And the pastures you’re walking in
Looked so much greener from the other side
 
Did I see you standing there?
When London Bridge was burning
When all the world was mourning
Was it you I saw?
Throwing paper on the fire
To make the flames burn higher
 
Did I hear your voice?
When all else was screaming
You were just pretending
Did you laugh?
When you lit the spark
That you said would burn away the dark
 
Just open you eyes
Everything you do is breaking the rules
The rules you made
The ones you promised to obey
You promised to be true
Now all that’s left to do
 
Is hold your head up high
‘Cus everything you’ve been told’s a lie
And the pastures you’re walking in
Looked so much greener from the other side
 
Did you light each one a candle?
When they were lost and dieing
Did you hear the children crying?
Did you regret?
That you turned and walked away
That it was you that set the flame
 
Are you still living?
With the world that you dictated
And the future you created
Or do you cry?
Knowing now that you were wrong
And that you knew it all along
 
Just open you eyes
Everything you do is breaking the rules
The rules you made
The ones you promised to obey
You promised to be true
Now all that’s left to do
 
Is hold your head up high
‘Cus everything you’ve been told’s a lie
And the pastures you’re walking in
Looked so much greener from the other side
