Nobody’s Fool

Nobody's Fool

Nothing follows nothing's general rule
except the rule that says we're all unsaved.
No one's no one's free, and I'm nobody's fool.

We're each a mutant gene in some strange pool
inheriting what's sick, vile, and depraved.
Nothing follows nothing's general rule.

Our energies run low, our passions cool;
we charge the highest for what's most enslaved.
No one's no one's free, and I'm nobody's fool.

We're trained to play the game as taught in school
yet all we learn's what won't act well-behaved.
Nothing follows nothing's general rule.

Still someone else's something makes us drool
as though we merit anything we've craved.
No one's no one's free, and I'm nobody's fool.

So you want me here to play some normal tool
for normal use, my stock disclaimers waived?
Nothing follows nothing's general rule.
No one's no one's free, and I'm nobody's fool.
