Lyrics:

Look what you get from following leaders,
who lead from the rear - where are they now?

Chorus
What did we learn from history lessons?
How to sit quiet at the back of the class.
With so many things open to question,
it's too late to cry - there's no-one to ask.

Life's an education - a multiple equation,
everyone finds their own solution in the end.
"To be or not to be" is a very lengthy questionm
has anybody got a sharpened pencil they can lend?

CHORUS - 

Marching in time down a production line,
what did that teach you about life in a dole queue?

The Law of Relativity - (life's relative misery),
The Law of Probability - (it's probably contrived),
Newton's Law of Gravity - (we face a grave reality),
The law that runs the jungle - (only the strong survive).

Look what you get from following leaders,
who lead from the rear - where are they now?

The path of least resistance - a bland text book existence,
don't expect to find the answers printed at the back.
The only sound advice that's carried me through life - 
when the cards are stacked against you -
play the joker in the pack.

CHORUS - 

Marching in time down a production line,
what did that teach you about life in a dole queue?

There you go! Hope you enjoy it
