Who are They?

I was listening to music in the car today and happened to choose to listen to Jem. I love Jem's music. I had it dropped into my lap by one of my best friends and roommates our freshman year of school. And while I've loved it since then, and can sing most of the words along to her songs, I properly listened to them today. A bunch of them stuck out, but I particularly loved the lyrics to They. Have a listen to it and if you care to, read the lyrics. Here they are.

Who made up all the rules?
We follow them like fools,
Believe them to be true,
Don't care to think them through

And I'm sorry, so sorry
I'm sorry it's like this
I'm sorry, so sorry
I'm sorry we do this

And it's ironic too
'Cause what we tend to do
Is act on what they say
And then it is that way

And I'm sorry, so sorry
I'm sorry it's like this
I'm sorry, so sorry
I'm sorry we do this

Who are they?
Where are they?
How can they possibly
Know all this?
Who are they?
Where are they?
How can they possibly
Know all this?

Do you see what I see?
Why do we live like this?
Is it because it's true
That ignorance is bliss?

Who are they?
Where are they?
How do they
Know all this?
And I'm sorry, so sorry
I'm sorry it's like this

Do you see what I see?
Why do we live like this?
Is it because it's true
That ignorance is bliss?

And who are they?
Where are they?
How can they
Know all this?
And I'm sorry, so sorry
I'm sorry we do this

That's all for now, but I'll probably share some more of her work before too long. :)
