    (Chorus)
    Riddle me who, riddle me why, answer me this,
    Who owns the chians that bind your wrists?
    Riddle me who, riddle me why, answer me this,
    Who built the machine that washed your brain?
    Like parents did before them
    Your parents did the same
    They said do your best, you must pass the test
    You must learn to play the game
    They scrimped and saved and suffered
    To send you off to school
    But if they'd had the cash they could've bought the class
    And a different set of rules

    Riddle me who, riddle me why, answer me this,
    Who owns the chians that bind your wrists?
    Riddle me who, riddle me why, answer me this,
    Who built the machine that washed your brain?

    They taught a simple system
    Why they had and you had not
    They said know your place, you can't win the race
    Life's an auction you're the lot
    If you'd ever thought to question
    They would never answer why
    When they buy your sweat, your are in their debt
    And they own you till you die

    Riddle me who, riddle me why, answer me this,
    Who owns the chians that bind your wrists?
    Riddle me who, riddle me why, answer me this,
    Who built the machine that washed your brain?

    You took hook line and sinker
    Everything they fed
    Worked day and night, for most your life
    To earn their daily bread
    Now you're old and weary,
    And you lay you down to sleep
    With body worn and spirit torn
    What's left is yours to keep

    Riddle me who, riddle me why, answer me this,
    Who owns the chians that bind your wrists?
    Riddle me who, riddle me why, answer me this,
    Who built the machine that washed your brain?
