'Break 'Dem Rules' was written by Maude Morris, and performed by Reuben Hudson for the New Zealand web-series 'Lovely Little Losers' on YouTube. The original video can be found here on YouTube:


You have waited months for this to come,
To see us here, we've come so far,
We've opened up our eyes to see
There's nothing left we need to fear

And they can't tell us
How to live this way
We'll break the rules
And we've been jealous,
Struck by madness
We can break the rules
It's what we're meant to do

You can stand apart, ignore your head
Follow your heart, 'cos it knows best,
If it sounds right take a chance on life
Take that weight off of your shoulders
You can rest your head on mine


The instructions in life aren't as clear as they seem
You've got a complete checklist, not a complete me
So don't wait for leaders, you can do this alone
If you have no fear, it'll become known
