"Rat race" in lyrics
They only love each other when they hate the same things
That's why I'm lying here, there's nothing awesome to miss
Only panic alarm in the rat race, how they still sugar coat everything
Grotty jobs in the beehive but they sacrifice their life to the queen
The nights when you just want to forget everything--
The way you hold back your tears is cute
People are driving themselves crazy in the rat race out there--
Don't worry about your problems, just dance!
Often when I’m hit by sudden realizations , i would feel relieved
I won’t give up, I can’t give up
I’m torn, caught between the rock and a hard place life’s a rat race
God knows how much I’ve been through
Half awake I switch on the Television. A flood of images streams into my weary head.
Murders, burglary, and fatal accidents. New fads and idols. I don’t want to hear it.
I don’t have any time for relaxation. Life stuck in the rat race is wearing us down.
All I want is something nice for a change. All we want is something nice for a change.
I've become a show-off, like some kind of vain exhibitionist.
At the end of the rat race, we're ashamed of the meaninglessness of such an existence.
But in the end, we've all contributed to the intention of the masses.
