Rat Race Lyrics

Wake me from my sleep, a cautionary tale
Walk in infancy, a way to derail
I wanted to be free and I wanted only you
The walls are falling down

And somebody says, "Ah give a little love
Give a little love, but take your time"
Somebody says, "Yes give a little love
Give a little love, but take your time"

A private life, well come on now
I said, "Livin' gets to be just like a rat race, rat race"
So come on I'm-a-read between the lines
Fierce struggler a natural one a tough job
Gets to be just like a rat race, rat race
So come on, I'm a locked up in myself

Check before rinsing
Check before we work
A childproof the scene
No screams can be heard
The roof is caving in
And the Space between our hearts
The walls are falling down

Somebody says, "Ah give a little love
Give a little love take your time"
Somebody sighs yes, give a little love
Give a little love but take your time, now

A private life, well come on now
I said, "Livin' it gets to be just like a rat race, rat race"
So come on I'm-a-read between the lines
Fierce struggler a natural one a tough job
Gets to be just like a rat race, rat race
So come on, I'm a locked up in myself

It's a rat, its a rat, its a rat race
It's a rat, it's a rat race
It's a rat, its a rat, its a rat race
It's a rat race

Ah life living in a rat race
Now come on
Life are you living in a rat race?
C'mon, here inside yourself

Well a private life, well come on now
I said, "Livin' it gets to be just like a rat race, rat race"
So come on I'm-a-read between the lines
Fierce struggler a natural one a tough job
It gets to be just like a rat race, rat race
So come on, I'm a locked up in myself

A private life, come on now
I said, "Livin' it gets to be just like a rat race, rat race"
So come on I'm-a-read between the lines
Fierce struggler a natural one a tough job
It gets to be just like a rat race, rat race
So come on, I'm a locked up in myself

I'm a locked up in myself
I'm a locked up in myself
