Running On Ice Lyrics

There's a lot of tension in this townI know it's building up inside of me
I've got all the symptoms and the side effectsOf city life anxiety
I could never understand why the urban attitudeIs so superior
In a world of high rise ambitionMost people's motives are ulterior
Sometimes I feel as though I'm running on icePaying the price too long
Kind of get the feeling that I'm running on iceWhere did my life go wrong
I'm a cosmopolitan sophisticateOf culture and intelligence
The culmination of technologyAnd civilized experience
But I'm carrying all the weight of all the useless junkA modern man accumulates
I'm a statistic in a systemThat a civil servant dominates
And all that means is that I'm running on iceCaught in a vice so strong
I'm slipping and sliding, cause I'm running on iceWhere did my life go wrong
You've got to runYou've got to runAs fast as I can climb
A new disaster every time I turn aroundAs soon as I get one fire put out
There's another building burning downThey say this highway's going my way
But I don't know where it's taking meIt's a bad waste, a sad case, a rat race
It's breaking meI get no traction cause I'm running on ice
It's taking me twice as longI get a bad reaction cause I'm running on ice
Where did my life go wrongYou've got to runYou've got to runRunning on ice
Running on iceRunning on iceRunning on ice
