Rat Race - Lyrics

Waking up, I ‘m faced with the things I should do
My dreams were so nice, I wish they'd come true
My perfect day is a clean empty page
To do what I want and get out of this cage
I'm gonna' leave this maze, leave this rat race behind

Rat race, rat race, rat race
Rat race, rat race, rat race

We're told what to buy, except when we sleep
Business makes money and keep us all sheep
We're bound up by rules that curtail our lives
We're taxed more each year while the government thrives
I'm gonna' leave this maze, leave this rat race behind

Rat race, rat race, rat race
Rat race, rat race, rat, race

Gonna' kick off my shoes, walk in the rain, turn off my fuse
And slow down time to find a sweeter life
Why don't you come with me
We'll lie down under the willow tree
And see how good the world could be
We'll get away and say goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Rat race must end, rat race must cease
Leave us alone so we can live our lives in peace
Rat race must end, rat race must cease
Leave us alone so we can live our lives in peace

What ever happened to good common sense
People make mistakes at my expense
I'll move to an Island and live off the land
Sing my own music, make up my own band
I'm gonna' leave this maze, leave this rat race behind

I'll become a dragonfly and escape this swamp when I fly up high
And slow down time to find a sweeter life
Why don't you come with me
We'll hang out in the willow tree
And see how good the world could be
We'll get away and say goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye
