DramatiX – Rat Race

Official music video ‘Rat Race’ by ‘DramatiX’. Video by Plastic Horse.

Lyrics:

Everybody wakes up and their mind starts spinning and they don’t know what it is.
Diagnosis.
Depression, anxious, overstimulated nerves and senses but we don’t know why that is.
So, Monday through Friday we get up and go to work and we’re not sure why that is.
Yes we do!
It’s for money, it’s for family, basic living materials.
That’s how were taught to live.
Over the loud speaker: “Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome to the Rat Race!”

Who started the fire?
Who’s stoking the fire?
Who’s letting the fire burn?
Who started the fire?
Who’s stoking the fire?
Who’s putting the fire out?
Over the loud speaker: “Let it burn, let it burn!”

Everybody feels like their eyes are on fire and they don’t know what it is.
Ahhh!
Arms and legs are tangled up in wireless wires.
Now that doesn’t make sense.
Body is beeping technology is creeping all around and it’s closing in.
Woke up on a flat screen, living in a modern dream.
That’s how we’re taught to live
Over the loud speaker: “Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome to the Rat Race!”

Who started the fire?
Who’s stoking the fire?
Who’s letting the fire burn?
Who started the fire?
Who’s stoking the fire?
Who’s putting the fire out?
Over the loud speaker: “Let it burn, let it burn!”
Wait…There’s nothing left to burn.
