Caught up in the everyday
routine you sold your life away
and find yourself in your place
in the midst of the human rat race

Run down by the everyday
Spit out by the commonplace
Taken for another waste
Looked over just one more face

Fight!
or be beaten cause you can't keep up
Fall!
cause you’re not strong enough to keep up
Run!
but you’re too slow, they’ll keep up
Drown!
cause you’re too weak to hold up

Caught up in the everyday
routine you sold your life away
and find yourself in your place
in the midst of the human rat race

Run down by the everyday
Spit out by the commonplace
Taken for another waste
Looked over just one more face

Fight!
or give in and try to keep your head up
Fall!
You’ve grown to weak to even stand up
Run!
you can never escape ‘cause they’ll keep up
Drown!
in the weight you’re expected to hold up
