Excuse me citizen
What are you looking for?
Is there something I can find for you?
I'll have your back to your dull reality in no time
But before you go

Is it freedom, is it love?
Forgiveness from your god above
On and on and on I hear about the rat race
And I don't care to place

Its always on your mind
You say it doesn't matter
Withstand the test of time
Always focused never scattered

Maybe I am missing something
Someone please just fill me in
All this greed and competition
What the hell are we trying to win?

Is it to gain respect from all your peers?
Playing on your thoughts, dreams, and fears
And I know it's okay now, take a breath
I think they're gone and its okay to rest

On and on and on it's just a cat and mouse chase
And now you're losing face

Okay, you win
I guess the story's ending
No way, not fair
I can see that you don't care

Maybe I am missing something
Someone please just fill me in
All this greed and competition
What the hell are we trying to win?

You've got regrets
Open wound debts
You cant explain
But you feel the pain and it's tearing you to shreds
You're seeing red
You made this bed
And it wont change until you spit out what you're fed

OK, you win
I guess the story's ending
No way, Not fair
I can see that you don't care

Maybe I am missing something
Someone please just fill me in
All this greed and competition
What the hell are we trying to win?

There's no justice
They don't trust us
