"Rat Race" as written by and Maida....
One, two, picking up the pace
Three, four, rat is in the race
I'm on the land, I'm on the chase
I'm on the hunt, I've got no time to waste

One clue gotta take the bait
Burst through all the barricades
It's got teeth, it's got fangs
It's got me in the palm of its hands

I said, I want you
I said, I want you
Oh, do you know what I mean'
Oh, do you know what I mean'

My eyes are hollow
My bones beggin' for sleep
I won't make it through tomorrow
I'm useless with these wooden wings

This love, gotta break it down
Chew it up, spit it out
I don't know where it could be
I don't know how it found me

Arms wide crucified, crucifix
It's gonna fix it tonight
She said, it's coming for me
I threw away my church key

My eyes are hollow
My bones beggin' for sleep
I won't make it through tomorrow
I'm useless with these wooden wings

I'll ride away
On a cloud made out of hopeless treasure
I'll smile and wave
At his golden gates
