Too much of us caught inna rat trap we ah fe bust out ah dat
Too much of us caught inna rat race ah fe bust out ah dat

They're in a contest and a competition
Caught in the snare material suction
If what you've got is all you mention
Move an go way I tell you, move an go way I tell you
Pushing and pulling juggling it no stop
There's always free cheese inside a rattrap.
You better watch before the snap goes pop
Move an go way I tell you, move an go way I tell you

Don't even bother with the boasting
Just take care, coz this ya rat race ain't fair
Even the saints them are falling
So beware! You'll find no winners in there

You know its gunner get you whoa
And it will never let you go
You know who its gunner get you whoa
And it will never let you go

Rattrap we can't escape from it whoa!
And it will never let you go whoa whoa
Rattrap we can't escape from it whoa
It'll never it'll never, we inna we inna
Rattrap we can't escape from it whoa!
And it will never let you go whoa whoa
Rattrap we can't escape from it whoa
And it will never let you go, can't get out of there

Chatty people they will talk all day
Talk your business and they feel no way
Elaborate and make up the story
Move an go way I tell you, move an go way I tell you
You're always watching what they got next door
If you're belly is full and you still want more
Helping the rich an you ah down press the poor
Move an go way I tell you, move an go way I tell you


Don't even bother with the boasting
Just take care, coz this ya rat race ain't fair
Even the saints them are falling
So beware! You'll find no winners in there

You know its gunner get you whoa
And it will never let you go
You know who its gunner get you whoa
And it will never let you go

Rattrap we can't escape from it whoa!
And it will never let you go whoa whoa
Rattrap we can't escape from it whoa
It'll never it'll never, we inna we inna
Rattrap we can't escape from it whoa!
And it will never let you go whoa whoa
Rattrap we can't escape from it whoa
And it will never let you go

It's a rat race; it's a rat race
Someone come and tell me wha de gworn with the human race?
Fury breaks the chain! Let us go.

    General CommentThis song looks like it's about capitalism and government in general, and how life seems to be an unfair race against other people where you always lose.

    "You're always watching what they got next door
    If you're belly is full and you still want more
    Helping the rich an you ah down press the poor"

    obviously its not about Socialism or Communism, and the claims are too broad and off target to be about atheism. The reason I feel like its about government is because they seem to be talking about an object, not just an idea, that is going to get you, and life is too much of an idea to do all the things they're describing. Besides, life doesn't make you help the rich.

    General CommentMy favorite Skindred song. It has the perfect blend of his reggae voice and metal instrumentation. The song has so much energy.

    Song MeaningI think this song is about how that we are stuck in our problems we have created and it will eventually get us in the future like how we are slowly destroying the Earth and mankind will slowly die with it.

    "And it will never let you go."
    As in we cant escape from what we have done, it wont let us go.

    "So beware, you'll find no winners in there."
    You will find no one that can win in escaping.. blah blah :/

    I don't know im not good at this stuff. :P
