Kyle is a cashier in the corner village store
Seven days a week he works
Just pushing on a cash drawer
The gambling debts and empty bets
Have chained him to this place
Now all the money he touches now
Gets locked in the store safe

Mr. Claire was a millionaire and a caption of his field
On his farm a lucky charm
Made all the cash crops yield
Then one July Uncle Sam came by
And shut that farmer down
Cause Mr. Clair had not declared
All the cash crops in his ground

Cause there’s always someone
Pullin' on the reins
Cause there’s always someone
Pullin' on, pullin' on, pullin' on

Look around and what you’ll see
Is everybody tied down to some degree
We’re like links upon an endless chain
Someone’s gotta pull our reins
Look around and what you’ll see
Is everybody tied down to some degree
We’re like links upon an endless chain
Someone’s gotta pull our reins
Someone’s gotta pull our reins

Dr. Lee has a family and a nice house in the hills
No money in his pool
He uses it to drown in bills
Every single day, more pour in
Many mouths to feed
But not enough to swallow them

Cause there’s always someone
Pullin' on the reins
Cause there’s always someone
Pullin' on, pullin' on, pullin' on

I don’t know, but the things I’ve seen
Now I’m a younger man and I might be green
But for many years and the time between
We’re all the gears on the fixed machine

Look around and what you’ll see
Is everybody tied down to some degree
We’re like links upon an endless chain
Someone’s gotta pull our reins
Look around and what you’ll see
Is everybody tied down to some degree
We’re like links upon an endless chain
Someone’s gotta pull our reins
Someone’s gotta pull our reins

I don’t know, but I must say
Don’t need no one now to guide my way
Gonna sing my song, gonna work all day
And no one's gonna pull my reins
I don’t know, but I must say
Don’t need no one now to guide my way
Gonna sing my song, gonna work all day
And no one's gonna pull my reins
And no one's gonna pull my reins
