Can’t get enjoyment
From collecting unemployment
You can’t even hold your head up with pride
Your life is getting harder
You don’t wanna be a martyr
Though you think you might be dying inside

You’ve got to find a way to be free
From the heartless pain of a cold society, yeah
Your life’s set at a cruel pace
You keep wonderin’ how you got caught up into this rat race

Get an education
With a younger generation
To make up for the one missed in your youth
The pain is eased with liquor
But you’re really getting sicker
Though you try to hide your face from the truth

You’ve got to find a way to be free
From the heartless pain of a cold society, yeah
Your life’s set at a cruel pace
You keep wonderin’ how you got caught up into this rat race

The world just keeps on turning
While your questions keep on burning
But you don’t know where the answers will be found
So you come to the conclusion
That there are no quick solutions
And confusion keeps your head spinnin’ around

You’ve got to find a way to be free
From the heartless pain of a cold society, yeah
Your life’s set at a cruel pace
You keep wonderin’ how you got caught up into this rat race
Wonderin’ why you were born into this rat race

Rat race
Rat race
Caught up in this rat race

You’ve got to find a way to be free
From the heartless pain of a cold society, yeah
You keep goin’ at a cruel pace
You keep wonderin’ how you got caught up into this rat race
