Song Lyrics

I was lost just wandering round downtown

Many people pushing me around

Hate spreads just like infection

Those rats jumping on and off my back

Fat black rats holding me down

I see rats in every direction

No time to catch your breath

Crazy people lost their heads

Masses trampling on my feet, inconsiderate in their heat

Those rats breeding angriness and spite

Never have done anything right for people like you and me

Walk over all the people you can`t see

If they die there`s more bread for me

Like snakes crawling through the grass

No time to catch your breath

Crazy people lost their heads

Masses trampling on my feet, inconsiderate in their heat

Those rats breeding angriness and spite

Never have done anything right for people like you and me

See that face man look at me, he`s much too selfish to see

Once he was warm and was kind

Now all he has got is a pinstripe mind

See that face man look at me, he`s much too selfish to see

Once he was warm and was kind

Now all he has got is a pinstripe mind
