Cool Hand Luke – Rats In The Cellar lyrics

You were not supposed to be here
You were not supposed to see this
This is not me, this is not me
This something acting on this body
You should not have come so suddenly
You should have knocked and you wouldn't have seen
Rats in the cellar, rats in the cellar
Just ignore the vermin and forget the whole thing
The truth wont hide
What sort of man am I?
To set these traps
And kill these rats
I must expose the lie
You didn't make these rats appear
When you don't see them, they're all still here
This is not you, this is not you
This is how I hide my sin from my fear
The truth wont hide
What sort of man am I?
To set these traps
And kill these rats
I must expose the lie
This ones inside
This ones inside
You can see it's beady eyes
This ones inside
This ones inside
I can't clean my charcoal soul
What I need is the hand of an exterminator
The truth wont hide
What sort of man am I?
To set these traps
And kill these rats
I must expose the lie
