Winger – Rat Race lyrics

Trapped in this town where the sun never shines
In a train underground we're lost in the tunnel of time
Day after day at the sound of the gun we fight for positions
Elbow to elbow we run

Our names and our numbers are scrolled in our backs
Don't ever look down man you'll fall through the cracks

Spinning our wheels in this rat race
Shifting gears they go round and round
You know how it feels at this fast pace
Run for your life you can never slow down

I'm down on my luck I'm falling behind
I was beating the clock but I've run out of, run out of time
I'm weak in the knees, my heart's gonna fail
First man to the future, or last man left dead on the trail

There's sweat in my eyes, and blood on my hands
It's run for your life man, as fast as you can

Spinning our wheels in this rat race
Shifting gears they go round and round
You know how it feels at this fast pace
Run for your life you can never slow down

The whole world is turning at break your neck speed
Can't get what you want man, you get get what you need

Run, rat run
Run, rat run (go)
Run, rat run

Spinning our wheels in this rat race
Shifting gears they go round and round
You know how it feels at this fast pace
Run for your life you can never slow down

Spinning our wheels in this rat race
Shifting gears they go round and round
You know how it feels at this fast pace
Run for your life you can never slow down
