A Gangsters Parody with a Rat Race Rap

As I walk through the alley by the back of the house,
taking rubbish to the bins, I see a mouse.
So I stop with the bag in my hand and stand still,
And this mouse watches me without moving until
He told me a truth without saying a word,
I’m a rat in a race, locked in a heard,
like a bird in a cage, or a turd in box,
going around being bound up by the hands of a clock,
with a notion that oceans and the lines in the sand
marking borders with the orders saying where I can stand.
It’s absurd that this mouse has more freedom than me,
so I drop out the rat race to try being free.

I’ve been spending most my life living like a slave in paradise.
Why are we spending most our life living like slaves in paradise?

Freedom was the reason for a while I was sleeping on the street,
where I was fighting with the coppers I meet, on the beat,
to move the poor and clear the floor under a law to keep it neat,
I lost the battle but the war isn’t complete.
As the elite abuse their powers while they cower in towers,
made of Ivory and slavery, or sour twisted irony,
where state demands society adheres to noble hierarchy,
but I say hay, no fucking way, yo!
How do you make the choice how to earn a wage?
Join the rats in this race round a cage, when it’s staged?
Tony Blair now acts as though he’s won the race. Well tough luck, fuck, look, he needs a slap in the face form the Hague
or the wrist with a hand cuff,
but strangely enough he keeps winning more stuff,
like awards, and rewards, he’s not a good guy.
Acting philanthropic, I’m watching pigs fly!

We keep spending most our life living like slaves in paradise.
Why are we spending most our life living like slaves in paradise?

With the power you get money and the money you get power,
every minute, every day, of every second, every hour,
99% of people loose their powers to the rich ones, and what for?
Blair started a war, as a response to some knee jerk lies
we were fed and we kicked ass, to make money
for the upper class guys but instead
the better class of people just say no,
like Edward Snowden, my whistle blowing hero.

We keep spending most our life living like slaves in paradise.
Why are we spending most our life living like slaves in paradise?

Tell me why are we so blind to see our democracy is a plutocracy just read between the lines of hypocrisy
Tell me why are we so blind to see that the rat race is to make the poor face misery, slavery… And war, and what is it for? money for the rich.
