There's a lot of tension in this town
I've got all the symptoms and the side effects

Is so superior
Most people's motives are ulterior
Sometimes I feel as though I'm running on ice
Kind of get the feeling that I'm running on ice

Of culture and intelligence
And civilized experience
But I'm carrying the weight of all the useless junk
I'm a statistic in a system

Caught in the vise so strong
Where did my life go wrong
You've got to run

A new disaster every time I turn around
There's another building burning down
They say this highway's going my way
It's a bad waste, a sad case, a rat race

It's taking me twice as long
Where did my life go wrong
You've got to run

Running on ice
Running on ice
