Lab Rat Race

Lab Rat Race - Well it’s a hard pill to swallow that we aren’t promised tomorrow; but the rent is still due today. Sure, you’re losing your mind but you still made it to work on time; That’s just the nature of the rat race. Corporate Boss treats you like you’re nothing but mere profit. Remind him of your name, I bet he’s already forgot it. Who did he impress to get a corner office? Maybe he sold his soul or maybe he just lost it. Guess that’s the price you have to pay to send your kids to college. That’s enough to break a spirit, I’d say. Roger from marketing is on line two, selling his pitch for the cure to all their sorrows. “It’ll take the edge off of existence. Don’t mind the long list of warnings in lighter ink that follows.” “Worst case scenario, you lose your mind forever. A price they’re willing to pay just to possibly feel better.” That’s a cruel way to fill your pockets, I’d say.
