A rat in a maze, I learned my trail
I go to work, and I check my mail
When the time comes, I always vote
I play the game, don’t rock the boat

I read the headlines as they go by
I accept the norm, though with a sigh
I stop at the stop sign, almost every time
I don’t write it down unless it’s a rhyme

I watch all the news about all the killing
Even though such news is so unfulfilling
Caught in a maze, I was born this way
No more can I do, no more can I say
