They said you were an accident
But you know better
This world will swallow you
It makes no difference to the starving millions
They will follow you

On the path of least resistance
You’ll find a way to ease your conscience
On the path of least resistance
You’ll find a way to please yourself
Always please yourself
Always save yourself

So grin and bear those greasy handshakes
What difference does another year make?
Grin and bear those greasy handshakes
Three weeks ‘til you’re on holiday…

Get down get down on your knees
There’s people dropping like flies on the streets
When it’s chewed you up and spat you out
You’ll know what this miserable life’s about
And when the rats take over the town
They’ll build their nests from university gowns
The city is dead whether you like it or not
