Intro: E   | A A - G - F#m - E - D - E E | A A - G - F#m - E - D - E E |

      E                             G  
I was lost just wandering round downtown  
                        A  
Many people were pushing me around  
      C           D             A A - G - F#m - E - D - E E  
Hate spreads just like infection  
      E                          G  
Those rats jumping on and off my back  
                          A  
Fat black rats holding me down  
      C       D  
I see rats in every direction  
A  A    G  F#m    E    D EE  
No time to catch your breath  
A A    G     F#m   E     D E E  
Crazy people lost their  heads  
D D     C#    D  C# D  E E   D D  C# D    C# D      E  
Masses trampling on my feet, inconsiderate in their heat    
         E                         G 
Those rats breeding angriness and spite  
                         A         C           D         A A - G - F#m - E - D - E E 
Never have done anything right for people like you and me  
        E                          G 
Walk over all the people you can't see 
                                   A  
If they die there's more bread for me  
        C            D                 
Like snakes crawling through the grass  


A  A    G  F#    E    D E E  
No time to catch your breath  
AA    G     F#   E     D E E  
Crazy people lost their  heads  
D D     C#    D  C# D  E E   D D  C# D    C# D      E  
Masses trampling on my feet, inconsiderate in their heat    
  
      E                           G 
Those rats breeding angriness and spite  
                         A         C           D          
Never have done anything right for people like you and me  
A A  G    F#m E   D    E  E  
See that face man look at me,  
A A   G   F#m E  D    E  E  
he's much too selfish to see  
D D  C# D   C#   D   E   E 
Once he was warm and was kind  
D D  C# D   C#   D   E   E 
Now all he has got is a pinstripe mind  

A A  G    F#m E   D    E  E  
See that face man look at me, 
A A   G   F#m E  D    E  E  
he's much too selfish to see  
D D  C# D   C#   D   E   E 
Once he was warm and was kind 
D D  C# D   C#   D   E   E 
Now all he has got is a pinstripe mind
