food chain lyrics – eric hutchinson

don’t let this affect the game
every five months we act the same
but i never get used to putting you off
and no one could have scripted this
who knows what will come of it
i refuse to believe it’s all just a waste

just look around
everybody’s on the food chain, funny
but from day to day we get from bottom to top
and if you get lost, just start over again
but we don’t ever get to
no, we don’t ever get to stop

i wake up in this oblivious state
go to sleep, try to save some face
cause i’ve never one for acting’ naive
so what we got nothing to prove
why on earth would we soften the mood
do we think that this wire is better left live

cause look around
everybody’s on this food chain, funny
but from day to day, we get from bottom to top
and if you get lost, just start over again
but we don’t ever get to
no, we don’t ever get to stop

i woulda known better if i was on the outside
i woulda known better if i was on the outside lookin’ in, lookin’ in
but this chain just eats away at the people who use it
no one gonna say that it’s easy to lose it
tough to say who we need when it’s not even on the outside

everybody’s on the food chain, funny
but from day to day, we get from bottom to top
and if you get lost, just start over again
but we don’t ever get to
no, we don’t ever get to…
