Billy Joel

Running on Ice

 

 

 

There's a lot of tension in this town

I know it's building up inside of me

I've got all the symptoms and the side effects

Of city life anxiety

 

I could never understand why the urban attitude

Is so superior

In a world of high rise ambition

Most people's motives are ulterior

 

Sometimes I feel as though I'm running on ice

Paying the price too long

Kind of get the feeling that I'm running on ice

Where did my life go wrong

 

I'm a cosmopolitan sophisticate

Of culture and intelligence

The culmination of technology

And civilized experience

 

But I'm carrying the weight of all the useless junk

A modern man accumulates

I'm a statistic in a system

That a civil servant dominates

 

And all that means is that I'm running on ice

Caught in the vise so strong

I'm slipping and sliding, cause I'm running on ice

Where did my life go wrong

 

You've got to run

You've got to run

 

As fast as I can climb

A new disaster every time I turn around

As soon as I get one fire put out

There's another building burning down

 

They say this highway's going my way

But I don't know where it's taking me

It's a bad waste, a sad case, a rat race

It's breaking me

 

I get no traction cause I'm running on ice

It's taking me twice as long

I get a bad reaction cause I'm running on ice

Where did my life go wrong

 

You've got to run

You've got to run

 

Running on ice

Running on ice

Running on ice

Running on ice
