My World of Alcatraz


(Hazen/Burgess)


I'm all tired of being just a slave
Working in the cradle, an' working in the grave
I'm looking for some.....a new way to go
I'm leaving just as fast as I can get out on that road

Gonna get the place I find to be a part of me
Living this way is like living on TV
I can't believe I need to beat the man who has
Everything in life except my world of Alcatraz

And all the jealousies of money seem to glorify the lie
Infecting and injecting a claim to purify
They'll grab you and hold you, they want to see you crawl
They'll make the very things in life a costly free for all
So they'll kill you in the office, brush-fire you at the Kar Kleen
They'll take the fun out of insanity and they'll rob you of your last dream

They'll frame you like a picture painting
A corporate ladder with no rungs waiting
It's time for you to stop self-hating
Your one true love just died deflating

So what are you going to do? - You don't have a clue now
What's in store for you, what are you going to do now?

I'm searching for the place that is the heart of me
Deep inside maybe I'll find a shred of integrity
I can't believe I need to be the man who has
Everything in life except my world of Alcatraz

You know it's the actual money, that's what it really takes
And there ain't too many who are good at money makes
I'll sweat a mighty river and I'll bleed a thousand lakes
When I'm all shacked up squarely with those heebie-jeebie shakes

So they'll kill you in the town hall - batter and fry you at the KFC
They'll bug your phone, they'll read your mail and they'll fill you with uncertainty
Then they'll tell you where you're headed and all that other jazz
But, I'll tell you, I'd rather be in my world of Alcatraz
In my world of Alcatraz, in my world of Alcatraz, in my world of Alcatraz
