Run away from all your boredom
Run away from all your whoredom
And wave your worries
And cares goodbye

All it takes is one decision
A lot of guts, a little vision
To wave your worries
And cares goodbye

It's a maze for rats to try
It's a maze for rats to try
It's a race
A race for rats
A race for rats to die
It's a race
A race for rats
A race for rats to die

Sick and tired of Maggie's Farm
She's a bitch with broken arms
To wave your worries
And cares goodbye

It's a maze for rats to try
It's a maze for rats to try
It's a race
A race for rats
A race for rats to die
It's a race
A race for rats
A race for rats to die

Run away

I mostly like Placebo, but not this one. 
The musical equivalent of Ipecac.

Can\'t stand these guys. I\'ve seen them in concert (opening for Stabbing Westward) and still can\'t stand them... he sounds like the lead singer from Rush, all nose...

Ahhhh.... two LA guys like it. Figures. SoCal.
Alright, Van Morrison it ain\'t, but it isn\'t horrible. It ranks an \"acceptable\" from me.

Annoying, adenoidal vocals. No redeeming qualities.
I was in a concert last saturday. Not bad but I\'d enjoyed more old songs. \"Slave to the wage\" was played and it was one of the best moments. Everybody was singing. However, only a version of \"Teenage angst\" wasn\'t enough for the first album. Not playing \"Come home\", \"Bionic\" or \"Nancy boy\" is unforgiven.

this band has grown on me in a huge way, thanks to RP.
Placebo, nice change of pace for RP. Variety is the spice!
