Lyrics:

There's an evil virus that's threatening mankind

Not state of the art, a serious state of the mind

The muggers, the backstabbers, the two faced elite

A menace to society, a social disease

Rape of the mind is a social disorder

The cynics, the apathy oneupmanship order

Watching beginnings of social decay

Gloating or sneering at life's disarray

Eating away at your own self esteem

Pouncing on every word that you might be saying

Rape of the mind is a social disorder

The cynics, the apathy oneupmanship order

Superficially smiling a shake of the hand

As soon as the back is turned treachery is planned

Rape of the mind is a social disorder

The cynics, the apathy oneupmanship order

Watching beginnings of social deacy

Gloating or sneering...at life's disarray

When every good thing's laid to waste

By all the jealousy and hate

By all the acid wit and rapier lies

And every time you think you're safe

And when you go to turn away

You know they're sharpening all their paper knives

All in your mind

All in your head

Try to relate it

All in your mind

All in your head

Try to escape it

Without a conscience they destroy

And that's a thing that they enjoy

They're a sickness that's in all our minds

They want to sink the ship and leave

The way they laugh at you and me

You know it happens all the time

All in your mind

All in your head

Try to relate it

All in your mind

All in your head

Try to escape it

The rats in the cellar you know who you are...

Or do you?

Watching beginnings of social decay...
