I love this song; the line is from the Smashing Pumpkin's song, "Bullet With Butterfly Wings." I think Thoreau would have agreed with this when he lived in the city and existed as a money slave like most of us. He railed against the system but, while he was there, was simply still a rat in a cage of dependance and materialism.
