Hey all!

So in Sell My Soul, there's that part near the end where Peter goes:

"America's great now, if you don't talk back you hide your face,
 Crawl in rubble and smile and scorn at that snail-paced creature going up
and down walls."

In the version on Scream In Blue, he says it differently.  Can anyone make
out that second part?
It's kinda like:

"Smile and scorn and snail's pace now, something something something
something up and down walls."

What is that?
