Getaway



Verse 1
In this big city there is nowhere to run,
I've got no money, but I've got a gun.
If I don't get my way,
it's clear I'll kill someone.
Don't want to hurt them, I just want them scared.
Give me their money and I'll be walking on air.
I'll make my getaway,
but if they get in my way I'll use this gun.

Chorus
Don't want to, I swear,
but if I have to, I dare.
Got to get away
I have to get away.

Verse 2
Here it is dirty and the people are so mean,
I've seen a brochure of somewhere that's clean.
I've got to get away,
before I'll kill someone.
Maybe it's the case of the grass that is greener,
If the cops ever catch me, I'm sure I won't leave here.
I've got to get away,
just one last job I say,
but that's what I always say.
This time will be the one.

Chorus
Don't want to, I swear,
but if I have to, I dare.
Got to get away
I have to get away.

Verse 3
Me I don't like it, but it's kind of fun,
my heart's starts pounding when I pull out my gun.
if I don't get my way,
I know I'll kill someone.
No decent jobs in this city of slime,
if it's legal, you won't make a dime.
it's a sin they say,
and I won't get away,
no I won't get away,
if I kill someone.
