Somewhere beyond happiness and sadness
I need to calculate
What creates my own madness

And I'm addicted to your punishment
And your the master
And I am waiting for disaster

I feel irrational
So confrontational
To tell the truth I am,
Getting away with murder

It is impossible
To never tell the truth
But the reality is
I'm getting away with murder

Getting away
Getting away
Getting away
With murder

I drink my drink and I don't even want to
I think my thoughts when
I don't even need to
I never look back because I don't even want to
And I don't need to
Because I'm getting away with murder

I feel irrational,
So confrontational,
To tell the truth I am,
Getting away with murder

It is impossible,
To never tell the truth,
But the reality is,
I'm getting away with murder

Getting away x7
Getting away with murder

And somewhere beyond happiness and sadness
I need to calculate
What creates my own madness
And I'm addicted to your punishment
And your the master
And I am craving this disaster

I feel irrational
So confrontational
To tell the truth I am,
Getting away with murder

It is impossible
To never tell the truth
But the reality is
I'm getting away with murder

Getting away
Getting away
Getting away

I feel irrational
So confrontational
To tell the truth I am,
Getting away with murder

It is impossible
To never tell the truth
But the reality is
I'm getting away with murder

    Also, I think they have every right to do whatever the hell they want, whether they're heavy, soft, emo, punk, or anything else. In my opinion, that's the best thing about rock bands: the good ones never care what people think, as long as they enjoy what they're doing and like their own music.

    The sense I get from this song is that it's about someone very self-destructive, that the "murder" he's getting away with is not entirely literal, but more that he's slowly killing himself. But that's just my opinion - I could be completely wrong. Whatever the lyrics mean, I love the song. They were awesome at Rock on the Range - not only did they sound good, but they REALLY got the crowd and the mosh pits going. :D
