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

    I think that he's killing other people to kind comfort with himself. But is actually hurting himself and that turns back to more killing. Don't get me wrong but i love papa roach. Last resort, kicking in teeth, and getting away with murder are my favs.

    I think he is sad so he is addicted to self destruction and he knows hes hurting himself but he just cant stop
