I'm feeling the strain of getting nowhere again
Of living my life in the fast lane
And I'm feeling so tired, dreaming in vain
And watching my hopes in flames

I got to getaway
I got to getaway from the madness, yeah
I got to getaway
I got to getaway by myself
I got to getaway from the takers and the soap opera scenes
Now I got to getaway from the fakers who try so hard to please
Getaway from the city life and all the charade
Now I got to getaway from the busy life and all the masquerade
Getaway, I got to getaway from here

In the darkest of hours when the world is asleep
I lay here and wonder what's in store for me
'Cause you say that you want me and then you say that you don't
Today I believe you need me, probably tomorrow I think you won't

I got to getaway
I got to getaway from the madness, yeah
I just got to getaway
I got to getaway by myself
I got to getaway from the takers and the soap opera scenes
I got to getaway from the fakers who try too hard to please
Getaway from the city life and all the charade
Now I got to getaway from the busy life and all the masquerade
Getaway, I got to getaway from here

Come this time tomorrow I'll be far from here
I'm gonna find me a mountain, gonna breathe the air
I'm gonna shake off the sorrow, gonna shake off the gloom
I'm gonna leave behind the sadness, I'm gonna be better soon

But now I got to getaway
I got to getaway from the madness and lies
I got to getaway
I got to getaway by myself, ooh
I got to getaway from the takers and the soap opera scenes
I got to getaway from the fakers who try too hard to please
Getaway from the city life and all the charade
Now I got to getaway from the busy life and all the masquerade
Getaway, I got to getaway from here
