Gotta Get Away
The Offspring Lyrics


I'm getting edgy all the time
There's someone around just a step behind
It's kinda scary, the shape I'm in
The walls are shakin' and they're closing in

Too fast or a bit slow
I'm paranoid of people and it's starting to show
There's one guy that I can't shake
Over my shoulder is a big mistake
Sitting on the bed
Or lying wide awake
There's demons in my head
And it's no more than I can take

I think it's kinda weak
Saying all I know is
I gotta get away from me
I tell you something just ain't right

My head is on loose but my shoes are tight
Avoiding my friends cause they all bug
Life is like a riddle and I'm really stumped
If you reason, don't you know

Your own preoccupation is where you'll go
I think I'm being followed, I look around
It's only my shadow creepin' on the ground

I'm getting edgy all the time
There's someone around me just a step behind
It's kinda scary the , the shape I'm in
The walls are shakin'and they' re closing in
Too fast or a bit too slow
I'm paranoid of people and it's starting to show
There' s one guy that I can't shake
Over my shoulder is a big mistake
Sitting on the bed
Or lying wide awake
There's demons in my head
And it's more than I can take
I think I'm on a roll
But I think it's kinda weak
Saying all I know is
I gotta get away from me
I tell you something just ain't right
My head is on loose but my shoes are tight
Avoiding my fiends cause they all bug
Life is like a riddle and I'm really stumped
If you reason, don't you know
Your own preoccupation is where you'll go
I think I'm being followed, I look around
It's only my shadow creepin' on the ground

Still say this is the best Offspring song.

@Mike Yates Gone Away and Self Esteem. And maybe The Kids Aren't All Right.

Personally I think the kids aren't alright is their best, but this is a great one too

I'm not a big can of The Offspring but LOVE this song. It's way above the rest of their songs.
