I Gotta Get Outta Here (4:20)

(Alice Cooper / Patterson Hood / Bob Ezrin)

I can't wait to wake up in my very own bed
Far away from the madness and my pounding head
The shiver up my spine and this feeling of dread

Well first I finally passed out, then I woke up in pain
Tangled in the wreckage of a runaway train
Was I the last man on earth or was I just insane?

I gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta get outta here
I gotta, gotta get outta here
I'm getting the message, it's totally clear
Yeah, I really gotta get outta here

(Get, get, get outta here)
(Get, get, get outta here)

I danced at a disco where the bodies all fell
Piled up to the sky, what a sulphurous smell
Man, the ghouls on the beach they were hotter than hell
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

I popped the old man, put a hole in his eye
Spent the night with the devil, she was such a bad guy
And if he has her way I will eternally fry
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

I gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta get outta here
I gotta, gotta get outta here
It's not complicated, yeah it's pretty damn clear
I really gotta get outta here

Just wanna be myself again and find my way out of this iniquitous den
I ain't having fun and I ain't making friends
I don't wanna know how this nightmare ends

I don't know why I'm here, why I've fallen from grace
I can't explain the burns, or the scars on my face
Somebody please wake me up and get me outta this place
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

I said I gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta get outta here
I gotta, gotta get outta here
They say isn't the message clear to you yet, sonny
"What part of dead don't you get?"
"Ah... excuse me???"
"What part of dead don't you get?"
"Whoa whoa whoa w-wait a minute"
"What part of dead don't you get?"
"I'm sorry, are you talking to me?"
"What part of dead don't you get?"
"Hey, I signed on for a nightmare"
"What part of dead don't you get?"
"Really? I mean that's a little drastic don't you think?"
"What part of dead don't you get?"
"I don't... I... I... hey... whoa..."
"What part of dead don't you get?"
"I get it... but, but I don't get it..."
"What part of dead don't you get?"
"I'm sinking here... Hello?"
"Yeah, yeah, yeah"
