Intro (Prison guard) : Open up 6 … He’s gone!

 

Everywhere I turn, no matter where I look,

The system’s in control, it’s all ran by the book,

I’ve got to get away so I can clear my mind,

Xscape is what I need, away from electric eyes

 

No matter where I am, I see my face around,

They pin lies on my name, and push them from town to town,

Don’t have a place to run, but there’s no need to hide,

I’ve got to, find a place,

So I won’t hide away

 

Xscape, got to get away from a system loose in the world today

Xscape, the pressure that I face from relationships that go away

Xscape, the man with the pen that writes the lies that hassle this man

Xscape, I do what I wanna cause I gotta face nobody but me

 

(Girl) – Sometimes I feel like I’ve gotta get away

 

I tried to share my life with someone I could love

But games and money is all she ever thought of

How could that be my fault when she gambled and lost

I’m tired of silly games, it’s time to make a change

 

Why is it I can’t do whatever I want to? (oh)

When in my personal life and I don’t live for you (you)

So don’t you try to tell me what is right for me (try it)

You be concerned about you, I can do what I want to

 

Xscape, got to get away from a system loose in the world today

Xscape, the pressure that I face from relationships that go away

Xscape, the man with the pen that writes the lies that hassle this man

Xscape, I do what I wanna cause I gotta face nobody but me

 

Bridge

When I go, (oh, go) this problem world won’t bother me no more

(This problem world won’t bother me no more)

(problem world, won’t bother me, yeah, oh, yeah, hoo)

Xscape

Xscape

Xscape

Xscape

 

Xscape, got to get away from a system loose in the world today

Xscape, the pressure that I face from relationships that go away

Xscape, the man with the pen that writes the lies that hassle this man

Xscape, I do what I wanna cause I gotta face nobody but me

 

(Hoo, hoo)

Xscape

Xscape …

You want me? Come and get me.

Xscape … repeat till fade
