"Getting Away With It" as written by and Bernard (gb 2)/marr Sumner....
I've been walking in the rain just to get wet on purpose
I've been forcing myself not to forget just to feel worse
I've been getting away with it all my life
(Getting away)

However I look it's clear to see
That I love you more than you love me
However I look it's clear to see
I love you more than you love me

I hate that mirror, it makes me feel so worthless
I'm an original sinner but when I'm with you I couldn't care less
I've been getting away with it all my life
Getting away with it all my life
(Getting away)

However I look it's clear to see
That I love you more than you love me
However I look it's clear to see
I love you more than you love me
I love you more than you love me
More than you love me

I thought I gave up falling in love a long long time ago
I guess I like it but I can't tell you, you shouldn't really know
And it's been true all my life
Yes, it's been true all my life

I've been talking to myself just to suggest that I'm selfish (getting ahead)
I've been trying to impress that more is less and I'm repressed (I should do what he said)

However I look it's clear to see
I love you more than you love me
However I look it's clear to see
I love you more than you love me
I love you more than you love me
I love you more than you love me

(Getting away with it)
(Getting away with it)

    My InterpretationI've always thought that this song was about wanting to be like all the famous lyricists/singers that come across as 'tortured artists.'
    For example, "I've been walking in the rain just to get wet on purpose" - they feel like they have to be miserable in order to create.

    Song MeaningThis song is about getting away with a lifelong addiction to alcohol and finally realizing that it's really a one way relationship.
