"Just To Get Away" as written by and Poison Idea Jerry Lang....
Quit my job, told my boss to stand aside
Grabbed a gun, a fifth of booze, jumped in my ride
I got my girl, she's sixteen and she's really special
I can't slow down, I've got a date with the devil
Two tons of steel, one hundred miles an hour
No looking back, grooving on the power
Responsibility made me quit
I'm sick of this motherfucking goddamn shit
There's a road, beyond it lies, I don't know
I just gotta run, I just gotta go

Two tons of steel, one hundred miles an hour

I, I never sang a love song
And I never owned a car
But I've never met a machine who would drive me this far

I'm not gonna listen to a word you say
I'm leaving in the morning, just to get away
I can't stand myself for just another day
I'm leaving in the morning, just to get away

    General CommentThis is what Jerry A. said in a interview about this song: "Just to Get Away" - this band Big Stick from New York, who're personal friends of mine. They kept saying, "why don't you write a song about cars and booze and girls, the American dream." They kept bugging me, and Big Stick has a song on their record that mentions Poison Idea. And the chorus of their song is "leaving in the morning, just to get away, just to get away." So I ripped that off and wrote a song about that.

    This song really stands out from the rest of their lyrics...
