"Get Outta My Life" as written by and Allen / Toussaint....
I've been cool for far too long
Just a matter of time before I break
I took more shit than I wanted to take
You can't look me in the eyes
Somethings gone wrong and you know I know
I'm like a stick of dynamite ready to blow
I just can't accept your lies no more
It ain't my fault that you can't take it
Just ain't cool if you have to fake it

(pre chorus)
Don't threaten me just pack your trash
And don't let the door hit you in the ass
Get outta my life!

(chorus)
Get up get gone I gotta keep on keeping on
Too much pain and too much strife up yours
Get outta my life!
Get up get gone I gotta keep on keeping on
Too much pain and too much strife up yours
Get outta my life!

I ain't gonna be cool no more
You took advantage of my whole deal
This ain't about you it's the way I feel
Nothin's ever good enough
Your never satisfied heard it all before
When you give all you got you can't give no more
It's too late to change my mind
I can't turn back the hands of time
You should have noticed the danger sign

(pre chorus)
Don't threaten me just pack your trash
And don't let the door hit you in the ass
Get outta my mother fucking life!

(chorus)
Get up get gone I gotta keep on keeping on
Too much pain and too much strife up yours
Get outta my life!
Get up get gone I gotta keep on keeping on
Too much pain and too much strife up yours
Get outta my life!

(repeat chorus)

    General CommentKickass song...I love it in the second chorus when adds the 'motherf*cker' to that line.

    Also a blazing solo by Dime...damn, I miss him.

    General CommentQuick question, that isn't the normal singer in the chorus is it? I mean, it sounds a lot like Phil, but he doesn't get credited for it. In fact, no one does. It's obvious its a guest vocalist, but I have no idea who it is. Anyone know?

    As for what its about, its obvious its about someone who used to give the singer shit and he took it. Now he's tired of it and he pretty much tells that person to "f**k off."

    General CommentThe other singer is Hnak Williams III, who was the bass player for Superjoint Ritual, and son of Hank Williams Jr.
