No bright lights, no big city
Went to my head
So I won't stick around in this town
No, I'm getting out instead

'Cause I can't find a thing here to get it done
Raise my heart and ring my ears
So I won't stick around in this town
That's true, ohhh

'Cause I won't and I can't
And I don't understand
You become what you hate
Or you hate what you become?

Got me a ticket and it won't be long
'Cause I can't go on and I gotta get gone
Got me a ticket and it won't be long
'Cause I can't go on and I gotta get gone away

So I make my way through the quagmire
Rumors glorifying the use
Ask the detox in this city
So if I may be excused

'Cause I won't and I can't
And I don't understand
You become what you hate,
Or you hate what you become?

Got me a ticket and it won't be long
'Cause I can't go on and I gotta get gone
Got me a ticket and it won't be long
'Cause I can't go on and I gotta get gone

Got me a ticket and it won't be long
'Cause I can't go on and I gotta get gone
Got me a ticket and it won't be long
'Cause I can't go on and I gotta get gone away

Well, I won't around for the good times
Won't be around for the bad
And I won't stick around in this town
No, I'm getting out instead
Yeah, yeah, yeah

And I won't and I can't
And I'll leave 'cause I can
And I won't be back again

Well, I got me a ticket and it won't be long
'Cause I can't go on and I gotta get gone
Got me a ticket and it won't be long
'Cause I can't go on and I gotta get gone

Got me a ticket and it won't be long
'Cause I can't go on and I gotta get gone
Got me a ticket and it won't be long
'Cause I can't go on and I gotta get gone away

And I gotta get gone away
'Cause I gotta get gone away
Gotta get gone away
