Sleep depraved, dawn patrol
My life blood’s running circles ‘round my soul
All the people in normal land
Rest while I get a midnight tan

But I…
I just hope I can sleep tonight

How can I shake this stain?
My family thinks that I’m insane like I
Got a vice on my head
My brain goes on like The Walking Dead

But I…
From within and without
It just keeps on screaming

You gotta get out of the City of Destruction
Don’t wait another day
You gotta get out of the City of Destruction
There is no other way

Why are you grieving so?
Everyone must die someday, you know
I can see your trembling hand
You better flee this sun-scorched land

‘Cause I…
I have been to the gate
You’d better not wait

You gotta get out of the City of Destruction
Don’t wait another day
You gotta get out of the City of Destruction
There is no other way
You gotta get out of the City of Destruction
Where anger breeds disdain
You gotta get out of the City of Destruction
Where pleasure comes with pain

You gotta get out of the City of Destruction
Where anger breeds disdain
You gotta get out of the City of Destruction
Where pleasure comes with pain
This is your chance to escape from the corruption
Don’t wait another day
You gotta get out of the City of Destruction
There is no other way

I’ve got rocks in my head
Think I’d rather be dead
I don’t know what it’s really about
Got this rock on my back
Satan’s talking such smack
All I know is I’ve got to get out
