"Get Out" as written by and Robin Mc Auley */michael Schenker....
What if there's no more fun to have?
And all I got is what I've had?
What if I have forgotten how?
Cut my losses and get out now
Get out, right now!

There's something stronger than me
There's something I don't want to see
A new thing growing in me

It is the hardest thing to
To watch it grow on top of you
And see you're just like everyone
No fun!

There's something stronger than me
There's something I don't want to see
A new thing growing in me
There's something I don't want to see

I don't speak that language anymore!
My blood is not that color anymore!
My blood don't shine the same way anymore!
I cannot deny it anymore!
No

There's something stronger than me
There's something I don't want to see
Got a new thing growing in me
There's something I don't want to see
There's something stronger than me
There's something I don't want to see
A new thing growing in me

    General CommentReading too much into the author of the words doesn't help much. All that stuff about Patton living in Italy etc. would only mean anything to big fans of FNM. Its not an implicit meaning in the song.

    I think the lyrics are fairly transparent, except this "new thing growing in me". What is it? He says its "something stronger than me". It has overtones of religious faith that i find interesting. I doubt Patton has "found God" or anything like that (I certainly haven't) but it does sound like the acknowledgement of a force beyond your control compelling you to do something

    General CommentI'm with GotMeNow... The guy's maturing, he doesn't have the same problems he had (nor the same reactions, "I don't speak that language anymore") but possibly some new challenges, and he's a bit scared of it all since it's unknown to him... Though he seems to know it's the right thing, even if it's 'no fun'.

    General CommentSounds like he's afraid becuase he's becoming something he doesn't want to be..like maybe with a drug addiction or someting..and he wants to "get out"..i dunno.

    General CommentI think it might be something to do with how Faith No More's music had changed from the last album. Mike even said that on King for a Day they were being more true to themselves.

    General Commentwell this one is pretty self explanatory isn't it?
    There is the feeling over having no control, having to run, overwhelmed by how things are turning out.
    its not about a guy, to whom things happens... thats no use really to have lyrics like this. I have the usual bummer to read stuff here, that are just reducing lyrics to some sort of tvsoap storyboards...lol
    come on, what matters is always and only the feeling you get! something speaking of a common human behavior.
    this here observasion tells about what anyone experiences in life when losing touch, facing a low, a terrible new thing, unpredicatble making one losing its mind.
    being unable to point it out, to put your finger on it.
    your life is just turning all upside down.. but somehow you must keep a grip.. or run away as you can, just for a while.. til you can't hide.

    General CommentMaturity or recovery is the "something stronger". This song is written by the self-destructive younger self, which puts "fun" above health. It's losing the battle, and it's arguing its case by accusing the growing healthy self of arrogance ("my blood is not that colour anymore"). "Get out" means, "don't turn into a tool, kill yourself instead". The lyrics are pretty literal.
