There’s a new world coming through
And theres nothing we can do
Theres a new time, its coming by
All I want is mine
Gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get out by nine
Gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get out alive
Gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get out by nine
Gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get out alive

On the road and the highway I drive
Your mine oh
Theres room to fly
Gotta get out sometime, gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get out by nine
Gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get out alive
Gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get out by nine
Gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get out alive

Its not my own way of getting down
Not the only time to stop and look around
Its means everything
Don’t know where I am
Can't see nothing but I may have to ??

Gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get out by nine
Gotta get out, gotta get out, gotta get out alive

    General CommentI like to think of this as the acid trip song, haha. Definitely the weirdest JM song ever, but now I like it. I'm not exactly sure what the point of it is, though.

    General CommentWhen you hear old recordings of John back when he used to play at coffee houses he often says something like 'i only have time to play one more song for you because they're gonna kick us out at 9'
    so I think this song is alluding to having to finish his set by 9

    General CommentActually, this was a song written by John when he was in High School and the reference to by Nine was his parents rule. His Band had to be out of the "BASEMENT" by nine. That is where the song comes from.
