"Out To Get Me" as written by W. Axl Rose, Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler....
Been hidin' out
And layin' low
It's nothing new ta me
Well you can always find a place to go
If you can keep your sanity
They break down the doors
And they rape my rights but
They won't touch me
They scream and yell
And fight all night
You can't tell me
I lose my head
I close my eyes
They won't touch me
'Cause I got somethin'
I been buildin' up inside
For so fuckin' long

They're out ta get me
They won't catch me
I'm fucking innocent
They won't break me

Sometimes it's easy to forget where you're goin'
Sometimes it's harder to leave
And every time you think you know just what you're doin'
That's when your troubles exceed
They push me in a corner
Jest to get me to fight but
They won't touch me
They preach and yell
And fight all night
You can't tell me
I lose my head
I close my eyes
They won't touch me
'Cause I got somethin'
I been buildin' up inside

They're out ta get me
They won't catch me
I'm innocent
They won't break me

Some people got a chip on their shoulder
And some would say it was me
But I didn't bey that fifth of whiskey
That you gave me
So I'd be quick to disagree

They're out ta get me
They won't catch me
I'm innocent
They won't break me

They're out ta get me
They won't catch me
I'm innocent
So you can
Suck me
Take that one to heart

    My OpinionThis is a great song leaning towards citizen vs. law enforcement.
    Anyone who has ever been bulldozed by the law can appreciate the lyrics
    and relate to this song.

    General CommentHey I love this song to! The meaning is about when Axl was just an innocent kid while he suffered physical and sexual abuse from his fathers and observed his parents constantly fighting.

    General CommentI love Guns N' Roses. The vocals, the guitar, the bass, and the drums are just fantastic in this song. My favorite.

    General CommentI always thought this song was about the police and I have thought so for years however now looking into it, could it be a song about chastidy, if it were i'm sure they wouldn't admit it.
