about

Sometimes you want to just getaway. But if you can't physically do that, your getaway has to be in the mind, recognizing where you want to be.

lyrics

Getaway

Too much on the mind
Too much on the grind
Or not enough’s enough to make the brain bust
Thoughts moving so fast
It could have the body stuck
Like amusement park rides
No where to hide, but inside
Steady thinking, could lead to steady drinking
Do I need AA?
Or just a getaway
Be going in
Zoning with the pen and pad
Getting mad frustrated
Stay sane, stay plain?
Here we go again
Do it end?
Or do it again?
The pain of repetition
Bitching only serves as tool to fuel like piston
The rude attitude
Latitude slipping, like hands losing their grip when
Trying to hang on, stay strong
It’s like moving mountains
Be feeling like bouncing, but got obligations
Big like African, Asian continents
Adding extra weight to the plate like condiments
But that’s what keeps the common sense

Sometimes you want to just, Getaway
From the everyday grind, the things on your mind
Sometimes you need to just, Getaway
From the everyday hustle, the everyday struggle
You ever find you dying to, Getaway
To give your mind a rest from all the stress
You get a sign it’s time to, Getaway
Before your soul breaks from all this heartache

Without the compliments
Confidence shifts
I done over-eaten
Literal and metaphorically speaking
Avoiding the vegan diet
Holding things in
Seeking riot, iron deficient, tired, indifferent
Ready to lose it, move it
Before dudes is getting slapped up
But act up and you seeing handcuffs
Too rough, too much for little one’s eyes
Cries, crisis, families broken
So disguised this
Tone Loc and getting yolked
Folks be tokin’ on that hydro
That growing in yard, but grow it in your yard
And watch you catch a charge bro
Real steep, why, just to squash beef?
Throwing back O.E. or Hennessy
To create peace mentally
Good grief
Leads to good piece
Plenty of time
But still losing, without a resolution
Steady confusion
Even after ya’ll both grind out, until you bruising

Sometimes you want to just, Getaway
From the everyday grind, the things on your mind
Sometimes you need to just, Getaway
From the everyday hustle, the everyday struggle
You ever find you dying to, Getaway
To give your mind a rest from all the stress
You get a sign it’s time to, Getaway
Before your soul breaks from all this heartache

Get away in mind, get away in time
Real soon, til’ then
Consume with tunes
Vent through verses, birthing new joints
Move on, shift the pain, shift the brain
Meditate, claim your place
Save face, hold faith
Lift the aim higher
Ignite the flame fire, inspire
Hot-wire to spark thoughts
Fight through the nights dark
Filled with fright, start
Bench-press the stress out
Squat your rear
Get out, get clout
Rid doubt, work out, curse shout
Paint new pictures
Maintain scripture sister
Til things pop like blister
Don’t stop for Mr.’s Miss-demeaning
Or Mr. Mean and showing no love
Trust above
Trust your gut feeling
Healing self
Find your wealth within
While your stationed
Still vacationing
