I Get Out Lyrics Lauryn Hill

That’s how I choose to live… No more compromises, I see past your disguises…

“I Get Out”

[Singing Chorus]
I get out, I get out of all your boxes, I get out, you can’t hold me in these chains  I’ll get out
Father free me from this bondage, Knowin’ my condition, Is the reason I must change

[Verse 1]
Your stinkin’ resolution, Is no type of solution, Preventin’ me from freedom, Maintainin’ your pollution I won’t support your lie no more I won’t even try no more,If I have to die, oh Lord That’s how I choose to live I won’t be compromised no more, I can’t be victimised no more I just don’t sympathize no more Cause now I understand, You just wanna use me, You say “love” then abuse me, You never thought you’d loose me, But how quickly we forget, That nothin’ is for certain, You thought I’d stay here hurtin’
Your guilt trip’s just not workin’, Repressin’ me to death, Cause now I’m choosin’ life, yo, I take the sacrifice, yo, If everything must go, then go, That’s how I choose to live

[Pause]

[Singing rest of Verse 1]
That’s how I choose to live… Hehehehe, awhh, No more compromises, I see past your disguises, Blindin’ through mind control, Stealin’ my eternal soul, Appealin’ through material, To keep me as your slave

[Singing Chorus]
But I get out, Oh, I get out of all your boxes
I get out, Oh, you can’t hold me in these chains
I’ll get out, Oh, I want out of social bondage
Knowin’ my condition Oh, is the reason I must change

[Singing Verse 2]
See, what you see is what you get, Oh, and you ain’t seen nothin’ yet, Oh, I don’t care if you’re upset
I could care less if you’re upset, See it don’t change the truth, And your hurt feeling’s no excuse, To keep me in this box, Psychological locks, Repressin’ true expression, Cementin’ this repression, Promotin’ mass deception, So that no one can be healed, I don’t respect your system, I won’t protect your system, When you talk I don’t listen, Oh, let my Father’s will be done

[Singing Chorus]
And just get out, Oh, just get out of all these bondage
Just get out, Oh, you can’t hold me in chains
Just get out, All these traditions killin’ freedom
Knowin’ my condition, Is the reason I must change

[Singing Verse 3]
I’ve just accepted what you said, Keepin’ me among the dead. The only way to know, Is to walk then learn and grow, But faith is not your speed, Oh, you’ve had everyone believe That you’re the sole authority, Just follow the majority, Afraid to face reality, The system is a joke, Oh, you’d be smart to save your soul, Oh, when escape is mind control, You spent your life in sacrifice, To a system for the dead, Oh, are you sure… Where is the passion in this living, Are you sure it’s God you servin’, Obligated to a system, Getting less then you’re deserving, Who made up these schools, I say, Who made up these rules, I say, Animal conditioning, Oh, just to keep us as a slave

[Singing Chorus]
Oh, just get out, Of this social purgatory
Just get out, All these traditions are a lie
Just get out, Superstition killing freedom
Knowin’ my condition, Is the reason I must die
Just get out, Just get out, Just get out
Let’s get out, Let’s get out
Knowin’ my condition, Is the reason I must die
Just get out
