Lauryn Hill - I Get Out lyrics

I get out, I'll 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

Your stinking resolution is no
Type of solution preventing me from freedom
Maintaining 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 victimized 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 lose 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'll take the sacrifice, yo
If everything must go
Then go: that's how I choose to live

Heh… hehehehehe… ok, we gettin' there
At least I had a chunk
Aight, okay, it's how I choose to live
Hehehe, awww

No more compromises
I see past your disguises
Blinding me through mind control
Stealing my eternal soul
Appealing through material
To keep me as your slave

But I get out, oh
I get out of all your boxes
I'll get out, oh
You can't hold me in these chains
I get out, oh, I want out of social bondage
Knowin' my condition, oh
Is the reason I must change

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

And just get out, oh
Just get out of all these bondage
Just get out, oh
You can't hold me in these chains
Just get out
All these traditions killin' freedom
Knowin' my condition is the
Reason I must change

I've just accepted what you said
Keeping me among the dead
The only way to know
Is to walk to learn and grow
But faith is not your speed
Oh, you’d have 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, and escape this 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 serving?
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

Oh, just get out of this social purgatory
Just get out, all these traditions are a lie
Just get out, superstition killin' 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
