"Gotta Get Away" is the fourth track on The Offspring's 1994 third album, Smash. It was released as the third and final single off Smash in 1995, even though "Bad Habit" got airplay after the success of the previous singles "Come Out and Play" and "Self Esteem", which would have obviously made "Gotta Get Away" the album's fourth single.

Lyrics

Getting edgy all the time
Someone around me, just a step behind
It's kinda scary, the shape I'm in
Walls are shakin' and they're closing in
Too fast or a bit too slow
I'm paranoid of people and it's starting to show
One guy that I can't shake
Over my shoulder is a big mistake

Sitting on the bed or lying wide awake
There's demons in my head and it's more than I can take
Think I'm on a roll, but I think it's kinda weak
Saying all I know is I gotta get away from me

I tell you, something just ain't right
My head is all loose, but my shoes are tight
Avoidin' my friends 'cause they all bug
Life is like a riddle and I'm really stumped
If you reason, don't you know
Your own preoccupation is where you'll go
I'm being followed, look around
It's only my shadow creepin' on the ground

Sitting on the bed or lying wide awake
There's demons in my head and it's more than I can take
I think I'm on a roll, but I think it's kinda weak
Saying all I know is I gotta get away from me
Gotta get away from me
Gotta get away from me

Whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa

Sitting on the bed or lying wide awake
There's demons in my head and it's more than I can take
Think I'm on a roll, but I think it's kinda weak
Saying all I know is I gotta get away from me

Gotta get away from me
Gotta get away from me
Gotta get away from me
