„I’ve got to get away, so I can free my mind
Escape is what I need, away from electric eyes
No matter where I am, I see my face around
They pin lies on my name, then push them town to town
Don’t have a place to run, but there’s no need to hide
I’ve got to find a place, but I won’t hide away
The man with the pen
That writes the lies that hassle this man (Writin‘ all those lies)
I can’t take this garbage here no more“
