Escape (I Need A Break) Lyrics

Escape, gotta get away
I need a break, gotta get away
I left my house this morning on my way to work
Some lady on the train spilled coffee on my shirt
And people started laughing like the whole thing was funny
I woulda went home except I need the money
Cause times is hard, my boss is crazy, the guy that works with me he's so damn lazy
Sits around all day drinks coffee and tea, he expects all the work to be done by me
And sometimes I wonder what they hired me for, to operate computers or run to the store
And when I ask for a raise, they tell me be patient, I've been working three years without a damn vacation
Things could be better but they're gettin' worse, until I got this job I never used to curse
well, Ive had it up to here with people treating me wrong, so why not tell the DJ to play my song

Escape, gotta get away
I need a break, gotta get away

I buy a lottery ticket every chance I get
And if I hit I got someplace my boss can kiss
My friends are backstabbing so I hang out alone
Think it's crazy on my job it's no better at home
My girl's half-mad, she drives me wild
All she ever cares about is rippin' the styles
She wants diamonds, furs, and now she wants kids
But what she needs is somewhere else to live
My psychiatrist tells me to give her more time, but one more second might blow my mind
The pressure's building up on me more and more, it's gotten so I'm doing things I've never done before
I need a break, y'all, I can't take this place, I feel locked up and I wanna escape, and I wanna escape, and I wanna escape, escape, escape, escape, escape, escape! escape, escape

So you wanna leave your job, but you need the funds
Take a sick day off and find another one
And if your girl or your man ain't treatin' you right
Just the same but your headaches night after night
Don't go crazy trying to please somebody else, you don't owe them a thing but you owe it yourself
So do what you gotta in order to escape
Take it from me it's never too late
Cause I'm breaking these chains I may never come back
Going to go out and give myself a rap attack
And if I like it a lot I'm going to make it a double
And if you stand in my way you're looking for trouble
There's only one way for me to have peace
And that's for me to go out and rock the beat, ha
So turn it up, the highs, boost up the bass, come on everybody let's rock the place

Gotta get away
Escape, gotta get away
I need a break
Gotta get away
Escape, gotta get away
I need a break, gotta get away
