The Getaway

Verse 1

That’s right you’re right
We will do our thing tonight alright
Oh take me through the future
It’s time you’re fine
Just another color coded crime
Incision and a suture
You told my friend
We would get it on no matter when
A supercavitation
Let’s go you show
Me something no one will ever know
A love hallucination

Pre-
Chorus

Another lonely superstar
To get away inside your car
Take it much too far
Surrender to the brave inside
A lover that another tried
Take it, too my ride

 
Chorus

Flea
You don’t have to keep it if it’s mine
Anna
Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car
Flea
Another place maybe another time
Anna
Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried

Verse 2

Complete repeat
Sitting in your car and on your street
Lost in California
Let’s steal this wheel
Take a spin to find out how we feel
Ah just around the corner
Slow down for sound
Turn it up and no we can’t be found
The body that we transcend
Asleep, you weep
Find out that the trick is never cheap
A melancholy girlfriend

Pre-
Chorus

Another lonely superstar
To get away inside your car
Take it much too far
Surrender to the brave inside
A lover that another tried
Take it, too my ride

 
Chorus

Flea
You don’t have to keep it if it’s mine
Anna
Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car
Flea
Another place maybe another time
Anna
Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried

Bridge

That’s right you’re right
We will do our thing tonight, alright
Drive the constellation
It’s time you’re fine
Just another color coded crime
The song is fascination

Pre-
Chorus

Another lonely superstar
To get away inside your car
Take it much too far
Surrender to the brave inside
The lover that another tried
Take it, too my ride

 
Chorus
(alt.)

Flea
A May December might not be so smart
Anna
Another lonely superstar to getaway inside your car
Flea
Arrivals that we wish would not depart
Anna
Surrender to the brave inside a lover that another tried

 
Outro

Flea and Backings
Don’t be late cause you’re my savior
Make it great whatever stays
Anna
[Ah-hah-hah-ha]
Flea and Backings
Golden gate my rearranger
Anna
[Ah-hah-hah-ha]
Flea and Backings
Hold my name inside your rays
