Kim about ‘Get out’

Fulfills my criterium for any album, that at least one song must have a certain ‘bite’. I’ve always liked songs where I got the chance to show another side of me. To sit in the scene can sometimes be just wonderful! I love this song. (1)

I was writing with [Pete Kirtley], he played me the track and I remember phoning up Rick and saying ‘I think we’ve got a smash hit, a great one to play live and it will be a great surprise, I think, for a lof of KW fans. People who have liked some of my stuff, they will love this one. (2)

I got a feeling and I don’t like it
What you do, what you do, what you do to me
I’ve been brainwashed, I gotta fight it
Now i see, what you do, what you do to me

I’m taking control tonight
I know what I want tonight

Get out of my face and out of my skin
Don’t wanna go back, I’m not gonna let you in
Get out of my head … out of my head
Get out of my bed and run for your life
I’m shutting you down
You’re not gonna twist my mind
Get out of my head, get out of my head

I’m disconnecting, erasing everything
What you did, what you did, what you did to me
This time I don’t care, so shut your mouth yeah
Nothing left you could do, you could do to me

I’m taking control tonight …

Hey – Get out of my face …

This is my life
And I’m taking it back for the last time
Now it’s too late and I’m turning my back
Got my head straight

Get out of my face …

This is my life …
