  • Help me out, I need escape
    It's the truth, I got to go
    With all the boys in the back I lay
    And all my girls in the super store
    Because we need electricity,
    City lights gotta glow for me
    I want more than a car, I'm a queen
    So get your shit, now we got to roll!

    Let's go out of this town, too bored hanging around
    Sky high, head in the clouds,
    Never gonna come down, ooh
    Drums, bass turn 'em up loud,
    Free fall, spinning around
    Sky high, head in the clouds,
    Never gonna come down

    Take the car and cut the brakes,
    Driving out into the dark
    Even though I love my mom and dad,
    I wanna swim out there with the sharks
    I wanna learn to speak Japanese,
    Razor-sharp on the silver screen
    We were made for a limousine
    So get your shit, and come with me!

    Let's go out of this town, too bored hanging around
    Sky high, head in the clouds,
    Never gonna come down, ooh
    Drums, bass turn 'em up loud,
    Free fall, spinning around
    Sky high, head in the clouds,
    Never gonna come down

    Blowing bubbles out in the grass
    All tangled in the stars, getting faded in the back seat
    You can be hanging with us,
    We used to walk around the back street,
    Swimming through some real heat
    Fuck the dream, I want it for real!
    Always make it look so easy, move into the city
    Take a little sip of surreal,
    We're much more than nothing,
    Yeah we're all just tryin'a be who we feel!

    (Ooh) Throwing cake up in the air, we don't care, no
    (Ooh) Surfing on a silver wave, wanna let go
    (Ooh) We're so bored of being here, we don't care, no
    I wanna run, be wild and free, and with my friends standing next to me

    Let's go out of this town, too bored hanging around
    Sky high, head in the clouds,
    Never gonna come down,
    Drums, bass turn 'em up loud,
    Free fall, spinning around
    Sky high, head in the clouds,
    Never gonna come down

    (Hey) Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah
    Hanging on hanging on
    (Hey) Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah
    Hanging on hanging around
    (Hey) Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah
    Hanging on hanging on
    (Hey) Ooh ah ah ooh ah ah
