Getting Out Alive - By Carroll Bryant



We’ve all become our very own slaves
Always getting jealous of ourselves
Get online just to misbehave
The hate dominates our living hell

Don’t you think that love would be worth our time?
This is something you should carry in the back of your mind

We aint getting out of this alive
Nobody getting off this ride
Beginning or the middle and all the way until the end
You’re stuck in your seat until then

Jump back and slap somebody’s face
Always have to put somebody down
Invading a stranger and their space
I bet your parents have to be so proud

Don’t you think that friendship could ease your mind?
Why do you have to bully all the time?

We aint getting out of this alive
Nobody getting off this ride
Beginning or the middle and all the way until the end
You’re stuck in your seat until then

Because we ain’t getting out of this alive
Nobody getting off this ride
You can think that you can run so go ahead and try
We ain’t getting out of this alive

Reach out your hand with all your heart
To be a friend really isn’t so hard
Just look your fellow man eye to eye
Smile while you can before you die
You know you’re gonna die one day
And to be a better person will be too late

It will be too late

We’re all becoming so much like mud
Always getting trapped by our thoughts
Kindness is the first step towards love
A trap that I would gladly be caught

Don’t you think that love would be worth our time?
This is something you should carry in the back of your mind

In the back of your mind
All of the time
In the back of your mind

We aint getting out of this alive
Nobody getting off this ride
Beginning or the middle and all the way until the end
You’re stuck in your seat until then

Because we ain’t getting out of this alive
Nobody getting off this ride
You can think that you can run so go ahead and try
We ain’t getting out of this alive

No, we aint getting out of this alive
No, aint nobody getting off this ride
Not until the day comes, and when it finally arrives
We aint getting out of this alive
