Appearances

Overview

"Get Away" was demoed by Cuomo at S.I.R. Rehearsal Studios around May 18, 2004. It is a lyrical reworking of the earlier demo, "Haunt You Every Day." The song is not listed in the Weezer Recording History, and its existence first became known when it was included among hundreds of demos leaked onto riverscuomo.com on November 7, 2020. A few days later, on November 11, the song was listed and quickly sold to a user on the site's demo storefront, where it was thereafter shared among fans. The song appeared on the digital demo compilation Alone IX: The Make Believe Years, released on November 22, 2020.

Lyrics

You say you know what's best for me
I don't care
You're sick if you think I'll agree
So beware

Every word that you speak is a lie
If it's true, then I think I would die

Get away
Get away, get away, get away
'Cause I don't wanna hear
Get away
'Cause I'm already down on the floor
And I hate you

Your facts might prove that you are right
I don't care
I'll never give without a fight
So beware

I am stronger than you might suspect
And the thing that I love, I protect

Get away
Get away, get away, get away
'Cause I don't wanna hear
Get away
'Cause I'm already down on the floor
And I hate you

Get away
Get away, get away, get away
'Cause I don't wanna hear
Get away
And I'm already down on the floor
And I hate you

Get away
Get away, get away, get away
'Cause I don't wanna hear anymore
Get away, get away, get away
'Cause I hate you
