Lyrics

Goin' down to Monte Carlo about 25k from Nice
Goin' down to Monte Carlo about 25k from Nice
Got to get myself together, gotta get my head some peace

Sartre said that hell is other people, I believe that most of them are
Sartre said hell is other people, I believe that most of them are
Well their pettiness amazes me, even after I've gone this far

Goin' down to Monte Carlo, 25k from Nice
Goin' down to Monte Carlo 'bout 25k from Nice
Gotta get my head together, gotta get my head some peace

Playing in the background some kind of phony pseudo jazz
Playing in the background in the restaurant, some kind of phony pseudo jazz
I don't care I'm trying to get away from people, that are trying to drive me mad

After everything I've worked for, not goin' to throw everything away
After everything I worked so hard for, I'm not goin' to give it all away
I just need to take a raincheck, I can't live to fight another day

Goin' down to Monte Carlo, 25k from Nice
Goin' down, goin' down to Monte Carlo, still about 25k from Nice
Got to get my head showered, got to find some release
