Lauryn Hill, "I Get Out"

This acoustic song from Hill's dramatic 2001 MTV Unplugged performance is about escaping a hurtful relationship that "victimizes" and "compromises" you, though by the last verse it's hard to tell if the abuser is a boyfriend, the record industry, or society in general—or all three.
