    Hi, you wouldn't have any context to go with that, by any chance?

    Oh. That's from Motley Crue's "Looks That Kill":

    "...Now she's a cool, cool black
    Moves like a cat
    If you don't get her game
    You might not make it back..."

    It means you'll get to some place and not be able to return.
    Given the title, I'd say it means you die. Maybe you go insane. Maybe it's not meant to be analysed - it just sounded good and 'back' rhymes with 'black'.
    But in general, "making it back" from somewhere means managing to return.
