LYRICS:

Get out of your own way
Ah!
Get out of your own way
Ah!

Love hurts, now you’re the girl whose left with no words
Your hearts a balloon but then it bursts
It doesn’t take a canon just a pin
your skin’s no covering…
Resistance, love has got to fight for its existence
The enemy has armies of assistants
The amorous, the glamourous
a kiss, a fist
Listen to this oh

Get out of your own way
Ah!
Get out of your own way
Ah!

I can sing it to you all night all night
If I could I’d make it alright alright
Nothing‘s stopping you except what’s inside
I can help you but it’s your fight, your fight

Fight back, don’t take it lying down you’ve got to bite back
The face of liberty is starting to crack
She had a plan until she got a smack in the mouth and it all went south like
Freedom, the slaves are looking for someone to lead them
The master’s looking for someone to need him
The promised land is there for those who need it most and Lincoln’s ghost said

Get out of your own way
Ahhhh
Get out of your own way
Ahhhh

I can sing it to you all night all night
If I could I’d make it all right all right
Nothing‘s stopping you except what’s inside
I can help you but it’s your fight your fight

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way

Blessed are the arrogant for theirs is the kingdom of their own company
Blessed are the superstars for in the magnificence of their light we understand better our own insignificance
Blessed are the filthy rich for you can only truly own what you give away… like your pain
