"If you look at music as emotion, then I think you'll connect us to the ballad tradition, to the wailing and keening of the old music."

"Get Out Of Your Own Way"

Get out of your own way
Get out of your own way
 
Love hurts
Now you’re the girl
Who’s left with no words
Your heart’s a balloon
But then it bursts
It doesn’t take a canon, just a pin
Your skin’s no covering

And resistance
Love has got to fight for its existence
The enemy has armies of assistants
The amorous, the glamorous
A kiss, a fist
Listen to this, oh

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

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 gotta bite back
The face of liberty’s 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
Get out of your own way

I can sing it to you all night
All night
If I could, I’d make it alright
Alright
Nothing 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 the magnificence in 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
