U2 – Get Out Of Your Own Way

Antonio's thoughts on getting out of the way

U2 has a soft spot in my heart. They have always been there for me in time of need. 

Recently, I had been pretty down trying to figure out how I was going to pay for the next Oh Antonio and his Imaginary Freinds record - Open Source Melodies. We have 8 songs ready to go. I have only been able to afford to mix 2 tracks.

A few weeks ago, I met with a friend for a drink. They had recently got into a car wreck and were with out a car. I asked, "What are going to do?" Are you getting a payout from insurance?" they looked me square in the eye and said in an aire of peace, "The money is there. I don't know where. I just find it and keep my eyes open." That was it. 

My heart stopped. I just need to get out of the way and quit worrying. 

Within 2 weeks, I have found money to mix every song except one. 

Almost there. I just need to get out of the way!

Get out of your own way, hey, hey
Get out of your own way, hey, hey

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 cannon, just a pin
Your skin's not covering
And resistance
Love has got to fight for its existence
The enemy has armies for assistance
The amorous, the glamorous, the kiss
A fist, listen to this, oh

 

Get out of your own way, oh, ah
Get out of your own way, oh, ah

I could 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 lyin' down, you got to bite back
The face of liberty's starting to crack
She had a plan up until she got smacked in the mouth
And it all went south
Like freedom
The slaves are lookin' for someone to lead them
The master's lookin' 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, oh, ah
Get out of your own way, oh, ah

I could 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

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
