Get Out Of The Way

Get Out Of The Way

Daryl Hall

Look at the water
There’s a storm that is raging
Like some biblical tide
That will sweep us away
All the good times gone so wrong
Tender years are flying

Run from the fire
That some idiot started
Cause he believed that the burning
Would be good for the temple
All the good men gone so wrong
Can’t you hear them lying?
What do you do
When history stops in its tracks

There’s a meaning
But I don’t know what it is
There’s a leaning
But I don’t know which way it’s falling
All I can do is try
To get out of the way

Grasp at emotions
That I stretch to the limits
Cause I shout out denial
In the face of disaster
All the good times gone so wrong
Tender years are dying
What do you do
When history stops in its tracks

There’s a meaning
But I don’t know what it is
There’s a leaning
But I don’t know which way it’s falling
All I can do is try
To get out of the way

So uneasy
But I got no way of knowing
Hurricane coming
But I don’t know which way it’s blowing
So get out of the way

All I can do is try
Wait for the tide to rise
But change of the seasons
Don’t mean reason’s winning out
What do you do
When history stops in its tracks

There’s a meaning
But I don’t know what it is
There’s a leaning
But I don’t know which way it’s falling
All I can do is try
Try to get out of the way
All I can do is try
To get out of the way
