WAYOUT

lyrics

What will they ever do about me?
I may cause the world to go up in flames
I'm dangerous! [Did you know I'm dangerous?]
At least that's what they're sayin'
A man with a 'voice' talkin' about anything...
[Now you can sit down and shut up;
you can go to the back now!]

I've been asleep with the world at my feet
For way too long
Letting others speak for me;
...handing over the microphone
And let them sing my song...

Why do I feel I'm sneakin' around
Goin' outta my way... goin' WAYOUT
to be invisible?
WAYOUT... goin' outta the way...
All my life I'm hidin' out
Goin' outta my way... goin' WAYOUT
to be insignificant!
Crazy WAYOUT

Non-threatening and quietly
Surpress myself as if I've done somethin' hellacious!
Oh, I like to eat... and the color green
And somehow that makes me
Scandalously the same as ALL...!
I should be walkin' tall, but...
Sometimes I've heard people say
I'm never going to amount to anything
What if I believe... what if I believe...
What if I believe them... and I
Don't believe in my-- don't believe in my--
Don't believe in myself?

Why do I feel I'm sneakin' around
Goin' outta my way... goin' WAYOUT
to be invisible?
You know I'm goin' WAYOUT
...outta the way
All my life I'm hidin' out
Goin' outta my way... goin' WAYOUT
to be insignificant! (x2)

You know, I'm never gonna be that way again!

I can be anything I want to be in this country
And I don't know why... (I) let my life
Pass me by... sittin' on the sideline
Oh, I can be anything I want to be in this country
And I don't know why... I let my life
Just pass me by... sittin' on the sideline

Why do I feel I'm sneakin' around
Goin' outta my way... goin' WAYOUT
to be invisible?
I'm goin' WAYOUT
...outta my way [...outta the way]
All my life I'm hidin' out [yeah]
Goin' outta my way... goin' WAYOUT
to be insignificant!

You know, it's never gonna be that way again!
You know, it's never gonna be that way again!
You will never never see me that way again...!
