Get out of your head, get past the obstructions You gotta do it yourself, without any instructions

Get out of your head

It’s like working in a coal mine
Might as well be doing hard time
Sultry and sticky like summer in the city
Everyone’s sweating, there’s no room for pity
Deep down you know in your soul it’s true
The life you’re living, it ain’t really you
You’re an extra in a somebody else’s story
Where somebody else always gets the glory
And if you don’t get lucky, that’s all it will be
You know in your heart, that’s life’s guarantee 

It’s not about you, but it’s about what you do
It’s not about you, it’s your attitude
Anything can be false, anything can be true
What really matters is what these things mean to you
Get out of your head, get past the obstructions
You gotta do it yourself, without any instructions
After all, you’re the one who created them, you know
That’s why they’re between you and where you want to go
Just in case you give up, you’ll have an excuse
So you can rationalize and say you weren’t ready to choose
