On the outside underneath the wall
All the money couldn't buy
You're mistaken, no one's standing there
For the record no one tried

Oh I try to
What if we give it away?

Overlooking with a hollow eye
What's pretending is it right?
Eye for order, a hand for what's in line
Couldn't follow, couldn't write

Oh I try to
What if we give it away?

And our life is fine here
Stitch it on your tie here

Here's the trailer Tom
A year has come and gone
We're not moving was it right
Take the order, sew it on your tie
We couldn't follow, couldn't try

Oh I try to
What if we give it away?
What if we give it away?

    General CommentThe line sounds like 'What if we give it all away'. I think the song is about moving on in life,leaving the worries and/or worldly pleasures behind.

    General CommentI think local 151 may be right, especially considering the original line was "Why don't they get on their way?" You can hear this version on the bootleg Live at Tyrones from 1981.
