"Out Of My Way" as written by and Shaun Morgan Welgemoed James Johnston....
Out of my way
Out of my, way

I can't pass up this opportunity to make myself absurd,
I can't pass up this opportunity to make myself be heard.
Would you, like to, be the one who sees me lose this all,
Would you, like to, be the one who sees me fall.

[Chorus]
Nobody's gonna stand in my way
Give it up son, I'm doin' this my way
Nobody's gonna stand in my way
Give it up son, I'm doin' this my way

You like to think the worst is over now, but you can't breathe at all
You like to think you're owed a favor now, man you've seen it all

Did you, want to, be the one who pushed me off the wall,
Did you, want to, be the one who let me fall.

[Chorus]

You can't hold me down
You can't hold me down
You can't hold me down
You can't hold me down

I can't pass up this opportunity to make myself absurd,
I can't pass up this opportunity to make myself be heard.
Would you, like to, be the one who sees me lose this all,
Would you, like to, be the one who sees me fall.

[Chorus]

Nobody's gonna stand in my way
Give it up, I'm doin' this my way
Nobody's gonna stand in my way
Give it up, I'm doin' this my way
Out of my way

    General CommentThis song is basically about finally taking the chance to express yourself. He is going to let himself be heard and no one is going to stop him.

    I've also seen some people think it's about his parents always sheltering him and holding him down and now he is finally breaking away and doing what he wants.

    It's an aggressive song, and I love it.

    General CommentWell this song was for the Freddy Vs. Jason soundtrack so it had to be agressive wich it is. i think it is just him saying he is a bad ass and don't mess (does with the characters from the movie i think)

    General Commentyou got some of the lyrics wrong

    "I can’t pass up this opportunity to make myself absurd,
    I can’t pass up this opportunity to make myself be heard"

    it should be...

    "I Cant Pass Up This Opportunity To Make Myself Observed
    I Cant Pass Up This Opportunity To Let Myself Be Heard"

    General CommentUnderdog theme song for a form WWE wrestler named Zach Gowen. He was a thin little guy, but he was special because he only had one leg.

    Google him, it's quite a sight to see him wrestle

    General CommentI believe that this song and "Broken" have a connection...but it might be just me

    Broken: "The worst is over now and we can breathe again"

    Out of my Way: "You like to think the worst is over now, but you cant breathe at all"

    General CommentTake back what I had said earlier. While this song was used for Zach Gowen's entrance theme this song was orignally written by Seether for WWE wrestler Kurt Angle and was orignally going to be released on the WWE Forceable Entry Soundtrack.

    It was based off his entrance theme, but the song was shot down from release because it strayed to much from his orignal theme.
