Stay close if you want to keep up
But don't dare turn around
Go ahead for the bullseye, my friend
But know you're gonna get the horns

A yellow-belly's never havin' the guts
But, god, how he gets the glory
The West was won from a cheater with a gun
And I hope he never lives it down

Yeah!

Minced words from anonymous cowards
Fell down from Kingdom Come
The threatened source of this obstacle course
Had us cornered in a guessing game

Every attempt turned a kettle of fish
And loves making it waves
If I had to guess, he's still making a mess
Worse than any thunderstorm

(Whoa, whoa)

No one turned over leaves, no one's branching out
No one went on a limb when he belted out,
"Get gone!"
Someone looked for a clue; someone got the axe
Someone yelled in the wake of the great collapse,
"Get gone!"

Let's stall like a neanderthal
That can't make up his mind
And not sore if we've heard it before
Broken records want to make a case

The choppers came, and were spinning the yarn
Our ears still opened up
If failed attempts were a lottery ticket
You can bet I'd be raking it in

No one turned over leaves, no one's branching out
No one went on a limb when he belted out,
"Get gone!"
Someone looked for a clue; someone got the axe
Someone yelled in the wake of the great collapse,
"Get gone!"

"Get gone," I said

No one turned over leaves, no one's branching out
No one went on a limb when he belted out,
"Get gone!"
Someone looked for a clue; someone got the axe
Someone yelled in the wake of the great collapse,
"Get gone!"

Yeah!

    Lyric Correction"Stay close if you wanna keep up
    but don't get turned around.
    Go ahead where the bulls are my friends..."

    is what i hear at the beginning. The rest needs more listening.

    General CommentYou know lyrics.wikia.com/… has filled in some of the missing spots. I don't agree 100% with the lyrics on there, but there's some on there that's not on here.

    General CommentI hear this.

    Everytime someone stands up to the government or "sheriff" they get shot down while everyone else
    just sits and watches wanting to do something but is too afraid to. Everytime someone has
    the courage to stand against the tide and learn and grow and be better and tell the controlling
    one's to "get gone" then they off them. Everyone just still sits being dumb like a neanderthaugh
    that can't make up his mind. Everyone is a herd of cows almost that can't think for themselves.
