Midnight, on the water
I saw the ocean's daughter
Walking on a wave's chicane
Staring as she called my name

And I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head
Now my whole world is gone for dead
'Cause I can't get it out of my head

Breakdown on the shoreline
Can't move, it's an ebbtide
Morning, don't get here tonight
Searching for her silver light

And I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head
Now my whole world is gone for dead
'Cause I can't get it out of my head, no how?

Bank job in the city
Robin Hood and William Tell
And Ivanhoe and Lancelot
They don't envy me
Sitting 'til the sun goes down
In dreams the world keeps going 'round and 'round

And I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head
Now my whole world is gone for dead
'Cause I can't get it out of my head

And I can't get it out of my head
No, I can't get it out of my head
Now my whole world is gone for dead
'Cause I can't get it out of my head, no how, no now

    General CommentThis song is from the Eldorado album, with much reference to the Wizard of Oz (eg, picture on the cover was of the Ruby Slippers).

    This song in particular has musical quotes from Over the Rainbow (here the strings at 2:10)

    Hence, the meaning of this song to me is about paradise (Oz) and the grip it has on our mind (Can't Get It Out...) . Even tho the lyrics don't specifically reference W of Oz, I can't get it our of my head that this song is about Oz.
