"Get Out" encourages victims of setbacks and shattered dreams to keep reaching without letting lofty goals define them. A self-absorbed man learns the hard way that healthy relationships require commitment on "Give Myself to You" ("I guess I was saving my life for later ... I should have been giving myself to you"). Lead singer Pat Monahan pursues truth and faith ("For Me, It's You"), values fidelity ("Change Your Mind") and demonstrates self-respect ("I'm Not Waiting"). A single dad pledges to make his mate's memory a daily part of the children's lives on "Always Remember," noting that her beauty will be reflected in them.
The singer asks a girl her astrological sign ("Explanation"). On "Shelter Me" a needy guy begs his ex for some temporary comfort, which may also be a request for physical intimacy ("How about some shelter if I promise not to stay").
If heartache were potatoes, this reflective, melancholy disc would be Idaho. Only a few Train tracks veer from relational regret or misfortune, but at least they never lead to desperate, self-destructive behavior. Any problems are minor, and the good outweighs them.
