Japanese term or phrase: はみだす
Dea Proz members, I'm having troubles with the term はみだす. I've found it in a quite criptyc song and I'm not sure about the meaning. These are the first verses:

ガラスのショーウィンドゥ ひしめくタクシー
眠らないノイズの Neon Street
ジャケット片手に 飛び出した Midnight
火照るボディー持て余す Energy
はみだしても Get My Way
今は 負けたくない
Knock down 孤独のフェンス つまずいても

The singer says she will 'get his way' even though...? Could 'be pushed out' be a possible interpretation?

The word is in hiragana in the original lyrics.

Thanks!

isolated
Explanation:
I would interpret this as 「社会からはみ出す」in order to contrast it with the concept of "getting his way." Although he's not the same as "others" he'll still go his own way.

1: Although I'm a marginalized outsider, I'll get my way
2: Even if I'm isolated, I'll get my way
