Break Free

You see life's not as easy as the say it is

Whoever they may be

They teach you math, they teach you science

And outdated, old men philosophy

You are part of the system

And soon before you know it

You'll be teaching youngsters like yourself

About some old outdated poet

Chorus: When things really got you down

Did you ever think about running

Finding a place to hide

Or did you one day break free from the inside?

Though if you act soon

Your mind can be spared

Your information station

Willl be repaired

We'll hit you on the head

Until you're better off dead

The sooner the better

The blood runs wetter

When you wake up you feel fine

Your brain is overflowing

If you are slightly confused

On your face it isn't showing

Chorus: When things really got you down

Did you ever think about running

Finding a place to hide

Or did you one day break free from the inside?

Chorus: When things really got you down

Did you ever think about running

Finding a place to hide

Or did you one day break free from the inside?

So now it's a rebellion

You are a teenager

Lifes like a hand of poker

What do you wager?

Where will life take you

On top of the world

Your dreams await

On the smoke's eyes, they've curled

Throw no caution to the wind

Because the wind can't catch

If you're baking brownies

They're a special batch!

Chorus: When things really got you down

Did you ever think about running

Finding a place to hide

Or did you one day break free from the inside?

But you are finding out

That everyone has a price to pay

And with your freedom

Comes responsibility

With that you must accept

The riches and rewards

But the hardships you say?

They are worth it all the way

You may have to work all day

It may be kind of boring

But beside your girl you sleep

And hope that you aren't snoring!

So lessons are learned

For the young and the old

And information station

Grasps for a tighter hold

Chorus: When things really got you down

Did you ever think about running

Finding a place to hide

Or did you one day break free from the inside?

Chorus: When things really got you down

Did you ever think about running

Finding a place to hide

Or did you one day break free from the inside?
