Break Out

  • I wake up to the sound again,
    Of red lights flashing on my bed.
    Sirens blazing in my head,
    And I'm such a wreck
    Cause I'm running to the fire now,
    But there's so fire to put out
    My mind is turning upside down,
    Gotta turn around.

    All these words are not enough

    I'm gonna break out
    I'm gonna break free
    Not gonna think twice
    You'll never stop me
    Don't even try
    I'll knock you down
    I'm saying hello to a new dream
    I'm taking it back what's left of me
    Don't even try,
    You can't stop me now!

    Is it always gonna be this way?
    Now that my scars have gone away.
    Don't open them back up today,
    I can't take the pain
    And the white noise calms me down at night.
    If I don't look into your eyes
    It's no fun when it's your life,
    Hanging on the line

    All these words are not enough

    I'm gonna break out
    I'm gonna break free
    Not gonna think twice
    You'll never stop me
    Don't even try
    I'll knock you down
    I'm saying hello to a new dream
    I'm taking it back what's left of me
    Don't even try
    You can't stop me now!

    I gotta feeling where I used to be numb.
    I can feel it now rushing through my blood.
    I'm stronger than I ever thought I was,
    And now I found another way out of here.

    All these words are not enough
    Now these words mean so much

    I'm gonna break out
    I'm gonna break free
    Not gonna think twice
    You'll never stop me
    Don't even try
    I'll knock you down

    I'm saying hello to a new dream
    I'm taking it back what's left of me
    Don't even try,
    You can't stop me now!
    I'm gonna break out! Writer/s: Julia Michaels, Mitch Allen, Scott Stapp
