I can feel a north wind blowing
And I know something's going down tonight
The chains that bind are getting restless
The albatross is getting tight
There are those that feel I've waited too long
I should have gotten out by now
I hear the echoes of the shadows of the night
They say this ship is going down

But the church bells chime
And it's right now
It's right on time

Cause I'm breaking away
All I will say is I'm not going down today
I'm breaking away
I will leave this place and find a better day

And now the weight is sinking
With the bird the bottom of the sea
And now I can finally say
"The black sheep is no longer me"
and I never fit in your plan
So you left me far behind
But you never really knew me
Cause you never really took the time

And the church bells chime
And it's right now
And right now's my time

Cause I'm breaking away
All I will say is I'm not going down today
I'm breaking away

I will leave this place and find a better day
