"Escape" as written by Jonathan Cain, Steve Perry and Neal Schon....
He's just a young boy out of school
Livin' his world like he wants to
They're makin' laws, but they don't understand
Turns a boy in to a fightin' man

They won't take me
They won't break me

No one could tell him what to do
Had to learn everything the hard way
He's on the street breakin' all the rules
I'm tellin' you that he's nobody's fool

They won't take me
They won't break me
No, no, no

Oh now he's leavin'
Gettin' out of the masquerade
Oh gotta go

I'm finally out in the clear and I'm free
I've got dreams I'm livin' for
I'm movin' on where they'll never find me
Rollin' on to anywhere

I'll break away
Yes I'm on my way
Leavin' today
Yes I'm on my way

Just when you think you had it all figured out
Runnin' scared can change your mind
I never knew I had so much to give
How hard times can fool you

Oh I'm okay, I'm alright
Feelin' good out on your own
I'll break away, I'll break away tonight
I've got dreams I'm livin' for

I'll break away
Yes, I'm on my way
I'm leaving', leavin' today
Yes, I'm on my way

This is my escape
Yes, I'm on my way
I'll break away
Yes, I'm on my way

I'll break away
Yes, I'm on my way
I'm leaving', leavin' today
Yes, I'm on my way

This is my escape
Yes, I'm on my way
I'll break away
Yes, I'm on my escape
