"Break Free" as written by Mark Christopher Batson, David John Matthews, Boyd C. Tinsley, Leroi H. Moore, Carter A. Beauford and Stefan K. Lessard....
She gives a wicked ride
Yes she does
She says “I make you wanna climb right out yourself”
Break free
But have to give up your life
But I was thinking
I love to get inside you

I drink your poison if you fill the cup
You make me crazy baby, don't let up
And if I'm fallin' I don't want to stop
I give up everything to have your love
I drink your poison if you fill the cup
I drink your tears but don't you
Cry cry, cry cry

She is a wicked heart
Yes she is
She goes down so hard,
She might never come back
She's gonna break free
She loves to laugh
But I was thinkin'
I'd love to get some of that, girl

I drink your poison if you fill the cup
You make me crazy baby, don't let up
And if I'm fallin' I don't want to stop
I give up everything to have your love
I drink your poison if you fill the cup
I drink your tears but don't you
Cry cry, cry cry

She's gonna break free

She's gonna break free
That's right
Gonna break free

I drink your poison if you fill the cup
You make me crazy baby, don't let up
And if I'm fallin' I don't want to stop
I give up everything to have your love
I drink your poison if you fill the cup
I drink your tears but don't you
Cry cry, cry cry

The way she does me
The way she hates to love me
You fill the cup, I drink you up, baby

I drink your poison if you fill the cup
You make me crazy baby, don't let up
And if I'm fallin' I don't want to stop
I give up everything to have your love
I drink your poison if you fill the cup
I drink your tears, yea

She's on the side, missing
And all that I could go
The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, baby
She gonna lock eyes with me
Flies away off of me
Oh ya

    General Commenttydeus, the songs that i have commented on reflects daves interpretation of an absolute idea from the spirits reflection as it is witnessed in the finite physical circumstances. (it is mostly vague in symbolic description as is the new testament is viewed the same way).
    Its not rehashed religious diatribe but it can be seen as deep spirit content. it doesnt box any idea in but expresses all of the highest values man can view his circumstances as well as nature in.

    in this world no one will love another to their death..thats altruistic and bold but rarely accomplished. yet all humans will die for Gods love. thats inevitable.

    I simply make a viewpoint of the absolute origin of the idea..its daves individual perspective of how he describes what he is sensing.

    in this song "breaking free" is being released of a habit. released from believing a lie.
    during the experience or intervention someone will take the anger and wrath and negative consequences as the habit or belief structure is spent and a better nature eventually replaces it.

    this is spirit warfare with a physical reaction. you could call it an exorcism if you like

    it carries a whiplash of a physical consequence with the victim becoming the sacrifice as he is seen rescuing the loved one that is inflicted.

    why do you think all that sacrificial lamb stuff is taked about so much and made so strong a subject.

    mankind becomes that sacrificial lamb to his neighbor..
    thats the absolute idea...

    General CommentI feel like this song is loaded with lust and desire. Sounds like he really wants to have and keep her but knows she's going to "break free" at some point. Like she's at a point in her life where she's unbound to paths that anything could happen to her. And I get the impression that it's also about the intensity between two people when the chemistry is just mind blowing.

    General Comment"I drink your poison if you fill the cup," I love that line. I think this represents the meaning of this song very weel, it fits with "Kill the King." I think both are about having a crush/infactuation with someone, because you'd do anything for them whether it's good or bad and they give you meaning again or break you free as Dave is saying. You'd do anything for them to find those same feelings for yourself, they're worth more than gold.

    General CommentHe played this song in Raleigh and it was incrediable. Hopefully the new album will be a lot better than Stand Up, and judging by this song it looks that way.

    General Commenti saw the debut of this song at darien lake this summer...absolutely killer. musically its awsome with the jam at the end and the sweet catchy sax line...the lyrics are great what are you talking about...i think it could possibly be about dave being tempted with an affair...its obviously sexual "i want to get inside you" "she goes down so hard"...and he refers to the girl as poison and that to have her he has to give up his life hence the affair...just my two cents but a killer song

    General Commentbreakfree is about releasing a wrong choice within yourself.

    when we ask God to forgive us of a wrong..we recognize both sides of the issue as well as the fact we cannot solve the problem ourself. we must let go of the problem, giving it to God to resolve...and breakfree of its hold on our life.

    breakfree is about two persons. one having the problem and the other the answer. the problem must be released and set free..or the person must break free of its power of hold.

    you could call it an intervention where one persons cup contains the poison and another persons cup contains the cure and their sharing drinks together.

    this song relates to crush and crash where two come together and exchange whats within themselves

    General CommentOk, I already posted on this song once but I was talking about this song to a friend who gave me their opinion, which I thought was interesting because it never crossed my mind. The song can be interpreted as suicide, she's gonna break free. This song could be seen as almost a Romeo & Juliet situation. Several lines can be interpreted this way. Dave says he'll give up everything to have her love, which could be life. He talks about climbing out of yourself, possibly your soul after death. "You might have to give up your life or I'll give up everything to have your love." The woman he's singing about is crying, which can be seen as she is depressed, and Dave is telling her he'll follow her. There's a few other lines that support this, "she goes down so hard she might never come back."

    This isn't necessarily my opinion, but an interpretation I thought was interesting. Me2, do you really believe every song is about God? You need to step outside of that box you're in every once in a while.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about him and his wife. He was full of lust and thats all he thought about when he asked her to marry him and he wasnt thinking that he was giving up his life for this woman.

    General CommentI don't think this song has any hidden religious or sexual meaning behind it. I can really relate to it though and it reminds me a lot of the themes of "crush" and "fool to think". To me it is about falling for someone who may or may not feel the same as you, but you're so wrapped up in the person that you feel like you would do whatever it takes to win them over.
