"I Can't Break Away" as written by Mitch Bottler and Gary Zekley....
All my life I wanted to fly
Like the birds that you see way up in the sky
Making circles in the morning sun
Flying high in the sky 'till the day is done
(I can't break away)
Like a child in his fantacy
Punching holes in the walls of reality
All my life I wanted to fly
But I don't have the wings and I wonder why
(I can't breakaway)

Woha, well moma told me,
When I was young,
Stand tall girl
Your numer one
(she said)
But you can't be what you wanna be
But you can shake the course of your destiny
I can't break away
Ah-min-ah, do-ki-do, ah-mah-neh-la.
Well no, no ,no ,no, no
I can't break away
Ah-min-ah, do-ki-do, ah-mah-neh-la.
Oh yeah,
I share,
I share you, who?
One is one
(one)
And two is two
(two)
You want me
And I hang you
Black is Black (black is black)
And white is white (whit is white)
So come out in the middle
'Till midnight
I can't break away
Ah-min-ah, do-ki-do, ah-mah-neh-la.
Well no, no ,no ,no, no
I can't break away
Ah-min-ah, do-ki-do, ah-mah-neh-la.
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah-heh-heh

Well moma told me,
When I was young,
Stand tall girl (stand tall girl)
Your number one (your number one)
(she said)
You can't be what you wanna be
But you can change the course of your destiny
I can't break away
Ah-min-ah, do-ki-do, ah-mah-neh-la.
No, no, no ,no, no
I can't break away
Ah-min-ah, do-ki-do, ah-mah-neh-la.
I can't, I can't, I can't break away
Ah-min-ah, do-ki-do, ah-mah-neh-la.
No, no, no., no, no
I can't break away
Ah-min-ah, do-ki-do, ah-mah-neh-la.
Woo ooo ooo oh oh
I can't break away (I can't break away)

    General CommentAbsolutely awesome song, I love the tribal feel it manifests throughout the lyrics and melody. Though i've always felt the meaning was fairly obvious = someone needing to break away but not being able to. If theres a more elaborate meaning I'd love to know~
