"Cannot Even (Break Free)" as written by and Shingai Elizabeth Maria Shoniwa....
You are alone, that's that
Nobody's home inside your head
You cannot even speak
Think everybody thinks you're a freak

And you wish you could be
On a magic carpet
Yes you wish you could be
Ever so transported from here, from here

Why don't you break free, break free
I want you to break free
Break free break free
Give me something, say we
Break free break free
I want you to break free
Break free break free
Give me something

Get on, get on wanna wanna (etc)

This time it is for real
And this time it's you who's making the move So tell me what's the deal?
Will it be you who's breaking the rules

Still you wish you could be
On a magic carpet (somewhere)
Yes you wish you could be
Ever so transported from here, from here

Why don't you break free, break free
I want you to break free
Break free break free
Give me something, say we
Break free break free
I want you to break free
Break free break free
Give me something
And get on get on
Wanna wanna get on get on
See its time to get on, get out

It's time to go (ha ha ha ha ha ha x 18) Wipe your eye I'm on your side No compromise It's time to go Wipe your eye It's time to fly

Get on

    General CommentI think it is speaking form either some type of abuse or mental disorder or addiction to break free and live, love when she says get on...

    General CommentI feel like she's using this song to reach out to people. Possibly anyone that's feeling trapped and/or depressed.
    I love this band.
