I'm breaking out, I'm breaking free
Tonight's the night for me
I've waited for this for so long
4-3-2-1 and I'll be gone
Wait till the guard is fast asleep
Wait till the darkness covers me
I'm breaking out, I'm breaking free

But all the years I've cried
Are satisfied tonight in the dark
I'm plotting my escape
Tell these crooked metal bars
It's the jailbreak
And I might die or I might fly away
But tonight is the night of the jailbreak

I couldn't find the key so this spoon will have to do
I've got a naked poster to cover up the hole when I'm through
Though all my friends are for me
My chances don't look good, oh no

Through all the years I've cried
Are satisfied tonight in the dark
I'm plotting my escape
Tell these crooked metal bars
It's the jailbreak
And I might die or I might fly away
But tonight is the night of the jailbreak

(Oh man,
Here we go)

I'm breaking out
Tonight in the dark
I'm plotting my escape
Tell these crooked metal bars
It's the jailbreak
And I might die or I might fly away
But tonight is the night of the jailbreak
Ooh, jailbreak

    General CommentTo me, this is about wanting to take a chance on freedom, knowing you might not make it- freedom is worth that risk.
