Is it too late for this machine to stop?
The worst thing is knowing that you’re a cog,
Wake up for another day to pass,
How many times has this year gone too fast?

Its your life, are you fulfilled?
Or do you see time as something to be killed?
Is life there to be embraced?
Or are you just looking to escape!

Breakout! claim this time for yourself.
Breakout! You’ve got to live for you & no-body else.

I’m not here to preach but I want to say,
There's got to be something wrong with all work & no play.
Survive to work, or Work to Survive?
When do we get to feel alive?

On our package holidays,
With our pre-packed food?
Packaged entertainment, all for me & you.
Sit down, switch on the TV,
Check your pulse, check you’re still breathing!

Breakout! claim this time for yourself.
Breakout! You’ve got to live for you & no-body else.

At times like these it’s hard to know what to say,
as you can only live your life your own way,
But there are things that bring me down and make me sad,
that I don’t want to hear anymore.
Like the people who tell you, your dreams should be ignored,
you can tell them from me that that’s bullshit.
and the people so obsessed with the ‘real world’
that they don’t even live in it anymore, they just...

run in circles, (running) round & round,
waiting for something to break them out.
run in circles, (running) round & round,
waiting for something to break them out.
