"Break for It (Run While We Can)" as written by and Mark Christopher Batson David John Matthews....
Something I can't understand and talking

Stand up [Repeat: x 4]

I woke up to the angels
They're singin' in my head
You look so good naked next to me
An angel in my bed

Stand up [Repeat: x 4]

Feel like a drug
That's cookin' in my veins
So out of my mind
I'll shoot you up

Stand up [Repeat: x 4]

Water save my soul
Stand up

Like smokey fire
It's burning in us all
You drop me in the water
Lift me out
Save my soul

Stand up [Repeat: x 4]

(lots of mumbling, lie in our graves-ish stuff throughout song)

Water save my soul
Stand up [Repeat until fade]

    General CommentI usually look up the meaning of songs here rather than figuring them out myself, but there's no other comments on the meaning and after going through the lyrics twice, i might have an idea. I think it has to do with Dave wanting to get away from all fans/press/news about him. But i think he wants him and his wife specifically (and his kids) to get away from it all. Also, he played this song a lot starting 2010 and took a huge break 2011 (except for the few caravan shows).
