"Break My Back" as written by Claus Grabke, Jens Goessling, Jan Hendrik Meyer, Axel Pralat and Steffen Wilmking....
They wanted to break my back, wanted to hold me back from being free.
They had a part for me in society, but that wasn't me.
They gave me an early start, when they broke my heart I needed to see.
That if I wanted to be myself I couldn't be myself without me!

So here I am!
I stepped out!
To be free!

'Cause with all that's left inside of me, with my back against the wall.
I can still decide what's best for me, I can still say all I want.
"now that I'm free!"

I needed to learn the truth, I had to find my own destiny.
Everybody would pass me by, I couldn't pacify the urge in me!
Cause I was given wings to fly, that I was meant to try can't you see.
That if I wanted to be myself I couldn't be myself without me!

So here I am!
I stepped out!
To be free!

'Cause with all that's left inside of me, with my back against the wall.
I can still decide what's best for me, I can still stay in control.
Now that I'm free!

You didn't think that I would try
You never knew what's on my mind
You didn't think I'd really try to be more than this!?
I had to live in agony
I knew you're looking down on me
But I always knew that I would be so much more than this!

'Cause with all that's left inside of me, with my back against the wall.
I can still decide what's best for me, I can still say all I want!
"Now that I'm free!"
