"Breaking Away" as written by Tobias Sammet and Tobias / Sammet....
Don't wait my friend. We better don't think twice.
Time to fell the prison guard you gotta realize:
No turning back again. Therefor it's all too late
New horizons wait

I know the time has come
To leave your past behind.
And now the time has come
to stop them controlling your mind.

Breaking away!
All we can do now is break away.
Otherwise she will be dying
while both of us are lying here in chains.

Breaking away!
All we can do now is break away!
Oh otherwise she will be dying
while both of us are lying here in chains.

Always been a novice in quest for paradise.
Hope they will forgive me for I apostatize.
I can't be no hypocrite, can't wear a masquerade
New horizons wait

And now the time has come to go another way.
To learn for life and to grow ripe
and prevent the decay

Breaking away!
All we can do now is break away.
Otherwise she will be dying
while both of us are lying here in chains.

Breaking away!
All we can do now is break away!
Oh otherwise she will be dying
while both of us are lying here in chains.

Breaking away!
It is so hard to lay down what I've been.
But I must go even if my way leads to Hades

Breaking away!
All we can do now is break away.
Otherwise she will be dying
while both of us are lying here in chains.

Breaking away!
All we can do now is break away!
Oh otherwise she will be dying
while both of us are lying here in chains.

    General CommentThis is a refreshingly simple song. Lugaid the Druid is helping Gabe escape from the prison to go and free Anna.

    ‘Always been a novice in quest for paradise.
    Hope they will forgive me for I apostatize.
    I can't be no hypocrite, can't wear a masquerade...
    New horizons wait...’

    Gabe finally grows some balls, and decides to say ‘screw the Church, Anna is more important. They’ll forgive me if I turn out to be right’.

    ’And now the time has come to go another way.
    To learn for life and to grow ripe
    and prevent the decay...’

    Gabe decides to learn life his own way, and become his own man, not keep rotting away as a cog in the Church engine (or, more literally, in his prison cell).
