"Break The Chains" as written by Dave Mccracken and Nana,....
Cold hand surrounds me
I feel the walls around me closing in
And my chest is getting tighter
Cold winds are blowing on
What you left hanging in the air
And your words are getting louder

She said
Sorry but you're never gonna dance again
But my feet just keeps me moving
Trying to break the chain
And I feel like running, and I feel no pain
I feel like running
When I'm lost within my frame

Sharp tongues cut the air
And melt into rain
When it falls on my hand
Is it 'cause I'm gettin' wiser
Far from the ski slope
I feel the earth come running over me
And I feel a little lighter

She said
Sorry but you're never gonna dance again
But my feet just keeps me moving
Trying to break the chain
And I feel like running, and I feel no pain
I feel like running
When I'm lost within my frame

She said
Sorry but you're never gonna dance again
But my feet just keeps me moving
Trying to break the chain
And I feel like running, and I feel no pain
I feel like running
When I'm lost within my frame

    General Commentthe lyrics are quite literal here. i've read she had to quit a ballet career due to an injury, which led to her becoming Oh Land

    General CommentTo me this is about her personal experience. I remember reading an interview in which she said about having an accident at some point of her life which prevented her from pursuring a career as a professional ballet dancer. She said that she started to write songs out of sorrow that she felt after learning she won't be able to become a ballerina. I guess this song describes how she felt when she first learnt about this ("She said sorry but you're never gonna dance again" may refer to a doctor/nurse) and how she tries to overcome the physical inability ("my feet just keep me moving, trying to break the chain, and I feel like running").
