Breaking Out

Breaking Out

Verse 1
Breaking the rules is all he ever done
and they say he's never going to change.
He escaped from the system that chained his family,
he's never going to stop until they gun him down.

Verse 2 
Just like a movie, like the one they White Heat,
on top of the world until he falls.
Won't be a victim of society,
he's going to win, he's going to take it all.

Chorus
He's breaking out, trying to find a way,
he's reaching out, got to have his way.
Never going to be a victim, he don't live that way.
never going to burn out until he dies.

Verse 3 
He remembers the graveyard, he remembers all the names,
so many names that were forgot.
He watched his father work to an early grave,
he remembers his mother crying as he died.

Chorus
He's breaking out, trying to find a way,
he's reaching out, got to have his way.
Never going to be a victim, he don't live that way.
never going to burn out until he dies.

Mid
He never gives an inch, always takes a mile,
never trusts a man with a crocodile smile.
He always plays it cool, watches every step,
keeping out of trouble, he's one step ahead.
He's heading for the top, never going to stop,
never work and die like his dear old man.
He never trusts a woman, never trusts a man,
they always will betray you, you got to understand.

Chorus
He's breaking out, trying to find a way,
he's reaching out, got to have his way.
Never going to be a victim, he don't live that way.
never going to burn out until he dies.
