"BREAK AWAY"

Verse 1
There's a politician lurking in the streets,
Out pressing flesh with everyone he meets.
He campaigns in unconventional ways,
Using flatteries and subtleties in every phrase.
He's running a-muck on the TV shows,
Writing books, & singing on the radio.

Verse 2
The evening news says he's a diplomat of style,
Easing complications, warring nations reconcile.
A New World Order is the order of his day,
Economies are strengthening with what he's got to say.
Computerization takin' over everything;
Soon there'll be no need for human beings' thinking.

Bridge 1
I can't take it, lying down in my living room.
I can't shake it, there must be something I can do.
It's more than a warning on a subway wall.
There are signs every which way of the way the Witch will fall.

Chorus
Break away, I gotta break free!
Their shackles aren't for me!
Break away, I gotta break free!
Their shackles aren't for me!

I can’t take it, lying in my living room,
I can’t shake it, there must be something I can do.
I can’t take it, lying in my living room,
I can’t shake it, there must be something I can do.

Verse 3
I sent a letter to the mayor of my town
To see if he knew exactly what was going down.
His reply was to be expected of the norm:
He told me to relax, and to simply conform.
That's all it took to make me look to the Lord above.
There's got to be more for me, and that's all I'm thinking of.

Repeat Chorus

Verse 4
Satellites are watching down upon the world today,
Watching and listening to every word we say.
But beyond the satellites, connecting to our hearts,
Is a Higher Being who's got something to impart.
He's breakin' down the barriers to reflect His soul
Upon the ones who want to come to know Who's in control.

Bridge 2
There's an enemy who's hanging out in your hood,
But don't be deceived in believing he's good.
He's orchestrating a worldwide heist.
You may know his name; he's the Antichrist.

Repeat Chorus twice
