Song Description

Upbeat song about a guy who's sick of the daily grind, and decides it's time to hit the road and live a little.

Story Behind the Song



(Leon Wesley Walls)

I've been chained to this time clock half my life
and it's bled more life from me than my ex wife
but I'll break these chains when I walk out today
I've served my time and now it's time for my chains to breakaway

breakaway freedom's on my mind
paid my dues served my time
won't know where the road leads till I go
breakaway adios goodbye
gonna live before I die
today is my independence day time to breakaway

why should I keep on doin what I do
I I'm walkin now I've more than paid my dues
why I could punch this clock till I'm old and gray
and for my trouble have a gold watch a party and a cake

this life is leadin nowhere nothin's here for me
and for the first time as my shackles breakaway
I know I'm finally free

my friends believe I've gone out of my mind
but there's more to life than what I've left behind
dreams still burn within my heart from younger days
today my dreams and I walked out and saw our chains breakaway
