Breaking out of this dark cell
destroy the iron chain
we all here have our prison
that we’re trying to escape
been stuck here for ages
been waiting an eternity
but today I’m getting out
and I leave broken doors behind

cause it’s a prison that we call life
and we all try to be free
so get up, grab your things together
and flee
Run down to the horizon
leave your shadow for the night
‘cause we’re young, we’re free
and we’re doin’ alright

What are you demanding?
What do you want from life?
Sittin’ around and working 9 to 5,
on vacation once or twice?
This is not the intention
so stop foolin’ yourself!
Grab your luggage, pick your favorite book
and leave everything else behind.

Too much entertainment
artificial guards for your cell
C’mon get it, it is so simple
just switch it off and run away
yeah tear it down and strife for more!
