Big Pig – I Can't Break Away lyrics

All my life I wanted to fly
Like the birds that you see way up in the sky
Making circles in the morning sun
Flying high in the sky till the day is done

I can't break away like a child in his fantasy
Punching holes in the wall of reality
All my life I wanted to fly
But I don't have the wings and I wonder why

I can't break away
Woah, well, my momma told me when I was young
Stand tall birdie, you're number one
She said, but you can be what you want to be
But you can't change the course of your destiny

I can't break away, oh no, no, no, no
I can't break away, well, I can't, I can't
I can't break away, oh no, no, no, no
I can't break away, I can't break away

    It's all about overcoming the physical boundaries of life and that somewhere, somehow, there is a way. But, even though their does exist a way there is still a destiny from which no matter how far we try to distance ourselves is unavoidable and must one day be faced and dealt with. You can punch holes in the walls of reality because it is a state of mind, a point of view, a perspective. But destiny? Well, that's inevitable.
