Break Out of the Trance

Go to work the foreman treats me like dirt
Day after day don’t realise how it hurts
Deep down inside justice burns like a flame
But I go straight home and treat my children the same

Who’s in charge of this program here?
Break out of the trance
I can’t get nowhere advancing to the rear
Break out of the trance, Break out of the trance
Break out of the trance

You don’t get this chance too often
When you’re out with your pals
You’ll be sick in the morning
But don’t think about that now
You’re an upstanding person
You’d never go too far
But you’re sitting with your friend who’s too drunk to walk
And he’s driving your car

We all know you haven’t lost your mind
Break out of the trance
But if you close your eyes you’re just the same as blind
Break out of the trance, Break out of the trance
Break out of the trance

We go to our workplace and tensions run deep
We’re under the stupor of the regimen we keep
The routine is comforting don’t wanna face the unknown
But what we really want is for freedom to be shown

Go and take what you’ve been taken for
Break out of the trance
You can’t miss it there’s only one real door
Break out of the trance, Break out of the trance
Break out of the trance
