I look up on this mountain and marvel it seems so tall
so tragically its fragile I'm waiting for it to fall
 enormous mass it's made of glass instead of with a substance that's stronger 
you thought that it would hold me I can't take it any longer 

I'm gonna break out, I'm gonna break out
I'm gonna take all of my love back on the way out
I'm gonna break out, gonna break out
I'm gonna take all of my love back on the way out
I'm free now, I'm gonna break out
I'm gonna take all of my love back on the way out

The fortress of our trust, a mirage of a mighty mound
I let you build around me above me it seems profound
But much to my surprise it receives a little hit and it crumbles 
I'm leaning at the core, no support, all I can do is stumble 


A streak of light exposes all the glass 
For stone this mountain can no longer pass
The confidence we shared has been a facade 
I'm breaking out and leaving only the shards 

 Formidable destruction surrounding me only looks 
I bust right through the glass, one attempt and that's all it took
I wanted to remain feeling safe, but it just can't sustain me
It feels more like a trap, gotta break out won't let it contain me

Ah, here I go.
