The Specials

The Specials (sometimes called The Special AKA ) are an English 2 Tone ska revival band formed in 1977 in Coventry, England. Their music combines a "danceable ska and rocksteady beat with punk's energy and attitude", and had a "more focused and informed political and social stance" than other ska groups. The band wore mod-style "1960s period rude boy outfits (pork pie hats, tonic and mohair suits, and loafers)." In 1980, the song "Too Much Too Young", the lead track on their The Special AKA Live!

For too long, i have lived in a trap built of lies 
But one day I'm gonna breakout because at last I've realised 

Breakdown the door of the trap that you're in 
You've got to breakout before the four walls have closed in 

Breakdown the door 

Do it you've gotta 
You've gotta do what? 
You've gotta do what you wanna 
You've gotta get out 
But you can't because you're up to your neck 
And there's no turning back so you try to forget 

The cracks have started to appear 
You want to get away 
Before the fun turns into tears 
You wish that you could 

Breakdown the door 

You've got to breakdown 
Before you breakdown 
You've got to breakdown, breakdown the door 

Go, where?, wherever you want 
You'd better go if your gonna 
Do what you want 
But you can't because you're up to your neck 
And there's no turning back so you try to forget 

Before the cracks start to appear you want to get away 
Before the days turn into the years you wish that you could 

Breakdown the door 

Everybody wants to breakdown the door Of the trap that they're in 
Breakout before the four walls have closed in 

Breakdown the door 

Breakdown the door Of the trap that you're in 
Breakout before the four walls have closed in
