about

Upbeat and catchy, "The Break" is SJATM's go-to tune.

lyrics

Wake up
Break up
Tip-top shape up
'Cuz you can't make it up some other time -
Rush up
Hush up
Push up
Shush up
You don't wanna mush up, you're makin' good time,
Get your caffeine, take your pills
Whatever gives the proper thrills
But it won't take effect until you've got it together...

Will it
Kill it
Fill it
Bill it
If you got skill, it's a piece of cake
Find it
Bind it
Lose your mind, it
Won't be blind if you've got faith
Write your will and say your prayers
Hold your breath and keep awares
They say, you've always got to be prepared for anything to happen...

Oh! You're gonna make your break.
Oh - so what's it gonna take?
Oh! You're gonna make your break;
Just hold on, hold on!
Oh! You're gonna make your case, 'cause
Oh - you've got a lot to say,
Oh! Don't ever fade away,
Just hold on, hold on, oh!

Woah, Woah, Woah, Woah, Woah, Woah, Woah, Woah...

Good luck
It could suck
You might get f*cked
But with a buck, you'll be on your way
'Cuz they say
May say
Nay say
Hey say -
(Don't count on say, or you won't get paid.)
But if you think you're "well-endowed"
You might stick out well in the crowd!
And who said that was not allowed?
Nobody special...

Oh! You're gonna make your break.
Oh - so what's it gonna take?
Oh! You're gonna make your break;
Just hold on, hold on!
Oh! You're gonna make your case, 'cause
Oh - you've got a lot to say,
Oh! Don't ever fade away,
Just hold on, hold on, oh!

--instrumental--

Break up - then
Make up
For the
Sake o'
Taking up your extra time, 'cuz
Who's the
Loser,
Cruisin', never
Bruisin'?
Don't pay him no mind.

'Cuz it'll catch up with 'im.
One day, it'll finally hit 'im!
That he's just another victim
And got nobody to share the blame

Oh! You're gonna make your break.
Oh - so what's it gonna take?
Oh! You're gonna make your break;
Just hold on, hold on!
Oh! You're gonna make your case, 'cause
Oh - you've got a lot to say,
Oh! Don't ever fade away,
Just hold on, hold on, oh!

Woah, Woah, Woah...etc.
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o (woah!)
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o (woah!)
O-o-o-o-o-ho-old-on (woah!)
O-o-o-o-o-ho-old-on (woah!)
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o (woah!)
O-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o (woah!)
O-o-o-o-o-ho-old-on (woah!)
O-o-o-o-o-ho-old-on (woah!)
