Breaking the Chains
Dokken Lyrics


Sit there thinkin'
In your room
You feel the pressure
You're goin' crazy too
The walls around you
Closin' in
You need a change

Claustophobic
Feelin' scared
You need somebody
But no one seems to care
A one way ticket
A change of pace
You've had enough
Can't take no more

(Chorus 1)
Breaking the chains around you
Nobody else can bind you
Take a good look around you
Now you're breaking the chains

Got this letter
Came today
From my baby
Who left me yesterday
Said she loves me
She'll come back
She wants to try

I won't let her
She'll be upset
I know it's better
Than somethin' I'll regret
She's been dishonest
And insincere
I lost my mind
Twenty times a year

(Chorus 2)
Breaking the chains around me
Nobody else can bind me
Take a good look around me
Now I'm breaking the chains

(Solo)

Woke up today
I'm alone
I look around
But baby you were gone
But I don't mind
And I don't worry
I will survive

I'm alone
Now that you're gone
Don't need nobody
To hold or tie me down
I broke the chains
So let me be
I've gotta be free

(Repeat Chorus 2)
(Repeat Chorus 2)

@William Duckworth Dokken also wrote straight forward heavy metal songs, not just radio friendly music.

1. Kiss of death is straight up traditional heavy metal, a song written about aids.
2. Lighting strikes again is pure heavy metal
3. When heaven comes down is also pure heavy metal
4. Tooth and nail is basically speed metal
5. Til the livin' end also pure heavy metal
6. Unchain the night. Also heavy metal.
7. Lost behind the wall (song about communism and berlin wall) heavy metal.
8. Don't close your eyes, also heavy metal.
