Breed Apart
Sepultura Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Creepy crawl on concrete and dust
Asphalt jungle piles of crust

Non sense thoughts inside the mind
What really means
What I want?

Open up your mind and go your own way
Open up your mind and go your own way
Open up your mind and go your own way
Open up your mind and go your own way

Straight old thoughts
To force you down
Raping rape
Breed apart

Open up your mind and go your own way
Open up your mind and go your own way
Open up your mind and go your own way
Open up your mind and go your own way

Open up your mind and go your own way
Open up your mind and go your own way




Open up your mind and go your own way
Open up your mind

Overall Meaning

and go your own way


The song "Breed Apart" by Brazilian heavy metal band Sepultura is a commentary on societal pressures and the urge to conform. The opening lines portray the harsh reality of living in a concrete jungle where the only thing that grows is dust. The next lines show the turmoil one faces in their mind when trying to discern between what society wants and what they truly desire. The lyrics are a reflection of the struggle to find one's individuality in a world that is constantly trying to homogenize people into conformists.


The chorus of the song is a call to action to free one's mind and break away from societal norms. The lyrics encourage listeners to follow their own path and not be forced into traditional structures that may restrict personal growth. The repetition of the phrase "open up your mind and go your own way" drives home the message of breaking free from the pack.


"Breap Apart" was released in 1991 as part of Sepultura's fourth studio album "Arise." The song was never released as a single, but it received critical acclaim for its frenetic pace and potent message. The band's unique blend of Brazilian percussion and thrash metal guitar riffs set "Breed Apart" apart from other songs of its time.
