BREAK FREE OF THE SEA song lyrics 
by Joel Sattler 

back in the summer of 73 
I went down to the Mexican Pie 
young and stupid and full of myself 
thinking of pleasure and no one else 
where the sun can cut your skin like a knife 
and I faced the greatest challenge 
of my life 

I walked in the tide there was no one there 
I didn't even know that I should be scared 
rip tide ran pulled me off of my feet 
and into the bay don't know how deep 
and there I almost caught my death 
I could not catch my breath 

break free of the sea 
break free of the sea 
cause the sea just wants to pull you down 
but if your heart can make behave 
climb up on and surf the wave 
till you get back to solid ground 
break free 
break free of the sea 


when I was a kid 
I never thought of what I did 
did anything for long 
did everything I knew was wrong 
but reality 
is university 
and when you graduate 
hope that it's not too late 
to tell your daughters 
and tell your sons 
you don't have to stop 
if you learn to run 

break free of the sea 
break free of the sea 
cause the sea just wants to pull you down 
but if your heart can make behave 
climb up on and surf the wave 
till you get back to solid ground 
break free 
break free of the sea 

it's hard to believe your fate is but 
a roll of the dice a matter of luck 
and it can all come crashing down 
to moment of instead 
when you make the wrong choice 
and you wake up dead 

so there must must be a God 
who watches over all us fools 
and every day 
is a hard knock school 

and every sunrise 
is a lesson learned 
that Heaven is real 
and only hellfire burns 

break free of the sea 
break free of the sea 
cause the sea just wants to pull you down 
but if your heart can make behave 
climb up on and surf the wave 
till you get back to solid ground 
break free 
break free of the sea 

if you can learn to swim 
then you can make it in 
if you just break free 
of the sea
