"Break the Chain" Lyrics Lyrics by Tena Clark Music by Tena Clark/Tim Heintz Intro- I raise my arms to the sky On my knees I pray I'm not afraid anymore I will walk through that door Walk, dance, rise Walk, dance, rise I can see a world where we all live Safe and free from all oppression No more rape or incest, or abuse Women are not a possession You've never owned me, don't even know me I'm not invisible, I'm simply wonderful I feel my heart for the first time racing I feel alive, I feel so amazing I dance cause I love Dance cause I dream Dance cause I've had enough Dance to stop the screams Dance to break the rules Dance to stop the pain Dance to turn it upside down Its time to break the chain, oh yeah Break the Chain Dance, rise Dance, rise In the middle of this madness, we will stand I know there is a better world Take your sisters & your brothers by the hand Reach out to every woman & girl This is my body, my body's holy No more excuses, no more abuses We are mothers, we are teachers, We are beautiful, beautiful creatures I dance cause I love Dance cause I dream Dance cause I've had enough Dance to stop the screams Dance to break the rules Dance to stop the pain Dance to turn it upside down It's time to break the chain, oh yeah Break the Chain, oh yeah Break the Chain Dance Break Inst. Dance, rise Dance, rise Sister won't you help me, sister won't you rise x4 Dance, rise Dance, rise Sister won't you help me, sister won't you rise x4 This is my body, my body's holy No more excuses, no more abuses We are mothers, we are teachers, We are beautiful, beautiful creatures I dance cause I love Dance cause I dream Dance cause I've had enough Dance to stop the screams Dance to break the rules Dance to stop the pain Dance to turn it upside down Its time to break the chain, oh yeah Break the Chain, oh yeah Break the Chain (Repeat chorus)
