"Breakin' Out" is song from the episode "Escape from Phineas Tower". It is played while Phineas and Ferb try and escape from their advanced escape tower.


Danny Jacob: I used to get stuck on the simplest of things
I never tried flying or spreading my wings
What I want to convey is that I'm getting away
'Cause tonight I'm breakin' out! (He's breakin' out)

I went from park to neutral
Now I'm shifting to drive
'Cause you gotta depart
If you want to arrive
No more biding my time
With these eternal rhymes
'Cause tonight I'm breakin' out!

(I'm breakin' out)
From the things that were holding me back
(I'm breakin' out)
In every wall, if you look there's a crack
(I'm breakin' out)
In the end that's what life's all about
When the wall's closing in
You know it's time to begin
Breakin' out!
